The publication of an article in the Madani Journal reviewed by colleagues, which has the same field, is an important building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. This is a direct reflection of the quality of work of the Author and the institutions that support them. The articles reviewed will support and realize the scientific method. Therefore, it is important to approve ethical standards that are expected for all parties involved in publishing actions: Author, journal editor, peer reviewer, publisher and society.
The Institute for Democracy and Community Empowerment Studies (LKD-PM) takes on guardianship duties on all serious stages of publishing and we recognize our ethics and other responsibilities. We are committed to ensuring that advertising, reprints, or other commercial revenues do not have an impact or influence on editorial decisions.
The Mandiri Journal Editor is responsible for deciding which articles are submitted to journals that must be published. The validation of the work in question and its importance for researchers and readers must always encourage such decisions. The editors can be guided by the policies of the journal editorial board and are limited by legal requirements such as those currently in force related to defamation, copyright infringement and plagiarism. Editors can negotiate with editors or other reviewers in making this decision.
There is no discrimination
The editor at any time evaluates the manuscript for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic origin, citizenship, or author's political philosophy.
Any editor and editorial staff may not disclose any information about the manuscript sent to anyone other than the relevant Author, reviewer, potential reviewer, other editorial advisors, and the publisher, as appropriate.
Disclosure and conflict of interest
Unpublished material disclosed in the submitted manuscript may not be used in the editor's own research without the written consent of Author.
Contributions to Editorial Decisions
Peer reviews help editors in making editorial decisions and through editorial communication with the Author can also help Author improve papers.
Each selected reviewer who feels ineligible to review the research reported in the manuscript or knows that a quick review is not possible, must notify the editor and withdraw from the review process.
The manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They may not be shown or discussed with others except as permitted by the editor.
Standard of Objectivity
The review must be done objectively. Personal criticism from the Author is incorrect. Reviewers must express their views clearly with supporting arguments.
Reviewers must identify relevant published works that have not been quoted by the Author. Each statement that observations, derivations, or previously reported arguments must be accompanied by relevant citations. The reviewer must also draw the attention of the editor if there is a substantial or overlapping similarity between the text being considered and other published papers that have personal knowledge.
Disclosure and Conflict of Interest
Special information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal gain. Reviewers may not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competition, collaboration, or other relationships or relationships with one of the Author, company or institution connected to the paper.
Author of the original research report must present an accurate report of the work performed and objective discussion of its significance. The underlying data must be accurately represented in the paper. A paper must contain sufficient details and references to enable others to replicate the work. Statements that are fraudulent or intentionally inaccurate are unethical and unacceptable behavior.
Originality and Plagiarism
Author must ensure that they have written a completely original work, and if the Author has used the work and / or words of others that have been quoted or quoted correctly.
Double, Excessive, or Simultaneous Publication
An Author should not generally publish texts that explain basically the same research in more than one journal or main publication. Sending the same manuscript to more than one journal simultaneously is an unethical and unacceptable publishing behavior.
