Publication Ethics

This is strictly to academic ethics for the duplication of article publication. The contributors (authors) must provide a written declaration that the manuscript submitted to the Sasdaya Journal has never been published and is not being considered for publication elsewhere. In addition, we are committed to ensuring that all article senders are genuine. Therefore, our journal editorial is responsible for double-blind peer review to ensure that the submitted text has never been published before it is sent to the Sasdaya Journal.

  • There is a Sasdaya boundary in examining the submitted work. Therefore, we ask external reviewers to report any violations to us via email: sasdayajournal.fib@ugm.ac.id so that immediate action is taken.
  • Sasdaya can revoke publications in Sasdaya, if a work / article is considered fraudulent, or if the Sasdaya editor has reasonable suspicions or errors. In addition, Sasdaya can facilitate replacement, if needed. For each author the original article cannot be changed.
  • Neither peer-reviewer comments or correspondence should contain personal attacks on the author. Editors and peer reviewers should only criticize the work, not the researcher and must edit (or reject) the letter containing a personal or offensive statement.

Authors of articles in Sasdaya Journal must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • The resulting work must balance intellectual contributions to the concept, design, analysis, and writing of the script in relation to research.
  • The author must state that the work reported is theirs and that they are the copyright owner (or have obtained permission from the copyright owner).
  • The author must state that the articles submitted and the basic content have never been published and are not considered for publication elsewhere.
  • The author must avoid disputes about attribution of academic credit. Therefore, it is helpful to decide that you will be credited as the appropriate author, contributor, and who will be recognized. Every article written by more than one person must submit its contribution to the article written.
  • Authors must take public responsibility for their paper / article content. It is unethical to send manuscripts to more than one journal.

  • All errors found in the text after submission must be communicated to the Editor.

  • Authors must submit a brief description of all contributions to their text (according to the guide). The contribution of each author must be explained in the letter. Authors or research papers must be able to find that they have complete access to study data that support publication.
