Publication Ethics

Research published in JNTETI (Jurnal Nasional Teknik Elektro dan Teknologi Informasi) should comply with institutional, national, and international guidelines.

All parties involved in the publication process: authors, journal editors, reviewers, and publishers need to agree on expected ethical standards.

Publication and Authorship

In their papers, all authors must declare any financial and substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence research results or interpretation of their papers. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.

All authors ensure 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.

Authors are not allowed to inappropriately counterfeit and manipulate dates in their papers.

Authors are prohibited in general publish papers describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same paper to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.

The scope of papers published are in accordance with or relevant to the topics of JNTETI which cover the field of (but not limited to):


Information technology: Software Engineering, Data Mining, Multimedia Technologies, Mobile Computing, Parallel/Distributed Computing, Artificial Intelligent, Computer Graphics, Virtual Reality.

Power Systems: Generator, Power Distribution, Electrical Power Conversion, Protection Systems, Electrical Material.

Signal, System and Electronics: Digital Signal Processing Algorithm, Robotic Systems, Image Processing, Biomedical Instrumentation, Micro Electronics

Communication System: Management and Protocol Network, Telecommunication System, Wireless Communications, Optoelectronics, Fuzzy Sensor and Network.

Duties of Authors:

Authors submitting their paper for the JNTETI publication should participate in the review process.

Authorship should be limited to individuals who meet the following three criteria:

  • Those who have made a significant contribution to the conception and project design, or analysis and data interpretation, or any other substantial scientific efforts;
  • Those who have participated in the arrangement, review, and/or revision of works;
  • Those who have approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.


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 behaviour and are unacceptable.

When authors discover a significant error or inaccuracy in their own published work, it is the authors’ obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.

Beside ethical statements of JNTETI, authors should read and agree upon the Editorial policies.

Review Process/Duties of Reviewers:

Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the authors is inappropriate. Reviewers should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should not consider papers 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.

Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also call to the editor’s attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the paper under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.

Any papers received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except as authorized by the editor.

Duties of Editors:

The editors of JNTETI are responsible for deciding which of the papers submitted to the journal should be published. The editors may be guided by the policies of the journal’s editorial board and constrained by such legal requirements as shall then be in force regarding libel, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. The editors may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.

The editors shall only accept papers when reasonably certain. Acceptance criteria for all papers are based on the research quality and originality as well as clinical and scientific significance.

When authors discover significant errors and inaccuracy in their published works, it is their responsibilities to promptly notify the journal editors or publisher and cooperate with the editors to retract the paper or publish an appropriate erratum.

Editors should respect the confidentiality rights of reviewers. Editors must not disclose any information about the paper (including receipt, content, status of review process, comment of reviewer, and final decision) to anyone other than authors and reviewer.

Publication Ethics:

JNTETI does not tolerate plagiarism. Authors must not engage in plagiarism, duplicate, and paraphrase texts or works of others (without proper attribution). Authors must not engage in self-plagiarism (or known as duplicate publication) and unacceptable replication of texts or works of their own, which are previously published, without citing the original sources. To avoid any form of plagiarism, every paper will be checked for similarity to the Crosscheck database using TurnItIn software.

JNTETI shall consider retracting publication under the following circumstances:

  • JNTETI owns significant evidence proven that the findings are unreliable, both as infringement consequences (e.g., data falsification) and honest error (e.g., calculation and experimental error).
  • The previous findings have been published elsewhere without citation, permission, and appropriate justification (excessive publication cases).
  • The papers are the plagiarism results.
  • The research is unethical.

A paper submitted to JNTETI for publication consideration must maintain its originality with technical values as well as the integrity of the academic record. In addition, business needs must be precluded from compromising intellectual and ethical standards.
