The author is not allowed to withdraw submitted manuscript because the withdrawal is a waste of valuable resources that editors and referees spent a great deal of time processing submitted manuscript, and works invested by the Publisher. However, the authors could suggest the withdrawal if there is no updated progress review information after six months from our side.
- Manuscript in Review Process. If the author still requests withdrawal of his/her manuscript when the manuscript is still in the peer-reviewing process, the author will be punished with paying Rp. 300.000 per paper as a withdrawal penalty to the Publisher. However, it is unethical to withdraw a submitted manuscript from one journal if accepted by another journal.
- Accepted Manuscript for publication. The withdrawal of the accepted manuscript for publication will be punished by paying Rp. 500.000 per manuscript. Withdrawal of the manuscript is only allowed after the penalty has been fully paid to the Publisher. If the author(s) does not agree with the penalty, the author and his/her affiliation will be blacklisted for publication in this journal. Even his/her previously published articles will be removed from our online system.
