Peer Review

A manuscript submitted to the IJE will be reviewed by at least two peer reviewers. The Editor-in-Chief and Editorial Assistants will choose an Associate Editor based on the scope of the manuscript and request Associate Editor for minimum two reviewers. After the review process has been completed, the Associate Editor would take the final decision on each manuscript by taking into consideration all the comments from the reviewers.

IJE requires all the submitted manuscripts to follow a double-blind peer review by appropriate, well- qualified and responsible reviewers whom have been chosen by the Associate Editor. IJE will not reveal the identity of reviewers to the author(s) and cover any identifying marks to maintain the reviewer’s anonymity, or vice versa.

Evaluation Criteria

The review form will be attached using .pdf format with the manuscripts from the Publisher’s email. In your review, please consider the following aspects as you evaluate the overall quality of the manuscript:

  1. Background: the rationale of the study/research
  2. Methods: the appropriateness of methods
  3. Results: the presentation result
  4. Conclusion: the conclusions, result analysis, and interpretations

Evaluation results

There are four recommendations that can be chosen by the reviewers and Associate Editor after the evaluation:

  1. Accept without revision
  2. Minor revision
  3. Major revision
  4. Rejected 

The “Accept without revision” means that the manuscript will be prepared into a publication format. For “Minor revision”, revised submission will only be reviewed by the Associate Editor. For a “Major revision”, revised submission will be given to the reviewers again. Meanwhile, For  “Rejected”  revised submissions will follow the review process from the beginning again.

Revised Submissions

Revised manuscripts will be informed through email. Regardless of the initial submission file type, you should provide us with an editable file after you have revised. To avoid unnecessary errors,  you are strongly advised to use the 'spell-check' and 'grammar-check' functions of your word processor.
