Peer Review Process

Inspirasi & Strategi (INSPIRAT): Jurnal Kebijakan Publik & Bisnis adopts A Blind Review Process That Is Closely Monitored By The Editor. Editors Conduct Editorial Reviews To Assess The Quality And Type Of Submissions Before Submitting Them To The Review Process. Manuscripts That Do Not Meet Scientific Standards Will Not Be Considered For The Review Process. Authors Are Expected To Heed The Instructions For The Author And Also Indicate The Category In Which They Publish If Not A Review Article. The Editor Will Also Check For Readability, Use Of Grammar, And May Request Resubmission If The Paper Is Rated Poorly Within These Parameters.

The Editors Seek References For Suggestions On The Scientific Merits As Well As The Possible Appeal Of This Paper To A Broad Scientometric Readership. The Editor Will Contact The Referee After The Paper Has Been Sent To Them, With Periodic Reminders Of Their Due Date. After All The Reviews Have Been Done In-House, The Editor In Charge Of The Manuscript Will Most Likely Make A Decision Within A Day Or Two. The Editor Will Then Contact The Author Regarding The Decision. Reviewers Invest Valuable Time In The Belief That They Are Making An Important Contribution To The Scientific Process.

Authors Can Disagree With Reviewers Who Are Supported By Rational Explanations That Will Be Checked By The Editor And Can Be Sent Back To The Referee. However, Offensive Comments On Reviewer Comments Will Be Subject To Unpublishing

Editorial Assessment Is Also Carried Out After The Refereeing Process Is Complete Before Finally Recommending Papers For Journals Or Vice Versa.

All Efforts Were Made To Complete The Entire Process Within Three Months Of Submission With The First Decision Being Made On Average Within 30 Days Of Informing The Status Of Their Articles.

The Entire Process Of Reviewing Articles Submitted To The Makintek Journal Is Carried Out Online And Digitally. Authors Must Use An Online Submission System To Submit Their Manuscripts. Only If They Are Unable To Do So Should They Contact The Editor By Email.
