Originality and Plagiarism

Authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works for JSeD, and appropriate citations are required if they use the work and/or words of others. Plagiarism takes many forms, from passing off another's paper as an author's own paper to copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of another's paper without attribution, and claiming results from research conducted by others. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical scientific behavior and is unacceptable.

The editors of JSeD apply the plagiarism provisions meticulously. Each sentence and word in the manuscript are examined in close detail. Excluding approximately 15 percent of references or methods that are often very similar to what have been published in other papers is deemed acceptable. Certain sentences that constitute definitions (for example, the definition of innate immunity) are used repeatedly; plagiarism in those sentences is often unavoidable and is therefore generally accepted.  Plagiarism screening will be conducted by the editors of JSeD using Turnitin.


Article Processing Charges

JSeD charges an article processing fee of IDR 1,250,000 or US$ 70 per article.   The author makes a payment after the manuscript is confirmed to be accepted.  The journal does not charge a manuscript submission fee.

The fee is to support the open-access dissemination of articles, manage various costs associated with handling and editing of submitted manuscripts, in addition to journal management and publication in general.

An automatic waiver of publishing costs is applied to non-Indonesian affiliated authors who first publish their articles in JSeD.  If an author cannot pay such fee, a waiver may be proposed.
