Ethical standards for publication exist to ensure high-quality scientific publications, public trust in scientific findings, and that people receive credit for their work and ideas.
All manuscripts are subject to peer review and are expected to meet standards of academic excellence. If approved by the editor, submissions will be considered by peer reviewers, whose identities will remain anonymous to the authors. Authors are able to mention excluded reviewers in their cover letters and although this information will be forwarded to the handling editor this may not be honored due to editorial requirements in peer review.
Our Research Integrity team will occasionally seek advice outside standard peer review, for example, on submissions with serious ethical, security, biosecurity, or societal implications. We may consult experts and the academic editor before deciding on appropriate actions, including but not limited to recruiting reviewers with specific expertise, assessment by additional editors, and declining to further consider a submission.
Authors cannot use other people's words, numbers, or ideas without attribution. All sources must be quoted at the point they are used, and reuse of words must be limited and linked or quoted in the text. Al-QADHA: Jurnal Hukum Islam dan Perundang-undangan (AL-QADHA: Journal of Islamic Law and Legislation) uses our own software to detect shipments that overlap with manuscripts that are published and sent.
Manuscripts found that have been copied from manuscripts by other authors, whether published or not, will be rejected and the author may be subject to sanctions. Every article published may need to be corrected or withdrawn.
Principles of Justice
Al-QADHA: Jurnal Hukum Islam dan Perundang-undangan (AL-QADHA: Journal of Islamic Law and Legislation) only considers original content, that is, articles that have not been published before, including in languages other than Indonesian, English or Arabic. Articles based on content previously published only on preprint servers, institutional repositories, or in the thesis will be considered.
Manuscripts submitted to Al-QADHĀ: Jurnal Hukum Islam dan Perundang-undangan (AL-QADHA: Journal of Islamic Law and Legislation) may not be submitted elsewhere with consideration and must be withdrawn before being submitted to another place. Authors whose articles are found to have been sent simultaneously elsewhere may be subject to sanctions.
Authors whose submitted manuscripts are found to include citations whose primary purpose is to increase the number of citations to a given author’s work, or to articles published in a particular journal, may incur sanctions.
Editors and reviewers must not ask authors to include references merely to increase citations to their own or an associate’s work, to the journal, or to another journal they are associated with.
Fabrication and Falsification
The authors of submitted manuscripts or published articles that are found to have fabricated or falsified the results, including the manipulation of images, may incur sanctions, and published articles may be retracted.
Authorship and Acknowledgements
All listed authors must have made a significant scientific contribution to the research in the manuscript, approved its claims, and agreed to be an author. It is important to list everyone who made a significant scientific contribution. We refer to the Al-QADHA: Jurnal Hukum Islam dan Perundang-undangan (AL-QADHA: Journal of Islamic Law and Legislation) guidelines. Author contributions may be described at the end of the submission, optionally using roles defined by CRediT. Changes in authorship must be declared to the journal and agreed to by all authors.
Anyone who contributed to the research or manuscript preparation, but is not an author, should be acknowledged with their permission.
Submissions by anyone other than one of the authors will not be considered.
Conflicts of Interest
Conflicts of interest (COIs, also known as ‘competing interests’) occur when issues outside research could be reasonably perceived to affect the neutrality or objectivity of the work or its assessment. Potential conflicts of interest must be declared—whether or not they actually had an influence—to allow informed decisions. In most cases, this declaration will not stop work from being published nor will it always prevent someone from being involved in a review process.
If unsure, declare a potential interest or discuss with the editorial office. Undeclared interests may incur sanctions. Submissions with undeclared conflicts that are later revealed may be rejected. Published articles may need to be re-assessed, have a corrigendum published, or in serious cases be retracted.
Conflicts include the following:
- Financial—funding and other payments, goods and services received or expected by the authors relating to the subject of the work or from an organization with an interest in the outcome of the work
- Affiliations—being employed by, on the advisory board for, or a member of an organization with an interest in the outcome of the work
- Intellectual property—patents or trademarks owned by someone or their organization
- Personal—friends, family, relationships, and other close personal connections
- Ideology—beliefs or activism, for example, political or religious, relevant to the work
- Academic—competitors or someone whose work is critiqued
Authors must declare all potential interests in a ‘Conflicts of interest’ section, which should explain why the interest may be a conflict. If there are none, the authors should state “The author(s) declare(s) that there are no conflicts of interest regarding the publication of this paper.” Submitting authors are responsible for coauthors declaring their interests.
Authors must declare current or recent funding (including article processing charges) and other payments, goods, or services that might influence the work. All funding, whether a conflict or not, must be declared in the ‘Acknowledgments’.
The involvement of anyone other than the authors who 1) has an interest in the outcome of the work; 2) is affiliated to an organization with such an interest; or 3) was employed or paid by a funder, in the commissioning, conception, planning, design, conduct, or analysis of the work, the preparation or editing of the manuscript or the decision to publish must be declared.
Declared conflicts of interest will be considered by the editor and reviewers and included in the published article.
Editors and Reviewers
Editors and reviewers should decline to be involved with a submission when they
- Have a recent publication or current submission with any author
- Share or recently shared an affiliation with any author
- Collaborate or recently collaborated with any author
- Have a close personal connection to any author
- Have a financial interest in the subject of the work
- Feel unable to be objective
Reviewers must declare any remaining interests in the ‘Confidential’ section of the review form, which will be considered by the editor.
Editors and reviewers must declare if they have previously discussed the manuscript with the authors.
If Journal becomes aware of breaches of our publication ethics policies, whether or not the breach occurred in a journal published by Al-QADHA: Jurnal Hukum Islam dan Perundang-undangan (AL-QADHA: Journal of Islamic Law and Legislation), the following sanctions may be applied across journals:
- Rejection of the manuscript and any other manuscripts submitted by the author(s).
- Not allowing submission for 1–3 years.
- Prohibition from acting as an editor or reviewer.
Al-QADHĀ: Jurnal Hukum Islam dan Perundang-undangan (AL-QADHĀ: Journal of Islamic Law and Legislation) may apply additional sanctions for severe ethical violations.
