All manuscripts submitted to this journal should follow focus and scope, and author guidelines of this journal. The submitted manuscripts must address scientific merit or novelty appropriate to the focus and scope (Route 1). Every article that goes to the editorial staff will be selected through Initial Review processes by the manager and editor (Route 2). Editors have a right to directly accept, reject, or review. Prior to further processing steps, plagiarism check using Turnitin or Plagiarism Checker X is applied for each manuscript. All authors are suggested to use plagiarism detection software to do the similarity checking before submitting the draft. The articles will be sent to the Reviewer and will go to the next selection by single-blind peer review (Route 3). In each manuscript, the Reviewer will be rated from the substantial and technical aspects. All articles will be peer-reviewed by at least 2 (two) or more reviewers. After that, the articles will be returned to the editor (route 4) and the editor will send notification of manuscript acceptance, revision, or rejection to the author (Route 5). The author submitted the revision version based on the reviewer's suggestion (Route 6). If the reviewer seems to be satisfied with revision, the editor will send a notification for acceptance. The next step is copyediting, galley proof process, and proofreading (route 7-9). Publication of accepted articles including the sequence of published articles will be made by Journal Manager by considering sequence of accepted date (Route 10).
Detailed information about the flow for the manuscript submission (author) to the acceptance by editor is shown in the following figure.
The journal editor or editorial board considers the feedback provided by the peer reviewers and arrives at a decision. The following are the most common decisions:
a. accept without any changes (acceptance): the journal will publish the paper in its original form
b. accept with minor revisions (acceptance): the journal will publish the paper and asks the author to make small corrections
c. accept after major revisions (conditional acceptance ): the journal will publish the paper provided the authors make the changes suggested by the reviewers and/or editors
d. revise and resubmit (conditional rejection): the journal is willing to reconsider the paper in another round of decision making after the authors make major changes
e. reject the paper (outright rejection): the journal will not publish the paper or reconsider it even if the authors make major revisions
