Peer Review Guidelines

The suitability of manuscripts for publication in Jurnal Perencanaan dan Pengembangan Kebijakan (JPPK) is judged by peer reviewers and editorial board. All the review process are conducted in blind review. Editor In Chief handles all correspondence with the author and makes the final decision as to whether the paper is recommended for acceptance, rejection, or needs to be returned to the author for revision.

Basic Screening

Editor in Chief and Section Editors will evaluate the submitted papers on prequalification step for suitability of further review process. The manuscripts will be evaluated by two or three qualified peer reviewers selected by Editor in Chief and Section Editors. The peer reviewers should examine the manuscript and return it with their recommendation to the Editor in Chief or Section Editors as soon as possible, usually within 3 weeks. If one of the peer reviewers recommend rejection, the Editor in Chief will ask a third reviewer or Section Editors to decide the acceptance or rejection of the paper.

Papers needing revision will be returned to the authors, and the author must return the revised manuscript to the Editor in Chief via OJS of JPPK. Editor In Chief sends the revised manuscript to Section Editors to check whether the manuscript is revised as suggested by peer reviewers. Sections Editors could give a recommendation to Editor in Chief that the manuscript should return to authors, accept, or reject within 2 weeks. After acceptance by Section Editors, manuscript is forwarded to technical editor to be layout for an editorial board meeting. Editor in Chief would send an acceptance letter announcing the publication issue attached with manuscript reprint to authors.
