Withdrawal of Manuscripts

The 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 manuscript, and works invested by the publisher. However, it is unethical to withdraw a submitted manuscript from one journal if accepted by another journal.

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 some amount per manuscript, as withdrawal penalty to the publisher. However, it is unethical to withdraw a submitted manuscript from one journal if accepted by another journal.

Email for requesting of withdrawal: biste@ee.uad.ac.id or bisteuad@gmail.com

 

Plagiarsm

Before sending the manuscript to the reviewer, the manuscript will be checked for similarity and plagiarism first. The plagiarism limit is 20 per cent. If the value of plagiarism exceeds the value of 20 per cent (no more than 30 per cent) then the author will be informed to make a revision to reduce the level of similarity. If it exceeds the value of 30 per cent then nothing is accepted.
