Peer Review Process

Publication of articles in Jurnal Nasional Teknik Elektro (JNTE) is dependent solely on scientific validity and coherence as judged by our editors and/or peer reviewers, who will also assess whether the writing is comprehensible and whether the work represents a useful contribution to the field. JNTE acknowledged the effort and suggestions made by its reviewers. 

Initial evaluation of manuscripts

The Editor will first evaluate all manuscripts submitted. Those rejected at this stage are insufficiently original, have serious scientific flaws, or are outside the  scope of JNTE. Those that meet the minimum criteria are passed on to experts for review. At this stage, editors will check for possible similarities in submitted articles compared to other periodicals, journals, and conference proceedings previously published. The tool used is Turnitin similarity checker.

Peer review

Submitted manuscripts will generally be reviewed by two to three experts who will be asked to evaluate whether the manuscript is scientifically sound and coherent, whether it duplicates the already published works, and whether or not the manuscript is sufficiently clear for publication.

Review process of the manuscript at JNTE is conducted using double blind review process i.e. authors do not know the reviewers of their paper and reviewers do not know the author(s) of the manuscript that they review.

Review reports

Reviewers are asked to evaluate whether the manuscript:

  • Is original by stating the objectives and gap clearly
  • Is methodologically sound
  • Has results/findings which are clearly presented and support the conclusions
  • Correctly references previous relevant work
  • Reviewers are not expected to correct or copyedit manuscripts. Language correction is not part of the peer review process.


Reviewers advise the editor, who is responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the article. The Editors will reach a decision based on these reports and, where necessary, they will consult with members of the Editorial Board. Editor’s decision is final.
