Peer Review Process
Jurnal Ilmiah Peuradeun (JIP) adheres to a Double-Blind Review process that is rapid, fair, and also ensures a high quality of articles published. Through the Double-Blind Review system, both reviewers and authors are anonymous. Author anonymity to prevent reviewer bias, for example, based on the author's country of origin or previous controversial work. Manuscripts written by prestigious or well-known authors are considered based on the content of their manuscripts, not their reputation. This statement is based on the COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) Code of Conduct and Best Practice Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers.
All manuscripts submitted to this journal will be reviewed by at least 2 (two) or more expert reviewers with the "Double-Blind Review" system. The reviewers give scientific valuable comments improving the contents of the manuscript. The decision acceptance for publication, amendment, or rejection will be made by Editors according to reviewers' comments, or recommendations. In certain cases, if needed, the editor may send the article to another reviewer for review (the third reviewer), before making a decision. Publication of accepted articles including the sequence of published articles will be made by the Editor in Chief by considering the sequence of accepted dates and geographical distribution of authors as well as thematic issue.
JIP received more submissions than it could issue. Editors can reject manuscripts without a peer-review process if the manuscript is judged not to meet the minimum required journal qualifications. All manuscripts submitted to this journal must follow the focus and scope, and author guidelines of this journal. The submitted manuscripts must address scientific merit or novelty appropriate to the focus and scope. All manuscripts must be free from plagiarism contents. All authors are suggested to use plagiarism detection software to do the similarity checking. Editors check the plagiarism detection of articles in this journal by using Turnitin software. To be published in JIP, a paper should meet four (4) general criteria:
- Provides strong evidence for its conclusions.
- Novelty (we do not consider meeting report abstracts and preprints on community servers to compromise novelty).
- Of extreme importance to scientists in the specific field.
- 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:
- Accept Submission;
- Revisions Required;
- Resubmit for Review;
- Resubmit Elsewhere;
- Decline Submission;
- See comments.
