Publication Ethics

Hadharah: Jurnal Keislaman dan Peradaban aims to ensure the highest ethical standards for publication to accept high-quality scientific publications and public trust in scientific findings, as well as to promote authors of manuscripts receive credit for their ideas. All processes are maintained by adhering to the Publication Ethics (COPE) and its Best Practice Guidelines in every possible way.


Manuscripts that are found to have been plagiarized from a manuscript by other authors will be considered plagiarism. The plagiarism screening process will take place at the beginning of the review process prior to being handed to the reviewer(s) and in the editing process. In case of plagiarism is detected after the manuscript is published, the editor will immediately remove the article from the issue list with a notification of publication ethics infringement.

Duplicate Submission

Manuscripts that are found to have been published elsewhere, or to be under review elsewhere will be considered as a violation of duplicate submission. If authors have used their own previously published work, or work that is currently being reviewed, as the basis for a submitted manuscript, they are required to properly cite the previous work to avoid self-plagiarism (auto-plagiarism) once after both manuscripts are published.

Citation Manipulation

Submitted manuscripts that are found to include false citations whose primary purpose is to increase the number of citations to a particular author's work or articles published in any particular journal are considered a violation of citation manipulation.

Data Falsification

Submitted manuscripts that are found to have falsified research results and findings (including the manipulation of graphs, images, or charts) will be considered as a violation of data falsification.

Improper Author Attribution

All sources reiterated in the submitted manuscript must be given proper attribution as required by the license derived from the original source.

Conflicts of Interest

Hadharah: Jurnal Keislaman dan Peradaban encourages authors to avoid any Conflicts of interests (COIs, also known as ‘competing interests’) that occur when issues outside research could be reasonably perceived to affect the neutrality or objectivity of the work or its assessment. However, any occurring potential conflicts of interest must be declared – whether or not they actually had an influence – to allow informed decisions. In most cases, this declaration will not stop work from being published nor will it always prevent someone from being involved in a review process.

Upon cases of uncertainty, declaration of potential interest or discussion with the editors is highly encouraged. Undeclared interests may lead to consequences of rejection or being re-assessed which might cause to be retracted from being published.

Conflicts of interest include:

  1. Financial – funding and other payments, goods and services received or expected by the authors relating to the subject of the work or from an organization with an interest in the outcome of the work.
  2. Affiliations – being employed by, on the advisory board for, or a member of an organization with an interest in the outcome of the work.
  3. Intellectual property – patents or trademarks owned by someone or their organization.
  4. Personal – friends, family, relationships, and other close personal connections.
  5. Ideology – beliefs or activism, e.g. political or religious, relevant to the work.
  6. Academic – competitors or someone whose work is critiqued.

Authors must declare current or recent funding and other payments, goods or services that might influence the work. All funding, whether a conflict or not, must be declared in the ‘Acknowledgments’. Declared conflicts of interest (if any) will be considered by the editor and reviewers and included in the published article.

Editors and reviewers should not be involved with a submission when they:

  1. Have a recent publication or current submission with any author.
  2. Collaborate or recently collaborated with any author.
  3. Have a financial interest in the subject of the work.
  4. Experience inability to be objective.

In any way possible, Hadharah: Jurnal Keislaman dan Peradaban aims to avoid assigning submissions to editors and inviting reviewers, should there be a conflict of interest; in which they should decline in any of the above situations and declare any conflicts to the journal. Reviewers must declare their interests in the ‘Confidential’ section of the review form, which will be considered by the editor. Close competitors should consider declining. Editors and reviewers must declare if they have previously discussed the manuscript with the authors during the initial editorial meeting.
