Peer Review Process

Every submitted manuscript will be selected by the Editorial Board. Manuscripts that meet the standard writing criteria will be forwarded to the reviewer while manuscripts that do not meet the standard writing criteria will be returned to the author without reviews by the reviewer. The manuscript reviewed by the reviewer will be returned to the author if corrections are required. After the authors make improvements in accordance with the input and ratings from the reviewers, then the authors must submit the revised manuscript to be re-reviewed. The manuscript will be reviewed by anonymously reviewer, and Reviewers are unaware of the identity of the authors (double blind review method) and be given recommendations. Reviewing process will consider novelty, objectivity, method, scientific impact, conclusion, and references. The decision whether a manuscript is approved or rejected will be decided by the Editor In Chief based on the recommendation from the reviewer in the Editorial Board meeting forum. Plagiarism screening will also be conducted using Ithenticate Online plagiarism detection.

Publication Ethic

Ethics of Publication in KABANTI

All parties involved in the publishing/publication process of the Jurnal KABANTI i.e. Managers, Editor, Mitra Bebestari, and the Author must understand and adhere to the norms/ethics of scientific publication. Scientific work for publication, in essence, must uphold the three ethical values in the publication, namely; (i) Neutrality, which is free from conflict of interest in the management of publications; (ii) Justice, which gives the right of authorship to those entitled as author / authorship; and (iii) Honesty, which is free of duplication, fabrication, falsification, and plagiarism (DF2P) in the publication.

Authors should refrain from misrepresenting research results which could damage the trust in the journal, the professionalism of scientific authorship, and ultimately the entire scientific endeavor.  Maintaining the integrity of the research and its presentation can be achieved by following the rules of good scientific practice, which include:

  • The manuscript has not been published previously (partly or in full) unless the new work concerns an expansion of previous work (please provide transparency on the re-use of material to avoid the hint of text-recycling (‘self-plagiarism’).
  • A single study is not split up into several parts to increase the number of submissions and submitted to various journals or to one journal over time.
  • No data have been fabricated or manipulated (including images) to support your conclusions.
  • No data, text, or theories by others are presented as if they were the author’s own (‘plagiarism’). Proper acknowledgments to other works must be given (this includes material that is closely copied (near verbatim), summarized and/or paraphrased), quotation marks are used for verbatim copying of material, and permissions are secured for material that is copyrighted. 
  • Consent to submit has been received explicitly from all co-authors, as well as from the responsible authorities.
  • Authors whose names appear on the submission have contributed sufficiently to the scientific work and therefore share collective responsibility and accountability for the results.
  • Authors are strongly advised to ensure the correct author group, corresponding author, and order of authors at submission. Changes of authorship or in the order of authors are not accepted after acceptance of a manuscript.
  • Adding and/or deleting authors at revision stage may be justifiably warranted. A letter must accompany the revised manuscript to explain the role of the added and/or deleted author(s). Further documentation may be required to support your request.
  • Requests for addition or removal of authors as a result of authorship disputes after acceptance are honored after formal notification by the institute or independent body and/or when there is an agreement between all authors. 

If there is a suspicion of misconduct, If, after investigation, the allegation seems to raise valid concerns, the accused author will be contacted and given an opportunity to address the issue. If misconduct has been established beyond reasonable doubt, this may result in the Editor-in-Chief’s implementation of the following measures, including, but not limited to: 

  • If the article is still under consideration, it may be rejected and returned to the author. 
  • If the article has already been published online, depending on the nature and severity of the infraction, either an erratum will be placed with the article or in severe cases retraction of the article will occur. The reason must be given in the published erratum or retraction note. Please note that retraction means that the paper is maintained on the platform, watermarked “retracted” and explanation for the retraction is provided in a note linked to the watermarked article.
  • The author’s institution may be informed.

Screening Plagiarism

Plagiarism screening will also be conducted using Ithenticate Online plagiarism detection, grammar check, grading tools.
