Publication Decisions

The Editor of Bisma: Journal of Community Service is responsible for deciding which articles submitted to the journal should be published. Validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers should always drive such decisions. Editors may be guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and limited by applicable legal requirements regarding defamation, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. Editors can consult with other editors or reviewers in making decisions.

Plagiarism Filtering

Basically it is the writer's duty to only submit manuscripts that are free from plagiarism and academic malpractice. However, editors double-check each article before publication. The first step is to check plagiarism against an offline database developed by Darunnajah University Jakarta, Indonesia and secondly, against as many online databases as possible.

Fair play

An editor at all times evaluates manuscripts based on their intellectual content without regard to the author's race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic origin, nationality, or political philosophy.


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

Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest

Unpublished material disclosed in a submitted manuscript may not be used in the editor's own research without written permission from the author.


Contribution to Editorial Decisions

Peer review helps editors in making editorial decisions and through editorial communication with authors can also help authors in improving the quality of papers.


Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that prompt review is not possible should notify the editor and seek permission from the review process.


Any manuscript received for review must be treated as a confidential document. The document may not be shown or discussed with others except with the permission of the editor.

Objectivity Standards

The review must be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. The referee must express his views clearly with supporting arguments.

Source Acknowledgment

Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the author. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument has been previously reported must be accompanied by appropriate citation. A reviewer should also draw the editor's attention if there are substantial similarities or overlaps between the manuscript under consideration and other published papers of which they are personally aware.

Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest

Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal gain. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts that have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships with any authors, companies, or institutions associated with the paper.

Review Process

Every manuscript submitted to Bisma: Journal of Community Service is reviewed independently by at least two reviewers in the form of a "double-blind review". The decision to publish, amend, or reject is based on their report/recommendation. In certain cases, the editor may send the article for review to another third reviewer before making a decision, if necessary.


Reporting Standards

Authors of original research reports must present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. The underlying data must be presented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain enough detail and references to allow others to replicate the work. False or intentionally inaccurate statements are unethical and unacceptable behavior.

Originality and Plagiarism

Authors must ensure that they have written an entirely original work, and that if the author has used the work and/or words of others that the work has been appropriately cited or cited.

Multiple, Excessive, or Simultaneous Publication

An author should generally not publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal simultaneously is unethical and unacceptable publishing behavior.

Source Acknowledgment

Proper recognition of the work of others should always be given. Authors should cite publications that were influential in determining the nature of the work reported.

Paper Writing

Authorship should be limited to those who have made significant contributions to the conception, design, conduct, or interpretation of the research being reported. All parties who have made significant contributions must be listed as co-authors. If others have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors. The corresponding author must ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included in the paper, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and approved its submission for publication.

Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest
