Ethical Guideline for Journal Publication
The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed JLKA 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.
Puslitbang Lektur dan Khazanah Keagamaan Badan Litbang dan Diklat Kementerian Agama as publisher of JLKA takes its duties of guardianship over all stages of publishing 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.
In essence, the publication of JLKA adheres to the Regulation of the Head of the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) No. 5 dated 2014 regarding Publication Ethics which is substantially in line with core practices developed by Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) in order to promote integrity in scientific research and its publication. Such core practices also ultimately aim to make ethical practices a defining character of the publishing culture.
In managing its publication, JLKA firmly upholds three fundamental ethical principles: 1) Neutrality, being free from any forms of conflicts of interest, 2) Fairness, providing equal authorship opportunities on the basis of academic merit and competence, and 3) Integrity, being free of duplication, falsification, and plagiarism. This publication ethics applies to all parties involved including authors, editorial board members, reviewers, and the publisher.
The editor of the JLKA 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.
An editor at any time evaluate 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.
