Peer Review Procces
Nusantara: Journal of Law Studies uses a double anonymous peer review, the initial authors and articles are not displayed until the articles are accepted for further review and publication. Each article sent will be evaluated on the basis of the following considerations:
- The results of scientific work are the work of the Original
- Conformity between methodologies and research topics
- Have a good analysis
- The ability to communicate with readers
- Based on the recommendations of the reviewer
- The normal time for screening and evaluation of manuscripts is four to six months from the date of receipt
- Articles submitted to Nusantara: Journal of Law Studies can use Indonesian, English, or Arabic. However, abstracts must be in Indonesian and English.
Submissions should be prepared under the Author Guidelines. The manuscript may be returned to authors without a scientific assessment if they do not meet all submission requirements, are not in the correct format, found indication of publication malpractice, or cannot be downloaded reliably.
Submissions must represent the original and independent work of the authors. Principal Editor assesses each new submission to determine whether it falls within the general remit of Nusantara: Journal Of Law Studies. We will reject a manuscript without review if it contains insufficient content; it exceeds our word limit or is incorrectly formatted; it is poorly presented and unclear, or there are indication of plagiarism. Principal Editor or Associate Editor will handle manuscripts that pass the initial assessment to oversee the review process for contribution, originality, relevance, and presentation.
Once a manuscript passes the initial checks, it will be assigned to two independent experts for peer review. A Double-blind review is applied, where authors' identities are unknown to reviewers (the editor will delete the author’s name prior to sending it to assign to reviewers). Peer review comments are confidential and will only be disclosed with the express agreement of the reviewer. All manuscripts are subject to peer review, and authors can expect a decision, or an explanation for the delay, within two months of receipt. The corresponding author should submit the revised manuscript within two weeks if a revision is invited. Principal Editors make the final decision based on the information gained through the peer-review process.
As explained in publication ethics, we ensure that the reviewed manuscript is treated confidentially before publication.
