Editorial Policy

Jurnal Ilmiah Peuradeun

General Policies

Jurnal Ilmiah Peuradeun (JIP), is the International Journal of Social Sciences, and an International Journal Open Access and peer-reviewed journal, seeks to publish those papers that are most influential in their fields and that will significantly advance scientific understanding. Selected papers should present views, opinions and broadly important data, syntheses, or concepts. They should merit the recognition by the scientific community and general public provided by publication in the JIP, beyond that provided by specialty journals. We welcome submissions from all fields of science and from any source.
The journal is published 3 times per year (January, May, and September) and published online by the end of the month of edition. All published articles are available online. These articles undergo the rigorous double-blind peer-review process. JIP will publish a manuscript which has never been published in any publication or no publication is being requested or considered by other media, accordance with the ethics statement on the JIP. Each manuscript submitted to the JIP is written in English. For further details on submission standards, please see our website at:


It is our editorial policy to accommodate broad diversity of viewpoints on various issues and provide platform for researchers to publish and discuss their original research and review work. Nevertheless, any views expressed in this publication are the views of the authors and not of Editorial Board JIP or SCAD Independent. JIP or SCAD Independent can not be held responsible for views, opinions and written statements of authors or researchers published in this journal.
All articles published in this journal are protected by copyright, is licensed under a Creative Commons 4.0 International License (CC-BY-SA) or an equivalent license as the optimal license for the publication, distribution, use, and reuse of scholarly works. Access permissions beyond the scope of this license may be available at the digital libraries and open access journal database. And all research result and articles or the ideas of in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonym refereeing by two anonymous referees.

Peer Review Process

JIP receives many more submissions than can be published. Therefore, we ask peer-reviewers to keep in mind that every paper that is accepted means that another good paper must be rejected. The Editorial board may reject a manuscript without peer review if that paper is judged not to meet the journal minimum required qualifications.
The evaluation procedures are under constant review and the JIP editor works closely with the members of the review committees and the Council of Scientists to ensure that all applications are assessed fairly and thoroughly. One editor will usually take each article through from start to finish. The JIP team of research editors aims to read all of newly submitted research articles within three days. If your article is potentially suitable for the JIP that editor will ask a senior colleague to approve it, and, if that succeeds, he or she will send your article to two external peer reviewers. Usually the final result of the paper review is sent to the authors within 2-3 weeks working days.
The peer-review process is Double Blind Review. Both the reviewer and the author are anonymous. Author anonymity prevents any reviewer bias, for example based on an author's country of origin or previous controversial work. Articles written by prestigious or renowned authors are considered on the basis of the content of their papers, rather than their reputation. Reviewers can often identify the author through their writing style, subject matter or self-citation.
To be published in JIP, a paper should meet four (4) general criteria:
  1. Provides strong evidence for its conclusions. 
  2. Novel (we do not consider meeting report abstracts and preprints on community servers to compromise novelty). 
  3. Of extreme importance to scientists in the specific field. 
  4. Ideally, interesting to researchers in other related disciplines.
In general, to be acceptable, a paper should represent an advance in understanding likely to influence thinking in the field. There should be a discernible reason why the work deserves the visibility of publication in a JIP rather than the best of the specialist journals.
The reviewers will then submit their reports on the manuscripts along with their recommendation of one of the following actions to the Editor:
1. Accept to Publish (Publish Unaltered)
2. Accept with Consider after Minor Changes
3. Accept with Consider after Major Changes
4. Rejected: Manuscript is flawed or not sufficiently.
