Peer Review Process

JPT set a double-blind peer-review process. Each manuscript submission will be reviewed by at least two reviewers, along with editorial comments. The editor in charge is permitted to do acceptance/rejection decisions and processed to publication stage. Every author will be requested to revise the manuscript according to reviewer and editor discussions. A summary of the editorial process given in the flowchart below.


1. Submitted Manuscript Preview

The preview is intended to evaluate:

a. The suitability of the topic discussed in the article with the journal focus and scope

b. The suitability of the article with the template required for the journal

c. The suitability of the scientific text rule (Gaya Selingkung) that is required for the journal

d. The suitability of the sources used with the references in the article

e. The suitability of the reference writing system

f. The suitability of using the newest references (at least for the last 10 years) in the article


2. Double-Blind Peer Review

Double-blind peer review meaning that the author does not know the identity of the reviewer and otherwise. To assist academic editors, JPT staff handles all communication with authors, reviewers, and the external editor. The editor will check the status of manuscripts and the identity of reviewers at any time. Reviewers are given two weeks to write their review. For the review of a revised manuscript, reviewers are asked to provide their report within one week. In both cases, extensions can be granted on request.


3. Editor Desicion

Any process of acceptance decisions to the publication stage is made by an editor. The editor can select from accept, reject, ask the author for revision, ask for an additional reviewer.
