Publication Ethics

Publication Statement

Agrisema is a national journal in collaboration with Bestari which is published twice a year online by the Faculty of Agriculture, Universitas Sebelas Maret. This statement explains the ethical behavior of all parties involved in the publishing process including the author, editorial board, and publisher.

Publication Ethics Guidelines

The publication of articles in the Agrisema journal is a very important process in developing coherent and respectable knowledge. This is a direct reflection of the quality of the author’s work and the institutions that support the author or researchers. The articles reviewed contain and support scientific methodology. Therefore, it is important to agree on standards of ethical behavior expected for all parties involved in the publishing process including authors, editors in chief, editorial board, section editor, and publishers.

The Faculty of Agriculture, Universitas Sebelas Maret as the publisher of Agrisema responsible for supervising all stages of publication seriously and recognizing ethical and other responsibilities. The institution ensures that any advertising and other commercial revenues have no impact or influence on editorial decisions. Apart from that, the institutions also help to communicate with other journal publishers if it is useful and necessary.

The editor is responsible for deciding which articles will be processed and should be published. The validation of these works and their importance to authors and readers should support such a decision. The editors are guided by the journal’s editorial policies and constrained by laws covering libel, copyright, and plagiarism. Editors can discuss with other editors or assessment teams to decide on policies.

Expert editors and executive editors are prohibited from disclosing any information related to submitted manuscripts to anyone other than the author themselves, senior editor, Bestari, and publishers.

Conflict of interest
All unpublished content written in text is prohibited for use on research of the editors without confirmation from the author.

Assessment must be carried out objectively. Personal criticism of the author is not permitted. The reviewers must express their views using supporting arguments.

PReviewer should identify the relevant article that has not been cited by the authors. Any previously reported observations, derivations, or arguments must be accompanied by relevant citations. Reviewers should also ask editors to pay attention to similarities or overlaps between assessed and published texts.

Originality and Plagiarism
Authors must ensure that they have written their original article, in addition, they must cite properly if they take the article or words of other authors.

Malpractice Ethics
In general, an author is not allowed to have the same publication that has a similar research focus in more than one journal.


Screening Plagiarism

  1. Plagiarism and self-plagiarism are not allowed;
  2. 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;
  3. 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;
