About the Journal

History Journal

Jurnal Profesi Medika : Jurnal Kedokteran dan Kesehatan was born in 2007 with a printed version with the number p-ISSN 0216-3438. In total there are 11 volumes have already been produced. In his journey, Editor in Chief, who has carried out the following tasks were Nurfitri Bustamam, M.Kes, M.PdKes, and dr. Marlina Dewiastuti, M.Kes. Currently since 2017 under the coordination of Andri Pramesyanti Pramono, Ph.D.

In 2018 we submitted an electronic version of the ISSN and received an e-ISSN number 2621-1122. Since then, we have transformed into electronic scientific journals and want to improve their journal management according to existing standards. Our first reference point was the national journal accreditation guidelines. We have adjusted all aspects of the guideline, starting from involving competent reviewers partners, in order to provide valuable input for each published manuscript. Likewise, with the addition of several rules such as adjusting the article template (3 changes have been made on 2007, 2017 and 2020) having a DOI prefix of 10.33533 (on January 2019), completing the writing style, adding rules for retraction and text withdrawal, in collaboration with the national tobacco control.

Based on significant changes from 2018, we are successfully national indexed in Sinta 3 and also indexed in DOAJ. To improve the quality of our services, in December 2019 we require that each manuscript to be published be subject to financing of IDR 800,000. It is hoped that we will make this budget a part of achieving an international reputable journal by 2023. Along with several other strategies, such as involving external editors as well as international reviewers. Not mention using English for all OJS system and published article since then. We hope that Jurnal Profesi Medika can become a reputable journal in the fields of medicine and health internationally.

Jurnal Profesi Medika : Jurnal Kedokteran dan Kesehatan should consider issuing a correction if:

  • A small part of an otherwise reliable publication reports flawed data or proves to be misleading, especially if this is the result of honest error.
  • The Authors list is incorrect (e.g., a contributor has been omitted or someone who does not meet authorship criteria has been included).

Corrections to peer-reviewed content fall into one of three categories:

  • Publisher correction (erratum): to notify readers of a critical error made by journal staff (usually a production error) that negatively impacts the publication record or the scientific integrity of the article, or the reputation of the authors of the journal.
  • Author correction (corrigendum): to notify readers of a critical error made by the authors, which has a negative impact on the publication record or the scientific integrity of the article, or on the reputation of the authors or the journal.
  • Addendum: an addition to the article by its authors to explain inconsistencies, expand the existing work, or otherwise explain or update the information in the main work.

The Editor-in-Chief decides whether a correction should be issued, sometimes with advice from reviewers or editorial board members. Handling editors will contact the authors of the paper concerned with a request for clarification, but the final decision about whether a correction is required and which type rests with the Editor-in-Chief.
