Publication Ethics

All parties involved in the publishing/publication process of the Jurnal Psikologi (i.e., Managers, Editors, Reviewers, Authors) must understand and adhere to the norms/ethics of scientific publication. Scientific publication must uphold the three ethical values: (1) Neutrality, free from conflict of interest in the management of publications; (2) Justice, giving the right of authorship to those entitled as authors; and (3) Honesty, free of duplication, fabrication, falsification, and plagiarism (DF2P) in the publication.

Authors should refrain from misrepresenting research results which could damage readers' trust to the journal, the professionalism of scientific authorship, and ultimately the entire scientific endeavor.  Research integrity should be achieved by following the rules of good scientific practice, which include:

  • The manuscript has not been published previously (partly or in full) unless it is an expansion of previous work (please provide transparency on the re-use of material to avoid ‘self-plagiarism’.
  • No data have been fabricated or manipulated (including images) to support your conclusions.
  • No data, text, or theories by others are presented as if they were the author’s own (‘plagiarism’). Proper acknowledgments to other’s work must be given (this includes material that is closely copied (near verbatim), summarized and/or paraphrased), quotation marks are used for verbatim copying of material, and permissions are secured for material that is copyrighted. 
  • Consent to submit has been received explicitly from all co-authors and responsible authorities.
  • Authors whose names appear on the submission have contributed sufficiently to the scientific work and therefore share collective responsibility and accountability for the results.
