Peer Review Process / Policy

1. General Overview of Peer Review Process

Articles published in Jurnal Presipitasi are reviewed first by Mitra Bebestari (Reviewer) before being published. By default, the review method used is blind peer-review where reviewers can still find out the author's identity. However, if the writer wants a double-blind peer-review process, we may provide it as authors request. We really appreciate the participation of reviewers because the quality of the article can be maintained because the reviewers who work voluntarily. The decision to accept whether or not an article is made by the Chief Editor through the Editor's Board is based on recommendations or comments from the reviewers. Plagiarism screening of texts submitted to this journal is carried out with the help of Google Scholar or Turnitin apps. The more plagiarism, the article will be immediately rejected (if more than 20% does not include a bibliography). Beginning with Volume 16 Number 2 in July 2019, Jurnal Presipitasi also received articles in English.


2. Spesific Overview of Peer-Review Process

Reviewers will be asked to provide comments in a detailed and constructive manner where the comments will be the basis for consideration for editors to reject or accept articles that have been submitted. Some things that need attention from the reviewer are as follows:

a. Originality and significance

Reviewers are asked to discuss the originality of the findings submitted in an article. In addition, reviewers should see whether the findings can significantly influence the scientific community. If the reviewer finds the same work as the article being reviewed, the reviewer can provide suggestions or criticism to improve the way the research results are delivered.

b. The novelty of the theoretical approach and how to discuss the problems

Reviewers are asked to discuss the novelty of the theoretical approach and the way the authors discuss the results of research to solve problems. This novelty element can usually be seen in the introduction section as an introduction to the urgency of the research that has been done.

c. Strengths and weaknesses of the method used

Reviewers are expected to be able to assess the method used. Statistical analysis or other analytical methods that affect the interpretation of results should be criticized in order to improve the quality of the article being reviewed.

d. Reliability of the appearance of research results and conclusions

Reviewers are expected to be able to assess the reliability of the research results and conclusions obtained. This reliability can be assessed through the completeness of the analysis and the data that has been obtained.

e. Layout alignment with the guidelines

Alignment with the guidelines will make it easier for editors to do the editing and lay-outing process. Many writers often ignore this and only format their writing incompletely and perfectly according to the guidelines given. Reviewers can assess this but the main focus is on the content and some previous points.

f. Suggestion and feedback

When found several errors or shortcomings of an article, the reviewer is expected to be able to show clearly, which parts should be improved and what needs to be done to improve the quality of the article.
