Publication Ethics

Publication Ethic

Jurnal FarmasiKoe adheres to the publication ethics set forth by COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics). Originality of the submitted article is essential, as well as it never having been published or considered for publication elsewhere. Moreover, the author should ensure that the article is free of plagiarism. Authors should also confirm that their research is free of conflicts of interest.


Duties of editors

1. Publication decision

The editor-in-chief is responsible for deciding whether an article should be published. It may be expected that the Editor-in-Chief will comply with instructions based on journal ethics and adhere to requirements regarding libel, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. To assist editors or reviewers in making decisions, the editor-in-chief can offer policies.

2. Review of manuscript

An editor-in-chief ensures that submitted articles are evaluated by the editor for originality, and then subjected to peer review by two referees using a blind peer review process. Referees give recommendations on whether an article should be published or rejected. This process takes at least 1 month to complete. Articles of high quality will take time to process quickly.

3. Disclosure and conflict of interest

Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used by anyone who has a view of the manuscript in his or her own research without the express written consent of the author.  

4. Fair play

Submitted articles should be evaluated based solely on their intellectual content, without regard to their authors' race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy. 

5. Confidentiality

The Editor in Chief/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.


Duties of Reviewer

1. Promptness

Each reviewer who believes they are not likely to complete the review process within the assigned time has to notify the editor that they will be replaced by another reviewer.

2. Confidentiality

By submitting the article, the author requests that it remain confidential. They have not been shown or discussed with anyone without the permission of the editor.

3. Standard of objectivity

Reviews should be conducted objectively. There shall be no personal criticism of the author. Reviewers should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.  

4. Acknowledgement of source

Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that had been previously reported elsewhere should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also call to the Editor in Chief's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.  

5. Conflict of interest

Reviewers should not review manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.


Duties of authors

1. Reporting standards 

Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable.  

2. Data Access and Retention 

Authors may be asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such, if practicable, and should in any event be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication.     

3. Originality and Plagiarism 

Authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others this must be appropriately cited or quoted.

4. Multiple Publications

An author should not, in general, publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.  

5. Acknowledgment of Sources

Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work. 

6. 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 study. 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.

7. 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.

8. 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.
