Sumbula: The Journal of Religious, Social and Cultural Studies (P-ISSN 2528-2867; E-ISSN 2548-3900) is a journal published by the Faculty of Islamic Studies Darul 'Ulum Jombang University of East Java. This is the Peer Review Process open access journal in the field of Religious, Social and Cultural Affairs. Publishing articles in the Journal of Sumbula is an important building block in the development of a respected network of knowledge. This is a direct reflection of the quality of the author's work and the institutions that support it. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody scientific methods. It is important to agree on the expected ethical standards of conduct for all parties involved in publishing actions: authors, journal editors, peer reviewers, and publishers.
Reporting Standards
The author must present original manuscripts, not published in any form, and not submit the same articles to other journals until the publisher provides answers on the feasibility of the manuscript. The author must provide accurate and accountable research data. The author should quote the source correctly with regard to the manuscript content either in the form of a written publication or a personal interview.

Originality and plagiarism
Authors must ensure that they have written the original work completely, and if the author has used the work and / or the words of others that have been quoted or quoted appropriately.

Publication Multiple, Redundant, or Concurrent
A writer should not generally publish a manuscript that essentially describes the same research in more than one major journal or publication. Sending the same script to more than one journal simultaneously is unethical and unacceptable publishing behavior.

Writing Papers
Authorship should be limited to those who have contributed significantly to the conception, design, implementation, or interpretation of reported research. Anyone who has made a significant contribution should be registered as a coauthor. If there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they must be recognized or registered as contributors. The appropriate author must ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate coauthors are included on paper, and that all co-authors have reviewed and approved the final version of the paper and have approved the submission for publication.

Data Access and Retention
Authors may be required to provide raw data in connection with papers for editorial reviews, and must be prepared to keep the data within a reasonable time after publication.

Disclosure and Conflict of Interest
All authors must disclose in their text any conflicts of financial interest or other conflicts of interest that may be interpreted to influence the outcome or interpretation of their manuscripts. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.

When a writer finds significant mistakes or inaccuracies in his or her own work, the writer's obligation to immediately notify journal or publisher editors and work with editors to retract or repair the paper. If the editor or publisher learns from a third party that a published work contains significant errors, it is the author's obligation to immediately revoke or correct the paper or provide evidence to the editor of the authenticity of the original paper.

The Sumbula Journal editor is responsible for deciding which articles to publish. The validation of the work in question and its importance for the researcher and the reader should always encourage such a decision. Editors can be guided by editorial board policies of journals and restricted by legal requirements as applicable in the future due to defamation, copyright infringement and plagiarism. Editors can talk with editors and other reviewers to make this decision.

The game is fair
An editor at any time evaluates manuscripts for their intellectual content irrespective of race, sex, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship or political philosophy of authors.


Editors and any editorial staff may not disclose any information about manuscripts sent to anyone other than potential authors, reviewers, reviewers, editorial advisors, and other publishers.

Disclosure and Conflict of Interest
Unpublished material disclosed in the submitted manuscript shall not be used in the research editors themselves without the written consent of the author.
