Publication Ethics

Our editors and employees work hard to ensure the content we publish is ethically sound. To help us achieve that goal, we closely follow the advice laid out in the guidelines and flowcharts on the COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) website.

Justicia Islamica: Jurnal Kajian Hukum dan Sosial has been applied to become COPE's Member on 1 February 2021.

Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement

Justicia Islamica Jurnal Kajian Hukum dan Sosial (Journal of Law and Social Studies) is partnering with a peer-reviewed, journal published twice a year in print and online by the Faculty of Sharia IAIN Ponorogo. This statement explains all parties' ethical behavior in publishing articles in Justicia Islamica: Jurnal Kajian Hukum dan Sosial, including writers, editors council, (bebestari) partners, and publishers. This statement is based on COPE's Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.

Ethical Guidelines Publishing

Publication of an article in the Justicia Islamica is an essential building block in developing a coherent network of knowledge and respect. This is a direct reflection of the quality of work of authors and institutions that support them. The articles were reviewed to help and contain the scientific method. Therefore, it is essential to agree on standards of ethical behavior expected of all parties involved in publishing, namely: writer, editor of the journal, (bebestari) partners, publishers, and society.

Faculty of Sharia IAIN Ponorogo as the publisher responsible for escorting Justicia Islamica all stages of publishing seriously and recognizes the ethical responsibilities and other responsibilities. Institutions are other than committed to ensuring that the print ads and other commercial income have no impact or influence on editorial decisions. They are also committed to assisting communication with journal managers and issuers to another, if deemed useful and necessary.

Allegations of Research Misconduct

Research misconduct means fabrication, falsification, citation manipulation, or plagiarism in producing, performing, reviewing research and writing an article by authors, or reporting research results. When authors are found to have been involved with research misconduct or other serious irregularities involving articles that have been published in scientific journals, Editors have a responsibility to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the scientific record.

In suspected misconduct cases, the Editors and Editorial Board will use the best practices of COPE to assist them in resolving the complaint and addressing the misconduct fairly. This will include an investigation of the allegation by the Editors. A submitted manuscript that is found to contain such misconduct will be rejected. In cases where a published paper has such misconduct, a retraction can be printed and linked to the original article.

The first step involves determining the validity of the allegation and assessing whether the allegation is consistent with the definition of research misconduct. This initial step also involves determining whether the individuals alleging misconduct have relevant conflicts of interest.

Suppose scientific misconduct or the presence of other substantial research irregularities is a possibility. In that case, the allegations are shared with the corresponding author, who is requested to provide a detailed response on behalf of all of the coauthors. After the response is received and evaluated, additional review and involvement of experts (such as statistical reviewers) may be obtained. For cases where it is unlikely that misconduct has occurred, clarifications, further analyses, or both, published as letters to the editor, and often including a correction notice and correction to the published article are sufficient.

Institutions are expected to conduct an appropriate and thorough investigation of allegations of scientific misconduct. Ultimately, authors, journals, and institutions have an essential obligation to ensure the scientific record's accuracy. By responding appropriately to concerns about scientific misconduct, and taking necessary actions based on evaluation of these concerns, such as corrections, retractions with replacement, and retractions, Justicia Islamica will continue to fulfill the responsibilities of ensuring the validity and integrity of the scientific record.
