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

LP2M STIQ Wali Songo Situbondo as the publisher  of AS-SYIFA JOURNAL carries out its trusting duties at all stages of publishing seriously and we recognize ethical and other responsibilities. We are committed to ensuring that advertising, reprinting, or other commercial revenue does not impact or have an effect on editorial decisions.

Publication Decision

The editor of the AS-SYIFA JOURNAL  is responsible for deciding which articles are submitted to the journals that should be published. Validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers should always encourage such decisions. Editors can be guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and are limited by legal requirements such as those that then apply regarding defamation, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. Editors may confer with other editors or reviewers in making these decisions.

Fair Play

An editor at all times evaluates manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to the author's race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic origin, nationality, or political philosophy.


Neither editor and editorial staff shall disclose any information about manuscripts submitted to anyone other than the author, reviewer, potential reviewer, other editorial advisor, and appropriate publisher.

Disclosure and Conflict of Interest

Unpublished material disclosed in the submitted manuscript should not be used in the editor's own research without the written consent of the author.

Reviewer Duties

Contributions to Editorial Decisions

Peer review assists editors in making editorial decisions and through editorial communication with authors can also assist authors in improving the paper.


Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in the manuscript or knows that his quick review is unlikely to have to notify the editor and exempt himself from the review process.


Any manuscripts accepted for review must be treated as confidential documents. They may not be shown or discussed with others except as permitted by the editor.

Objectivity Standards

The review should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees must express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

Source Acknowledgment

The reviewer must identify relevant published works that have 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. A reviewer should also call the editor's attention any substantial similarities or overlaps between the manuscript under consideration and other published papers in which they have personal knowledge.

Disclosure and Conflict of Interest

Special information or ideas obtained through peer review should be kept confidential and not used for personal gain. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have a conflict of interest resulting from a competitive, collaborative, or other relationship or connection with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the paper.

Author's Duties

Reporting Standards

The author of the original research report should present an accurate report on the work done as well as an objective discussion of its significance. The underlying data must be accurately represented in the paper. A paper must contain sufficient details and references to allow others to replicate the work. Statements that are fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate constitute unethical and unacceptable behavior.

Originality and Plagiarism

The authors must ensure that they have written a completely original work, and if the author has used the work and/ or the words of others that this has been appropriately cited or cited.

Multiple, Redundant, or Concurrent Publications

An author should not generally publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one major journal or publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal simultaneously is unethical and unacceptable publishing behavior.

Source Acknowledgment

Proper recognition of the work of others should always be given. The author must cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

Paper Authorship

Authorship should be limited to those who have made significant contributions to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. If there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they must be recognized or listed as contributors. The corresponding author must ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no co-authors inappropriately include on paper, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have approved its submission for publication.

Disclosure and Conflict of Interest

All authors must disclose in their manuscripts any other financial or substantive conflicts of interest that may be construed to influence the outcome or interpretation of their manuscripts. All sources of financial support for the project must be disclosed.

Fundamental errors in published works

When an author finds significant errors or inaccuracies in his own published work, it is the author's obligation to promptly notify the editor or publisher of the journal and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
