Peer Review Process

Indonesian Economic Review uses double-blind review process, where both the reviewer(s) and author(s) remains anonymous throughout the process. First, articles submitted research paper will be checked for originality by using Turnitin software. Moreover, all manuscripts submitted to this journal are evaluated by the Editor to ensure the manuscripts suitable with aims and scope of the journal. In this case some manuscripts are rejected or returned before the review process. 

After initial evaluation, the manuscripts are sent to at least two reviewers which are determined by editorial board. If necessary, the number of reviewers can be increased by Editorial Board. The reviewers are chosen from reviewers list board according to their expertise. Reviewers are asked to evaluate the manuscript’s originality, methodology, contribution to the literature, novelty, presentation of results and support for the conclusions, and appropriate referencing of previous relevant studies. Referees might accept the manuscript, reject the manuscript or might require a revision for style and/or content. For publication of articles, two positive reports are required. In case one referee report is negative while the other is positive, the article is forwarded to a third referee for addition evaluation. When a revision is required by the referee or referees, the author(s) are to consider the criticism and suggestions offered by the referees, and thy should be sent back the revised version of manuscript in 30 days. If revised manuscript is not sent in a month, the manuscript is removed from referee evaluation process. Reviewer may request more than one revision of a manuscript. Manuscripts which are not accepted for publication are not re-sent to their author(s).

The editors then make a decision based on the reviewer’s recommendation from among several possibilities: rejected, require major revision, need minor revision, or accepted. Editor in Chief has the right to decide which manuscripts submitted to the journal should be published. The accepted manuscripts for publication are placed in an issue sequence. The whole processes is assumed to be completely within 12-25 weeks.
