Open Access Policy
This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
This journal is an immediate open access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to users or / institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to full text articles in this journal without asking prior permission from the publisher or author.
Authors who publish with this journal agree to the following terms:
Authors retain copyright without restrictions and grant the journal right of first publication with the work simultaneously licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0) .
Authors are able to enter into separate, additional contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the journal's published version of the work (e.g., post it to an institutional repository or publish it in a book), with an acknowledgement of its initial publication in this journal.
Authors are permitted and encouraged to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their website) prior to and during the submission process, as it can lead to productive exchanges, as well as earlier and greater citation of published work.
All work in the manuscript should be free of any plagiarism, falsification, fabrications, or omission of significant material.
Authors are expected to explicitly cite others' work and ideas, even if the work or ideas are not quoted verbatim or paraphrased. This standard applies whether the previous work is published, unpublished, or electronically available. Failure to properly cite the work of others may constitute plagiarism. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.
Manuscripts submitted to IJMC will be automatically screened for plagiarism using turnitin as plargiarism checkers tool. Papers found to contain a significant amount of plagiarism (including self-plagiarism) will be automatically rejected.
IJMC, as a respected international journal, wants to ensure that all authors are careful and comply with international standards for academic integrity, particularly on the issue of plagiarism.
Plagiarism occurs when an author takes ideas, information, or words from another source without proper credit to the source. Even when it occurs unintentionally, plagiarism is still a serious academic violation, and unacceptable in international academic publications.
When the author learns specific information (a name, date, place, statistical number, or other detailed information) from a specific source, a citation is required. (This is only forgiven in cases of general knowledge, where the data is readily available in more than five sources or is common knowledge, e.g., the fact that Indonesia is the most populous Muslim country in the world.)
When the author takes an idea from another author, a citation is required—even if the author then develops the idea further. This might be an idea about how to interpret the data, either what methodology to use or what conclusion to draw. It might be an idea about broad developments in a field or general information. Regardless of the idea, authors should cite their sources. In cases where the author develops the idea further, it is still necessary to cite the original source of the idea, and then in a subsequent sentence the author can explain her or his more developed idea.
When the author takes words from another author, a citation and quotation marks are required. Whenever four or more consecutive words are identical to a source that the author has read, the author must use quotation marks to denote the use of another author’s original words; just a citation is no longer enough.
IJMC takes academic integrity very seriously, and the editors reserve the right to withdraw acceptance from a paper found to violate any of the standards set out above. For further information, potential authors can contact the editorial office.
The editor-in-chief of Indonesian Journal of Materials Chemistry is responsible for determining the manuscripts that have been submitted to be peer reviewed and if the manuscript is meeting the editorial policies and journal's requirement it will be published. Validation of research or literature review and the importance of the manuscript for scientific development, subsequent researchers as well as readers of Indonesian Journal of Materials Chemistry has always been a major consideration in decision making. Editors of Indonesian Journal of Materials Chemistry may refer to the Board of Editors directives and always refer to the rules and regulations that exist in the Republic of Indonesia regarding copyright and plagiarism. Chairman of the board of editors may authorize other members of the editor for decision-making by observing the peer review results.
Publication Fee (Author Fees)
Indonesian Journal of Materials Chemistry does not charge APCs, submission charges, or another fee. All processes of article publication are free of charge.
All article published in Indonesian Journal of Materials Chemistry are Open Access. Open Access Publishing implies that all readers, anywhere in the world, are allowed unrestricted access to full text of article, immediately on publication in Indonesian Journal of Materials Chemistry. No payment is collected from the readers for accessing and using the articles.
This journal utilizes The PKP Preservation Network (PN) and LOCKSS system with A CLOCKSS license to create a distributed archiving system among participating libraries and permits those libraries to create permanent archives of the journal for purposes of preservation and restoration.
PKP has developed the PKP Preservation Network (PKP PN) to digitally preserve OJS journals. The LOCKSS program offers decentralized and distributed preservation, seamless perpetual access, and preservation of the authentic original version of the content. The PKP PN ensures that journals that are not part of any other digital preservation service (such as CLOCKSS or Portico) can be preserved for long-term access. For additional details about the PKP PN, Please kindly see the high-level overview (an early discussion document).
The PKP PN is a dark archive. End users will not have access to the preserved content until after a “trigger event.” After a trigger event, PKP staff will approve the importing of the preserved content into one or more OJS instances hosted by PKP member institutions. Once loaded into these host OJS instances, the content will be openly accessible.
