Peer Review Process

All research articles and technical reports submitted for publication are rigorously refereed by independent peer reviewers using double-blind review (authors are not identified to reviewers, nor are reviewers identified to authors), ensuring that the journal publishes original work that is of international stature. The review team comprises local and international scholars of high repute. The journal appears approximately twice per year.

Authors are invited to nominate potential reviewers (ideally at least some from outside Indonesian), who may or may not be used, but give the editorial team an indication of the kind of reviewer to approach. Authors should also inform the editorial team if any specific reviewers should not be approached, and why. Please use this form to list two potential reviewers and sending by email jichi.informatika@unimus.ac.id.

Policy of Screening for Plagiarism

Papers submitted to JICHI will be screened for plagiarism using Google scholar plagiarism checker and CrossCheck/iThenticate plagiarism detection tools. JICHI will immediately reject papers leading to plagiarism or self-plagiarism.

Before submitting articles to reviewers, those are first checked for similarity/plagiarism tool, by a member of the editorial team. The papers submitted to JICHI must have a similarity level of less than 15%.

Plagiarism is the exposing of another person’s thoughts or words as though they were your own, without permission, credit, or acknowledgment, or because of failing to cite the sources properly. Plagiarism can take diverse forms, from literal copying to paraphrasing the work of another. In order to properly judge whether an author has plagiarized, we emphasize the following possible situations:

  • An author can literally copy another author’s work- by copying word by word, in whole or in part, without permission, acknowledge or citing the original source. This practice can be identified by comparing the original source and the manuscript/work who is suspected of plagiarism.
  • Substantial copying implies for an author to reproduce a substantial part of another author, without permission, acknowledge or citation. The substantial term can be understood both in terms of quality as quantity, is often used in the context of Intellectual property. Quality refers to the relative value of the copied text in proportion to the work as a whole.
  • Paraphrasing involves taking ideas, words or phrases from a source and crafting them into new sentences within the writing. This practice becomes unethical when the author does not properly cite or does not acknowledge the original work/author. This form of plagiarism is the more difficult form to be identified.

 

Article Processing Charge

This journal charges the following author fees.

Article Submission: 0.00 (USD)
Article Publication Fee: 0.00 (USD)

Readers can read and download any full-text articles free of charge.

 

References management

Withdrawal of Manuscripts

Author is not allowed to withdraw submitted manuscripts, because the withdrawal is a waste of valuable resources that editors and referees spent a great deal of time processing submitted manuscript, and works invested by the publisher.

If author still requests withdrawal of his/her manuscript when the manuscript is still in the peer-reviewing process, author will be punished with paying $200 per manuscript, as withdrawal penalty to the publisher. However, it is unethical to withdraw a submitted manuscript from one journal if accepted by another journal.

The withdrawal of manuscript after the manuscript is accepted for publication, author will be punished by paying US$400 per manuscript. Withdrawal of manuscript is only allowed after withdrawal penalty has been fully paid to the Publisher. If author don't agree to pay the penalty, the author and his/her affiliation will be blacklisted for publication in this journal. Even, his/her previously published articles will be removed from our online system.
