Indonesian Journal of Medical Research, using guidelines issued by the Publication Ethics Committee (COPE). The JPKI requires that all articles involving human subjects respect the principles of research ethics as set forth in the Helsinki Declaration. The research involving animals as subjects is also required to comply with the International Principles for Biomedical Research issued by the International Health Information Science Board (CIOMS). Ethical publications should be clear in order to improve the quality of research. JPKI COPE adjusts to meet ethical standards for publishers, editors, authors, and reviewers.
