Publication Ethics



AL-Jauhari Scientific Journal (JIAJ) Journal of Islamic and Interdisciplinary Studies is a periodically managed peer-reviewed journal, where other scientists (peer/review) evaluate the value and credibility of articles before they are published. This journal is dedicated to publishing scientific articles in Islamic studies from various aspects and perspectives as determined themes. This journal is published twice a year, namely in June and December. The journal aims to become one of the containers for the dissemination of ideas and the results of Islamic studies. In addition, it can be a major reference in the field of Islamic studies. Al-Jauhari Journal has a commitment to maintaining ethical standards in scientific publishing in peer-reviewed, writers, journal editors, and publishers.



Al-Jauhari Journal is an important building in the development of coherent and respected networks in the field of science. This is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and institutions that support them. The peer-reviewed article has supported and fulfilled the elements of the scientific method. Therefore, it is important to agree on a standard of ethical behavior that is expected to be adhered to by all parties involved in the act of publishing: writers, editors, reviewers, publishers, and society in general. The publisher of IAIN Sultan Amai Gorontalo takes full duty and responsibility and upholds ethics in the whole stage of publishing. The postgraduate of IAIN Sultan Amai Gorontalo is committed to ensuring that advertisements, brochures and other commercial fields will not affect or influence the editorial board's decision.


Publication Decisions 

Editors in the Al-Jauhari Journal are responsible for deciding whether an article that has been submitted to the editorial board of the journal is feasible and will be published. This decision is important to be known and accepted by researchers and readers. The editors always refer to the policies of the editorial board of the journal and always adhere to the applicable legal provisions, for example about defamation, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. In making each decision, the editors will discuss with other editing partners or with reviewers to get the best decision.


Plagiarism Screening

Basically the task of the writer is to ensure that the manuscript sent to the editorial board of the journal has been free from the elements of plagiarism and misconduct or other academic violations. However, the editor will still re-examine each article before publication. The first step is to examine the element of plagiarism in an offline database that has been developed by the Postgraduate of IAIN Sultan Amai Gorontalo. The second step is to examine the database online as much as possible.


Fair Play

In evaluating each received text, the editor will assess the intellectual content of a text regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnicity, citizenship, or political attitudes of the authors.



The editors 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 editors' own research without the express written consent of the author.



Contribution to Editorial Decisions

Peer review assists the editors in making editorial decisions and through the editorial communications with the authors may also assist the author in improving the quality of 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 editors 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. 


Acknowledgement of Sources

Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by a proper citation. A reviewer should also call to the editors' 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 with any of the authors, companies, or institutions related to the papers.


Review Process

Every manuscript submitted to Al-Jauhari is independently reviewed by at least two reviewers in the form of "double-blind review". Decision for publication, amendment, or rejection is based upon their reports/recommendation. In certain cases, the editor may submit an article for review to another, third reviewer before making a decision, if necessary.




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.


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.


Acknowledgement 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 research. 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 on 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.


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.
