Manuscripts submitted to Interaktif: Jurnal Ilmu-Ilmu Sosial will be reviewed by applying a double-blind peer review method, meaning that neither author(s) nor reviewer(s) can be identified with each other. Authors should follow Interaktif: Jurnal Ilmu-Ilmu Sosial author guidelines and online submission guidelines (here for detailed guidelines).

The following briefly describes the whole peer review process of Interaktif: Jurnal Ilmu-Ilmu Sosial.

Upon receiving an article, the Editor-in-chief nominates an editor who will perform an initial check on the manuscript, including suitability to the journal scope, clarity, presentation, and content. Editors also assign potential reviewers for the manuscript. If the article is eligible, the editor sends CTA (Copyright Transfer Agreement) forms and requests the author(s) to complete and return them to the editor. If not, a rejection notice will be sent to the author(s). Failure to send CTA forms on time will cause a delay in the editorial process for the manuscript.

After receiving the completed forms, the editor designates reviewer(s) to review the manuscript and send the decision and suggestion back within the specified time. As mentioned earlier, Interaktif: Jurnal Ilmu-Ilmu Sosial applies a double-blind peer review method, which prevents both author(s) and reviewer(s) from being mutually identified. Reviewed manuscripts will be rechecked by the editor for final decision, including (1) accept submission, (2) revisions required, (3) resubmit for review, (4) resubmit elsewhere, or (5) decline submission.

Editors will consider the reviewer's decision and suggestion and discuss the final decision in an editorial board meeting with the editor-in-chief. The editor, therefore, in consultation with the editor-in-chief, has full authority for the final decision of a manuscript.

If decision no. 1 has been reached, though it is unlikely, the manuscript will go directly to the copyediting process to be published. However, if minor revisions are required (no. 2), the author(s) must revise their manuscript within specified times before being rechecked by an editor. If, according to the editor, revision is still necessary, the process can be repeated several times until the manuscript satisfies the editor. Eligible manuscripts will be sent to the copy editor for layouting before publication.

Decisions no. 3, 4, and 5, in principle, mean that the manuscript is not eligible to be published in Interaktif: Jurnal Ilmu-Ilmu Sosial. Therefore, the editor will notify the author(s) about the rejection and, in particular condition, suggest accordingly the following possible options (as in decision no. 3 or 4).



This journal provides immediate open-access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global knowledge exchange.
