Research and Publication Ethics

Research ethics for publication in the journal

            To ensure the journal meets the academic quality standards, it is necessary for the SSRI to maintain ethical standards for research and publication of academic works. This will enable the SSRI to benefit the readers of the academic publications or real use of the content of articles in various fields as well as to build credibility for the researcher, research institutes and the SSRI. For this reason, it is necessary for those involved in the preparation of academic work and its publication in the SSRI, to comply with the following ethics in research and publications.

1. Ethics of authors

1.1 Compliance with research ethics

            Authors and other relevant people who submit the articles to be published in the journal should strictly comply with research and publication ethics by not submitting articles which contain unethical or illegal, content in breach of regulations at the local and international level, or contrary to the morality of society.

1.2 Non-falsification of articles

            Academic work presented for publication in the SSRI must not contain false data and information, for example, modification of research data, research results, etc. 

1.3 Correct reference to academic work

            Authors must not copy other people's work or ideas in their articles, or fail to cite sources of ideas or information, in accordance with the principles and the standard form of academic references, that may result in bringing the work of others to be, or act, as their own work. Articles must not mention the name of authors who are not involved in writing the content of the academic work or have not actually participated in research on the subject.

1.4 Non-republishment

            Academic work to be considered for publication in the SSRI is the copyright of the SSRI.  Republishing academic work without the consent of the SSRI is a misdeed. In the same way, authors must not take articles that have been published in the SSRI and modify, adapt, or translate them into other languages for republication. Similarly, academic work presented for publication in the SSRI must not have been published previously in any other journal and/or be in the process of being considered for publication in another journal at the same time.

1.5 Non-infringement of copyrights

            Authors must not take articles written by other authors and present it as their own research. Copyrights held by other persons or organizations must be respected, and no such content may be published in the SSRI without permission from the copyright owner. In such cases, author must provide proof of permission to publish from the copyright owner and specify the name of the person or organization that funded the research.

1.6 No Conflicts of Interest

            Authors must take steps that are honest, transparent, and verifiable and must not have any conflicts of interest with stakeholders in their consideration for publication of their academic work in the SSRI. Authors must identify any conflict of interest that may arise from the publication of the research, and during the review process for publication in the SSRI, authors must keep confidentiality and not disclose any information to those who are not involved.

1.7 Editing articles as recommended by the reviewers

            Authors should edit their articles strictly as recommended by the editor and article reviewers and must proceed to revise the article within the specified time. If the author does not make corrections according to the instructions and by the specified time, it is the right of the SSRI to refuse publication of the author's article.

            Authors are responsible for their own articles and checking of the completeness of articles.  If clear evidence is found of the above-mentioned ethical misconduct, the academic work must be immediately withheld from review or withdrawn from the SSRI and the author will be responsible for any costs that may occur.

2. Ethics of reviewers

2.1 Professional review

            Selection of reviewers shall take into account the knowledge and expertise that are consistent with the content of each article and reviewers must use knowledge, expertise and full attention to understand the content of the article being review and can be graded according to the evaluation criteria including criticism and giving advice to help authors improve the articles to meet the standards of the SSRI.

2.2 Failure to copy or disclose the content of the article

            Reviewers must not use any portion of the content they have reviewed as their own work without the consent of the owner of the article or from the SSRI, including not disclosing information of the article under review to others.

2.3 Non-exploitation of review

            The selection of an appraiser must take into account the risk of any conflicts of interest by taking into account the relationship between the author and the reviewers and the benefits that the reviewer may receive from the content of the article.  In addition, reviewers must not take advantage of the articles they are evaluating, either by calling to benefit from authors who propose articles for publication or from others related to articles.

2.4 Maintaining review time

            The reviewers must strictly maintain the evaluation period according to the review time frame set by the editor of the SSRI.
