Journal of Indonesian Economy and Business

Aims and Scope

Given its mission of being “a leading journal in the world on the Indonesian Economy and Business,” the Journal of Indonesian Economy and Business (JIEB) is a double blind peer-reviewed international scientific journal with an international Editorial Board. The Journal has been published since 1986, and is issued thrice a year in January, May and September. Its inception was sponsored by Universitas Gadjah Mada Faculty of Economics and Business (UGM FEB), the only Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB)-accredited business school in Indonesia as of today.

The JIEB purports to be a medium for research results dissemination and scientific paper exchanges on the Indonesian economy and business among international academics, practitioners, regulators, and public. The JIEB is not preferentially disposed toward either empirical work or pure theory, nor toward one particular method or approach. The Journal is particularly interested in papers relevant to the whole economic and business issues, comprised of three salient disciplines: (1) economics, (2) business administration, and (3) accounting. These fields are furthermore divided into the following specific areas:

Economics: Public Economics, International Economics, Development Economics, Monetary Economics, Financial Economics, Game Theory.

Business Administration: Finance, Marketing, Human Resource Management, Strategic Management, Operations, Entrepreneurship, and Ethics.

Accounting: Public Sector Accounting, Taxation, Financial Accounting, Management Accounting, Auditing, and Information Systems.

The aforementioned areas are just indicative, and the Board of Editors is in principle welcoming rigorous articles that encompass scientific economics and business fields on Indonesia.

The JIEB is one of the best, if not the best, scientific journals on economics and business in Indonesia as evidenced by an accreditation given by the Directorate General for Research Strengthening and Development, Ministry of Research and Technology for Higher Education, Republic of Indonesia (SK No. 36a/E/KPT/2016).

The JIEB has been indexed in EBSCO, EconLit, ProQuest, Google Scholar and DOAJ. It is currently putting effort to get indexed by Scopus (ongoing process) and Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) in the near future. In essence, the Journal is committed to maintaining quality and leveraging accessibility toward online worldwide indexes

The Journal of IndonesiaN Economy and Business is published by the Publication Unit of the Faculty of Economics and Business, Universitas Gadjah Mada. It is published three times a year (January, May and September), Number 1, 2 and 3. Each issue comprises of six articles and a book review. 

 

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

 

Publishing and Ethical Guidelines

The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal reflects the work quality of its author(s) with his/her or their pertaining institution(s). Therefore, it is important for a peer-reviewed journal to have an ethical standard for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author(s), the journal editors, the peer reviewers, and the publisher. Journal of Indonesian Economy and Business (JIEB) is committed to ensuring that advertising, reprint, and/or other commercial revenues have no impact nor influence editorial decisions. In addition, the JIEB will assist in communications with other journals and/or publishers should this be necessary to the editors.

 

Duties of the Editors

The JIEB’s editors are responsible for deciding as to which of the articles submitted should be reviewed and published. The validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers must always drive such a decision. The editor-in-chief must seriously prevent libel, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. An editor should evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual contents without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the author(s).

Editors and any editorial staff must not disclose any information on a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author(s), reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisors, and the publisher, as appropriate. Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in an editor's own research without a written consent of the author(s). Privileged information or ideas obtained through a peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantages.

Editors should recuse themselves from considering manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest. Editors should require all contributors to disclose relevant competing interests and publish corrections if competing interests are revealed after publication. An editor should take reasonably responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper, in conjunction with the publisher (or society). Every reported act of unethical publishing behavior must be looked into, even if it is discovered years after publication.

 

Duties of the Reviewers

A peer review assists the editor-in-chief in making an editorial decision and editorial communications with the author(s). Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review research reported in a manuscript, or knows that its prompt review will be impossible, should notify the editor-in-chief and excuse himself/herself from the review process. Any manuscript received for review must be treated as a confidential document.

Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author(s) is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by relevant citations. 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 he/she has personal knowledge. Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in a reviewer’s own research without an expressed written consent of the author(s). Privileged information or ideas obtained through a peer review must be kept confidential and not utilized for personal advantages. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest.

 

Duties of the Authors

Authors of a report of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as objective discussion on its significance. Data and citations should be represented accurately in the paper. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable. Plagiarism takes many forms, from using another’s paper as the author’s own paper to copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of another’s paper (without attribution), or claiming results from research conducted by others. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is intolerable.

An author should not in general publish a manuscript 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. Information obtained privately, as in conversation, correspondence, or discussion with third parties, must not be used or reported without explicit, written permission from the source(s). Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study, and seen and approved the final version of the paper and agreed to its submission for publication.

All authors should disclose in their manuscripts any financial or other substantive conflicts of interest. 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 JIEB’s editor-in-chief and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.

