Peer Review Process

Indonesian Journal of Education and Mathematical Science (IJEMS) accepts articles by going through a double blind peer review process The stages are as followsi:

The first stage:
The editor performs a preliminary plagiarism check by Turnitin. Manuscripts with a similarity of 20% and above will automatically be rejected. Meanwhile, manuscripts free of plagiarism or similarity below or equal to 20% will proceed to the research design examination stage. Manuscripts that present a good research design will be immediately preceded to the peer-review stage. On the other hand, manuscripts that do not present a good research design will be immediately rejected.

Second stage:
Editors distribute manuscripts to reviewers. Indonesian Journal of Education and Mathematical Science (IJEMS) uses Double-Blind Peer Review. Therefore, before submitting to reviewers, the editor removes the author's identity, such as name, email, and affiliation. Reviewers check the contents of the manuscript using the review form provided on the journal website through a special login for reviewers. They provide recommendations on the results of the manuscript to the editor in the type of decision, namely the manuscript is accepted, revised, or rejected which must be accompanied by reasons.

Third phase:
The editor sends the results of the reviewer's review to the author. If the manuscript must be revised, but the author does not revise and provide feedback, the manuscript will be rejected. On the other hand, if the manuscript is accepted, the authors must be willing to have their article proceed to the final proofreading stage. If the revised manuscript still contains major revisions, it will be returned to the reviewer; if it contains minor revisions, the editor will review and make a final decision. For every decision made, the author is entitled to a clear rationalization.
