The committees address several imperative guidelines as part of Ethical guideline that consists of General Role Ethics Guideline and Manuscript Writing Ethics Guideline. The General Role Ethics Guideline encompasses Conference Chairman Ethics, Scientific Review Ethics, Author Ethics, and Journal Editor Ethics. Meanwhile, the Manuscript Writing Ethic Guideline includes Ethics of Citation, Ethics of Data Report, Ethics in the Publishing Process, and Avoidance of Plagiarism and Redundancy of Research.
