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.



Jurnal Studi Ilmu-ilmu al-Qur'an dan Hadis follows the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) guidelines which state that, in order to qualify for authorship of a manuscript, the following criteria should be observed:

  • Substantial contributions to the conception or design of the work; or the acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data for the work; and
  • Drafting the work or revising it critically for important intellectual content; and
  • Final approval of the version to be published; and
  • Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.

Those who contributed to the work but do not qualify for authorship should be listed in the acknowledgments. More detailed guidance on authorship is given by the International Council of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE).
Any change to the author list should be approved by all authors including any who have been removed from the list. The corresponding author should act as a point of contact between the editor and the other authors and should keep co-authors informed and involve them in major decisions about the publication. We reserve the right to request confirmation that all authors meet the authorship conditions.


Conflict of Interests

According to The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors, “Authors should avoid entering into agreements with study sponsors, both for-profit and non-profit, that interfere with authors’ access to all of the study’s data or that interfere with their ability to analyze and interpret the data and to prepare and publish manuscripts independently when and where they choose.”

All authors must disclose all relationships or interests that could inappropriately influence or bias their work. Examples of potential conflicts of interest include but are not limited to financial interests (such as membership, employment, consultancies, stocks/shares ownership, honoraria, grants or other funding, paid expert testimonies and patent-licensing arrangements) and non-financial interests (such as personal or professional relationships, affiliations, personal beliefs).

Authors can disclose potential conflicts of interest via the online submission system during the submission process. Declarations regarding conflicts of interest can also be collected via the Jurnal Studi Ilmu-ilmu al-Qur'an dan Hadis disclosure form. The corresponding author must include a summary statement in the manuscript in a separate section “Conflicts of Interest” placed just before the reference list. The statement should reflect all the collected potential conflict of interest disclosures in the form.

See below for examples of disclosures:

Conflicts of Interest: Author A has received research grants from Company A. Author B has received a speaker honorarium from Company X and owns stocks in Company Y. Author C has been involved as a consultant and expert witness in Company Z. Author D is the inventor of patent X.

If no conflicts exist, the authors should state:

Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflicts of interest.


Correcting the Record

Jurnal Studi Ilmu-ilmu Al-Qur’an dan Hadis is committed to preserving the historical accuracy of all its publications. In principle, no published work should be altered or removed from the print or electronic Jurnal Studi Ilmu-ilmu Al-Qur’an dan Hadis platforms after it has been published.

Jurnal Studi Ilmu-ilmu Al-Qur’an dan Hadis considers the online version of an article/manuscript/work published as the final and complete version. Even though it may be possible to correct this version, the policy is not to do so, except in very specific circumstances. The editors will make the final decision whether to correct a published work.

Authors of published works must inform Jurnal Studi Ilmu-ilmu Al-Qur’an dan Hadis promptly if they become aware of work needing correcting. Any correction requires the consent of all co-authors, so time is saved if requests for corrections are accompanied by a signed agreement by all authors. In cases where one or some authors do not agree with the correction statement, the coordinating author must provide the correspondence to and from the dissenting author(s).

1. Errata

An erratum is a correction of an important error (one that affects the publication record, the scientific integrity of the work, or the reputation of the authors or of the work) that has been introduced during the production of the work, including errors of omission such as failure to make factual proof corrections requested by authors within the deadline provided by Jurnal Studi Ilmu-ilmu Al-Qur’an dan Hadis and within the Jurnal Studi Ilmu-ilmu Al-Qur’an dan Hadis policy.

Errata for typing or grammatical errors will not be published, except where an apparently simple error is significant (for example, an incorrect unit). A significant error in a figure or table is corrected by publication of a new corrected figure or table as an erratum only if the editor considers this necessary for a reader to understand it.

2. Corrigenda

A corrigendum is a correction of an important error made by the authors of the work. Corrigenda are judged on their relevance to readers and their importance for the published record. Corrigenda are published after discussion among the editors, often with the help of peer reviewers.

