Retraction and Withdrawal of Manuscript


The papers published in the Jurnal Elemen will be considered retractions in 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 and permission or justification (i.e., cases of redundant publication).
  3. It constitutes plagiarism.
  4. It reports unethical research.

The mechanism of retraction follows the Retraction Guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), which can be accessed at



The author is not allowed to withdraw submitted manuscripts because the withdrawal is a waste of valuable resources. Editors and referees spent a great deal of time processing submitted manuscripts and works invested by the publisher.

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 by paying 2,500,000.00 (IDR) or 160 (USD) per manuscript, as a withdrawal penalty to the publisher. However, it is unethical to withdraw a submitted manuscript from one journal if it is accepted by another journal.

Withdrawal of the manuscript: after the manuscript is accepted for publication, the author will be punished by paying 4,000,000.00 (IDR) or 250 (USD) per manuscript. Withdrawal of the manuscript is only allowed after the publisher fully pays the withdrawal penalty. If the author doesn't agree to pay 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.
