At-Tarbawi : Jurnal Pendidikan, Sosial, dan Kebudayaan adheres to a Double-Blind Peer-Review process that is rapid and fair and also ensures a high quality of articles published. This statement is based on the COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics)Code of Conduct and Best Practice Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers. The decision for publication, amendment, or rejection is based upon their reports/recommendations. In certain cases, the editor may submit an article for review to another, the third reviewer before making a decision, if necessary. At-Tarbawi : Jurnal Pendidikan, Sosial, dan Kebudayaan receives many more submissions than can be published. The Editorial Board may reject a manuscript without peer review if that paper is judged not to meet the journal minimum required qualifications.
The peer-review process is a Double-Blind Review. Both the reviewer and the author are anonymous. Author anonymity prevents any reviewer bias, for example, based on an author's country of origin or previous controversial work. Articles written by prestigious or renowned authors are considered on the basis of the content of their papers, rather than their reputation. To be published in At-Tarbawi : Jurnal Pendidikan, Sosial, dan Kebudayaan, a paper should meet four (4) general criteria:
- Provides strong evidence for its conclusions.
- Novelty (we do not consider meeting report abstracts and preprints on community servers to compromise novelty).
- Of extreme importance to scientists in the specific field.
- Ideally, interesting to researchers in other related disciplines.
In general, to be acceptable, a paper should represent an advance in understanding likely to influence thinking in the field. There should be a discernible reason why the work deserves the visibility of publication in a At-Tarbawi : Jurnal Pendidikan, Sosial, dan Kebudayaan rather than the best of the specialist journals. The reviewers will then submit their reports on the manuscripts along with their recommendation of one of the following actions to the Editor:
- Accept Submission;
- Revisions Required;
- Resubmit for Review;
- Resubmit Elsewhere;
- Decline Submission;
- See comments.
