Peer Review Process

Publication of articles in Jurnal Segar is dependent solely on scientific validity and coherence as judged by our editors and/or peer reviewers, who will also assess whether the writing is comprehensible and whether the work represents a useful contribution to Sport Science. Jurnal Segar acknowledged the effort and suggestions made by its reviewers. Any accepted manuscript will be reviewed by at least two reviewers, plus editorial comments. The author is required to revised the manuscript according to reviewer and editor comments. Editor team will process it for  later publication. The review process can be separately described as shown below;

The Editor will first evaluate all manuscripts submitted at a maximum of 2 weeks time. Those rejected at this stage are insufficiently original, have serious scientific flaws, or are outside the aims and scope of the Jurnal Segar. Those that meet the minimum criteria are passed on to expert reviewers for review, and usually took up to 4 weeks. Submitted manuscripts will generally be reviewed by experts who will be asked to evaluate whether to accept or not the manuscript is sufficiently clear for publication. The method is double blind peer review.

Review Reports

Reviewers are asked to evaluate whether the manuscript:

  • Is original by stating the objectives and gap clearly
  • Is methodologically sound
  • Follows appropriate ethical guidelines
  • Has results/findings which are clearly presented and support the conclusions
  • Correctly references previous relevant work
  • Reviewers are not expected to correct or copyedit manuscripts. Language correction is not part of the peer-review process.


Reviewers advise the editor, who is responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the article. The Editors will reach a decision based on these reports and, where necessary, they will consult with members of the Editorial Board. Editor’s decision is final.
