Peer Review Process

Jurnal Hukum Ekonomi Islam is applying the double-blind review process. The authors are welcome to suggest at least three potential reviewers along with name and their email addresses. However, the decision to determine the appropriate reviewers is the right of the editor. The approved gallery proof of manuscript will early view online as early as possible upon received from the author and final proofreading by editor in chief. 

The accepted research articles will be available online following the journal peer-reviewing process. The language used in this journal is Bahasa Indonesia or English. The Editor shall inform you about the results of the review as soon as possible, hopefully in 7 to 14 days.

Peer review is designed to assess the contribution, validity, relevance, quality and often the originality of articles for publication. Its ultimate purpose is to maintain the integrity of science by filtering out invalid or poor quality articles.

From a publisher’s perspective, peer review functions as a filter for content, directing better quality articles to better quality journals and so creating journal brands.

Running articles through the process of peer review adds value to them. For this reason, publishers need to make sure that peer review is robust.

Plagiarism and self-plagiarism are not allowed. A software tool may be used so that the submitted articles are screened for plagiarism. Detection of overlapping and similar text is used there and so quotations and appropriate citations have to be used whenever required. The author must only submit a manuscript that is free from plagiarism and academic malpractices. The editor, however, double checks each article before its publication. The first step is to check plagiarism against the offline database by Jurnal Hukum Ekonomi Islam Editorial Board and, secondly, against as much as possible online databases.
