Publication Ethics

Global Education Journal is a peer-reviewed national electronic journal. This statement clarifies the ethical behavior of all parties involved in the act of publishing articles in this journal, including the author, editor-in-chief, editorial board, peer reviewers and publishers (Civiliza Publishing, Indonesia).

This statement is based on COPE's Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.


Journal Publication Ethics Guidelines

The peer-reviewed publication of an article in the journal Global Education Journal is an important building block in the development of a coherent and respected knowledge network.

This is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support it. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree on standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: authors, journal editors, peer reviewers, publishers, and the public.


Civiliza Publishing as the publisher of Global Education Journal takes its duties as trustee for all stages of publishing very seriously and we are aware of ethical and other responsibilities. We are committed to ensuring that advertising, reprint or other commercial revenue does not impact or influence editorial decisions. In addition, the Editorial Board will assist in communication with other journals and/or publishers if this is useful and necessary.


Publication Decision

The editor of the Global Education Journal journal is responsible for deciding which articles submitted to the journal should be published. The validation of the work and its importance to researchers and readers should always drive those decisions. The editor may be guided by the discretion of the journal's editorial board and limited by applicable legal requirements regarding defamation, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. The editor may consult other editors or reviewers in making this decision.


Fair play

Editors always evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to the author's race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, nationality, or political philosophy.



Editors and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about submitted manuscripts to anyone other than the appropriate authors, reviewers, potential reviewers, editorial advisers and publishers, as appropriate.


Disclosure and conflict of interest

Unpublished material disclosed in submitted manuscripts may not be used in an editor's own research without written consent from the author.


Reviewer Task

Peer reviewers assist editors in making editorial decisions and through editorial communications with authors can also assist authors in improving papers.



Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review research reported in a manuscript or knows that in-person review is not possible must inform the editor and withdraw from the review process.



Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They may not be displayed or discussed with others unless authorized by the editor.


Objectivity Standards

Reviews must be carried out objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate.

Referees must express their views clearly with supporting arguments.


Source Acknowledgment

Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the author. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument has been previously reported must be accompanied by a relevant citation. The reviewer should also call the editor's attention if there are substantial similarities or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and other published papers of which he or she is personally aware.


Disclosure and Conflict of Interest

Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal gain. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest arising from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with authors, companies,

or any institution associated with the newspaper.


Author assignment

Reporting standards: Authors of research reports must provide an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. The underlying data must be represented accurately in the paper.

Papers must contain sufficient detail and references to enable others to replicate the work. False or intentionally inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable.


Data Access and Retention

Authors are requested to provide raw data with respect to the paper for editorial review,
and must be prepared to provide public access to such data (consistent with the ALPSP-STM Statement on Data and Databases), where practicable, and must under no circumstances be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication.


Originality and Plagiarism
The authors must ensure that they have written the entirely original work, and if the author has used the work and/or words of others that this has been properly cited or cited.


Multiple, Redundant, or Concurrent Publications
An author may not generally publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or major publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal at the same time constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.


Source Acknowledgment

Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that were influential in determining the nature of the reported work.



Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, conduct, or interpretation of the reported research.
All who have made significant contributions must be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they must be recognized or listed as contributors. Corresponding authors must 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 approved its submission for publication.


Hazards and Human or Animal Subjects
If the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment that have unusual hazards inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify these in the manuscript.


Disclosure and Conflict of Interest
All authors must disclose in their manuscripts any financial or other substantive conflicts of interest that could be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscripts. All sources of financial support for the project must be disclosed.


Fundamental errors in published works

When an author discovers significant errors or inaccuracies in his self-published work, it is the author's obligation to immediately notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
