Open Access Policy
This journal is an open-access journal that provides immediate, worldwide, barrier-free access to the full text of all published articles without charge readers or their institutions for access. Readers have the right to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of all articles. This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
The editor will run a plagiarism check using Crossref Similarity Check powered by iThenticate for the submitted articles before sending it to the reviewers. If an evaluates has an unfair number of similarities based on the result of the check, we will send back the article to the author to be revised.
Peer Review Process
Every submitted article will be independently reviewed. The decision for publication, amendment, or rejection follows upon reports/recommendations. After being reviewed, there will be three kinds of editor decisions based on reviewers’ recommendation: 1) Accept Submission with No Revision; 2) Accept Submission with Revisions, or 3) Decline/Reject Submission.
Article Processing Charges (APCs)
We need resources (editors, reviewers, web maintenance, galley editors, etc) to work better, effective, and efficient in managing this journal. In this case, we do not have funding support. For that reason, we will charge the authors for each accepted article. The APC is IDR 200.000 which includes 1) Publishing Fee (hardcopy not included); 2) Similarity Check; 3) DOI Content Registration; and 4) Web Maintenance. The payment method will be informed by the editors after the publication.
The papers published in JSGP will be considered for retraction from the publication if: (1) they have clear evidence that the findings are unreliable, either as a result of misconduct (e.g. data fabrication) or honest error (e.g. miscalculation or experimental error); (2) the findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper cross-referencing, permission, or justification (i.e. cases of redundant publication); (3) it constitutes plagiarism; and/or (4) it reports unethical research. The mechanism of retraction follows the Retraction Guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
