Peer Review Process

 

The practice of peer review is to ensure that the highest quality science is published. It is an objective process at the heart of good scholarly publishing and is carried out on all reputable scientific journals. Our referees therefore play a vital role in maintaining the high standards of TEKNOSIA and all manuscripts are peer reviewed following the procedure outlined below.

Initial manuscript evaluation
The Editor and editorial manager first evaluate all manuscripts. Submissions rejected at this stage are insufficiently original, have serious scientific flaws, have poor grammar or English language, or are outside the aims and scope of the journal. Those that meet the minimum criteria are passed on to at least 2 experts for review.

Authors of manuscripts rejected at this stage will be informed within 2 weeks of receipt.

Type of Peer Review
This journal employs double blind reviewing, where both the referee and author remain anonymous throughout the process.

How the referee is selected
Referees are matched to the paper according to their expertise. TEKNOSIA holds a database of reviewers which is linked to a set of keywords. These are matched to the keywords provided by the author when submitting a paper.

Referee reports
Referees are asked to evaluate whether the manuscript:

  •     Is original
  •     Is methodologically sound
  •     Follows appropriate ethical guidelines
  •     Has results which are clearly presented and support the conclusions
  •     Correctly references previous relevant work

This evaluation is done on the basis of the following criteria:

  1. Overall quality and scientific originality (including quality of literature used). Reviews needs to take into account the quality of the literature and its impact on findings. Authors should attempt to review all relevant literature on a topic, including cross-disciplinary work.
  2. Theoretical framework; conceptual rationale; pragmatic grounding.
  3. Clear definition of the research questions/purpose. The purpose of any article should be to connect the particular problem to a larger context of TEKNOSIA. Such purpose should be clearly explained and research questions should be listed briefly and clearly.
  4. Research design, data sources, sampling, procedure.
  5. Research method and instruments.
  6. Quality and appropriateness of the analysis. A review should go beyond description to include analysis and critiques of theories, methods, and conclusions represented in the literature. This analysis should also examine which perspectives are included or excluded in a body of work and should be reflective in nature.
  7. Clarity of the results and appropriateness of the interpretations.
  8. Organisation, structure and brevity.
  9. Significance for theory, practice and policy; relevance to the field of sciences and technology. The article should seek to inform and/or illuminate questions important to the field of sciences and technology, pure and interdisciplinary. Such questions may be broadly based, but they should have implications for scientific and technological problems. The article should be seen as an important contribution to science and a relevant source of information to different academicians dealing with the scientific and technological problems.
  10. Style and language. The article must be well written and conform to style of the publication manual of TEKNOSIA. Authors should avoid the use of unexplained jargon and should write in Oxford English or Kamus Besar Bahasa Indonesia. For more information on style and format, see the Guide for Authors.

Referees are not expected to correct or copyedit manuscripts. Language correction is not part of the peer review process.

How long does the review process take?
Typically the manuscript will be reviewed within 3 months. Should the referees' reports contradict one another or a report is unnecessarily delayed a further expert opinion will be sought. All our referees sign a conflict of interest statement. Revised manuscripts are usually returned to the initial referees within 1 week. Referees may request more than one revision of a manuscript.

Final report
A final decision to accept or reject the manuscript will be sent to the author along with any recommendations made by the referees, and may include verbatim comments by the referees.

Editor's Decision is final
Referees advise the editor, who is responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the article.
