Publishing Ethics Guidelines
The publication of articles in Najwa is an important building block in the development of a coherent knowledge network. This is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. The articles reviewed support and contain the scientific method. Therefore, it is important to agree on the standards of ethical behavior that are expected for all parties involved in publishing, namely: authors, journal editors, review partners, publishers, and the public.
The Institute for Research and Community Service (LPPM) of the State Islamic Institute (IAIN) Kediri is responsible for seriously overseeing all stages of publishing and acknowledging ethical and other responsibilities. The institution is not only committed to ensuring that reprint advertising and other commercial income does not have an impact or influence on editorial decisions, it is also committed to assisting communication with other journal managers and/or publishers if deemed useful and necessary.
Najwa editors are responsible for deciding which of the submitted articles should be published. The validation of the work and its importance to researchers and readers should always drive that decision. Editors may be guided by the discretion of the journal's editorial board and limited by legal requirements as they must be enforced regarding defamation, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. The editor may consult with other editors or the review team in making this decision.
Editors always judge manuscripts based on their intellectual content without distinction of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, nationality or political philosophy of the authors.
