Authorship and contributorship

We consider the author (co-author) of an article explains for transparency around who contributed to the work and in what capacity as described in the COPE guidelines. Authorship should be determined by how genuinely they contribute to each article. The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) has recommended that authorship credit should be based on substantial contributions to conception and design, acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data; drafting the manuscript or critically revising it, and ultimate approval of the version to be published. Interpretation of the respective contributions of individual authors is not possible from the order of authorship. The corresponding author should certify that all authors fulfill standards for authorship and prepare a brief written description of their contribution to the manuscript. This information provides an appropriate context for the readers of the articles to be able to interpret the authors’ roles correctly. The Authorship and Contributorship are explained here.

Ethical oversight

The policy of the journals, issued by Jurnal Studi Ilmu-ilmu al-Qur'an dan Hadis, concerning the oversight on how the ethical principles are observed is built on mutual trust of the publication process participants and hope for compulsory observance of all the publication ethics principles.

We focus on the СОРE definition of Ethical oversight, namely “Ethical oversight should include, but is not limited to, policies on consent to publication, publication on vulnerable populations, ethical conduct of research using animals, ethical conduct of research using human subjects, handling confidential data and of business/marketing practices”. Based on this definition, the editorial staff of the journals works under the issue of observing the ethical principles.

The journals will be bound to consider the appeals from the Ethics and Oversight Committee for professional and scientific activity concerning the non-observance of the ethical principles by our authors. We are also ready to consider other appeals in case they are not anonymous and substantiated.

Allegations of Research Misconduct

Research misconduct means fabrication, falsification, citation manipulation, or plagiarism in producing, performing, or reviewing research and writing article by author(s), or in reporting research results. When author(s) are found to have been involved with research misconduct or other serious irregularities involving articles that have been published in Jurnal Studi Ilmu-ilmu al-Qur'an dan Hadis, Editors have a responsibility to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the scientific record.

In cases of suspected misconduct, the Editors and Editorial Board will use the best practices of COPE to assist them to resolve the complaint and address the misconduct fairly. This will include an investigation of the allegation by the Editors. A submitted manuscript that is found to contain such misconduct will be rejected. In cases where a published paper is found to contain such misconduct, a retraction can be published and will be linked to the original article.

The first step involves determining the validity of the allegation and an assessment of whether the allegation is consistent with the definition of research misconduct. This initial step also involves determining whether the individuals alleging misconduct have relevant conflicts of interest.

If scientific misconduct or the presence of other substantial research irregularities is a possibility, the allegations are shared with the corresponding author, who, on behalf of all of the coauthors, is requested to provide a detailed response. After the response is received and evaluated, additional review and involvement of experts (such as statistical reviewers) may be obtained. For cases in which it is unlikely that misconduct has occurred, clarifications, additional analyses, or both, published as letters to the editor, and often including a correction notice and correction to the published article are sufficient.
Institutions are expected to conduct an appropriate and thorough investigation of allegations of scientific misconduct. Ultimately, author(s), journal, and institutions have an important obligation to ensure the accuracy of the scientific record. By responding appropriately to concerns about scientific misconduct, and taking necessary actions based on evaluation of these concerns, such as corrections, retractions with replacement, and retractions, Jurnal Studi Ilmu-ilmu al-Qur'an dan Hadis will continue to fulfill the responsibilities of ensuring the validity and integrity of the scientific record.

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.
