Focus and Scope

IJID accepts submission of excellence and unpublished manuscripts from students, researchers, and engineers on the following issues:

  1. Software Engineering;
  2. Intelligent Systems;
  3. Networking;

relating to informatics for development. 

The aim of the journal is to disseminate original, scientific, theoretical, or applied research in the field of Informatics Development. Work must be of a quality and context that the Editorial Board thinks would be of interest to an international readership.

It is an international open-access journal published by Universitas Islam Negeri (UIN) Sunan Kalijaga Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Thus, we are promoting an interdisciplinary approach to work on these issues. Apart from the issues given above, the Editorial Board welcomes papers from other areas of computing and informatics which support the development of informatics.

Peer Review Process

Papers are blindly reviewed by experts and specialists in computer science, engineering, and technology relating to informatics on development. When a paper past an initial review, it will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. The reviewers use our review guidelines to judge your paper. We will let you know as soon as the reviews are done.

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. Thus, IJID is freely available without charge to the user or his/her institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from the publisher or author. It is because journal articles should be disseminated as widely as possible.

Publication Period

IJID is a biannual peer-reviewed journal published in June and December by the Faculty of Science and Technology, Universitas Islam Negeri (UIN) Sunan Kalijaga Yogyakarta-Indonesia.

Anti Plagiarism Policy

It is basically the author’s duty to only submit a manuscript that is free from plagiarism and academic malpractices. The editor, however, double-checks each article before its publication. The first step is to check plagiarism against as much as possible online databases by using a specific tool such as Turnitin. A maximum of 25% of similarities is allowed for all submitted papers. The second step is to assess comprehensively papers by editors. Passing these two steps, the paper will be distributed to two reviewers by first deleting author information from the paper. Otherwise, the paper will be sent back to the authors for correction and re-submission. After the authors upload the revised paper, the editor will check this paper's similarity again for assuring the maximum 25% is still maintained.

Publication Ethics

 2. Authorship and Contributorship

All submitted papers are based on a double-blind peer-review process. This process usually involves two reviewers who are experts in the area of the particular paper. The possible decisions of the review process are acceptance, acceptance with revisions, resubmit for review, or rejection.

 4. Conflicts of Interest/ Competing Interests

As explained by COPE, "a conflict of interests or competing interests is a situation in which a person or organization is involved in multiple interests, financial interest, or otherwise, one of which could possibly corrupt the motivation of the individual or organization. The presence of a COI is independent of the occurrence of impropriety." IJID will not involve in or accept any COI or CI in all its publication. Should they occur, IJID will retract the involved paper and put an embargo on suspects.

Reviewers’ Responsibilities

Reviewers of IJID should be responsible to comply with the above 10 policies from COPE. Factors that are considered in the review process are relevance, soundness, significance, originality, readability, and language.

Editors’ Responsibilities

Editors of IJID should be responsible to adhere to 10 policies from COPE. Editors should set up their decisions completely on the papers’ importance, originality, clarity and relevance to publication’s focus, and scope.

Article Withdrawal

An author is not allowed to withdraw submitted manuscripts, because the withdrawal is a waste of valuable resources that editors and referees spent a great deal of time processing submitted manuscripts, money, and works invested by the publisher. However, the authors could suggest the withdrawal if there is no updated progress review information after six months from our side.

Several cases regarding the article's withdrawal are as follows:

  • If the author still requests withdrawal of his/ her manuscript when the manuscript is still in the peer-reviewing process, the author will be punished with paying IDR 500.000,- per manuscript, as a withdrawal penalty to the publisher. 
  • On the other hand, if the manuscript has not been given yet to peer-reviewers, the author could withdraw his/ her manuscript by asking permission from the editor.
  • After the withdrawal of manuscript after the manuscript is accepted for publication, the author will be punished by paying IDR 1.000.000,- per manuscript. 

Withdrawal of manuscript is only allowed after withdrawal penalty has been fully paid to the Publisher. If the author doesn't agree to pay the penalty, the author and his/her affiliation will be blacklisted for publication in IJID.

However, it is unethical to withdraw a submitted manuscript from one journal if accepted by another journal. Thus the author should choose properly a journal where he/ she will submit the manuscript and at the same time, he/ she cannot submit the same manuscript to more than one journal. If the editor knows this issue, the author will be blacklisted for publication in IJID.


The papers published in IJID  will be considered to retract in the publication if:

  • They have clear evidence that the findings are unreliable, either as a result of misconduct (e.g., data fabrication) or honest error (e.g., miscalculation or experimental error)
  • The findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper crossreferencing, permission, or justification (i.e., cases of redundant publication)
  • It constitutes plagiarism
  • It reports unethical research

The mechanism of retraction follows the Retraction Guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), which can be accessed at https://doi.org/10.24318/cope.2019.1.4.
