Publication Ethics

Bahasa version

The Journal of Regional Economic and Financial Studies (KEUDA) is a blind-review journal that is published periodically three times in one year (April, August, and December). The KEUDA Journal publishes writings in the area of Regional Economic and Financial Studies which have a significant contribution to the development of science, thought, profession and practice of Regional Finance and Economic Studies in Indonesia and the world in general. The publication of articles in blind-review journals is an important part of the development of science. Publication is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of writers and institutions that shelter it. Articles from blind-review support and realize a scientific approach. Therefore, a standard of ethical behavior is needed for all parties involved in publications: journal editors, reviewers, and writers.

For editors:

  • The editor must be responsible for each article published in the Second Journal: Journal of Regional Economic and Financial Studies
  • The editor must help the writer follow the instructions in the OJS process.
  • The editor can communicate with other editors or reviewers in making the final decision.
  • An editor must evaluate the manuscript objectively for publication, assessing each on its quality regardless of nationality, ethnicity, political beliefs, race, religion, gender, seniority, or institutional affiliation of the author. He must refuse his duties when there is a potential conflict of interest.
  • Editors need to ensure the documents sent to reviewers do not contain information from the author, and vice versa.
  • The editors 'decision must be made known to the author accompanied by the reviewers' comments unless they contain offensive or defamatory comments.
  • The editor must respect the request of the author that an individual may not review the post, if this is reasonable and practical.
  • The editor and all staff must ensure the confidentiality of the text submitted.

For reviewers:

  • Reviewers need to comment on ethical questions and possible violations of research and publication.
  • The reviewer will do the work on time and must notify the editor if they cannot complete the work.
  • Reviewers need to maintain the confidentiality of the manuscript.
  • Reviewers may not accept to review texts where there is a potential conflict of interest between them and any writer.
  • The reviewer must be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the writer is incorrect. Reviewers must express their views clearly accompanied by supporting arguments.
  • Reviewers must identify publications that have not been cited by the author. A statement about observations or arguments that have been published before must be accompanied by relevant citations. The reviewer must inform the editor of a substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript being reviewed and other published writings, in accordance with the reviewer's knowledge.
  • Blind peer review by reviewers helps editors make decisions and can help writers improve their writing through editorial communication between reviewers and writers. Peer review is an important component in formal scientific communication (formal scholarly communication) and scientific approaches.

For author:

  • The author confirms that the material has never been published before and that they have not transferred any rights to the article.
  • Authors must ensure the authenticity of the work and they have quoted the work of others correctly in accordance with the reference format.
  • Authors must not be involved in plagiarism or self plagiarism.
  • The author must provide a data editor and job details, if there is a suspicion of data forgery or falsification.
  • Authors must not publish the same manuscript in more than one journal. Submitting the same text to more than one journal is unethical behavior in the publication of scientific papers and is not acceptable.
  • Proper recognition of the work of others must always be done. The author must mention influential publications in the preparation of his work. Information obtained personally, such as in conversations, correspondence, or discussions with third parties, may not be used or reported without written permission from the source of the information.
  • The writer is the person who has contributed significantly to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the writing in the article. All parties who have made significant contributions are listed as co-authors. The author of the correspondence must ensure that all co-authors have been included in the manuscript, and all co-authors have read and agreed to the final version of the work and have approved the submission of the manuscript for publication.
  • When the writer finds a significant error or inaccuracy in his published work, the author is responsible for notifying the journal editor immediately, and in collaboration with the editor to retract or correct the writing. If the editor obtains information from a third party that a publication contains significant errors, the author is responsible for immediately withdrawing or making corrections to the writing or providing evidence to the editor regarding the accuracy of the original writing.
