Peer Review Process

Every article that goes to the editorial staff will be selected through Initial Review processes by Editorial Board. Then, the articles will be sent to the Mitra Bestari/ peer reviewer and will go to the next selection by Double Blind Preview Process. After that, the articles will be returned to the authors to revise. These processes take a month for a maximum time. In each Manuscript, Mitra Bebestari/ peer reviewer will be rated from the substantial and technical aspects.

All submitted manuscripts are evaluated by editorial staff. Those Manuscripts evaluated by editors to be inappropriate to journal criteria are rejected promptly without external review. Manuscripts evaluated to be of potential interest to our readership are sent to double-blind reviewers. The editors then decide based on the reviewer's recommendation from among several possibilities: reject, revision required, or accepted.
