Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement

Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement

Indonesian Journal of Applied Informatics (e-ISSN 2598-5981) is a peer-reviewed journal published by Diploma III Informatics Engineering, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Universitas Sebelas Maret. This statement clarifies the ethical behaviour of all parties involved in the act of publishing an article in this journal, including the author, the chief editor, the Editorial Board, the peer-reviewer­­­­­ and the publisher. This statement is based on COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.

Ethical Guideline for Journal Publication

The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed IJAI journal is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It 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 upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher, and the society.  

Universitas Sebelas Maret as the publisher of Indonesian Journal of Applied Informatics  takes its duties of guardianship over all stages of publishing extremely seriously, and we recognize 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. Also, the Universitas Sebelas Maret and Editorial Board will assist in communications with other journals and/or publishers where this is useful and necessary.

Publication decisions

The editor of Indonesian Journal of Applied Informatics  is responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published. The validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers must always drive such decisions. The editors may be guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and constrained by such legal requirements as shall then be in force regarding libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The editors may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.

Fair play

An editor at any time evaluates manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.


The editor and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate.

Disclosure and conflicts of interest

Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in an editor's own research without the express written consent of the author.

Duties of Reviewers

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.


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.


Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except as authorised 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 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.

Duties of Authors

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 acknowledgement 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.

Hazards and Human or Animal Subjects 

If the work involves chemicals, human, animals, procedures or equipment that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify these in the manuscript.

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 work 

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.

Kebijakan Penarikan/Pencabutan (Withdraw/Retracted) Artikel IJAI

Ini adalah prinsip umum komunikasi ilmiah bahwa editor jurnal bertanggung jawab sepenuhnya dan independen untuk memutuskan artikel mana yang dikirimkan ke jurnal yang akan diterbitkan. Dalam pengambilan keputusan ini editor berpedoman pada kebijakan dewan redaksi jurnal dan dibatasi oleh persyaratan hukum yang berlaku terkait fitnah, pelanggaran hak cipta dan plagiarisme. Hasil dari prinsip ini adalah pentingnya arsip ilmiah sebagai catatan permanen dan bersejarah dari transaksi artikel. Artikel yang telah dipublikasikan harus tetap ada, sebisa mungkin persis dan tidak diubah. Namun, terkadang keadaan dapat muncul di mana sebuah artikel diterbitkan yang nantinya harus ditarik kembali atau bahkan dihapus. Tindakan tersebut tidak boleh dianggap enteng dan hanya dapat terjadi dalam keadaan luar biasa. Dalam semua kasus, arsip resmi kami di IJAI akan menyimpan semua versi artikel, termasuk artikel yang ditarik kembali atau dihapus.

Penarikan artikel
Hanya digunakan untuk Artikel yang mewakili versi awal artikel dan terkadang mengandung kesalahan, atau mungkin telah dikirim dua kali secara tidak sengaja. Kadang-kadang, tetapi lebih jarang, artikel dapat mewakili pelanggaran kode etik profesional, seperti pengiriman ganda, klaim palsu tentang kepenulisan, plagiarisme, penggunaan data yang tidak benar, atau sejenisnya dapat "Ditarik" dari IJAI. Ditarik berarti bahwa konten artikel (HTML dan PDF) dihapus dan diganti dengan halaman HTML dan PDF hanya menyatakan bahwa artikel tersebut telah ditarik sesuai dengan Kebijakan IJAI.

Pencabutan artikel
Pelanggaran kode etik profesional, seperti pengiriman ganda, klaim palsu atas kepenulisan, plagiarisme, penggunaan data yang tidak benar, atau sejenisnya. Kadang-kadang pencabutan akan digunakan untuk memperbaiki kesalahan dalam penyerahan atau publikasi. Pencabutan artikel oleh penulis atau editornya di bawah nasihat anggota komunitas ilmiah telah lama menjadi fitur sesekali di dunia terpelajar. Standar untuk menangani pencabutan telah dikembangkan oleh sejumlah badan ilmiah, dan praktik terbaik ini diadopsi untuk pencabutan artikel oleh IJAI:

Dalam versi cetak, catatan pencabutan berjudul "Retracted: [judul artikel]" yang ditandatangani oleh penulis dan / atau editor diterbitkan di bagian halaman dari terbitan jurnal berikutnya dan tercantum dalam daftar konten.

Dalam versi elektronik, tautan dibuat ke artikel asli.
Artikel online diawali dengan layar yang berisi catatan pencabutan. Ke layar inilah link tersebut memutuskan; pembaca kemudian dapat melanjutkan ke artikel itu sendiri.
Artikel asli dipertahankan tanpa perubahan kecuali watermark pada .pdf yang menunjukkan di setiap halaman bahwa artikel tersebut "dicabut".

Versi HTML dari dokumen tersebut dihapus.
Penghapusan artikel: batasan hukum dalam jumlah kasus yang sangat terbatas, mungkin perlu untuk menghapus artikel dari database online. Hal ini hanya akan terjadi jika artikel secara jelas memfitnah, atau melanggar hak hukum orang lain, atau di mana artikel tersebut, atau kami memiliki alasan kuat untuk mengharapkannya, menjadi subjek perintah pengadilan, atau di mana artikel tersebut, jika ditindaklanjuti, dapat menimbulkan risiko kesehatan yang serius. Dalam keadaan ini, sementara metadata (Judul dan Penulis) akan dipertahankan, teks akan diganti dengan layar yang menunjukkan artikel telah dihapus karena alasan hukum.

Penggantian artikel
Jika artikel tersebut ingin ditindaklanjuti, dapat menimbulkan risiko kesehatan yang serius, penulis artikel asli mungkin ingin mencabut dokumen asli yang cacat dan menggantinya dengan versi yang telah diperbaiki. Dalam keadaan ini, prosedur pencabutan akan diikuti dengan tahap yang berbeda bahwa pemberitahuan pencabutan database akan menerbitkan tautan ke artikel yang diterbitkan ulang yang dikoreksi dan riwayat dokumen.

Kebijakan ini mengikuti pedoman dari COPE
