Peer Review Process

All submitted manuscripts are read by Editor in Chief of the PADANG INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON EDUCATION, ECONOMICS, BUSINESS AND ACCOUNTING (PICEEBA) initially for desk evaluation. Unsuitable submitted manuscripts in terms of focus and scope would be rejected promptly without external review. Manuscripts evaluated to be of potential interest to our readership would be sent to the reviewers. The editors then make a decision based on the reviewer’s recommendation from among several possibilities: rejected, require major revision, need minor revision, or accepted. Determination of the article that will be presented in PICEEBA carried out through double-blind peer review.

The stages of the review process applied at PICEEBA are as the following:

  • Submission of manuscripts. It is only processed via online at the website:
  • The submitted manuscripts would be checked whether it complies PICEEBA author guidelines and template for submission, also whether the manuscript matches the focus and scope. If appropriate, the next process will be carried out. The editor will notify immediately via email.
  • The manuscripts would be checked with Turnitin (similarity check). We really consern about plagiarism issues.
  • The manuscripts would be reviewed by an assigned editor to find out whether it contributes sufficiently to the development of knowladge. The manuscripts that qualify at this stage would be proceeded to the review stage by two peer reviewers.
  • The manuscript that is accepted with revisions (minor or major), it would contain comments from peer reviewers and would be returned to the author for revision.
  • The author is given the time to revise the manuscript no later than one month.

Manuscripts that have gone through final revisions and accepted by the editor would be presented in the PICEEBA.
