The entire editorial workflow is performed using the Open Journal System (OJS). The editorial workflow gives the Editors the authority to reject any manuscript because of the inappropriateness of its subject, lack of quality, or incorrectness of its results. The Editor cannot assign himself/ herself as an external reviewer of the manuscript. This is to ensure a high-quality, fair, and unbiased peer-review process of every manuscript submitted to the journal since any manuscript must be recommended by two or more external reviewers along with the Editor in charge of the manuscript in order for it to be accepted for publication in the journal. The following is the Editorial Workflow that every manuscript submitted to the journal undergoes during the course of the peer-review process.
- Jurnal Ilmiah Peuradeun (JIP) relies on the peer review process to uphold the quality and validity of articles that publish. All articles submitted to JIP will be peer-reviewed. JIP adheres to a Double-Blind Peer-Review process that is rapid and fair and also ensures a high quality of articles published. This statement is based on COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) Code of Conduct and Best Practice Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers.
- One editor will usually take each article through from start to finish. The editor determines whether the manuscript fits the journal’s focus and scope. Next, a check for the similarity rate is done using CrossCheck, powered by iThenticate. Any manuscripts out of the journal’s scope or containing plagiarism, including self-plagiarism, are rejected.
- The editors read all of the newly submitted articles within 3-5 days. The papers may be returned to authors by the Editors prior to review, if judged to be out of scope, out of the limits of the word length guidance, or not sufficiently prepared for publication.
- If your article is potentially suitable for JIP, that editor will send your article to peer reviewers. The journal uses a double-blind system for peer-review; both reviewers and authors’ identities remain anonymous. The paper will be peer-reviewed by three experts; two reviewers from outside and one editor from the journal are typically involved in reviewing a submission. 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.
- Usually, the final result of the paper review is sent to the authors within 4-5 weeks of working days. If a revision is necessary, the author is asked to re-submit the revised manuscript incorporating the suggestions and recommendations of the peer-reviewer.
- To facilitate rapid publication, authors are given a maximum of six weeks for revision from the date of notice and our system will send reminders every two weeks to the author. After six weeks, revised manuscripts will normally be considered new submissions.
- Manuscripts that have been received for publication will be sent to copyediting. Copyediting does the editing process of articles submitted to improve grammar and clarity of writing, works with Author to ensure everything is in place and ensures compliance in journal bibliography and textual style, and produces edited copies to be sent to the Layout Editor. Layout Editors perform a layout process to be converted into a "galley" file in PDF, HTML format which will appear in the journal publication format.
- Before being sent to the publication section, the manuscript will be sent to the proofreading to be read, corrected, and studied for writing errors including the writing format in the article script that was done with the author. Typographic and format errors will be corrected by the layout editor. Finally, the text will be sent to the Publication Editor to determine the publication schedule, update the page on the website, and update the metadata from the final text.
