Peer Review Process

JDEB is a peer-reviewed and open-access Dinamika Ekonomi Jurnal Ekonomi dan Bisnis. The journal follows a single-blind review policy.

All manuscripts submitted to JDEB undergo a screening and review process by the Editorial Team to ensure that they follow the scope of the journal and have sufficient academic quality and novelty to interest JDEB readers. 

The steps cover: 

Step 1: Initial review (2 weeks time)

Newly-submitted manuscripts will be filtered by the Editorial Team for compliance with the scope of the JDB and basic stylistic and bibliographic requirements, and for plagiarism using Turnitin software (the paper similarity index should be less than 25%).

If the manuscript is not suitable, it will be rejected without further review. The Editorial Team will email the initial review outcome (desk rejection) to the author.

If the manuscript is suitable, the Editorial Team will email the initial review outcome (accepted for review) to the author.

Step 2: Peer review (2-4 months time)

The manuscript will be assigned to the Editor, who will then send it to at least 2 (two) peer-reviewers in the relevant field to undergo a double-blind peer review.

The review results are: (a) accepted with minor revision, (b) accepted with major revision, (c) accepted as it is, (d) resubmit for review, or (e) rejected.

Decisions on manuscripts will be made after receiving at least two review reports. In cases where the reports differ significantly, the Editor will invite additional reviewers before making a decision.

If accepted, the manuscript will be returned to the author for formatting.

If revisions are required, the author must do them as suggested by the reviewers.

Step 3: Revision stage (2 weeks time)

The revisions will be further evaluated by the Editorial Team.

If further corrections are needed, then the cycle will be repeated. The Editor will ask the author for further revision.

Step 4: Final decision

The revised manuscript will be accepted or rejected. This decision depends on the manuscript has been upgraded to a level suitable for publication. If it has not made the necessary changes, the manuscript will be rejected.

If all revisions are finalized, the manuscript will be accepted. Then the Letter of Acceptance (LoA) is assigned to the article and it is sent to the author.

The final decision to accept the manuscript will be made by the Editor-in-Chief based on recommendations from the Editors/following approval by the Editorial Board.

The entire process from submission to publication may take 3-6 months depending on the authors' efforts to do the revisions and slot for publication from the journal.
