This Statement is based on the previous COPE Code of Ethics and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors (see below) and the current COPE Core Practices.
Journal Publication Ethics Guidelines
The publication of articles in the peer-reviewed journal JIGE is an important foundation in the development of coherent knowledge and a. 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. Therefore, it is important to agree on the standards of ethical behavior expected for all parties involved in the act of publishing: authors, journal editors, peer reviewers, publishers and the public.
Publishers and Editors
LPPM Ekasakti University as the publisher of JIGE takes the duty of maintaining all publications very seriously and we are aware of our ethical and other responsibilities. We are committed to ensuring that advertising, print, or other commercial revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions. In addition, LPPM Ekasakti University and the Editorial Board will assist in communication with other journals and/or publishers if this is useful and necessary.
- Publication decisions: JIGE journal editors are responsible for deciding which articles submitted to the journal should be published. Validation of work that is relevant and important to researchers and readers should always drive such decisions. Editors may be guided by the journal's editorial board policy and limited by applicable legal requirements regarding reputation, copyright infringement and plagiarism. Editors may consult other editors or reviewers in making this decision.
- Fair play: Editors write scripts for their intellectual property regardless of the author's race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, national origin, or political philosophy.
- Confidentiality: Editors and any editorial staff do not disclose any information about submitted manuscripts to anyone other than the respective authors, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorials and publishers, as described.
- Disclosure and conflicts of interest: Material not seen in submitted manuscripts may not be used in the editor's own research without the written consent of the author.
- Contribution to Editorial Decisions: Peer review assists the editor in making editorial decisions and through the editorial communications with the author may also assist the author in improving the paper.
- Promptness: Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse himself from the review process.
- Confidentiality: Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except as authorized by the editor.
- Standards of Objectivity: Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.
- Acknowledgment of Sources: Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also call to the editor's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper 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 advantage. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
- Reporting standards: Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable.
- Data Access and Retention: Authors are asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such data (consistent with the ALPSP-STM Statement on Data and Databases), if practicable, and should in any event be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication.
- Originality and Plagiarism: The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.
- Multiple, Redundant or Concurrent Publication: An author should not, in general, publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.
- Acknowledgment of Sources: Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.
- Authorship of the Paper: Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included on the paper and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.
- Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest: All authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflicts of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.
- Fundamental errors in published works: When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
