Jurnal Metris' editors, writers, and reviewers accept full responsibility for carrying out the following tasks and responsibilities and are devoted to upholding acceptable publication practices.

Journal publication ethics guidelines.

The process of continuous knowledge enhancement is the publication of a paper in the peer-reviewed journals issued by the Atma Jaya Catholic University of Indonesia. It is an accurate representation of the quality of the writers' output and the organizations that encourage it. The scientific method is supported and reflected in publications with peer review. All parties involved in the process of publishing, including the author, journal editor, peer reviewer, publisher, and society of society-owned or sponsored journals, should thus agree upon criteria of anticipated ethical behavior.

Authors' obligations

Reporting requirements

Report writers of original research should give a factual description of the work completed and an unbiased analysis of its importance. The paper should accurately present the underlying data. A paper should have enough information and citations so that other people may do the same research. It is unethical and unprofessional to make false or intentionally erroneous statements. Editorial "opinion" works should be clearly marked as such, while reviews and professionally published pieces should also be factual and objective.

Access and retention of data

The raw data may be requested from authors when submitting an article for editorial review. In any case, they ought to be ready to hold onto such information for a fair amount of time following publishing.

Plagiarism and originality

The writers must make sure that everything in the work they completed is original, and if they used materials from others, they must have properly cited or quoted them. Plagiarism can take many different forms, such as 'passing off' another author's work as one's own, copying or paraphrasing significant portions of another author's work without giving credit, or making claims about the findings of other people's studies. Any sort of plagiarism is not desired and should be avoided as unethical publication conduct.

Multiple, redundant, or ongoing publications

In general, an author shouldn't write articles that effectively describe the same research in many journals or main publications. It is immoral and improper to submit the same paper simultaneously to many journals as this is considered an unethical publishing practice. ideally, an author should never submit a work that has already been published to be considered in another journal.

Acknowledgement of sources

Others' contributions must always be properly acknowledged. Publications that have influenced the understanding of the reported work's nature should be cited by authors. Similar to discussions, letters, and conversations with third parties, information that is collected in private cannot be utilized or reported without the source's express written consent.

Authorship of the paper

People who have significantly influenced the idea, planning, execution, or interpretation of the published study should be able to claim authorship. As co-authors, everyone who has contributed significantly ought to be mentioned. Others who have contributed to the study activity in any significant way should be recognized or noted as contributors. The corresponding author is responsible for making sure that each co-author has reviewed, authorized, and consented to the paper's submission for publication.

Risks and topics concerning humans or animals

The author of the article must make it apparent whether the work includes the use of hazardous chemicals, processes, or equipment. If the research uses human or animal subjects, the author must make sure that the publication states that all procedures were carried out by institutional norms and applicable regulations and that the relevant institutional committee or committees have authorized them. The manuscript should state that informed consent was obtained before using human subjects for experimentation. Human subjects' right to privacy must always be respected.

Conflicts of interest and disclosure

Any financial or other significant conflicts of interest that could be interpreted to have an impact on the manuscript's interpretation or outcomes should be declared by all authors. Disclosure of all funding sources for the project is required. Employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, paid expert testimony, patent applications/registrations, grants or other funding are a few examples of potential conflicts of interest that need to be declared. As soon as feasible, such conflicts of interest should be declared.

Typical mistakes in works that were published

It is the responsibility of the author to promptly tell the journal editor or publisher of any serious error or inaccuracy found in their own published work, and to work with the editor to retract or fix the manuscript. It is the author's responsibility to either immediately retract or revise the published work or give proof to the editor that the original work proved correct if the editor or publisher finds out through a third party that a published work contains a serious error.

Reviewers' obligations

Participation in Editorial Decisions

The editor conducts peer reviews to inform editorial decisions, and editorial correspondence with authors can help authors improve their work.


If a referee is chosen and feels unfit to examine the research presented in a manuscript or knows that reviewing it quickly won't be feasible, they should inform the editor and withdraw from the review process.

Keep Information Private

Manuscripts submitted for review are intended to be handled as private correspondence. They may only be seen or discussed with others with the editor's permission.

Objectivity Standards


Reviews ought to be carried out impartially. It is forbidden to criticize the author personally. Referees should clearly state their opinions and provide evidence to back them up.

Recognition of Sources

Reviewers must locate relevant published work that hasn't been cited by the authors. Any claim that an observation, deduction, or argument has been previously published should be supported by the pertinent citation. Any significant similarity or overlap between the manuscript being considered and any other published material about which the reviewer is personally aware should also be brought to the editor's attention.

Conflict of Interest and Disclosure

Ideas or privileged information that have undergone peer review must be kept private and not exploited for personal advantage. Manuscripts containing conflicts of interest arising from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or affiliations with any authors, companies, or institutions associated with the articles should not be considered to be assessed by reviewers.

Editors' obligations

Publication decisions

Selecting articles for publication in a peer-reviewed journal is the responsibility of the editor, who frequently collaborates with the appropriate society (in the case of publications owned or supported by societies). Such choices must always be based on the validity of the work in question and its significance to readers and scholars. The journal's editorial board regulations and any applicable laws pertaining to plagiarism, libel, and copyright infringement may serve as guidelines for the editor at that time. When making this choice, the editor may consult with other editors, reviewers, or society officers.

Fair play

Editors should consider only the intellectual quality of manuscripts, not the writers' political philosophy, gender, color, sexual orientation, or place of citizenship.

Keep Information Private

Any information on a submitted article may only be shared by the editor and any editorial staff with the associated author, reviewers or potential reviewers, any editorial advisers, and the publisher, as applicable.

Conflicts of interest and disclosure

Without the author's express written authorization, unpublished materials provided in a submitted manuscript cannot be used by an editor for their own research. Ideas or privileged information that have undergone peer review must be kept private and not exploited for one's own gain. Editors should refrain from reviewing manuscripts in which they have a conflict of interest due to competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or (possibly) institutions connected to the papers (i.e., ask a co-editor, associate editor, or other members of the editorial board to review and consider instead). It is recommended that editors mandate that all writers declare any relevant competing interests and publish any necessary revisions.
