PUBLICATION ETHICS

Three parties must pay attention to the ethical policy of publication in ABDIMAYUDA: Indonesian Journal of Community for Health, namely the author, editor, and reviewer.

Ethical Policy for Authors

The author is fully responsible for ensuring that each manuscript submitted to ABDIMAYUDA: Indonesian Journal of Community for Health includes: guaranteed originality, acknowledged assistance from co-authors and editors, required citations, and is completely free of plagiarism. Authors must understand that plagiarism can take many forms, including inappropriate paraphrasing, which can lead to misinterpretation of the original source. In addition, authors must exercise discretion when intentionally publishing information that may harm the persons named in the author's academic work. Such information cannot be published without the explicit written consent of the persons associated with the information.

ABDIMAYUDA: Indonesian Journal of Community for Health uses a very strict code of ethics on how to spread knowledge. The Editors strictly ensure that all published manuscripts meet very high academic standards to protect the integrity of the Journal and the authors. All authors using the literature should ensure that their references provide diverse and balanced information in order to take a neutral position when presenting arguments. Authors who use empirical data must provide sufficient and rich information to help authors develop analyzes and propositions. Authors must also certify that their manuscript is original and cite all references correctly.

Ethical Policy for Editors

The Editor In Chief is responsible for determining which articles should be published or not. Prior to this publication stage, the Editor In Chief must also be responsible for determining which articles submitted to ABDIMAYUDA: Indonesian Journal of Community for Health should be sent to reviewers for further assessment and which other submissions should be rejected because they do not meet the minimum standards for the draft manuscript.

The editor must be responsible for everything that is published in ABDIMAYUDA: Indonesian Journal of Community for Health. To ensure that editors can meet all ethical standards, Editors must operate under a standard double-blind review process to ensure the quality of the manuscript and decide whether a manuscript will be accepted or rejected based solely on its originality, quality and prospects for dissemination of knowledge to readers. Editors are prohibited from implementing discriminatory policies by prioritizing or discouraging certain authors based on religion, belief, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or personal background in any form.

All Editors are responsible for protecting the confidentiality of authors. They may not disclose all unpublished manuscripts to third parties without the explicit consent of the author. Editors should double-check the manuscript before making a decision. Editors can communicate with reviewers and authors to clarify and enrich the substance of the manuscript. This communication shall not prejudice the Editor's authority to accept or reject manuscripts.

Ethical Policy for Reviewers

Reviewers should be aware that they are only mandated to review the substance, not the layout of the manuscript or the spelling of the language. The layout will be finalized by the editor along with any language spelling and grammar errors which a language corrector can assist with. Reviewers cannot disclose the confidentiality of author information. Reviewers are also restricted from disclosing the confidentiality of rejected manuscripts to third parties without the explicit consent of the authors. Reviewers may still explain the review standards and reasons for rejecting or accepting certain submissions anonymously to third parties. Reviewers may decline an offer from ABDIMAYUDA: Indonesian Journal of Community for Health to review the manuscript if they feel there will be a potential conflict of interest between the reviewer and the author. Reviewers may also decline an offer to review a manuscript if they believe that the reviewer's review work will not help the author to enrich the substance of the manuscript.
