Peer Review Process

Peer review is an integral part of scientific publishing that confirms the validity of the science reported. Peer reviewers are experts who volunteer their time to help improve the journal manuscripts they review.

Jurnal Riset Pendidikan MIPA (JRPM) follows a single-blinded peer review process, following the practices of good scholarly journals and to ensure impartial editorial decision-making.

1. Submission of Paper

The corresponding or submitting author submits the paper to the journal. This is usually via an online system. Occasionally, Jurnal Riset Pendidikan MIPA may accept submissions by email.

2. Editorial Office Assessment

Jurnal Riset Pendidikan MIPA checks the paper’s composition and arrangement against the journal’s Author Guidelines to make sure it includes the required sections and stylizations. Once the article passes through this step, articles are subjected to editorial review for focus and scope, relevance, and other standard requirements.

3. Appraisal by the Editor-in-Chief

The Editor-in-Chief checks that the paper is appropriate for the journal's focus and scope and is sufficiently original and interesting, and then assigns an Editor who handles the peer review. If not, the paper may be rejected without being reviewed any further.

4. Invitation to Reviewers

The section editor sends invitations to individuals he or she believes would be appropriate reviewers. As responses are received, further invitations are issued, if necessary, until the required number of acceptances is obtained.

5. Response to Invitations

Potential reviewers consider the invitation against their own expertise, conflicts of interest and availability. They then accept or decline. If possible, when declining, they might also suggest alternative reviewers.

6. Review is Conducted

The reviewers read it closely and provide individual critiques, usually within one to two weeks. The review is then submitted to the journal, with a recommendation to accept or reject it – or else with a request for revision (usually flagged as either major or minor) before it is reconsidered.

7. Editor Journal Evaluates the Reviews

The section editor considers all the returned reviews before making an overall decision. Depending on reviewer commentary and recommendations, manuscripts may be sent back to authors for revision. After the section editor receives the revised manuscript, it is assigned to the reviewer(s) once again, for approval of changes. But the final decision to publish is made by the Editor-in-Chief.

If the paper was sent back for revision, the reviewers should expect to receive a new version, unless they have opted out of further participation. However, where only minor changes were requested this follow-up review might be done by the section editor.
