The peer-reviewed publication of articles in Dhadh: Journal of Arabic Language Education is an important foundation in the development of a coherent and respected knowledge network. This is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method.

The STAI Serdang Lubuk Pakam Quality Assurance Institute as the publisher of this Journal takes the task of maintaining all stages of publishing very seriously and we are aware of our ethical and other responsibilities.

In addition, the Editorial Board and STAI Serdang Lubuk Pakam will assist with communication with other journals and/or publishers if this is useful and necessary.
The editors of Dhadh: Journal of Arabic Language Education are responsible for deciding which articles submitted to the journal should be published. The validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers should always drive such decisions. Editors may be guided by the discretion of the journal's editorial board and limited by applicable legal requirements regarding defamation, copyright infringement and plagiarism. Editors may consult other editors or reviewers in making this decision.
An editor evaluates manuscripts at all times for their intellectual content regardless of the author's race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic origin, nationality, or political philosophy.
Editors and any editorial staff may not disclose any information about submitted manuscripts to anyone other than the respective authors, reviewers, prospective reviewers, other editorial advisors and publishers, as appropriate.
Disclosure and conflicts of interest
Unpublished material disclosed in submitted manuscripts may not be used in the editor's own research without the written consent of the author.
Contribution to Editorial Decisions
Peer reviews assist editors in making editorial decisions and through editorial communication with authors can also assist authors in improving papers.
Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that an immediate review is not possible, must notify the editor and withdraw from the review process.
Any manuscript received for review must be treated as a confidential document. They may not be shown or discussed with others except as permitted by the editor.
Review must be done objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees must express their views clearly with supporting arguments.
Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument has been previously reported must be accompanied by a relevant citation. Reviewers should also call the editor's attention any substantial similarities or overlaps between the manuscript under consideration and other published papers of which they have personal knowledge.
Disclosure and Conflict 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 in which they have a conflict of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with the authors, companies, or institutions with which the papers are related.
Authors of the original research report must present an accurate account of the work done as well as an objective discussion of its significance. The underlying data must be represented accurately on paper. A paper must contain sufficient detail and references to allow others to replicate the work. Statements that are deceptive or intentionally inaccurate are unethical and unacceptable behavior.
