Peer Review Process Steps

Articles sent to Conciencia will be examined first by the editor in chief to determine whether the contents of the article are in accordance with the focus and scope of the journal. If the article content is out of scope, the editor in chief will immediately reject the article.

If the article has followed the focus and scope of the journal, the editor in chief will assign an editor to filter the article for plagiarism using the plagiarism checker. If there is a lot of plagiarism that occurs in the article (more than 20 percent), then the editor will immediately reject the article. But if plagiarism is still considered small (less than 20 percent) then, the article will proceed to the review process.

The editors will assign two reviewers based on the concentration expertise discussed in the article. Reviewers are experts in the field of Islamic Education. The review process is a peer-double-blind review type where the reviewer does not know the identity of the author or reviewer or not.

Reviews from two reviewers will be sent to the author. The author must revise the article based on feedback from two reviewers.

After the revision was sent to Conciencia, the editor along with the editorial board members and other editor in chief made a decision whether to accept, reject or consider the article to have a second session of the review process. The author will be notified when the Editor decides to do a further review.

If the article is accepted, the editor will send a Letter of Acceptance to the author through the appropriate author.

Furthermore, to maintain the credibility of reviewers, during the article review process, the author is not charged.
