Peer Review Process

Jurnal Respirasi uses double-blind review, which means that both reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. The article review process usually takes an average of 10 weeksThis review period depends on the editors' and reviewers' duration in reviewing the manuscript. The reviewer’s decision will be considered by the Board of Editors to determine the ensuing process of the manuscript. 

In the case when two independent peer-reviewers have opposing decisions, the third peer-reviewer will be asked to review the manuscript and his/her decision will be final for determining whether the manuscript is accepted or rejected. The time allocated for the third peer-reviewer is two (2) weeks.

The practice of peer review is to ensure that only good manuscripts are published. It is an objective process at the heart of good scholarly publishing and is performed by all reputable scientific journals. All manuscripts in Jurnal Respirasi follow the procedures as shown below:

Peer review process: The manuscript that passed the initial review stage will be sent to at least two reviewers who are experts in the field of the submitted manuscript. The reviewers will be provided with an assessment form and encouraged to comment directly on the text of the manuscript. Two weeks is the maximum time for the review process. This process can be performed in one or more rounds.

Review decision: The reviewer’s decision will be considered by the Editors to determine the subsequent process of the manuscript. The following recommendations will be provided by the reviewers:

  • Accept submission; means that the manuscript is acceptable for publication without any revisions or changes
  • Revision required; means that the manuscript is acceptable for publication after being revised in response to the reviewers’ comments
  • Resubmit for review; means that substantive inadequacies in the manuscript, such as data analysis or research variable, type of research, the main theory used, and rewriting of paragraphs need to be revised and resubmitted
  • Decline submission; means that the manuscript cannot be accepted for publication because it is not within the scope of the required research or the review provided is related to a very basic problem

Revision stage: After the manuscript is received with a revision note or re-submission, it will be sent back to the author with the review form from the reviewers and the revision form. The time given to revise the manuscript is one week. When returning the revised manuscript, the author is required to fill in and attach the manuscript revision form provided. If the revised manuscript does not match the comments given by the reviewer, the manuscript will be returned to the author for revision.

Final decision: The final decision on the acceptability, or otherwise, of manuscripts will be taken by the Editor in Chief based on reviewers' comments presented during an editorial board meeting. Scanning for instances of plagiarism present in manuscripts will be conducted by means of Turnitin software. The manuscript can still be rejected if the author is not serious about making the necessary revisions.

Proofreading process: After the manuscript is approved and accepted by the Editor in Chief based on reviewers' comments presented during an editorial board meeting, the manuscript will undergo a proofreading process using native speaker services to maintain the quality of the language. The list of proofreading services can be seen here.

Publication confirmation: At this stage, the final layout of the manuscript will be presented to the author to ensure that the content is in accordance with the author’s writing. The author may revise any typographical error found in the final manuscript. Proof of all manuscripts will be provided to the corresponding author. The proof should be read carefully and checked against the typed manuscript. The corrections may be returned within seven (7) days. Once confirmation from the author is given, the Editor will process the manuscript for online publication on the website.

Rejection confirmation: If the manuscript is rejected, the author will be notified by the Editor in Chief with a statement of reasons for rejection.
