Peer Review Proccess

The publication of articles in Jurnal Akuntansi dan Pasar Modal (JAPM) depends solely on scientific validity and coherence as assessed by our editors and / or peer reviewers, who will also assess whether the writing can be understood and whether the work is a useful contribution to that field. Jurnal Akuntansi dan Pasar Modal (JAPM) acknowledges the efforts and suggestions made by its reviewers.


Initial Evaluation of Manuscripts

The editor will first evaluate all submitted manuscripts. Although it is rare, it is worthy to receive extraordinary manuscripts at this stage. Those who are rejected at this stage are not original enough, have serious scientific weaknesses, or are outside the objectives and scope of Jurnal Akuntansi dan Pasar Modal (JAPM). Those who meet the minimum criteria are forwarded to experts for review.


Types of Peer Reviews

Submitted texts will generally be reviewed by two to three experts who will be asked to evaluate whether the text is scientific and reasonable, whether it is a duplicate of the work already published, and whether the text is clear enough to be published. The method is blind peer review.


Review Report

The reviewer is asked to evaluate whether the manuscript:

  • Original by clearly stating goals and gaps
  • Methodologically sound
  • Follow appropriate ethical guidelines
