Publication Ethics

For Author

To prevent any ethical misconduct in the publication of this journal, authors are expected to adhere to common ethical policy in academic publication. The author has to ensure and make a statement that his/her manuscript has not been published and/or submitted to other journals for publication. The author is also expected to utilize proper citation (Chicago style is an option) and acknowledgement. Jurnal Ilmiah Hubungan International (JIHI) will not tolerate any kinds of plagiarism and research frauds (data fabrication and falsification).

When published by JIHI, the manuscript’s copyright becomes the property of JIHI. If the author would like to withdraw an article submission, he/she has to inform JIHI and an agreement should be reached between both parties. When the manuscript is published, authors may use their published article under JIHI copyrights.

To ensure the sustainability of our journals, authors who have previously published their article on JIHI may publish a new article after four (4) editions have elapsed.


For Editorial Board

Editorial board of JIHI is fully responsible for all of the manuscripts that are already published and will be published in every edition. The board is also responsible to decide which manuscript will be published in every edition, based on the reviews from reviewers. Editorial board has to ensure equal opportunities for submission, not making decisions based on aspects such as gender, nationality, religion, ethnic and political principle.

Editorial board has to ensure that articles published have gone through blind review process. Editorial board also ensures that the identity of the author is not known by the reviewer and vice versa. The manuscripts are not to be discussed with external parties without permission from the editor in chief. Editorial board is not allowed to use any manuscript for personal benefit without author’s permission.


For Reviewer

The reviewer will receive a manuscript without the author’s identity to make sure that the review process is fair. The reviewer has to ensure the anonymity of the process. The reviewer has to make fair and objective evaluation of the manuscript with clear arguments and explanations. Any decision on the manuscript, whether to be published, revised or rejected is based on reviewer’s evaluation.
