» Plagiarism Check

The editor will run a plagiarism check using Plagiarism Checker X for the submitted articles before sending to the reviewers. We do not process any plagiarized contents. If an article has over 20% of plagiarism based on the result of the check, we will send back the article to the author to be revised for the plagiarized contents

» Peer Review Process

Every submitted article is independently reviewed by at least two peer-reviewers. The decision for publication, amendment, or rejection is based upon their reports/recommendation.  After being reviewed, there will be four kinds of editor decision based on reviewers’ recommendation:

  1. Accept Submission: The submission will be accepted without revisions.
  2. Revisions Required: The submission will be accepted after minor changes have been made.
  3. Resubmit for Review: The submission needs to be re-worked, but with significant changes, may be accepted. It will require a second round of review, however.
  4. Decline Submission: The submission will not be published in the journal.

» Article Revision

The articles sent back to the authors for revision should be returned to the editor without delay. The revised article returned later than 20 days will be considered as new submissions. The revised article can be sent to editorial through the Online Submission Interface

» Article Submission and Processing Charges (APCs) 

All accepted articles will be published with no processing charge and freely available for worldwide readers

  » Withdrawal of Articles

 

The authors are not allowed to withdraw submitted articles in the process of reviewing, because the withdrawal is waste of valuable resources that editors and reviewers spent a great deal of time processing submitted articles. The withdrawal can be direct requests or without confirmation in which the authors do not send their revised articles. For this circumstance, they will be punished with paying IDR 400.000 per manuscript. However, it is unethical to withdraw a submitted manuscript from one journal if accepted by another journal. The withdrawal of articles after they are accepted for publication, the author will be punished by paying IDR 1000.000 per manuscript. Withdrawal of article is only allowed after withdrawal penalty has been fully paid to the Publisher. If the authors don't agree to pay the penalty, the authors and his/her affiliation will be blacklisted for publication in this journal. Even, his/her previously published articles will be removed from our journal.
