Peer Review Process

JURNAL SCIENTIA adopts a blind review process that is closely monitored by the editors.

The editors conduct an editorial review before submitting it to the selection process to determine the content and form of the submission.

. Manuscripts not meeting the scientific standards will not be considered for the reviewing process.

Writers are required to pay attention to the writers' guidelines as well as specify the genre they are writing in if it is not a Summary paper. Editors may still review the readability, grammatical use, and may call for resubmission if the documents in these criteria do poorly.

Editors request referees to advise on the scientific merit as well as the likely appeal the paper will have for broad scientometric's readership.

If the report is submitted to them, editors will be in contact with the referees, with daily updates of their due date. When all the reviews are in-use, the manuscript editor will most certainly conclude within one to two days. The Editor will then contact the corresponding author with the decision. Reviewers invest precious time in the belief that they are making significant contributions to the scientific process.
The authors will vary from the reviewer comments backed by reasonable argument that the Editor may investigate and can be sent back to the said referee.  Negative remarks on the remarks of the reviewers will therefore be subject to the cancelation of publication.

Editorial assessment is also done after the referee process is completed before finally recommending the paper for the journal or otherwise.

All efforts are made to complete the whole process within three months from submission with the first decision on an average done within ten days to inform the status of their article.

The entire review process for the papers submitted to JURNAL SCIENTIA is conducted automatically and online. 
Authors are expected to submit their manuscript using the online submission method. And if they can't do so, should they contact the Editor via email.

Submission & Peer Review Process (Key Steps)

  • The appropriate materials are provided by the Author, including copyright form and separate cover letter.
  • The article submitted is first reviewed by the Editor (s) as to whether it fits within the general scope of the journal and has sufficient merit. Editor(s) often pay attention to readability, syntax, and use before officially considering beginning the review process.
  • There would also be professional rejection if the writers in the main manuscript give their names and affiliations; the tables and figures, as shown in the text, are incomplete or have not followed the writer's directions.
  • The Finished submission is sent out to two or three reviewers following initial acceptance by the Publisher.
  • The reviewer checks the report and returns it for submission to the Editorial Office.
  • The Editor-in-Chief issues reviews of writers following the original review.
  • Requests the writers to reply to reviews and make the required corrections.
  • The report is submitted for re-examination.
  • Editor-in-Chief can approve, refuse, ignore minor changes, or submit them out for the third scrutiny.
  • The Author may apply the final edition if approved. The edition is being added to the Publisher's "in-press" list.
  • The Publisher would submit the galleys to writers before printing. No edits can be made after approval of the galleys.

  2. Data Access and Retention:
    Authors are asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such data (consistent with the ALPSP-STM Statement on Data and Databases), if practicable, and should, in any event, be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication.
  3. Originality and Plagiarism: The writers should ensure that they have published wholly original works and that this has been appropriately referenced or quoted if the writers have used the work and words of other people.

    An author should not usually publish manuscripts in more than one journal or primary publication, which describe essentially the same study. 
  5. Acknowledgment of Sources:

  6. Authorship of the Paper:
    Authorship may be limited to those who have contributed significantly to the implementation, design, implementation, or analysis of the published research. Both those who have contributed substantially should be classified as co-authors. Where some have taken part in any of the practical aspects of the research study, they should be remembered or identified as collaborators. The referring Author should ensure that all applicable co-authors and no unauthorized co-authors are included in the paper and that the final version of the report has been examined and accepted by all co-authors and has committed to its publication.
    Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest:
    Both writers shall report any financial or other potential conflicts of interest in their manuscript that may be considered to affect the effects or understanding of their document. They should reveal all sources of financial funding for the initiative.

Duties of Editors

The validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers must always drive such decisions. The editors may be directed by the findings of the editorial board of the publication and governed by specific legal provisions that are then in place for libel, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. In making this decision, the editors can consult with other editors or reviewers.
  5. Review of Manuscripts:
    The Editor must ensure that the Editor initially evaluates each manuscript for originality. The Editor should organize and use peer review fairly and wisely. In the material for authors, editors should clarify their peer review procedures and also suggest which sections of the publication are peer-reviewed. For papers submitted for publication, the Author should use qualified peer reviews by choosing individuals with ample experience and excluding others with conflicts of interest.

Duties of Reviewers

  1. Contribution to Editorial Decisions:
    Peer evaluation helps the Publisher in making editorial decisions, and can also support the Author in developing the paper by editorial contact with the Author.
  2. Promptness:
    Any appointed referee who feels unqualified to review the study published in a manuscript or who suspects it would be challenging to check it immediately should alert the Publisher and excuse himself from the review process.
  3. Standards of Objectivity:

Screening Plagiarism

Plagiarism, whether intentional or not, is a gross offense. Plagiarism is the copying of thoughts, documents, records, and other artistic works (e.g., tables, statistics, and graphs) and displaying them without proper attribution as original analysis. We describe plagiarism as a situation where a paper reproduces another article with, and without permission, at least 15 percent resemblance.

If proof of plagiarism is uncovered before / after approval or after the paper is written, the Author may be given a chance to refute. If the reasons are not considered acceptable, the manuscript will be retracted, and the Author will be barred by the liable Editor (s) from publishing papers for a time to be decided.

Screening for plagiarism

Plagiat checker x will be used to screen the manuscript submitted in this journal for plagiarism. Plagiate Checker x provides tools to help manage originality and prevent plagiarism, check writing for quotation errors, or improper copying with custom reviews.
