R-W-C Policy


Policy Statement

JAM: Jurnal Aplikasi Manajemen (Journal of Applied Management) recognizes that the authors have worked appropriately in preparing the manuscript and the peer-review procedure will be carried out by the Editor. However, for research purposes, it is also possible that published papers will be deleted or even withdrawn. This is not possible and can only be done in exceptional circumstances. Therefore, corrections, clarifications, retractions, and apologies, when necessary, will also be made with strict criteria to maintain confidence in the authority of the journal's electronic archive. Our dedication and strategy are to maintain the quality and completeness of relevant scientific documents in the collections of researchers and librarians.

Content Integrity and Maintenance

JAM: Jurnal Aplikasi Manajemen (Journal of Applied Management) recognizes the importance of the integrity and completeness of the scientific record for researchers and places great importance on maintaining trust in the authority of the journal's electronic archives. JAM: Jurnal Aplikasi Manajemen (Journal of Applied Management) will remind readers of the current status of the document and will also provide additional publication record information on the document. Providing up-to-date information is a promise made by the journal to continue publishing content and alerting readers to changes as they occur.


Article Retraction

JAM: Jurnal Aplikasi Manajemen (Journal of Applied Management) is committed to its role in maintaining the credibility of the scientific record, and therefore, on occasion, it is appropriate to remove a paper. A paper may be deleted if: (i) There are significant scientific errors that could invalidate the paper's conclusions, e.g., there is strong evidence that the findings are not credible, either due to fraud (e.g., data fabrication) or honest mistakes (e.g., miscalculations or experimental errors); (ii) The results have been previously published elsewhere without adequate cross-referencing, permission or justification; and (iii) There are ethical issues such as plagiarism (appropriation of another's ideas, procedures, findings or words without giving due credit, even those obtained through confidential analysis of another's paper) or unauthorized authorship.

To ensure that revocations are treated in accordance with best publishing practices and the COPE Retraction Guidelines, JAM: Jurnal Aplikasi Manajemen (Journal of Applied Management) adopts the following revocation process: (i) A paper that requires possible retraction should be notified to the journal editor; (ii) The journal editor should follow the step-by-step instructions in the COPE flowchart (including evaluating the paper's author response); (iii) Before making a decision, the editorial report should be forwarded to the Ethics Advisory Board, which will provide a forum for advice and recommendations on ethical issues. The purpose of this step is to ensure a consistent approach that is in line with best practice and credible; (iv) The final decision on withdrawal is then communicated to the author and, if necessary, to all other relevant bodies, such as the author's institution on occasion; and (v) The Retraction Statement is then posted online and released in the next available issue of the journal with the information "Retraction" before the title of the retracted paper.

Where a publisher holds the copyright to a paper, this does not automatically give the right to remove it after publication. The credibility of the published scientific record is very important, and the COPE Retraction Rules still apply in such situations.


Article Withdrawal

Authors are not allowed to withdraw the submitted manuscript as such withdrawal is a waste of valuable resources as editors and reviewers have spent a lot of time editing the submitted manuscript and the manuscript invested by the publisher. Authors must agree to the checklist provided before submitting the manuscript through the Open Journal System (OJS). The term "in Press" is typically used to refer to early versions of manuscript that are published before the final edition is available. These articles may occasionally contain errors or have been inadvertently submitted multiple times. On occasion, albeit with less frequency, the publications may manifest violations of professional ethical rules, such as engaging in multiple submissions, making false claims of authorship, committing plagiarism, engaging in fraudulent utilization of data, or similar transgressions. The manuscript that are in the process of being published but have not yet been formally published and do not have complete volume/issue/page information may be subject to withdrawal from JAM: Jurnal Aplikasi Manajemen (Journal of Applied Management) if they contain errors, are accidental duplicates of other published articles, or are found to violate our journal publishing ethics guidelines. Violations may include multiple submissions, false claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data, or similar offenses, as determined by the editors. The term "withdrawn" refers to removing the content of an article, including its HTML and PDF versions, and replacing them with a simple HTML page and PDF file that explicitly states the withdrawal of the article. This withdrawal follows the Editor Policy on Article in Press Withdrawal, and a hyperlink to the current policy document is provided.


Article Correction

JAM: Jurnal Aplikasi Manajemen (Journal of Applied Management) should consider corrections if a small portion of a reliable publication reports incorrect or demonstrably inaccurate data, especially if this is the product of an honest mistake and the list of authors or contributors is incorrect (e.g., a worthy author is omitted or someone who does not meet the author criteria is included).

Corrections to peer-reviewed material fall into one of three categories: erratum, corrigendum, and addendum. Publisher's correction (erratum): informs readers of a significant error made by the publisher/journal staff (usually a production error) that negatively affects the publication record, scientific credibility of the paper, or the reputation of the author or journal. Author's correction (corrigendum): to inform readers of a significant error made by the author that negatively affects the publication record, the scientific reputation of the manuscript, or the reputation of the Author or journal. Addendum: to provide information on the paper by the authors to clarify contradictions, expand on existing paper, or explain or update details in the main paper.

The decision "whether a correction should be made" is made by the editor of the journal, often with recommendations from members of the Reviewer or Editorial Board. The handling Editor will approach the Author of the manuscript in question with a request for clarification, but the final decision as to "whether a correction is required" and, if so, what form that correction should take rests with the Editor.


Article Removal

In very limited cases, it is possible to remove published papers from the website JAM: Jurnal Aplikasi Manajemen (Journal of Applied Management). This can only happen if the paper is clearly libelous or unlawful or deprives others of their rights, or the journal editors have practical reasons to accept it, it is the subject of a court order, or if the paper is acted upon, it could cause significant humanitarian harm. In such cases, the metadata (i.e., title and author information) of the paper will be retained, and the text will be replaced with a screen indicating that the paper has been removed for legal purposes.


Article Replacement

In situations where a paper may pose a significant humanitarian risk, the authors of the original paper may decide to retract the original paper with minor or major errors and replace it with a corrected edition. In such cases, the retraction procedure referred to above will be followed with a note of difference. The paper retraction notice will include a link to the revised and republished paper and its text history.
