Peer Review Process

All manuscripts received by JURNAL ILMIAH PERIKANAN DAN KELAUTAN (JIPK; English: Scientific Journal of Fisheries and Marine Sciences) will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers via Open Journal System (OJS) based on the originality, contribution to the field of the scientific area, coherence of the analysis, grammar, and style. This journal uses the framework of Double-Blind Peer Preview Process policy, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. The final decision on the acceptability, or otherwise, of manuscripts will be taken by the editor-in-chief based on reviewers' comments presented during an editorial board meeting. Scanning for instances of plagiarism present in manuscripts will be conducted by means of Turnitin software. In each manuscript, peer reviewer will be rated from the substantial and technical aspects. Peer reviewer that collaboration with JIPK is the experts in science of fisheries and marine. They were experienced in the prestigious journal management and publication that was spread around the national and International.

The editor or editorial board considers the feedback provided by the peer reviewers and arrives at a decision. The following are the most common decisions:

  • accept without any changes (acceptance): the journal will publish the paper in its original form
  • accept with minor revisions (acceptance): the journal will publish the paper and asks the author to make small corrections
  • accept after major revisions (conditional acceptance ): the journal will publish the paper provided the authors make the changes suggested by the reviewers and/or editors
  • revise and resubmit (conditional rejection): the journal is willing to reconsider the paper in another round of decision making after the authors make major changes
  • reject the paper (outright rejection): the journal will not publish the paper or reconsider it even if the authors make major revisions

The reviewer’s decision will be considered by the Board of Editors to determine the ensuing process of the manuscript.

  • Revision Stage. Once the manuscript has been received with notations of minor or major revisions, it will be returned to the author with a review summary form. For manuscripts accepted with major revisions, authors are allotted 3-6 weeks to revise. Whereas for manuscripts accepted with minor revisions, 1 week is allotted for revision. When returning the revised manuscript, the author is required to fill in and attach the cover letter and author's declaration.  

  • Final decision. At this stage, the manuscript will be re-evaluated by the Board of Editors to ensure that the author has revised in response to the reviewers’ concerns. In this final decision, the manuscript may still be rejected if the author did not seriously conduct the revisions necessary.

  • Proofread. Once the manuscript has been deemed acceptable by the Board of Editors, it will undergo a proofreading process to maintain linguistic quality.

  • Publication confirmation. At this stage, the final layout of the manuscript will be resent to the author to ensure that the content is in accordance with the author’s writing. At this stage, the author may revise any typographical error found in the final manuscript. Once confirmation from the author is given, the Editor will process the manuscript for online publication on the website as well as print publication. The author(s) will receive the final version of the manuscript as a PDF file. PROOF of all manuscripts will be provided to the corresponding author. The PROOF should be read carefully, checked against the typed manuscript, and the corrections may be returned within 7 days. 
  • Rejection confirmation. If manuscript is rejected, the author will be notified by Chief Editor with a statement of reasons for rejection. The author may appeal to Chief Editor if he or she believes an unfair judgement has been made which encloses the author’s reasons. Chief Editor will review and discuss the reasons with Section Editors responsible for the manuscript, and later decide whether to accept or deny the appeal.

Plagiarism Screening

Plagiarism is the act of when one author uses another work/author (copying someone’s prior ideas, processes, results or words) without permission, credit, or acknowledgment. The JIPK is strictly against any unethical act of copying or plagiarism in any form. Authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works. JIPK, Jurnal Ilmiah Perikanan dan Kelautan considers plagiarism as a serious offense and will blacklist authors who knowingly cite or use material from other published works without proper acknowledgment. Authors are recommended to use plagiarism checking program to check the similarity from prior publication before undergoing the review processes or before published. Every manuscript that is also submitted to this journal will be screened for plagiarism using Turnitin Program  before submission or published by JIPK Editor

The following types of plagiarism are considered by JIPK:
1. Full Plagiarism: Previously published content without any changes to the text, idea and grammar is considered as full plagiarism. It involves presenting exact text from a source as one’s own.
2. Partial Plagiarism: If content is a mixture from multiple different sources, where the author has extensively rephrased text, then it is known as partial plagiarism.
3. Self-Plagiarism: When an author reuses complete or portions of their pre-published research, then it is known as self-plagiarism. Complete self-plagiarism is a case when an author republishes their own previously published work in a new journal.

