Ethical Guideline for Journal Publication

The publication of a peer-reviewed article in Inovasi : Jurnal Ekonomi, Keuangan, dan Manajemen, is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behaviour for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher, and the society.

Faculty of Economics and Business Mulawarman University, as the publisher of Inovasi : Jurnal Ekonomi, Keuangan dan Manajemen, takes its duties of guardianship over all stages of publishing extremely seriously, and we recognize our ethical and other responsibilities. We are committed to ensuring that advertising, reprint, or other commercial revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions. In addition, the Faculty of Economics and Business Mulawarman University and the Editorial Board will assist in communications with other journals and/or publishers where this is useful and necessary.

Publication decisions

The editor of the Inovasi : Jurnal Ekonomi, Keuangan dan Manajemen, 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 editors 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 editors may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.

Fair play

An editor at any time evaluates manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.


The editor and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate.

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Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in an editor's own research without the express written consent of the author.

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.


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.


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 the authors have not cited. 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

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.

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. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable.

Data Access and Retention

Authors are 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 (consistent with the ALPSP-STM Statement on Data and Databases), 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.

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 behaviour and is unacceptable.

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.

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. 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 in 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.

Hazards and Human or Animal Subjects

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 conflict 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.

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.

At Inovasi: Jurnal Ekonomi, Keuangan, dan Manajemen, we prioritize maintaining the integrity and completeness of the scholarly record of our content for all end users. Our policy on changes to articles after they have been published online is based on best practices in the academic publishing community. The authority of articles after publication is highly regarded. Adhering to this issue, Inovasi: Jurnal Ekonomi, Keuangan dan Manajemen follows COPE Guidelines for Retracting Articles.

An Erratum will be issued in the event of errors or omissions in an article. The Erratum is a statement by the original paper's authors that briefly describes any correction(s) resulting from errors or omissions. Any effects on the conclusions of the paper should be noted. The corrected article is not removed from the Inovasi: Jurnal Ekonomi, Keuangan dan Manajemen website, but notice of Erratum is given. The Erratum is made freely available to all readers and is linked to the corrected article.

If there is clear evidence that the findings in an article are unreliable due to misconduct or honest error, if the results have previously been published elsewhere without proper referencing, permission, or justification, if the work is plagiarized, or if the position reports unethical research, a Retraction will be issued. A Retraction is a notice that the paper should not be regarded as part of the scientific literature. To protect the integrity of the record, the retracted article is not removed from the Inovasi: Jurnal Ekonomi, Keuangan dan Manajemen website, but notice of retraction is given, is made freely available to all readers and is linked to the retracted article. The authors can issue a retraction when they have discovered substantial scientific errors or by the Editors or Publisher in other cases. In all cases, the retraction indicates the reason for the action and who is responsible for the decision. If a retraction is made without the unanimous agreement of the authors, that is also noted. The Publisher may redact or remove an article in rare and extreme cases involving legal infringement. Bibliographic information about the article will be retained to ensure the integrity of the scientific record.

Suppose typographical or production errors (the Publisher's fault) affect the integrity of the article metadata (such as title, author list, or byline) or significantly impact the readers' ability to comprehend the article. In that case, a Publisher's Note will be issued. A Publisher's Note notifies readers that an article has been corrected after publication. The original article is removed and replaced with an updated version. Publisher's Notes are freely available to all readers. Minor errors that do not affect the integrity of the metadata or a reader's ability to understand an article and that do not involve a scientific error or omission will be corrected at the discretion of the Publisher. In such a case, the original article is removed and replaced with an updated version, and the correction date is noted on the corrected article. Authors should also note that an original piece can only be removed and replaced with a corrected version less than one year after the original publication date. Corrections to an article with a publication date older than a Publisher's Note will only document one year.
