Publication Ethics of Indonesia Medicus Veterinus
Indonesia Medicus Veterinus (IMV) is a journal whose articles are reviewed by peer reviewers in the fields of veterinary science and medicine. IMV is dedicated to publishing scientific articles in the field of veterinary medicine and related areas. It is published six times a year in January, March, May, July, September, and November and serves as a platform for registering and documenting scientific research, as well as a forum for discussion in the field of veterinary medicine. IMV adheres to standard publication ethics for all parties involved in the publication of scientific works, including authors, peer reviewers, editors, and publishers.
Authors are required to submit original works and not publish them partially or completely to other journals until IMV provides an answer on the eligibility of the submitted articles. Authors must include original, accurate, and reliable research data, and cite the literature that influences their articles, whether it be articles in print journals or online, or the results of personal interviews. If the author finds errors or mistakes in the article, they are obliged to notify the editor or publisher so that they can withdraw or improve the article in question.
Peer reviewers are expected to provide input and assist editors in making policies for the reviewed articles, and help authors improve the quality of their manuscripts. Peer reviewers should inform the editor about the appropriateness and ability to review the articles sent to them. All articles in the editing process must be kept confidential, and the editing process should be as objective as possible by providing reasonable feedback, without personal criticism of the author. If the manuscript is not suitable for publication, the confidentiality of the manuscript must be maintained, so that it is not used by others without the author's permission.
Editors are responsible for accepting manuscripts submitted by authors. During the editing process, editors must prioritize the scientific weight of the manuscript, and should not consider authors' race, gender, ethnicity, religion, nationality, or political views. Editors are not allowed to keep information about the manuscript confidential, except to the authors, peer reviewers, and publishers. If the accepted manuscript is not suitable for publication, editors must maintain the confidentiality of the manuscript, so that it is not used by others without the author's permission.

Publishers work with editors to maintain the quality of journals and issue policies that promote journal development.
