Publication Ethics

Ethical Guidelines for Journal Publications

The publication of an article in the IRDH International Journal of Social Sciences & Humanities (IRDH IJSCH) is an important building block in the development of a coherent and recognized knowledge network. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the writers' work and the institutions that support them. Therefore, it is important to agree on standards of ethical behavior expected for all parties involved in publishing action: authors, journal editors, bestseller partners, publishers, and the public. We are committed to ensuring that advertising, reprints, or other commercial revenue does not affect editorial decisions. In addition, the IRDH and the Editorial Board will assist in communication with other journals and/or publishers, where this is useful and necessary.

Publication Decision

IRDH International Journal of Social Sciences & Humanities (IRDH IJSCH) editor is responsible for deciding which submitted articles should be published. The validation of such work and its importance to researchers and readers must always drive the decision. The editors may be guided by the policy of the editorial board of the journal and are restricted by applicable legal provisions, such as pollution of the good name, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. The editors can consult with other editors or bestari partners in making this decision.

Justice Aspects

The editor at all times evaluates the script for the intellectual content of the author, regardless of the race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnicity, nationality, or political views of the authors.


The editor and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about the submitted manuscript to anyone other than the author, reviewer, prospective revisor, other appropriate board of editors, and publisher, as appropriate.

Disclosure and conflict of interest

Material not published in a submitted manuscript may not be used in the editor's own research without the author's written consent.

Reviewer tasks:

Contribution to Editorial Decision

The reviewer helps the editor make editorial decisions and can help the writer improve the quality of the manuscript through the editor.


Any selected reviewer who feels unqualified or interested in reviewing the manuscript and/or does not have enough time to review it should immediately notify the editor and withdraw from the review process.


Any manuscript received for review must be treated as a confidential document. The manuscript must not be distributed or discussed with others unless authorized by the editor.

Objectivity Standard

Reviews must be objective. Personal criticism of the author is not worthy of being submitted. The reviewer must express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

Recognition of the Source

 The reviewer must identify the relevant published work that has not been quoted by the author. A statement that an observation, derivation, or argument has been previously made must be accompanied by a relevant quotation. The reviewer must also state to the editor if there is any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript considered and any other published article.

Disclosure and Interest Strike

Information or ideas obtained in the review process must be kept confidential and not used for personal gain. A reviewer must reject a script in which they have a conflict of interest as a result of competition, collaboration, or other relationships or connections with one of the authors, companies, or agencies associated with the manuscript.

Writer's tasks:

Reporting Standard

The author of the original research report must present an accurate report of the work carried out as well as an objective discussion of the significance of the research. The underlying data must be accurately included in the manuscript. A manuscript must contain enough details and references to allow others to imitate the work. Deliberately reporting fraud or providing inaccurate information is unethical and unacceptable behavior.

Data Access and Retention

The author is asked to provide raw data related to the manuscript for the editorial and should be prepared to provide public access to such data (consistent with the IJMB IRDH journal), if possible, and must in any case retain such data after publication.

Originality and plagiarism

The authors must make sure that they have written the work entirely original, and if the authors have used the work or words of others, then these have been quoted correctly.

Double, redundant, and simultaneous publications

A writer must not publish a manuscript that outlines the same research essence in more than one journal or major publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal at the same time is unethical and unacceptable publication behavior.

Recognition of the Source

Appropriate recognition of the work of others must always be given. A writer must quote publications that have influenced the determination of the work he reports.

Manuscript Author List

Authors should be restricted only to those who have made significant contributions to the conception, design, implementation, or interpretation of the research. All individuals who have made significant contributions must be listed as co-authors. Persons or other parties who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project must be recognized or recorded as contributors. The correspondence writer must ensure that all the corresponding authors are listed in the manuscript, that there are no inappropriate authors, and that all authors have viewed and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to submit it for publication.

Dangers and Subjects Human or animal

If the work involves chemicals, procedures, or equipment that have unusual dangers inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify this in the manuscript. Disclosure and conflict of interest All authors must disclose in their manuscripts any conflict of interest, either substantive or financial, that may be interpreted to affect the outcome or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project must be disclosed.

Fundamental Errors in Published Works

When the author finds significant errors or inaccuracies in the work he publishes, it is the author's duty to immediately notify the editor of the journal or publisher and cooperate with the editor to withdraw or correct the manuscript.
