By submitting a research paper, it is accepted that the author has agreed to our terms and conditions which may change from time to time without notice. Prospective authors are expected to only submit their own original work. Manuscripts that violate the general publication principles may be rejected. If it is considered severe, then decisive action can be taken by the Garut High School of Technology to the author. Therefore, authors must avoid plagiarism because there are consequences for authors who are caught plagiarizing. About the explanation of the act of plagiarism, read more at:

The author will be responsible for what happens if copyright infringement or any violation of law is committed by publishing the research work by the author. Prior to publication, the author should check whether the journal is accepted by his supervisor (supervisor or other member of the author), or whatever authority he intends to submit his research work to. We will not be liable in the event that at any time, due to legal reasons, the journal stops accepting publication of manuscripts or is unable to publish manuscripts that have been accepted, we reserve the right to cancel all or any of the manuscripts without any compensation or refund any kind of processing fees.

The Institut Teknologi Garut strives to process the manuscript quickly but if for any reason the online publication of a manuscript is delayed, we will not be responsible for any consequences in the delayed online publication. Authors can download PDF files from journal websites or request high-quality PDF files of published papers from publishing service operators. If the author requires publication in hardcopy, then he can contact the publisher team with other terms and conditions determined by the Institut Teknologi Garut.
