Publication Ethics

Publication ethics for the Author(s)

  • The author is the person who has contributed significantly to the writing of the submitted article. Others who have made significant contributions should also be included as co-authors. All registered authors must ensure that they have viewed and approved the final manuscript, which will submit to Jurnal Misioner.

  • Authors must ensure that the submitted work is original and free from plagiarism. All works of other authors used must cite base on standard citation formats.

  • Authors should not submit the same manuscript to more than one journal or publication concurrently. 

Publication ethics for the Editors

  • The editor is responsible for deciding which articles are eligible for publication. Such decisions should be made based on editorial board policy, journal focus and scope, peer review results, and limited legal requirements related to defamation, copyright infringement, and plagiarism.

  • The editor must ensure that the assessment of submissions is carried out objectively without discrimination against gender, ethnicity, nationality, etc.

  • Editors must ensure that the peer-review process is anonymous, fair, and objectively using a double-blind review system. Editors must select reviewers who have appropriate and sufficient expertise in the relevant field and are free from conflicts of interest.

  • Editors must ensure the confidentiality of all information related to submitted manuscripts, including authors' and reviewers' identities. Editors will not use rejected manuscripts (in whole or part) for their benefit without the authors' written consent. Members of the Editor's Team may not be involved in making decisions on texts that have a conflict of interest with them.

Publication ethics for the Reviewers

  • The reviewer must keep any information about the manuscripts assessed confidentially. Reviewers are not allowed to discuss or share reviews with others without permission from the Editor.

  • The reviews should carry out an assessment objectively with clear arguments and constructive feedback to the author. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate.

  • Reviewers only agree to review if they are sure they can do the review on time. If the assigned reviewer knows that it is impossible to meet the specified deadline, they should notify the Editor.

  • The reviewer must identify the work of other authors that the author has not correctly cited or cited. Reviewers should be aware of the potential for plagiarism and other ethical issues related to the text under review. If a reviewer finds such a problem, they must immediately notify the Editor.
