Publication Ethics

 Ethical Guidelines for Journal Publication

Jurnal Ilmiah Perikanan dan Kelautan (JIPK) is strongly committed to upholding the ethical standards of publications and taking all actions for any authors who commit publication malpractice. All authors who submit their work to JIPK journals for publication as original articles prove that the submitted works represent the contributions of their authors and have not been copied or plagiarized in whole or in part from other works.

The authors acknowledge that they have disclosed all and any actual or potential conflicts of interest with their work or partial benefits associated with it. In the same manner the journal is committed to objective and fair-single blind peer-review of the submitted for publication works and to preventing any actual or potential conflict of interests between the editorial and review personnel and the reviewed material. Any departures from the above-defined rules should be reported directly to the Editors-in-Chief who are unequivocally committed to providing swift resolutions to any of such type of problems.

All submitted works will be checked by anti-plagiarism software. Plagiarism detected will be banned for further publication procedures. Authors who have committed to plagiarizing and violating other ethnic publications will be banned from publishing in JIPK.

We are committed to ensuring that advertising, reprint or other commercial revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions. In addition Faculty of Fisheries and Marine of Universitas Airlangga and Editorial Board will assist in communications with other journals and/or publishers where this is useful and necessary. This statement is based on COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.

 

 DUTIES OF AUTHORS

 Reporting standards

 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. 

Data access and retention

Authors may be asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such data, if practicable, and should, in any event, be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication.

Originality and plagiarism

The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted. Plagiarism takes many forms, from 'passing off' another's paper as the author's own paper, to copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of another's paper (without attribution), to claiming results from research conducted by others. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.

Multiple, redundant or concurrent publication

An author should not, in general, publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. In general, an author should not submit for consideration in another journal a previously published paper. Publication of some kinds of articles (e.g. guidelines, translations) in more than one journal is sometimes justifiable, provided certain conditions are met. The authors and editors of the journals concerned must agree to the secondary publication, which must reflect the same data and interpretation of the primary document. The primary reference must be cited in the secondary publication.

Acknowledgment of sources

Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work. Information obtained privately, as in conversation, correspondence, or discussion with third parties, must not be used or reported without explicit, written permission from the source. Information obtained in the course of confidential services, such as refereeing manuscripts or grant applications, must not be used without the explicit written permission of the author of the work involved in these services.

Authorship of the paper

Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors ( so its mean that manuscript at least have author and co-author). Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included on the paper and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication. If the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify these in the manuscript.

Disclosure and conflicts of interest

All authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflicts of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed. Examples of potential conflicts of interest that should be disclosed include employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, paid expert testimony, patent applications/registrations, and grants or other funding. Potential conflicts of interest should be disclosed at the earliest stage possible.

Fundamental errors in published works

When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author's obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper. If the editor or the publisher learns from a third party that a published work contains a significant error, it is the obligation of the author to promptly retract or correct the paper or provide evidence to the editor of the correctness of the original paper.

Ethical considerations for the use of animals

Jurnal Ilmiah Perikanan dan Kelautan (JIPK) takes its responsibility towards animal/fish welfare very seriously, whether it concerns fish collection, predator-prey interactions or invasive surgical procedures. Any research in this Work done on animals/fish (if applicable) adheres to currently applicable and internationally recognized ethical standards, and that recognized ethics committee approval for the research was obtained. At the same time JIPK recognizes that permitting requirements for animal collections and animal welfare have regional differences and therefore may not be exactly the same as those stipulated in Indonesia country, which is the home of JIPK.

Therefore, when a research paper that involves animal experimentation or harm is submitted to JIPK, authors are accepting and acknowledging that appropriate permits for animal collections and animal welfare issues were sought and approved by the local committee(s) responsible for such permits.

Furthermore, as specific evidence of the permitting, a clear statement must be provided in the first paragraph of the Materials and Methods for any submissions to the JIPK. This statement may take a form similar to the following:

[1] "The care and use of experimental animals complied with [Insert the local or national body] animal welfare laws, guidelines and policies as approved by [Insert the local or national permitting authority and the permit reference number]".

[2] This experiment was performed on the basis of approval by the laboratory animals use the research ethics committee of faculty of veterinary medicine [2019/23/UA], Airlangga University, Indonesia

[3] This experiment was performed according to all ethics and animal rights (Desert Research Center). As much as this work had considering all rules and regulations in conformity with the European Union directive for the protection of experimental animals (2010/63/EU).

Independent of any such permits, the JIPK still reserves the right to reject papers on an ethical basis should valid concerns emerge from the contents of the research paper. Indeed, if a submission is received from a country where no such permitting is required, then the decision rests solely with the Editor-in-Chief, who will seek advice from the Editorial Team, referees and other qualified scientists as needed. Therefore, it is essential that authors are clear in their Materials and Methods on questions such as:

  • Were fishes collected as part of faunal surveys?
  • Were fishes killed during or at the end of your experiment (e.g., for tissue sampling)?
  • Were surgical procedures performed?
  • Did the experimental conditions severely distress any fishes involved in your experiments?
  • Did any procedures (e.g., predation studies, toxicity testing) cause lasting harm to sentient fishes?
  • Did any procedure involve sentient, un-anesthetized animals that were subjected to chemical agents that induce neuromuscular blockade, such as muscle relaxants?

Ahead of submission, authors will benefit greatly from reading our Editorials on animal welfare: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.0022-1112.2006.01035.x/full (2006), http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1095-8649.2010.02900.x/full (2011), and https://www.elsevier.com/journals/fish-and-shellfish-immunology/1050-4648/guide-for-authors#6000

 

DUTIES OF THE EDITORIAL BOARD

Publication decisions

The editor of a peer-reviewed Jurnal Ilmiah Perikanan dan Kelautan (JIPK) is responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published. The validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers must always drive such decisions. The editor 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 editor may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.

Disclosure and conflicts of interest

Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in an editor's own research without the express written consent of the author. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Editors should recuse themselves (i.e. should ask a co-editor, associate editor or other members of the editorial board instead to review and consider) from considering manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or (possibly) institutions connected to the papers. Editors should require all contributors to disclose relevant competing interests and publish corrections if competing interests are revealed after publication. If needed, other appropriate action should be taken, such as the publication of a retraction or expression of concern.

Involvement and cooperation in investigations

An editor should take reasonably responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper, in conjunction with the publisher (or society). Such measures will generally include contacting the author of the manuscript or paper and giving due consideration of the respective complaint or claims made, but may also include further communications to the relevant institutions and research bodies, and if the complaint is upheld, the publication of a correction, retraction, expression of concern, or other note, as may be relevant. Every reported act of unethical publishing behavior must be looked into, even if it is discovered years after publication.

 

DUTIES OF REVIEWERS

 Contribution to editorial decisions

Peer review assists the editor in making editorial decisions and through the editorial communications with the author may also assist the author in improving the paper. Peer review is an essential component of formal scholarly communication and lies at the heart of the scientific method.

Promptness

Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse himself from the review process.

Confidentiality

Any manuscripts 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.

Standards of objectivity

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

Acknowledgment of sources

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 manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.

Disclosure and conflict of interest

Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in a reviewer's own research without the express written consent of the author. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts 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.

Review Process
Every manuscript submitted to Jurnal Ilmiah Perikanan dan Kelautan (JIPK) is independently reviewed by at least two reviewers in the form of "double-blind review". The decision for publication, amendment, or rejection is based upon their reports/recommendations. In certain cases, the editor may submit an article for review to another, the third reviewer before making a decision, if necessary.
