Publication Ethics


Samakia: Jurnal Ilmu Perikanan is very committed to upholding the ethical standards of publications and taking all actions for every writer who commits publication malpractice. All authors who submit their work to Samakia for publication as original articles prove that the work submitted represents the author's contribution and has not been copied or copied in whole or in part from another work.

The authors acknowledge that they have revealed all and any actual or potential conflicts of interest with their work or the partial benefits associated with it. In the same way, journals commit to conducting objective and fair peer reviews of works submitted for publication and to prevent actual or potential conflicts of interest between editorial and review personnel and the material being reviewed. Any deviation from the rules defined above must be reported directly to the Editor in Chief who is firmly committed to providing quick resolution for all types of such problems.

All submitted works will be checked by anti-plagiarism software. Plagiarism detected will be prohibited for further publication procedures. Authors who have committed to plagiarizing and violating other ethnic publications will be banned from publishing in Samakia.

We are committed to ensuring that advertisements, reprints, or other commercial revenues do not impact or influence editorial decisions. Additionally, the Ibrahimy University Faculty of Science and Technology and the Editorial Board will assist in communication with other journals and/or publishers where this is useful and necessary. This statement is based on COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editor.


Reporting Standards

The author of the original research report must present an accurate report of the work carried out as well as an objective discussion of its significance. The underlying data must be represented accurately in the paper. A paper must contain enough detail and references to allow others to replicate the work.

Data access and storage

Authors can be asked to provide raw data in connection with papers for editorial review and must be prepared to provide public access to such data if it can be done, and in any case, must be prepared to store such data for a reasonable time. after publication.

Originality and plagiarism

Writers must ensure that they have written fully the original work, and if the author has used the work and / or words of others that this has been quoted or quoted correctly. Plagiarism takes many forms, from 'graduating' other people's papers as authors' papers, to copying or paraphrasing important parts of other papers (without attribution), to claiming the results of research done by others. Plagiarism in all its forms is an unethical and unacceptable publishing behavior.

Multiple, redundant, or concurrent publications

An author may not, in general, publish manuscripts that describe the same research in more than one journal or major publication. Submitting the same text to more than one journal simultaneously is unethical and unacceptable publishing behavior. In general, authors may not submit to other journals previously published papers for consideration. The publication of several types of articles (eg guidelines, translations) in more than one journal can sometimes be justified, provided certain requirements are met. The authors and editors of the relevant journals must agree to the secondary publication, which must reflect the same data and interpretation of the main document. Primary references should be cited in secondary publications.

Source recognition

Proper recognition of the work of others must always be given. Authors must cite influential publications in determining the nature of the work reported. Information obtained personally, such as in conversations, correspondence, or discussions with third parties, may not be used or reported without written permission from the source. Information obtained in the course of confidential services, such as reference manuscripts or grant applications, may not be used without written permission from the authors of works involved in this service.

Authorship of the paper

Authorship must be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, implementation, or interpretation of the research reported. Everyone who has made a significant contribution must be registered as a co-author (so that means that the script at least has a co-author and co-author). Where others have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they must be recognized or registered as contributors. The appropriate author must ensure that all suitable joint authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included on the paper and that all joint authors have seen and agreed to the final version of the paper and have approved their submission for publication.

Disclosure and conflict of interest

All authors must disclose in their manuscripts any conflicts of financial or substantive interests that might be interpreted to affect the results or interpretation of their manuscripts. All sources of financial support for the project must be disclosed. Examples of potential conflicts of interest that must be disclosed include employment, consultation, share ownership, honorarium, paid expert testimony, patent application/registration, and other grants or funding. Potential conflicts of interest must be disclosed as early as possible.

Fundamental errors in published works

When a writer discovers significant errors or inaccuracies in his self-published work, the author must immediately notify the journal editor or publisher and work with the editor to retract or correct the paper. If the editor or publisher knows from a third party that a published work contains significant errors, the author must immediately retract or correct the paper or provide evidence to the editor about the truth of the original paper.

Dangers and Subjects of Humans or Animals

If the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment that have unusual hazards inherent in their use, the author must identify this in the text.


Decision of publication

Editor Samakia: A peer-reviewed journal of Fisheries is responsible for deciding which articles to submit to journals should be published. The validation of the work in question and its importance for researchers and readers must always drive the decision. Editors can be guided by journal editorial board policies and are limited by applicable legal requirements relating to defamation, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. The editor can negotiate with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.

Fair Play

Editors must evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, sex, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the author.


Any editor and editorial staff may not disclose any information about the manuscript sent to anyone other than the author, reviewers, prospective reviewers, other editorial advisers, and publishers, as appropriate.

Disclosure and conflict of interest

Unpublished material that is disclosed in the text submitted may not be used in the research of the editor himself without the written consent of the author.

Involvement and cooperation in investigations

An editor must take reasonably responsive steps when an ethical complaint has been filed regarding the manuscript sent or published paper, together with the publisher (or the public). These steps generally include contacting the author of the manuscript or paper and giving appropriate consideration to each complaint or claim made, but may also include further communication with the relevant research institutions and bodies, and if the complaint is upheld, the issuance of a correction, revocation, disclosure of concern, or other records, which may be relevant. Every act of reported unethical publishing behavior must be seen, even if it was discovered years after publication.


Contribution to editorial decisions

Peer review helps the editor in making editorial decisions and through the editorial communication with the author can also help the writer improve the paper.


Any selected referee who feels ineligible to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that a quick review is not possible must inform the editor and excuse himself from the review process.


Every text received for review must be treated as a confidential document. They may not be shown or discussed with others except as authorized by the editor.

Standards of objectivity

Reviews must be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the writer is inappropriate. Referees must express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

Acknowledgment of sources

The reviewer must identify the relevant published work that has not been cited by the author. Any statement that observations, derivations, or arguments have been reported before must be accompanied by relevant citations. The reviewer must also call the editor's attention to the substantial similarities or overlaps between the manuscripts being considered and other published papers which have personal knowledge.

Disclosure and conflict of interest

Unpublished material disclosed in the text submitted may not be used in the reviewers' research without the written consent of the author. Information or special ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal gain. Reviewers may not consider texts where they have a conflict of interest arising from competition, collaboration, or other relationships or connections with the authors, companies or institutions connected with the paper.

Review Process

Each text submitted to Samakia: Journal of Fisheries Science is independently reviewed by at least two reviewers. Decisions for publication, amendments or rejection are based on their reports/recommendations. In certain cases, editors can send articles for review to others, a third reviewer before making a decision, if necessary.
