Peer Review Process
All papers are fully peer-reviewed. We only publish articles that have been reviewed and approved by highly qualified researchers with expertise in a field appropriate for the article. We used double blind peer-reviewing process. Detailed information about the flow for the manuscript submission (author) to the acceptance by editor is shown in the following steps :
- Manuscript Submission (by author).
- Manuscript Check and Selection (by manager and editors). Editors have a right to directly accept, reject, or review. Prior to further processing steps, plagiarism check using iThenticate is applied for each manuscript.
- Manuscript Reviewing Process (by reviewers double-blind review).
- Notification of Manuscript Acceptance, Revision, or Rejection (by editor to author based on reviewers comments).
- Paper Revision (by author).
- Revision Submission based on Reviewer Suggestion (by author) with similar flow to point number 1.
- If reviewer seems to be satisfied with revision, notification for acceptance (by editor).
- Galley proof and publishing process
The steps point number 1 to 5 is considered as 1 round of peer-reviewing process. Our reviewing process at least goes through 2 round of reviewing process.
The journal editor or editorial board considers the feedback provided by the peer reviewers and arrives at a decision. The following are the most common decisions :
- accept without any changes (acceptance): the journal will publish the paper in its original form.
- accept with minor revisions (acceptance): the journal will publish the paper and asks the author to make small corrections.
- accept after major revisions (conditional acceptance ): the journal will publish the paper provided the authors make the changes suggested by the reviewers and/or editors.
- revise and resubmit (conditional rejection): the journal is willing to reconsider the paper in another round of decision making after the authors make major changes.
- reject the paper (outright rejection): the journal will not publish the paper or reconsider it even if the authors make major revisions
