The author(s) may suggest a maximum of 10 potential reviewers to review their paper (please include the following information, e.g. title, name, institution, postage address, and email address). Authors can also propose unwanted individuals/reviewer not to review their article (maximum 5 researchers with a reasonable explanation). Reviewers must have the Scopus-ID or Researcher-ID (Thomson Reuters) or recorded as a first author in this journal with (minimum) a doctoral degree.
Reviewers may also be invited from journals published by major publishers such as Elsevier or Springer. They must, however, come from different institutions with authors; preferably originating from different countries. Reviewers must not be subject to a conflict of interest involving the author(s) or manuscript(s). Nevertheless, the editor is not obligated to use any reviewers suggested by the author(s).
All manuscripts submitted to JPFA will be read and reviewed blindly (double blind peer review) by (a minimum of) 2 peer reviewers who are expert in their field. Manuscript Service Flow can be seen in this page. The Editor may assign the Reviewer(s) from the JPFA peer reviewers, Author(s)’ suggestions, other researchers, and/or other JPFA Editorial Member. The acceptance of an manuscripts depend on the novelty of the research, significance of the article, truth of the content, the degree of originality, the clarity of description, and the conformity with the objective of the journal.
Manuscript may be accepted without revision, minor revisions, major revision, or even rejected. The final decision of manuscript acceptance shall be made by the Editorial Board according to reviewers’ critical comments. The results of reviewed articles by reviewers will be notified to the author via email.
