PEER REVIEW PROCESS

J-ISACC Journal of Islamic Accounting Competency operates a rigorous peer-review process. In most cases, this is a single-blind assessment with at least two independent reviewers, followed by a final acceptance/rejection decision by the Editor-in-Chief or another academic editor approved by the Editor-in-Chief. The Editor-in-Chief is responsible for the academic quality of the publication process, including acceptance decisions, approval of Guest Editors and special issue topics, and new Editorial Board members.

All manuscripts sent for publication in our journals are strictly and thoroughly peer-reviewed by experts (including research and review articles, automatic submissions, and invited papers). The Managing Editor of the journal will perform an initial check of the manuscript's suitability upon receipt. The Editorial Office will then organize the peer-review process completed by independent experts and collect at least two review reports per manuscript. We ask our authors for adequate revisions (with the second round of peer-review if necessary) before a final decision is made. The Editor makes the final decision. Every submitted article will be independently reviewed by two peer reviewers (Double-blind). The decision for publication, amendment, or rejection is based upon their reports/recommendations.  After being reviewed, there will be four kinds of editor decisions based on the reviewers' advice:

  • Accept Submission: The submission will be accepted without revisions.
  • Revisions Required: The submission will be accepted after minor changes have been made.
  • Resubmit for Review: The submission needs to be re-worked, but it may be accepted with significant changes. It will require a second round of review.
  • Resubmit Elsewhere: Articles cannot be accepted because the substance of the article is incompatible with the field of science.
  • Decline Submission: The submission will not be published in the journal.
  • See Comment: see the feedback from the reviewer for the Editor.

Articles may be accepted without revision, minor revisions, major revisions, or rejected. The results of reviewed articles by reviewers will be notified to the author via email. The author can revise his article based on the reviewers' suggestion (and Editor) no later than ten weeks after the email notification.