All co-authors must sign an agreed wording for the corrigendum. Corrigenda submitted by the original authors are published if the scientific accuracy or reproducibility of the original work is compromised; occasionally, on an investigation by the editors, these may be published as retractions.

In cases where some co-authors decline to sign a corrigendum or retraction Jurnal Studi Ilmu-ilmu Al-Qur’an dan Hadis, in consultation with the editors, reserves the right to publish it with the dissenting author(s) identified. Jurnal Studi Ilmu-ilmu Al-Qur’an dan Hadis may publish a corrigendum if there is an error in the published author list, but not for overlooked acknowledgements.

3. Addenda

An addendum is a notification of a peer-reviewed addition of information to work (for example, in response to a reader’s request for clarification). Addenda should not contradict the original publication, but if the author inadvertently omitted significant information available at the time, this material can be published as an addendum after peer review and after discussion among the editors.

Addenda are published rarely and only when the editors decide that the addendum is crucial to the readers’ understanding of a significant part of the published contribution.

4. Retractions

A retraction may be made with respect to invalid results when the conclusions of work are seriously undermined as a result of honest miscalculation or error.

A retraction may also be made as a sanction applied to scientific misconduct, such as a serious infringement of publishing ethics or a breach of author warranties, which can include breaches of third-party copyright. Infringements of publication ethics may include multiple submissions, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, and fraudulent use of data.

All co-authors will be asked to agree to a retraction. In cases where some co-authors decline to sign a retraction, Jurnal Studi Ilmu-ilmu Al-Qur’an dan Hadis in consultation with the editors reserves the right to publish the retraction with reference to the dissension among authors.

Retracted work will be clearly indicated and bear a ‘retracted’ watermark throughout. However, in rare circumstances, it may be necessary to remove work completely from the online location. This will occur only where the published work infringes on others’ legal rights or is clearly defamatory, or where the work is (or clearly maybe) the subject of a court order, or where the work’s information might pose a serious health risk. In these circumstances, while some of the metadata will be retained online, the text will be replaced with a notice that the content has been removed for valid reasons.

5. Expression of concern

If conclusive evidence about the reliability or integrity of a published work cannot be obtained, e.g. if authors produce conflicting accounts of the case, or authors’ institutions refuse to investigate alleged misconduct or to release the findings of such investigations, or if investigations appear not to have been carried out fairly or are taking an unreasonably long time to reach a conclusion, then the editor may issue an expression of concern rather than retracting the publication immediately. Such expressions of concern, like retraction notices, shall be clearly linked to the original publication, i.e. in electronic databases and by including the author and title of the original publication as a heading, and shall state the reasons for the concern. If more conclusive evidence about the publication’s reliability becomes available later, the expression of concern shall be replaced by a notice of retraction (if the article is shown to be unreliable) or by an exonerating statement linked to the expression of concern (if the article is shown to be reliable and the author is exonerated).

6. Publishing corrections

Corrections will be done in the following manner:

  • The title will include the words ‘Erratum’, ‘Corrigendum’, Addendum’, ‘Retraction’, or ‘Expression of concern’, as applicable. 
  • It will be published as a separate document, with a unique DOI, and be included in the work’s table of contents. 
  • It will cite the original publication. 
  • It will enable the reader to identify and understand the correction in the context of the errors made, or explain why the work is being corrected, or explain the editor’s concerns about the contents of the work. 
  • It will be linked electronically with the original electronic publication, wherever possible. 
  • It will be in a form that enables indexing and abstracting services to identify and link corrections to their original publications. 

7. CrossMark®

CrossMark is a multi-publisher initiative that provides a standard way for readers to locate the authoritative version of a published work. It is Jurnal Studi Ilmu-ilmu Al-Qur’an dan Hadis’s highest priority to maintain trust in the authority of its electronic archive, recognizing the importance of the integrity and completeness of the scholarly record to researchers and librarians.
