Statement of Publication Ethics and Malpractice
Journal of Community Service for the Indonesian Society is a peer-reviewed journal. This statement explains the ethical behavior of all parties involved in the act of publishing articles in this journal, including the authors, editor-in-chief, the editorial board, peer-reviewers and the publishers of Berlian Pustaka Indonesia (BPI). This statement is based on the COPE Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.
Journal Publication Ethics Guidelines
The peer-reviewed publication of articles in the Quality Community Service Journal is an important foundation in the development of a coherent and respected knowledge network. This is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree on standards of ethical behavior that are expected for all parties involved in the act of publishing: authors, journal editors, peer reviewers, publishers and the public.
BPI as the publisher of the Indonesian Community Service Journal takes the task of maintaining all stages of publishing very seriously and we are aware of our ethical and other responsibilities. We are committed to ensuring that advertising, reprint or other commercial revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions. In addition, BPI and the Editorial Board will assist in communication with other journals and/or publishers if this is useful and necessary.
The editor of the Indonesian Community Service Journal is responsible for deciding which articles submitted to the journal should be published. The validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers should always drive such decisions. Editors may be guided by the discretion of the journal's editorial board and limited by applicable legal requirements regarding defamation, copyright infringement and plagiarism. Editors may consult other editors or reviewers in making this decision.
An editor evaluates manuscripts at all times for their intellectual content regardless of the author's race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic origin, nationality, or political philosophy.
Editors and any editorial staff may not disclose any information about submitted manuscripts to anyone other than the respective authors, reviewers, prospective reviewers, other editorial advisors and publishers, as appropriate.
Disclosure and conflicts of interest
Unpublished material disclosed in a submitted manuscript may not be used in the editor's own research without the written consent of the author.
Contribution to Editorial Decisions
Peer reviews assist editors in making editorial decisions and through editorial communication with authors can also assist authors in improving papers.
Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that an immediate review is not possible, must notify the editor and withdraw from the review process.
Any manuscript received for review must be treated as a confidential document. They may not be shown or discussed with others except as permitted by the editor.
Review must be done objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees must express their views clearly with supporting arguments.
Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument has been previously reported must be accompanied by a relevant citation. Reviewers should also call the editor's attention any substantial similarities or overlaps between the manuscript under consideration and other published papers of which they have personal knowledge.
Disclosure and Conflict of Interest
Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal gain. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have a conflict of interest resulting from a competitive, collaborative, or other relationship or connection with the author, company, or any institution with which the paper is related.
Authors of the original research report must present an accurate account of the work done as well as an objective discussion of its significance. The underlying data must be represented accurately on paper. A paper must contain sufficient detail and references to allow others to replicate the work. Statements that are deceptive or intentionally inaccurate are unethical and unacceptable behavior.
Data Access and Retention
Authors are required to provide raw data with respect to the paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such data (consistent with the Database Statement), if possible, and under any circumstances. be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication
Originality and Plagiarism
Authors must ensure that they have written entirely original work, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others, then these have been properly cited or cited.
Multiple, Redundant, or Concurrent Publications
An author may not generally publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or major publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal at the same time constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.
Proper acknowledgment of the work of others should always be given. Authors should cite publications that were influential in determining the nature of the reported work.
Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, conduct, or interpretation of the reported study. All persons who have made significant contributions must be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they must be recognized or listed as contributors. Correspondence authors must ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included in the paper, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have approved its submission for publication.
Hazards and Human or Animal Subjects
If the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment that have unusual hazards inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify these in the manuscript.
Disclosure and Conflict of Interest
All authors must disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflicts of interest that may be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project must be disclosed.
