Peer Review Process

TIERS Information Technology Journal has a publishing frequency of 2 times a year, in the period of June and December all articles published through a peer review process by the Board of Editors and Reviewers, both internal and external editors and reviewers.

The Peer-Review Process in this journal begins with being related to the accuracy of fulfilling the requirements of the Author Guidelines or article writing guidelines and journal template reviews by the Board of Editors or the Editorial Board, both internally and externally. Editors who have a track record are in charge of carefully checking and ensuring that the articles being reviewed meet the Author Guidelines and Journal Templates. The next stage is the editor in charge of providing the assessment results by filling out the assessment results form or giving notes. The next process, the editorial team is then tasked with returning the article according to the results of the review from the Board of Editors when the article still does not meet the Author Guidelines or Journal Templates for revision by the author.

In the review process by the Editorial Team, a study was also carried out regarding similarity checking using Turnitin. Articles that have met the requirements of the review process from the editor team, then continue with the review process by the reviewer. The editor is in charge of sending articles electronically to reviewers, both internal and external.

The peer review process, conducted by reviewers, involves a thorough evaluation of the article's content, aiding authors through constructive comments and insights pertaining to the current state of the art and other relevant substantive components. The review process adheres to a Double Blind Review approach, ensuring a fair and impartial assessment. The ethical review process scrutinizes the article's substance, and criticism and input are provided objectively. Reviewers are expected to present their views and input clearly, underpinned by well-defined arguments.

The review process typically spans approximately 3-4 weeks, during which reviewers meticulously assess the article's quality, relevance, and contribution to the field. It is crucial to emphasize that any critique should be directed towards the content and scholarly merit of the work, and reviewers are strongly discouraged from engaging in unethical and inappropriate actions such as making personal criticisms of the author. The primary goal of this journal's review process is to maintain the highest standards of objectivity, professionalism, and integrity in the evaluation of submitted articles.

The reviewer is tasked with in detail identifying the relevance of legal documents, concepts, theories and the results of previous relevant studies used by the author to review and analyze. The reviewer is also tasked with identifying relevant reading sources or study results that have not been quoted by the author.

The entire review process is carried out electronically. After the peer review process from the reviewers is complete, the Journal Editor is tasked with deciding which articles are worthy of publication, taking into account the results of the initial review from the editors team, the validity of the articles from the reviewers, the benefits and contributions of the substance of the articles.
