FAIR PLAY & WITHDRAWAL

Fair Play

The editor evaluates the manuscripts for their intellectual content only without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.

Withdrawal of Manuscripts

The author is not permitted to withdraw the submitted manuscript because withdrawal is a waste of valuable resources that the editor has spent in processing the manuscript. If the author still requests for withdrawal of the manuscript when the manuscript is still under the peer-reviewing process, the author must pay IDR1.500.000,00 ($107) per manuscript, as a withdrawal penalty, to the publisher. If the withdrawal of the manuscript is requested after the manuscript has been accepted for publication and is under the copyediting or production process, the author will be required to pay IDR2.500.000,00 ($179) per manuscript. Withdrawal of the manuscript is only allowed after the author has paid the penalty to the publisher. Authors are also expected not to send the same article to other journals for publication as this constitutes a violation of academic ethics.
