Journal Publication Ethical Guidelines. The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is a critical building block in the development of a coherent and respected knowledge network. It reflects the caliber of the authors' work as well as the institutions that support them. The scientific method is supported and embodied by peer-reviewed articles. As a result, it is critical to agree on ethical standards for all parties involved in the publishing process: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher, and the society.

Furthermore, the publisher and Editorial Board will assist in communications with other journals and/or publishers as needed.
Decisions on publication. The Jurnal PIjar MIPA's editor is in charge of deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published. Such decisions must always be driven by the validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers. The editors may be guided by the editorial board's policies and constrained by any legal requirements that are in effect at the time regarding libel, copyright infringement, and plagiarism.
Fair play. The 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.
Confidentiality. 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 edito
Editorial Decisions. Contribution Peer review helps the editor make editorial decisions, and editorial communications with the author can help the author improve the paper.
Promptness. Any selected referee who believes he is unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that timely review will be impossible should notify the editor and withdraw from the review process.
Confidentiality. Manuscripts for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown or discussed with anyone else unless specifically authorized by the editor.
Objectivity standards. Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal attacks on the author are inappropriate. Referees should state their opinions clearly and provide evidence to back them up.
Acknowledgement of Sources. Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any claim that an observation, derivation, or argument has previously been reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also bring to the editor's attention any significant similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper about which they have personal knowledge.
Conflict of Interest and Disclosure. Confidential information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept private and not used for personal gain. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have competing, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions associated with the papers.
Reporting requirements. Authors of original research reports should provide an accurate account of the work done as well as an objective discussion of its significance. The underlying data should be accurately represented in the paper. A paper should include enough detail and references to allow others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements are unethical and must be avoided.
Data Retention and Access. Authors are asked to provide 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 in any case to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication.
Plagiarism and originality. The authors should ensure that their works are entirely original, and that if they have used the work and/or words of others, this has been properly cited or quoted.
Publication of multiple, redundant, or concurrent works. In general, an author should not submit manuscripts describing essentially the same research to more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal at the same time is unethical and unacceptable publishing behavior.
Acknowledgement of Sources. It is always necessary to properly acknowledge the work of others. Authors should cite publications that had an impact on the nature of the reported work.
The paper's authorship. Authorship should be limited to those who made a significant contribution to the study's conception, design, execution, or interpretation. Co-authors should include everyone who made a significant contribution. Others who have contributed to the substantive aspects of the research project should be acknowledged or listed as contributors. The corresponding author should ensure that the paper has all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and agreed to its submission for publication.
Conflicts of Interest and Disclosure. Any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that could be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript should be disclosed by all authors in their manuscript. All sources of funding for the project should be disclosed.
Fundamental errors in published works. When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his or her own published work, it is the author's responsibility to notify the journal editor or publisher as soon as possible and to work with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
