Peer Review Process

Every submitted manuscript would be selected by the editorial team before sending to the reviewers. Referees are asked to judge the quality of research and also the relevance.

The journal uses single blind review where every paper will judged by two reviewers. Papers must free from plagiarism (for this process, Turnitin is used to check plagiarsm). Each manuscript which is detected plagiarsm, not proper and not meeting the journal criteria would be rejected without eksternal reviewing process. Meanwhile, each paper which is fulfilling the journal standard is subject to a peer review process, using researchers who are expert in relevant fields.

The decision of receiving or rejecting of the manuscript is determined by editorial team based on reviewing result. Kinds of editorial decisions are: rejected, need of major revision, need of minor revision, and received. The final decision towards manuscript would be communicating with the authors through electronic mail.

However, the Journal tends to publish empirical research studies that have clear significance to a national readership. Therefore, work must have the following features:
