Peer Review Process

Authors must submit manuscript through the system for being considered published in the journal published by Geographical Information System and Learning Research Group, University of Jember. For being published, manuscript must go through a peer review process (blind-reviewing process). We only publish articles that have been reviewed and approved by highly qualified researchers with expertise in a field appropriate.

The acceptance or rejection of manuscript submitted by author(s) will be decided by the editorial boards, which is based on the review results. The first screening is the content/scope as well as the novelty from the article submitted, which is done by the editor. After passing the first screening, to get fair reviewing process, our journal usually proceeds each article with at least 2 reviewers.

There are no communications between authors and reviewers during the reviewing process. Also, there are no communications between authors and editors regarding the rejection decision.

Authors whose papers are accepted, revised, rejected will be informed with the results from the reviewers.