Plagiarism

According to Regulation No. 7/2010 of the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Indonesia, “Plagiarism is the intentional and unintentional practice of obtaining or trying to obtain credit or value from a scientific work without stating the source appropriately and adequately.” Another definition from the Oxford American Dictionary in Clabaugh (2001), is that “Plagiarism is to take and use another person’s ideas or writing or inventions as one’s own.” The Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary explains the word "plagiarize" as “stealing and passing off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own, using (another's production) without crediting the source, committing literary theft, presenting as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source.” Plagiarism manifests itself in a variety of forms, including (adopted from ACM with some modification):

  • Verbatim copying, near-verbatim copying, or purposely paraphrasing portions of another author's paper;

  • Copying elements of another author's paper, such as equations or illustrations that are not common knowledge, or copying or purposely paraphrasing sentences without citing the source;

  • Verbatim copying of portions of another author's paper, while citing but not clearly differentiating what text has been copied (e.g., not applying quotation marks correctly) and/or not citing the source correctly.

Self-plagiarism is a related issue. Self-plagiarism is defined as “The verbatim or near-verbatim reuse of significant portions of one's own copyrighted work without citing the original source.” Self-plagiarism does not apply to publications based on the author's own previously copyrighted work (e.g., appearing in a conference proceedings) where an explicit reference is made to the prior publication. Such reuse does not require quotation marks to delineate the reused text but does require that the source be cited.

All authors are deemed to be individually and collectively responsible for the content of papers published by JIEB. Therefore, it is the responsibility of each author to ensure that papers submitted to JIEB attain the highest ethical standards with respect to plagiarism.

Plagiarism Sanctions (Adopted from ACM with Modification)

When plagiarism has been found to have occurred, JIEB will take the actions listed below as determined by the type of plagiarism. Unless determined otherwise during the investigation, all authors are deemed to be individually and collectively responsible for the content of a plagiarizing paper.

  1. Verbatim copying, near-verbatim copying, or purposely paraphrasing a significant portion of another author's paper without citing the source and without clearly delineating (e.g., in quotation marks) the source material.

  • JIEB will inform the Department Chair, Dean, or supervisor of the authors of the finding of plagiarism.

  • The authors will be asked to write a formal letter of apology to the authors of the plagiarized paper, including an admission of plagiarism.

  • If the paper has appeared in print, JIEB will post a Notice of Plagiarism based on the investigation, on the JIEB Digital Library's citation page of the plagiarizing paper and will remove access to the full text. The paper itself will be kept in the database for future research or legal purposes.

  • If the paper is under submission, the paper can be automatically rejected by the Editor-in-Chief or the Program Chair without further revisions. In addition, a letter of warning will be sent by the Editor-in-Chief or the Program Chair to the authors with a copy of the JIEB’s Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism.

In addition, a letter of warning will be sent by the Editor-in-Chief or the Program Chair to the authors with a copy of the JIEB Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism.

  1. Self-plagiarism or redundant, duplicative publication (verbatim or near-verbatim reuse of significant portions of one's own copyrighted work in subsequent papers, where the authors have not disclosed in the subsequent paper the previous publication).

  • If the paper has appeared in print, JIEB will post a Notice of Self Plagiarism or a Notice of Redundant Publication based on the investigation on the JIEB Digital Library's citation page of the self plagiarizing paper.

Review Guidelines

Review Process of Manuscript: Initial Review

  1. Read the abstract to be sure that you have the expertise to review the article. Don’t be afraid to say no to reviewing an article if there is the good reason.
  2. Read information provided by the journal for reviewers so you will know: a) The type of manuscript (e.g., a review article, technical note, original research) and the journal’s expectations/parameters for that type of manuscript.; b) Other journal requirements that the manuscript must meet (e.g., length, citation style).
  3. Know the journal’s scope and mission to make sure that the topic of the paper fits in the scope.
  4. Ready? Read through entire manuscript initially to see if the paper is worth publishing- only make a few notes about major problems if such exist: a) Is the question of interest sound and significant?; b) Was the design and/or method used adequately or fatally flawed? (for original research papers); c) Were the results substantial enough to consider publishable (or were only two or so variables presented or resulted so flawed as to render the paper unpublishable)?
  5. What is your initial impression? If the paper is: a) Acceptable with only minor comments/questions: solid, interesting, and new; sound methodology used; results were well presented; discussion well formulated with Interpretations based on sound science reasoning, etc., with only minor comments/questions, move directly to writing up review; b) Fatally flawed so you will have to reject it: move directly to writing up review; c) A mixture somewhere in the range of “revise and resubmit” to “accepted with major changes” or you’re unsure if it should be rejected yet or not: It may be a worthy paper, but there are major concerns that would need to be addressed.

 Full Review Process of Manuscript

  1. Writing: Is the manuscript easy to follow, that is, has a logical progression and evident organisation?
  2. Is the manuscript concise and understandable? Any parts that should be reduced,
  3. Eliminated/expanded/added?
  4. Note if there are major problems with mechanics: grammar, punctuation, spelling. (If there are just a few places that aren’t worded well or correctly, make a note to tell the author the specific places. If there are consistent problems throughout, only select an example or two if need be- don’t try and edit the whole thing).
  5. Abbreviations: Used judiciously and are composed such that reader won’t have trouble remembering what an abbreviation represents.
