Peer Review Process

Jurnal Elemen is a scientific publication in the sense that the only scientific merits are accepted manuscripts that have never been published. The review process involves the author, editor, section editor, and reviewer. The editor first checks every submitted manuscript if the article meets the focus, scope, guidelines for authors, and the similarity check (should be below 20% in total and below 3% in each item).


The manuscript is continued to the reviewer to review the content of the manuscript. Otherwise, the manuscript will be returned to the author if not meet the criteria above. Each manuscript will at least be examined by two reviewers (a single-blind review), hopefully in  20 - 60 days.


Editors will decide on article acceptance according to Reviewers' comments. The articles sent back to the authors for revision should be returned to the editor immediately. The revised article returned later than 20 days will be considered a new submission. The revised article can be sent to the editorial through the Online Submission Interface.

Jurnal Elemen is published twice a year, in January and July.
