Peer Review Process


Manuscripts submitted to DMKP will undergo a selection and evaluation process by the Editorial Board to ensure compliance with the writing guidelines, focus and scope, and that the text has good academic quality. Manuscripts will be reviewed using a dual peer review method in which the authors and reviewers do not know each other's identities.

Review the table. At the desk review stage, manuscripts will be examined to ensure that they meet the writing guidelines, focus, and scope of good academic quality. If they do not meet the requirements, the writer will be given the opportunity to revise their manuscript according to the criteria given. However, there is also the possibility that the text will be immediately rejected.

Peer review. When the manuscript has passed the literature review stage, the manuscript will be sent to two reviewers who are experts in the field of the manuscript submitted. The review process will take place in 2 weeks. Manuscripts that did not make it through the literature review process will not continue to this stage.

Decision of reviewers. The reviewer will provide the following recommendations:

  1. Received; means the manuscript is acceptable for publication
  2. Accepted with minor revisions; means that the manuscript can be accepted for publication after it has been revised in response to reviewers' concerns
  3. Received with major revisions; means that substantive deficiencies in the text, such as data analysis, main theories used, and paragraph rewriting, need to be revised
  4. Rejected; means that the manuscript is not acceptable for publication or commentary that is provided in connection with a very basic problem

The reviewers' decision will be considered by the Editor's Board to determine the next process of the manuscript.

Revision Stage. After the manuscript is received with a small or large revised notation, the manuscript will be returned to the author with a summary review form. For texts received with major revisions, the author is given 3 weeks to revise. As for the manuscripts received with minor revisions, 1 week is allocated for revision. When returning a revised text, the author is required to fill out and attach a summary review form.

Final decision. At this stage, the manuscript will be re-evaluated by the Editor's Board to ensure that the authors have revised it in response to reviewers' concerns. In this final decision, the manuscript can still be rejected if the writer is not serious about making the necessary revisions.

Proofread. After the manuscript is deemed acceptable by the Editor's Board, it will undergo a proofreading process to maintain linguistic quality.

Confirm publication. At this stage, the final layout of the manuscript will be sent back to the author to ensure that the content is in accordance with the writer's writing. At this stage, the author can revise the typos found in the final manuscript. After confirmation from the author is given, the Editorial Secretary will process the manuscript for online publication on the website as well as print publications.
