Publishing Ethical Statement

Ethical guidelines for journal publication(based on Elsevier policies)



(based on Elsevier policies and COPE's Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors)


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 behavior and are unacceptable". Review and professional publication articles should also be accurate and objective, and editorial opinion works should be clearly identified as such.

Data access and retention

Authors may be 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, 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. Plagiarism takes many forms, from 'passing off' another's paper as the author's own paper, to copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of another's paper (without attribution), to claiming results from research conducted by others. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.

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. In general, an author should not submit for consideration in another journal a previously published paper. Publication of some kinds of articles (e.g. guidelines, translations) in more than one journal is sometimes justifiable, provided certain conditions are met. The authors and editors of the journals concerned must agree to the secondary publication, which must reflect the same data and interpretation of the primary document. The primary reference must be cited in the secondary publication.

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. Information obtained privately, as in conversation, correspondence, or discussion with third parties, must not be used or reported without explicit, written permission from the source. Information obtained in the course of confidential services, such as refereeing manuscripts or grant applications, must not be used without the explicit written permission of the author of the work involved in these services.

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 ( so its mean that manuscript at least have author and co author). 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. 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. Examples of potential conflicts of interest which should be disclosed include employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, paid expert testimony, patent applications/registrations, and grants or other funding. Potential conflicts of interest should be disclosed at the earliest stage possible.

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. If the editor or the publisher learns from a third party that a published work contains a significant error, it is the obligation of the author to promptly retract or correct the paper or provide evidence to the editor of the correctness of the original paper.



(based on Elsevier policies and COPE's Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors)


Publication decisions

The editor 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 editor 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 editor may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.

Fair play

An editor should 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. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Editors should recuse themselves (i.e. should ask a co-editor, associate editor or other member of the editorial board instead to review and consider) from considering manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or (possibly) institutions connected to the papers. Editors should require all contributors to disclose relevant competing interests and publish corrections if competing interests are revealed after publication. If needed, other appropriate action should be taken, such as the publication of a retraction or expression of concern.

Involvement and cooperation in investigations

An editor should take reasonably responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper, in conjunction with the publisher (or society). Such measures will generally include contacting the author of the manuscript or paper and giving due consideration of the respective complaint or claims made, but may also include further communications to the relevant institutions and research bodies, and if the complaint is upheld, the publication of a correction, retraction, expression of concern, or other note, as may be relevant. Every reported act of unethical publishing behavior must be looked into, even if it is discovered years after publication.



(based on Elsevier policies and COPE's Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors)


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. Peer review is an essential component of formal scholarly communication, and lies at the heart of the scientific method.


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

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


Kebijakan Pembatalan, Penarikan, Penghapusan, dan Koreksi Artikel Terbitan Jurnal Kedokteran Brawijaya

Jurnal Kedokteran Brawijaya menjunjung tinggi etika penulisan dan publikasi ilmiah sebagai komitmen pada kebenarab ilmiah. Setiap penulis bertanggung jawab dalam menjunjung etika penulisan dan publikasi dengan menyatakan bahwa naskah yang dituliskan tidak memiliki unsur plagiasi termasuk didalamnya tidak diterbitkan di media lain. Penulis pertama atau corresponding author juga wajib memastikan pemenuhan kontribusi sebagai penulis sesuai dengan kriteria kepenulisan yang mengacu pada ICMJE. Semua komitmen tersebut dituangkan dalam bentuk pernyataan penulis serta prosedur JKB dalam proses review dan melakukan pengujian plagiasi secara berkala.

Dengan berbagai prosedur dan komitmen tersebut masih terdapat kemungkinan terjadi misconduct yang tidak berhasil dicegah, oleh karena itu JKB menetapkan kebijakan pembatalan, penarikan, dan koreksi artikel  yang mengacu pada COPE Guideline sebagai berikut:

Koreksi, pembatalan, dan  penarikan, dapat diajukan baik oleh penulis maupun redaksi setelah melalui kajian dan pertimbangan dewan editor berdasarkan data dan informasi yang tersedia. Kebijakan ini dapat terjadi karena “misconduct” terhadap kode etik publikasi yang sudah disepakati yang ditemukan selama proses review maupun setelah artikel diterbitkan, atau ditemukan berdasarkan laporan pengaduan.  Sumber informasi dapat berasal dari pembaca, penulis, pengelola jurnal lain, dan redaksi. Penetapan koreksi, pernyataan pembatalan, dan penarikan dilakukan melalui rapat Editor, dan konfirmasi kepada penulis dan pihak lain yang terkait.

Koreksi (erratum) diberlakukan ketika artikel sudah dipublikasi kemudian didapatkan informasi yang memerlukan perbaikan (koreksi), yang apabila tidak dilakukan dapat mempengaruhi interpretasi dari hasil tulisan. Naskah perbaikan di unggah disertasi catatan riwayat perbaikan.

Pembatalan (withdraw) diberlakukan pada artikel yang telah dinyatakan diterima namun belum dipublikasikan atau masih dalam proses “article in press”. Naskah tersebut tidak dipublikasikan dalam nomor regular JKB.  Tanda penarikan ditempatkan pada naskah “article in press”

Penarikan (retracted) diberlakukan ketika artikel sudah diterbitkan (published) dalam edisi resmi JKB. Tanda retraksi ditempatkan pada abstrak dan naskah artikel yang dipublikasi dalam bentuk water mark sehingga tetap dapat dilacak riwayat dan status naskah.

Pernyataan koreksi dan keputusan pembatalan, penarikan, dan penghapusan naskah akan disampaikan secara terbuka dalam laman berita pada Jurnal Kedokteran Brawijaya serta melekat pada artikel yang bersangkutan. Tembusan pernyataan akan dikirimkan kepada penulis dan institusi asal penulis.

Redaksi tidak akan menerima naskah dari Penulis (baik sebagai penulis utama maupun pendamping) yang telah ditetapkan melakukan pelanggaran kode etik publikasi, dalam penerbitan berikutnya selama 2 tahun.
