Peer Review Process
The peer review process at Amerta Nutrition consists of several stages. The first stage is that the author uploads the manuscript and enters metadata to the Amerta Nutrition website. The second stage is that the Editorial Team checks the manuscript regarding scope, ethics, Amerta Nutrition guidelines, and Turnitin. The third stage is that the Editor in Chief determines whether the manuscript will be reviewed or rejected based on the results of checks from the Editorial Team. Before the review process, there is a possibility that the manuscript needs to be revised first by the author, whether minor or major improvements or does not need revision, and can immediately enter the next stage. The fourth stage is that the Editor in Chief assigns Section Editor according to scientific interests and the scope of the manuscript to be reviewed. The fifth stage is that the Section Editor assigns two Reviewers according to the field of nutrition study to review the manuscript using a double-blind review. Double-blind review is a method used during the review process where the identity of the Reviewer is kept secret from the author and vice versa. After that, the Reviewer sends the results of the review in the form of suggestions for improvement. The sixth stage is that the author must improve the manuscript according to the suggestions of the two Reviewers. The seventh stage is that the Editor in Chief determines whether the manuscript meets the requirements for publication or not based on the Reviewer's recommendations. The eighth stage is that the author carries out the proofreading process with an official proofreading provider. Next, the Editorial Team schedules the publication of the manuscript and provides a Letter of Acceptance (LoA) to the author. The ninth stage is when the Editorial Team carries out the copyediting and layout process for the manuscript to be published. The tenth stage is that the manuscript is published via the Amerta Nutrition website. We also accept unpublished Ph.D. work or pre-print content to be processed in Amerta Nutrition.
