Diversity and Inclusion
Jurnal Ilmu Fisika (JIF) is deeply committed to fostering diversity and ensuring inclusion within our scientific community. As part of our dedication to these values, which are in harmony with COPE's Core Practices, we have instituted a comprehensive policy that upholds and promotes a rich tapestry of perspectives in the field of physics research.
JIF is steadfast in our commitment to cultivating an environment that is welcoming and supportive of individuals from various backgrounds, experiences, and viewpoints. This policy extends to all facets of our operations, including but not limited to manuscript submission, peer review, editorial decision-making, and the composition of our editorial board.
Affirmative Action in Waiving APCs:
We recognize that financial constraints should not be a barrier to the dissemination of high-quality research. JIF proudly offers a waiver of Article Processing Charges (APCs) for authors who require financial assistance, ensuring that lack of funds does not inhibit the publication of worthy scientific work.
Our commitment to diversity means providing equitable opportunities for researchers from underrepresented groups, emerging economies, and those who may face systemic barriers within the academic publishing landscape.
Accessibility and Accommodation:
We endeavor to make our content widely accessible and to provide reasonable accommodations that ensure our publishing process is inclusive of authors with disabilities.
Regular Review and Improvement:
Understanding that the pursuit of diversity and inclusion is an ongoing journey, JIF is dedicated to the regular review and improvement of our policies and practices to meet the evolving needs of our global community.
By implementing this policy, JIF underscores its unwavering commitment to breaking down barriers, nurturing diversity, and building an inclusive culture that propels the physics community forward.
