          The ESEC Environmental Science and Engineering Conference National Seminar Proceedings is dedicated to keeping the highest standards of publication ethics and will takes all necessary steps to prevent any publication malpractices. All authors submitting original articles to the proceeding attest that the works submitted represent their contributions and have not been copied or plagiarized in whole or in part from other publications.

          Anti-plagiarism software will be used to check all submitted papers. Plagiarism detected works will be removed from consideration for publication. Authors who have been found guilty of plagiarism will be prohibited from publishing in ESEC.

          The authors acknowledge that they have disclosed all and any actual or potential conflicts of interest with their work or partial benefits associated with it. Similarly, the proceeding is committed to conducting objective and fair double-blind peer assessment of all works submitted for publication, as well as avoiding any actual or prospective conflicts of interest between editorial and review personnel and the reviewed material. Any violations from the above-described norms should be reported immediately to the Editors-in-Chief, who are unwaveringly dedicated to quickly resolving any such issues. This statement emphasizes how all parties engaged in the act of publishing an article in our journals, including authors, editors, peer-reviewers, and the publisher, should behave ethically. COPE's Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors provide the basis for this statement.


Ethical Guideline for Journal Publication

The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journals is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the authors' and institutions' ability to produce high-quality content. The scientific method is supported and embodied by peer-reviewed articles. As a result, it's important to agree on ethical norms for all parties engaged in the publishing process, including authors, journal editors, peer reviewers, the publisher, and the society.

As the publisher of this journal, Environmental Engineering UPN “Veteran” Jawa Timur and ESEC Environmental Science and Engineering Conference National Seminar Proceedings takes its duties over all stages of publication very seriously, and we understand our ethical and other responsibilities. We are dedicated to ensuring that advertising, reprints, and other commercial money have no bearing on editorial decisions. In addition, if it is useful and required, the Editorial Board will assist in discussions with other journals and/or publishers.


Publication decisions

The editors are in charge of determining which of the submitted papers should be published in the journal. Such decisions must always be driven by the validation of the work in question and its value to academics and readers. The editors may be led by the editorial board's policies and bound by any applicable legal requirements for libel, copyright infringement, and plagiarism at the time. In reaching this decision, the editors may consult with other editors or reviewers.


Fair play

An editor can review articles at any time for their intellectual value, regardless of the authors' color, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic background, citizenship, or political ideology.


The editor and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate.


Disclosure and conflicts of interest

Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in an editor's own research without the express written consent of the author.

  1. Duties of Authors
  2. Reporting standards

Authors of original research papers should include a detailed overview of the work done as well as an objective assessment of its relevance. The article should appropriately portray the underlying data. A paper should include enough information and references to allow others to replicate the work. False or willfully inaccurate statements are unethical and must be avoided at all costs.

  1. Data Access and Retention

Authors are asked to provide raw data in conjunction with a paper for editorial review, and should be willing to provide public access to such data (in accordance with the ALPSP-STM Statement on Data and Databases), if possible, and should in any case be willing to provide public access to such data for a reasonable time after publication.

  1. Plagiarism and Originality

The authors should make sure that their works are entirely original, and that if they have used the work and/or words of others, they have properly cited or quoted them.

  1. Multiple, Redundant or Concurrent Publication

In general, an author should not submit articles to more than one journal or primary publication reporting essentially the same study. Submitting the same paper to multiple journals at the same time is unethical and improper publication behavior.

  1. Acknowledgement of Sources

It is always necessary to give proper credit to others' efforts. Authors should reference publications that influenced the nature of the work they are reporting.

  1. The Paper's Authorship

Only individuals who made a major contribution to the study's conception, design, implementation, or interpretation should be listed as authors. Co-authors should include everyone who has made a substantial contribution. Other contributors should be acknowledged or identified as contributors if they have contributed to specific substantial areas of the research effort. The corresponding author should make sure that the work has all suitable co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper before submitting it for publication.

  1. Hazards and Human or Animal Subjects

If the work entails the use of chemicals, processes, or equipment that pose any unusual risks, the author must make this apparent in the manuscript.

  1. Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest

Any financial or other substantial conflict of interest that could be regarded as influencing the results or interpretation of their manuscript should be disclosed by all authors in their manuscript. All sources of funding for the project should be made public.

  1. Fundamental errors in published works

When an author discovers a serious error or inaccuracy in his or her own published work, it is the author's responsibility to contact the journal editor or publisher as soon as possible and to collaborate with the editor in retracting or correcting the piece.
