Alifmatika: Jurnal Pendidikan dan Pembelajaran Matematika is a journal that aims to be a leading peer-review platform and an authoritative source of information. We publish original research papers, review articles, and case studies focused on Mathematics Education and Mathematics Learning related topics that have not been published elsewhere in any language nor are they currently under review for publication anywhere. The following statements clarify the ethical behavior of all parties involved in the publishing of articles in this journal, including authors, editors, and reviewers.
Duties of Authors:
Reporting Standard: Authors should present an accurate report of the original research conducted as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Researchers must present their results honestly and without falsifying, falsifying, or improper data manipulation. A manuscript must contain sufficient detail and references to allow others to replicate the work. False or intentionally inaccurate statements are unethical and unacceptable behavior. Manuscripts should follow the journal submission guidelines.
Originality and Plagiarism: Authors must ensure that the written manuscripts are completely original works. The manuscript may not be submitted to other journals simultaneously before there is a decision from the editor (accepted or rejected). Relevant previous works and publications, whether by other researchers or those of the author, must be properly acknowledged and referenced. The primary literature should be cited whenever possible. Original and complete words taken directly from publications by other researchers must appear in quotation marks with the appropriate citation.
Multiple, Redundant, or Concurrent Publication: In general, authors may not submit the same manuscript to more than one journal simultaneously. It is also hoped that the authors will not publish redundant manuscripts or manuscripts describing the same research in more than one journal. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal simultaneously is unethical and unacceptable publishing behavior. Publications arising from a research project should be clearly identified and the main publication cited.
Source acknowledgment: Authors should acknowledge all sources of data used in the study and cite publications that were influential in determining the nature of the work reported. True recognition of the work of others must always be given.
Papers Authorship: The authorship of the research publications should accurately reflect the individual contributions to the work and reporting. The authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, implementation, or interpretation of the reported research. Others who have made significant contributions must be listed as co-authors. In cases where the main contributors are listed as authors whereas those who made a less substantial, or purely technical, contribution to the research or publication are listed in the acknowledgment section. The author also ensures that all authors have viewed and approved the submitted version of the manuscript and inclusion of their names as co-authors.
Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest: All authors should clearly disclose in their manuscripts any financial or other substantive conflicts of interest that may be interpreted to influence the results or interpretation of their text. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.
Fundamental Errors in published scientific work: If the author finds errors or significant inaccuracies in the manuscript that has been submitted, the author must immediately notify the journal editor or publisher and work with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
Duties of Editors:
Publication Decision: Based on the review report from the reviewer, the editorial board can accept, reject, or request modification of the manuscript. Editors can be guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and limited by the legal requirements that will apply regarding defamation, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. The editor may confer with the editorial board or other reviewers in making the final decision. The journal editorial team must be responsible for everything they publish, must have proper procedures, and policies to ensure the quality of the manuscripts they publish in this journal.
Review of Manuscripts: Editors must ensure that each manuscript has been subject to an initial evaluation by the editorial board for the originality of the manuscript. Editors must organize and use peer reviews fairly and wisely. Editors should describe their peer review process in information for authors and also indicate which parts of the journal are peer-reviewed.
Duties of Reviewers:
Contribution to editorial decisions: Peer reviews assist editors in making editorial decisions and through the editorial communication with authors can also assist authors in improving papers. Peer study is an essential component of formal scientific communication and is at the heart of the scientific method.
Promptness: Selected referees who feel ineligible to review the research reported in a manuscript or know that an immediate review is not possible should notify the editor and excuse himself from the review process.
Confidentiality: Any manuscript received for review must be treated as confidential. They may not be shown or discussed with others except with the permission of the editor.
Standard of objectivity: Reviews should be conducted objectively. The author's criticism is inappropriate. Referees must express their views clearly with supporting arguments.
Source acknowledgment: Reviewers must identify relevant published works that have not been cited by the authors. Any previously reported statements of observations, derivations, or arguments must be accompanied by a relevant quote. Should the audience also call the editor's attention if there is a substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and other published papers of which they have personal knowledge.
Disclosure and conflicts of interest: Unpublished material disclosed in the submitted manuscript may not be used in the reviewer's research without the written permission of the authors. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review should be kept confidential and not used for personal gain. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts that have a conflict of interest due to competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
