Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement
Jurnal Farmasi Indonesia (JFI) is a peer-reviewed journal. It is necessary to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, and the publisher. This statement is based on Practice Guidelines for publication as in Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE’s Best).
In addition, every full paper submitted to JFI will be screened using Turnitin (an Internet-based plagiarism-prevention service) to detect the possibilities of plagiarism.
- Authors are expected to have made reasonable attempts to check and validate results submitted to the journal for publication.
- Authors should provide real and authentic research data.
- Authors should confirm that the journal is not published in another journal.
- Authors are required to cite the sources correctly by considering the content of the manuscript either in the form of written publications or personal interviews.
Originality and plagiarism
The authors should confirm that they have written entirely original works and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.
Multiple, Redundant, or Concurrent Publication
Authors should not submit or publish the same manuscript to more than one journal or primary publication.
Authorship of the Paper
- Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported research.
- All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors.
- Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors.
Hazards and Human or Animal Subjects
If the work involves chemicals, procedures, or equipment that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify these in the manuscript. If the work involves the use of animal or human subjects, the author should ensure that the manuscript contains a statement that all procedures were performed in compliance with relevant laws and institutional guidelines and that the appropriate institutional committee(s) has approved them. Authors should include a statement in the manuscript that informed consent was obtained for experimentation with human subjects. The privacy rights of human subjects must always be observed.
Data Access and Retention
Authors may be asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should in any event be prepared to keep such data for a reasonable time after publication.
Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest
- All authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflicts of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript.
- All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.
Fundamental errors in published works
- When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author's obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
- If the editor or the publisher learns from a third party that a published work contains a significant error, it is the obligation of the author to promptly retract or correct the paper or provide evidence to the editor of the correctness of the original paper.
An editor assesses manuscripts based only on the originality and the quality of the paper and should not be affected by religious, national, political, or any other influences.
The editors and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate.
Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest
Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in editors' own research without the express written consent of the author.
Contribution to Editorial Decisions
- Peer review assists the editor in making editorial decisions and through the editorial communications with the author may also assist the author to give proper assessment and judgment of the submitted paper.
- Reviewers should immediately inform the editor if any form of plagiarism is identified within the submitted work.
Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editors and excuse himself from the review process.
Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except as authorized by the editor.
Standards of Objectivity
Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. The reviewers should express their views clearly with supporting rationale arguments.
Acknowledgment of Sources
- Reviewers should point out relevant published work which is not cited in the article.
- Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation.
- A reviewer should also call to the editor's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.
Disclosure and Conflict of Interest
- Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage.
