Authorship and Contributorship 

This policy outlines the criteria for authorship and the acknowledgment of contributions to maintain ethical standards and credit fairness.

Authorship Criteria

To qualify as an author, individuals must meet all the following criteria:

  1. Substantial Contribution: Significant involvement in the conception, data curation, design, execution, validation, or analysis and interpretation of the research.
  2. Drafting and Revising: Active participation in drafting the manuscript or critically revising it for important intellectual content.
  3. Approval of the Final Version: Approval of the final version of the manuscript to be published.
  4. Accountability: Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work, ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.

Individuals who do not meet all these criteria should be acknowledged in the acknowledgments section with their specific contributions specified.


Contributors who do not meet the authorship criteria but have made substantial contributions to the research project (e.g., technical support and data collection) should be listed in the acknowledgments section. Their contributions should be explicitly described to provide transparency and proper credit.

Responsibilities of the Corresponding Author

The corresponding author is an author responsible for a manuscript during pre-publication and post-publication including the questions related to research ethics, availability of the data, reproducibility of the research, the source code, and other related information. He/She ensures the eligible co-authors are included in the manuscript, secures the approval of the final manuscript from all co-authors, manages the administration and communication for article submission, and arranges payment for the Author’s Fee or Article Processing Charge (APC) if necessary.

Changes to Authorship: Post Publication

Any changes to authorship (addition, removal, or reordering of authors) after the publication must be approved by all authors. Requests for changes must be submitted to the editorial office with a detailed explanation and confirmation of agreement from all authors. The editorial manager will contact each author via email regarding any alterations to the authorship, requiring confirmation from all authors listed in the published manuscript.

Disputes and Resolution

In cases of authorship disputes, the journal will follow guidelines provided by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) to mediate and resolve conflicts fairly and transparently.

AI Authorship

Authorship attributed to a generative AI model will not be accepted. IIAIR only recognizes human contributors as authors of manuscripts submitted to the IIAIR journal, as they bear responsibility for the research process and the writing of the manuscript, not the AI model.

Generative AI Policy

Generative AI in aiding the manuscript preparation is the Large Language Model (LLM), like ChatGPT, which generates the text based on the prompt of the users. Carefully assessing the generated text, the IIAIR's current policies for Generative AI are:

  1. A large number of text generated by AI in the manuscripts are not allowed which reduces the contributions of the human author.
  2. AI, like ChatGPT, cannot become an author as it is not responsible for the research process and its integrity.
  3. When the text generated from AI is used as a reference, the author must detail in the methods section the type of the AI model, how the text is generated based on the prompt, when it is used,  to what extent this model is used, and any other important information.

Complaints and Appeals

This policy outlines the procedures for addressing and resolving such issues to maintain the integrity of our publication. Complaints and appeals may pertain to, but are not limited to:

  • Concerns about the conduct of editors, reviewers, or staff.
  • Allegations of ethical violations or misconduct.

Complaints should be submitted in writing via email to the editorial office at iiair@itk.ac.id. The complaint must include:

  • A clear description of the issue.
  • Relevant details such as manuscript ID, title, and names of the authors (with relevant parties).
  • Any supporting evidence or documentation.

Handling of Complaints

Upon receipt of a complaint, the following steps will be taken:

  1. Acknowledgment: The complaint will be acknowledged within ten business days.
  2. Investigation: A thorough and impartial investigation will be conducted, which may involve consultation with relevant parties such as editors, reviewers, and authors.
  3. Resolution: A resolution will be communicated to the complainant within a reasonable timeframe, typically within 30 days. If more time is required, the complainant will be informed of the delay and the reasons for it.

Confidentiality and Impartiality

All complaints and appeals will be handled with strict confidentiality. The journal ensures that all parties involved in the process will be treated fairly and impartially.

Plagiarism Screening

All submissions to the Innovative Informatics and Artificial Intelligence Research (IIAIR) journal undergo a comprehensive plagiarism check. Turnitin will be employed to assess the similarity index of each manuscript. Manuscripts with a similarity index exceeding 20% will be subject to automatic rejection, without further consideration in the peer-review process. Authors are strongly advised to revise their manuscript and advised to resubmit the manuscript to the IIAIR journal. Ensuring the originality of submitted manuscripts, as demonstrated by a similarity index of less than 20%, is imperative for publication in IIAIR, as only manuscripts of exceptional quality will be considered for publication.

Manuscript Types

Research Article

A research article is a traditional scholarly document comprising a hypothesis, investigation, solution, experimentation, and/or simulation, culminating in findings that enrich the scientific discourse within the related field.


A survey article is a comprehensive review that analyzes and summarizes current existing research on a particular topic. A survey should provide the readers with an overview of the state-of-the-art knowledge in that field. An example would be a Systematic Literature Review.


A tutorial article is a pedagogical resource designed to assist readers in acquiring knowledge and proficiency in a specific subject through systematic guidance. This type of article aims to provide comprehensive insights into the topic, facilitating readers' comprehension that may include the relevant code examples. The chosen topic should either be an emerging area lacking community understanding or a complex traditional subject with potential implications for future research. It is important to note that tutorial articles submitted to the IIAIR International Journal should not discuss any topic that is rigorously presented in the textbooks. Citing supporting references is essential to enable readers to delve deeper into the topic with its current developments. The title of the manuscript should contain the word “tutorial”.
