This statement explains the ethical behavior of all parties involved in the publishing process including the writer, Editorial Board, Expert Editor, and Publisher.
Ethical Guidelines for Publishing
Publishing articles in MALIA is a very important process in developing a coherent and respectable knowledge. This is a direct reflection of the quality of work and the writer's institutions that support researchers. The articles reviewed contain and support scientific methodology. Therefore, it is important to agree on standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the publishing process including writers, editors, expert editors, implementing editors, publishers, and the public.
The Syariah Economics Study Program at the University of Yudharta Pasuruan, as the publisher of the MALIA journal, is responsible for overseeing all stages of publishing seriously and recognizing ethical and other responsibilities. The agency ensures that every advertisement and other commercial income does not have an impact or influence on editorial decisions. Apart from that, it also helps to communicate with other journal publishers if it is useful and necessary.
Decision of Issuance
The editors are responsible for deciding the articles submitted must be published. The validation of these works and their importance to the writer and reader must support that decision. The editors are guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and are limited by laws covering libel, copyright, and plagiarism. Editors can discuss with other editors or the assessment team to decide on policies.
The editors always judge texts based on their intellectuality regardless of race, gender, creed, ethnicity, nationality or political philosophy of the writer.
Expert editors and implementing editors are prohibited from disclosing any information related to the manuscript sent to anyone other than to the authors themselves, senior editors, bestari partners, and publishers.
Notification and Conflict of Interest
All unpublished content written in the manuscript is forbidden to be used in the editor's own research without confirmation from the author.
Contribution to Editor's Decisions
Expert Editor's Rating helps editors make editorial decisions and through communication between editorials and writers, this can help writers to improve their articles.
Every selected appraiser who does not feel qualified to assess a study published in a manuscript or knows that his assessment requires more time, so he must inform the editors and withdraw from the assessment process.
Every accepted text that is assessed must be treated as a confidential document. It may not be displayed or discussed with others without the authority of the editor.
The assessment must be carried out objectively. Personal criticism of the author is not justified. Assessors must express their views clearly using supporting arguments.
The assessor must identify relevant articles that have not been cited by the author. Every statement of observation, derivation, or argument that has been previously reported must be accompanied by a relevant quote. The assessor must also ask the editor to pay attention to the similarities or overlaps between the texts that have been assessed and published.
Notification and Conflict of Interest
Confidential information or arguments obtained through the assessment of expert editors must be kept confidential and prohibited from being used for personal purposes. Assessors cannot judge a manuscript if they have a conflict of interest with the writer, company, or institution involved in writing the manuscript.
The author must present an accurate report about the article and an objective discussion about the significance of the article. Basic data must be presented accurately. Articles must include enough detail and references to allow others to do the same research. Fraudulent statements or intentionally inaccurate statements are unethical and unacceptable behavior.
Originality and Plagiarism
The writers must ensure that they have written their original article, in addition, they must quote correctly if they take other people's articles or words.
Multiple Publishing, Repetition or Coincidence
