|Peer Review Process|

Research articles or Manuscripts submitted to IRJE are initially reviewed by the editors for general fit with the IRJE focus and scope and for the writing quality. Only those research articles meeting the IRJE focus and scope will be sent to reviewers for a double blind review. Review time is typically 4-6 months. Two reviewers will be assigned to evaluate the research articles or manuscripts on the basis of their expertise. Reviewers are expected to return their reviews within 4 weeks. A third reviewer will be appointed in case one of the reviewers disagrees upon the quality of the research article for publication. The assigned reviewers evaluate the research articles by using a standard manuscript evaluation form. They are required to treat all the information in the research articles as confidential. Views of the assigned reviewers serve as a guide to IRJE editors to make a final decision on the research articles. Final decision always belongs to IRJE editors. Those manuscripts that are judged by the editors and assigned editors to be inappropriate are rejected promptly without external reviews.

The editors then make a decision based on the reviewers' advice, from among several possibilities:

|Accept as written without any revisions|

|Accept with minor revisions (a second round of review is not necessary)|  

|Accept with major revisions (a second round of review will be necessary)|

|Reject (the paper is not suitable for publication)|

|Publication Frequency|

IRJE publishes 2 issues per year.

|Open Access Policies|

Publishing in IRJE is free of charges. However, we have found that more and more papers have ignored the standard of writing including the references, citations, writing mechanism, and formatting that make editors spend more time to deal with those issues which influence the quality of our journal. Since our journal is not funded, we will charge authors if they cannot revise the issues.

IRJE (Indonesian Research Journal in Education) provides direct open access to its content. Our publisher, Universitas Jambi, agrees to the Budapest Open Access Initiative definition of Open Access:

“By “open access” to [peer-reviewed research literature], we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.”
