The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor). Articles published in conferences will need to be altered prior to submission with at least 20% differences to the original paper, and pass our similarity check.
Authors are bound to our Plagiarism Policy, thus careful considerations should be done prior to submitting the article. In any circumstances that JUDIKA found article has or being published elsewhere which is identical to the one published in JUDIKA, we will retract the article following COPE's guidelines on retracting articles and notify the author.
The submission file is in Document file format (doc, docx. rtf, or odt), following the author guidelines and article template. Please make sure that you use Mendeley to help in referencing. A guide to using Mendeley as a reference manager is provided.
