Reviewer Process

PEER REVIEW PROCESS

All articles submitted to JASF (Journal of Accounting and Strategic Finance) will be reviewed in the double-blind review method. Reviewers are unaware of the identity of the authors, and authors are also unaware of the identity of reviewers (double-blind review method). In general, each article will be reviewed by at least two reviewers.

Articles submitted to JASF  will be processed first under Editor's Evaluation. Only articles that fit within the scope of the JASF and comply with instructions to the authors will be preceded further into the review process. Editor's evaluation can take up to 1 month.

After the Editor's Evaluation, the author must revise the manuscript according to the editors' suggestions. After that, the revised article will be reviewed. The review process can take from 1 to 3 months. However, the reviewers will get a chance to review for 4 weeks. When the Reviewer's report has been completed and the author revises the manuscript, he/she will be notified of the Editor's decision to publish in JASF and any necessary modifications.

The response of the reviewers will be the basis for the Editor to conclude:
1. Revisions Required
2. Accept Submission
3. Decline Submission

Articles that have passed the review process and are accepted will be published in one of the JASF editions. However, the Editor-in-Chief has the final say and in his/her sole discretion can decide which papers to publish or not to publish.

An article was rejected for publication due to various considerations, including:
1. The article does not fit the scope
2. The article does not follow the rules of writing scientific papers / does not follow the author's guidelines or JASF template
3. The fundamental methodological errors
4. The author refuses to make suggestions for improvements provided by the reviewer without a logical basis.
5. There are indications of plagiarism of more than 30%

The article review process usually takes 4 to 16 weeks. This review period depends on the editors' and reviewers' duration in reviewing the manuscript. If the author does not get confirmation from JASF for a long time, the author can confirm by email at jasf.editor@upnjatim.ac.id or via WhatsApp to Diah Hari Suryaningrum at +6281703170900.