If plagiarism is detected by the editorial board member, reviewer, editor etc., in any stage of article process- before or after acceptance, during editing or at a page proof stage. We will alert the same to the author(s) and will ask them to rewrite the content or to cite the references from where the content has been taken. If more than 30% of the paper is plagiarized- the article may be rejected and the same is notified to the author.

If plagiarism is detected after publication, the Journals will conduct an investigation. If plagiarism is found, the competent authority of the JIPK Journal will contact the author's institute and funding agencies. The paper containing the plagiarism will be marked on each page of the PDF. Depending on the extent of the plagiarism, the paper may also be formally retracted.

Article Correction Notice

Honest errors are a part of science and publishing and require publication of a correction when they are detected. We expect authors to inform the journal’s JIPK Editor (details on the Contact Us section of the journal website of JIPK) of any errors of fact they have noticed (or have been informed of) in their article once published. Corrections are made at the journal’s discretion. The correction procedure depends on the publication stage of the article, but in all circumstances a correction notice is published as soon as possible:

Journal Editors of JIPK should consider issuing a correction if:

  • A small part of an otherwise reliable publication reports flawed data or proves to be misleading, especially if this is the result of honest error.
  • The Author or Contributor list is incorrect (e.g. a deserving Author has been omitted or someone who does not meet authorship criteria has been included).

Corrections to peer-reviewed content fall into one of four categories:

  • Publisher correction (a.k.a. ‘erratum’): to notify readers of an important error made by publishing/journal staff (usually a production error) that has a negative impact on the publication record or the scientific integrity of the article, or on the reputation of the Authors or the journal.
  • Author correction (a.k.a. ‘corrigendum’): to notify readers of an important error made by the Authors which has a negative impact on the publication record or the scientific integrity of the article, or on the reputation of the Authors or the journal.
  • Addendum: an addition to the article by its Authors to explain inconsistencies, to expand the existing work, or otherwise explain or update the information in the main work.


Article Withdrawal

Author is not allowed to withdraw submitted manuscripts, because the withdrawal is waste of valuable resources that editors and referees spent a great deal of time processing submitted manuscript, money 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 $75 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$100 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.


Article retraction

Universitas Airlangga (UNAIR) is known with the symbol "Excellent with Morality where it takes its responsibility to maintain the integrity and completeness of the scholarly record of our content for all end users very seriously. Changes to articles after they have been published online may only be made under the circumstances outlined below. UNAIR places great importance on the authority of articles after they have been published and our policy is based on best practice in the academic publishing community. 

A retraction is a means to notify the community of unsound results or misconduct, following an investigation of the issue in question by JIPK and the editors of the journal. The purpose of retractions is to correct the literature and ensure its integrity rather than to punish individuals.

Retraction may be considered:

  • If there is clear evidence that the findings are unreliable, either as a result of misconduct (e.g. data fabrication) or honest error (e.g. miscalculation or experimental error).
  • If cases of evidence of multiple submission, duplicate publication, and unethical research. 
  • If the findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper cross referencing, permission or justification (i.e. cases of redundant publication).
  • If the research constitutes plagiarism.
  • Where there is evidence of fraudulent authorship, fraudulent use of data or the like.
  • If there is evidence of unethical research.

The COPE retraction guidelines can be found on the COPE website.

Where the decision has been taken to retract an article JIPK will:

  • Add a “retracted” watermark to the published Version of Record of the article.
  • Issue a separate retraction statement, titled ‘Retraction: [article title]’, that will be linked to the retracted article on JIPK Online.
  • Paginate and make available the retraction statement in the online issue of the journal.
  • The HTML version of the document is removed.


Article removal: legal limitations

In an extremely limited number of cases, it may be necessary to remove an article from the online database. This will only occur where the article is clearly defamatory, or infringes others’ legal rights, 

JIPK will consider removal of a published article from JIPK Online in very limited circumstances:

  • If the article contains content that could pose a serious risk to health if followed or acted upon.
  • If the article is defamatory or infringes other legal rights.
  • If an article is subject to a court order.

In case of an article being removed from JIPK Online, a removal notice will be issued in its place.



Article replacement

In cases where the article, if acted upon, might pose a serious health risk, the authors of the original article may wish to retract the flawed original and replace it with a corrected version. In these circumstances the procedures for retraction will be followed with the difference that the database retraction notice will publish a link to the corrected re-published article and a history of the document.
