Peer Review Process
Jurnal Ilmiah Peuradeun (JIP) the Indonesian Journal of the Social Sciences, 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 reviewers with the "Double-Blind Review" system. Authors should receive acknowledgment of receipt of their articles after three weeks of submission. If the article passes the Editorial initial screening, the article is sent to two reviewers and the process takes about three to four months. Articles accepted with minor or major revisions should be revised as the reviewers’ comments and suggestions. 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.
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 (Second Round), 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 issues. It normally takes about 7 months to 1 year from submission to publication, with an average of 6 months.
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. To be published in JIP, a manuscript should meet seven (7) general criteria:
- The manuscript is the work of the Original;
- Conformity between methodologies and research topics;
- Novelty (we do not consider meeting report abstracts and preprints on community servers to compromise novelty);
- Have a good analysis;
- Provides strong evidence for its conclusions;
- Of extreme importance to scientists in the specific field;
- Ideally, interesting to researchers in other related disciplines.
In general, to be acceptable, a manuscript 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 the JIP.
