Peer Review Process

  1. The Indonesian Journal of Environment and Disaster (IJED) Employs a single-blind peer-review method, namely the reviewer's identity will be kept secret from the author, but the author's identity will be known to the reviewer.
  2. Initial Screening. The Editor-in-Chief will screen all submitted manuscripts to determine whether the manuscript abides by the focus and scope of The Indonesian Journal of Environment and Disaster (IJED). Manuscripts that do not meet the basic requirements will be rejected without further review.

  3. If the manuscript meets these two criteria, it is checked for plagiarism or duplicate publication with a Similarity Check. After confirming its result, it is dispatched to two independent reviewers in the field with relevant knowledge.

  4. Peer-review. All manuscripts that pass the initial screening stage will be distributed to experts in related fields to undergo a single-blind peer review.

  5. First Decision. A decision on a peer-reviewed manuscript will be given once both reviewers have submitted their review reports. If both reviewers have differing opinions about the manuscript, the final decision will be handed over to the Editor-in-Chief. At this stage, the author(s) will receive at least one of these decisions: accepted, revision required, or rejected.

  6. Revision Stage. Manuscripts recommended for revision will be returned to the submitting author. The author (s) will have up to 1 month to revise the manuscripts. The revision process will be limited to a maximum of two rounds.

  7. Final Decision. The manuscript will be rejected if the author(s) fails to meet the revision requirements after the second round. All accepted manuscripts will go through the final editing and layout process.
