Publication Ethics

Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement

LINK (ISSN: 1829-5754)  is a peer-reviewed journal published by Pusat Penelitian dan Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat, Poltekkes Kemenkes Semarang. This statement  clarifies ethical behaviour of all parties involved in the act of  publishing an article in this journal, including the author, the chief  editor, the Editorial Board, the peer-reviewer­­­­­ and the publisher. This statement is based on COPE’s Best Practice  Guidelines for Journal Editors.

Ethical Guideline for Journal Publication

The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed LINK journal 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 behavior  for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the  journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher and the society.

Pusat Penelitian dan Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat, Poltekkes Kemenkes Semarang as publisher of LINK journal 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 Pusat Penelitian dan Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat, Poltekkes Kemenkes Semarang and Editorial Board will assist in communications with other journals and/or publishers where this is useful and necessary.

Publication decisions

The editor of the LINK journal 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 evaluate 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.

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 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.

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 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 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.

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.
