Journal Publication Ethics Guidelines
The publication of articles in the peer-reviewed Jurnal Manajemen Perhotelan is an important foundation in the development of a coherent and respected knowledge network. 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 the scientific method. Therefore, it is important to agree on standards of ethical behavior that are expected for all parties involved in the act of publishing: authors, journal editors, peer reviewers, publishers, and the public. Petra Christian University as the publisher of the Jurnal Manajemen Perhotelan takes its duties of guardianship over all stages of publication very seriously and we are aware of our ethical and other responsibilities.

In addition, the Hotel Management Program, School of Business and Management, Petra Christian University, Indonesia and the Editorial Board will assist with communication with other journals and/or publishers if useful and necessary.

Publication Decisions
The Editor of the Jurnal Manajemen Perhotelan is responsible for deciding which articles submitted to the journal should be published. Validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers should always drive such decisions. Editors may be guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and limited by applicable legal requirements regarding defamation, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. The editors can consult with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.

Fair play
An editor at all times evaluates manuscripts based on their intellectual content without regard to the author's race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic origin, nationality, or political philosophy.

Editors and any editorial staff should not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisors, and the publisher, as appropriate.

Disclosure and conflicts of interest
Unpublished material disclosed in a submitted manuscript may not be used in the editor's own research without written permission from the author.

Reviewer Duties
Contribution to Editorial Decisions
Peer review helps editors in making editorial decisions and through editorial communication with authors can also help authors in improving papers.

Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that prompt review is not possible should notify the editor and seek permission from the review process.

Any manuscript received for review must be treated as a confidential document. The document may not be shown or discussed with others except with the permission of the editor.

Objectivity Standards
The review must be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. The referee must express his views clearly with supporting arguments.

Source Acknowledgment
Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the author. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument has been reported previously should be accompanied by relevant citations. A reviewer should also draw the editor's attention if there are substantial similarities or overlaps between the manuscript under consideration and other published papers of which they are personally aware.

Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest
Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal gain. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts that have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any authors, companies, or institutions associated with the paper.

Writer's Duties
Reporting standards
Authors of original research reports must present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. The underlying data must be presented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain enough detail and references to allow others to replicate the work. False or intentionally inaccurate statements are unethical and unacceptable behavior.
