Duties of Reviewers

Reviewers are the bloodline of the scientific journals; thus, we place them on the higher ground. The review process will be initiated should the article passes the initial screening by the managing editor. This initial screening will clarify:

1. The suitability of the journal with the author guidelines or template;

2. The potential contribution of the paper to the pools of articles in the Jurnal Minds: Manajemen Ide dan Inspirasi. 

3. The appointment of the acting editor on the appointed manuscript according to their field of interest.

The appointed editor will ensure the manuscript is ready for double-blind peer review. Furthermore, he/she will select the reviewers according to their research interests and availability. One manuscript will be handled by a minimum of two independent reviewers. Editor-in-charge will bridge the communication between the reviewers and authors. Specifically, the duty of the reviewers are:

1. Providing the early recommendation regarding the English quality of the article

2. Providing substantive inputs for the improvement of the papers. Specifically, the papers must meet the standardized abstract information, the prescriptions of the research problems, the potential contribution of the uploaded papers to the current field of knowledge, the applicability and the details of the research methods, and the information in the article results (how the information is provided in the body of the manuscript, table, figure, or formulas. The articles must provide a substantive discussion regarding the articles' findings. 

3. Providing recommendations regarding the references' quality and sufficiency.

4. Providing recommendations to accept, revise, resubmit, or decline the manuscripts.

The editor-in-charge will communicate the reviewers' comments to the authors. This process aims to ensure that each comment is addressed and highlighted by the authors. The editor will decide whether the articles are accepted, revised, resubmitted, or declined following the reviewers' comments. If there are conflicting decisions between reviewers, the editor may create another round with independent reviewers to clarify the discourses. The editor may also take an independent decision regarding that article. The editor will record the final decision and communicate the results with the managing editor. The editorial processes are also comprised of the copyediting and proofreading steps. Should all steps are met, the journal may be published.
