To maintain the quality of the manuscript and avoid publishing violations/plagiarism in the publishing process, the editorial board determines the ethics of scientific publications. These rules of publication ethics apply to writers/authors, editors, reviewers/reviewers, and journal/editorial managers. This statement is based on COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.
Journal of Management Ethics
Decision-making; Editors must describe the mission and goals of the organization, especially those related to policy setting and publishing decisions without any particular interest.
Freedom; Journal administrators must give reviewers and editors the freedom to create a comfortable working atmosphere and respect author privacy.
Guarantees and promotions; journal managers must guarantee and protect intellectual property rights (copyright). In addition, journal managers must publish and promote publications to the public by ensuring the benefits of using the manuscript.
Disclosure of conflicts of interest; Journal managers must understand the ethics of scientific publications above to avoid conflicts of interest with other parties so that the manuscript publishing process runs smoothly and safely.
Report; The author must provide information about the process and results of his research to the editor honestly, clearly, and thoroughly and store his research data safely and adequately.
Originality and plagiarism; the author must ensure that the manuscript that has been sent/submitted to the editor is the original manuscript, written by himself, originating from his ideas and ideals, and not plagiarizing the written work or thoughts/opinions of others. Authors are strictly prohibited from changing the names of reference sources citing other people's names.
Repeat delivery; the author must say that the manuscript sent/submitted to the editor is a manuscript that has not been sent/submitted to another journal/publication publisher. If a "redundancy" is found in sending the manuscript to another publisher, the editor will reject the manuscript submitted by the author.
Author status; the author must have the competence to the editor that the author has or qualifications in a particular field of expertise by published science, namely librarianship. The author who sends the manuscript to the editor is the first author (co-author) so that if a problem is found in the process of publishing the manuscript, it can be resolved immediately.
Scriptwriting errors; the author must immediately notify the editor if errors are found in the writing of the manuscript, both the results of the review and the edits. The explanation includes a report of names, availability/agencies, quotes, and other writings that can reduce the meaning and substance of the manuscript. If that happens, the author must immediately correct the manuscript.
Disclosure of conflicts of interest; the author must understand the ethics of scientific publications above to avoid conflicts of interest with other parties to manage the manuscript smoothly and safely.
Publication decisions; editors, must ensure that the manuscript review process is thorough, transparent, objective, fair and discreet. This becomes the basis for the editor in deciding on a manuscript, whether it is rejected or accepted. In this case, the editorial board acts as the manuscript selection team.
Publication Information; editors must ensure that manuscript writing guidelines for authors and other interested parties can be accessed and read clearly, both in printed and electronic versions.
Peer-reviewed manuscript sharing; editors must ensure reviewers and manuscript material for review and transparent information on the terms and process for reviewing manuscripts to reviewers.
Objectivity and neutrality; editors must be objective, neutral, and honest in their manuscripts, regardless of gender, business, ethnicity, religion, race, inter-group, and national author.
Confidentiality; editors must safeguard any information adequately, especially about the author's privacy and distribution of the manuscript.
Disclosure of conflicts of interest; editors must understand the ethics of scientific publications above to avoid conflicts of interest with other parties so that the process of publishing the manuscript runs smoothly and safely.
Objectivity and neutrality; reviewers, must be honest, objective, unbiased, independent, and only stand for scientific truth. The process of reviewing the manuscript is carried out professionally regardless of gender, the business side, ethnicity, religion, race, intergroup, and nationality of the author.
Clarity of reference sources; the reviewer must ensure that the start of the reference/citation of the manuscript is appropriate and credible (can be clarified). If there are errors or irregularities in the writing of the reference/quotation source, the reviewer must immediately notify the editor to make corrections by the author according to the reviewer's notes.
Peer-review effectiveness; the reviewer must respond to the manuscript that the editor and work have sent according to the specified peer-review time (maximum two weeks). If additional time is needed in reviewing the manuscript, it must immediately report (confirm) it to the editorial secretariat.
Disclosure of conflicts of interest; reviewers must understand the ethics of scientific publications above to avoid conflicts of interest with other parties so that the process of publishing the manuscript runs smoothly and safely.
