Peer Review Process

IEM : International Journal of Economics and Management has a two-stage review process.

The first stage is an initial editorial review (also known as Desktop Review, Screening Review) by one of the section editors or editor in chief, resulting in either a decision to send for peer review (stage 2) or an editorial rejection. 

If the paper is passed to stage 2, a Section Editor will be assigned to manage the review process. Here, two members of Acitya: Journal of Teaching and Education review panel will be assigned to review the paper. Our review panel comprises researchers and practitioners drawn from section editors and other experienced researchers. Reviewers selected to review an article are chosen on the basis of their experience, expertise and interests aligned to the focus of the article.

Acitya: Journal of Teaching and Education uses a single-blind review process. In it, reviewers know the identity of authors, but authors don’t know the identity of reviewers. No direct communication is allowed between the reviewer and the author.  

The article will be reviewed against the following criteria:

  1. Contribution to advancing knowledge of Teaching and Education
  2. Quality of critical engagement with relevant literature (literature review and discussion)
  3. Clarity of research and/or development goals
  4. Clarity and justification of appropriate methodology
  5. Quality of empirical data, analysis, presentation and interpretation of results
  6. Inclusion of appropriate implications for further research, theory, practice and/or policy.
  7. Quality of writing (including structure, writing style, clarity of expression)

The Editor shall inform you of the results of the review as soon as possible, hopefully in 30 to 60 days.

The editor will run a plagiarism check using turnitin for the submitted articles before sending it to the reviewers. We do not process any plagiarised contents. If an article has over 20% of plagiarism based on the result of the check, the article will be rejected. The journal is carried out by using Mendeley or Endnote as a Tool Reference Manager. The language used in this journal is English. 

The final decision of acceptance of the article will be made by the Editor in accordance with the Reviewer's comments. Articles sent back to the author for revision should be returned to the editor without delay. Revised articles returned more than 20 days will be considered as new submissions. Articles submitted through the open journal system

All articles published on an Open Access basis will be immediately and permanently free for everyone to read and download. We continue to work closely with our author community to select the best license option, currently set for this journal is Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) 4.0.
