All manuscripts received must be original and will be subject to a double-blind review process. If the manuscript meets the basic journal standards, it will be proceeded with the peer review process. In the reviewing process, there are at least two reviewers for each manuscript for the related topic. If there is a conflicting opinion between reviewer 1 and reviewer 2 regarding the decision of the article, reviewer 3 must be added as an editor's consideration whether the article is worth publishing or not. Two weeks will be needed for a reviewer to complete one round of the reviewing process. The revision from the author shall include former comments from the reviewer and the author shall notice that the manuscript has been revised. By submitting your paper to Jurnal Biometrika dan Kependudukan (Journal of Biometrics and Population) you are agreeing to originality checks during the peer-review and production processes.

Initial screening 
Editor-in-Chief and Deputy Editor-in-Chief will receive an email notification when a new manuscript is submitted to the open journal system. Editor-in-Chief or Deputy Editor-in-Chief makes initial judgment to the manuscripts, at this point manuscript may be rejected if not meet the basic journal criteria. 

Peer reviews process 
At least 2 reviewers will evaluate the manuscript, invited based on their expertise in the related field, proven by research track records (using researcher profiles in Scopus, Google Scholar, Mendeley, Publons, or ResearchGate). Reviewers are expected to provide an evaluation and comments within 2 weeks. If reviewers do not agree to review or not respond after 1 week, new reviewers will be invited. Reviewers will be provided with an evaluation form. Editor-in-Chief or Deputy Editor-in-Chief considers the reviews and determines whether to accept, reject, or request revision. The decision after the peer-review process will be sent to the authors if at least 2 reviewers have returned the review results. In a case of an editorial member submitting a manuscript, he/she must not be involved in the decision of the manuscript.

Authors revisions 
In the decision letter after the peer-review process, Editors provide recommendations on how to improve the manuscript along with the peer reviewers’ comments. The editors will make a revision request based on the reviewers’ comments or advice, which can be minor or major. In either case, the author has an opportunity to improve the manuscript and submit the revision for another consideration. Generally, authors will be asked to “submit a list of revisions completed” when resubmitting a manuscript. Authors will be given a certain amount of time ranging between 1 to 4 weeks, depending on the review reports. However, if the authors need more time, they could write to the editors asking for an extension. If the revisions are not submitted within time provided, the article will be archived.

Editorial decision
Revised manuscripts may be reevaluated according to our Journal template to ensure that all the peer reviewers’ comments have been properly addressed. If there's no more revisions then the Editor may proceed the paper to the next step of publication.

Copy-editing, layout and proofreading 
Following acceptance, the manuscript will be copy-edited and typeset into pages. Authors may be asked to correct the manuscript according to the results of copy-editing. The authors will be sent PDF page proofs for comment and subsequent approval.

All accepted manuscripts undergo language editing. The partners of the Editorial Office will carry out English editing and proofreading services. However, if the editorial office must make extensive English corrections, the authors must have the manuscript professionally edited (an English language editing service that provides editing confirmation certificates).

Making changes to articles after publication
It is very important that authors carefully check final PDF proofs before publication as we cannot make corrections to published articles.
