Peer Review Process

Jurnal Potensi has a two-stage review process.

The first stage is an initial editorial review (also known as Desktop Review, Screening Review) by one of the section editors or editor in chief, resulting in either a decision to send for peer review (stage 2) or an editorial rejection.

If the paper is passed to stage 2, a Section Editor will be assigned to manage the review process. Here, two members of Jurnal Potensi review panel will be assigned to review the paper. Our review panel comprises researchers and practitioners drawn from section editors and other experienced researchers. Reviewers selected to review an article are chosen on the basis of their experience, expertise and interests aligned to the focus of the article.

Jurnal Potensi uses a single-blind review process. In it, reviewers know the identity of authors, but authors don’t know the identity of reviewers. No direct communication is allowed between the reviewer and the author.

The article will be reviewed against the following criteria:

Contribution to advancing knowledge of Teaching and Education
Quality of critical engagement with relevant literature (literature review and discussion)
Clarity of research and/or development goals
Clarity and justification of appropriate methodology
Quality of empirical data, analysis, presentation and interpretation of results
Inclusion of appropriate implications for further research, theory, practice and/or policy.
Quality of writing (including structure, writing style, clarity of expression)
The Editor shall inform you of the results of the review as soon as possible, hopefully in 30 to 60 days.

The editor will run a plagiarism check using turnitin for the submitted articles before sending it to the reviewers. We do not process any plagiarised contents. If an article has over 20% of plagiarism based on the result of the check, the article will be rejected. The journal is carried out by using Mendeley or Endnote as a Tool Reference Manager. The language used in this journal is Indonesian.

The accepted research articles will be available online (free download) following the journal peer-reviewing process. The final decision of articles acceptance will be made by Editors according to Reviewers' comments. The articles sent back to the authors for revision should be returned to the editor without delay. The revised article returned later than 20 days will be considered as new submissions. The revised article can be sent to the editorial through the Online Submission Interface on our online Journal website.

All articles published Open Access will be immediately and permanently free for everyone to read and download. We are continuously working with our author communities to select the best choice of license options, currently being defined for this journal as  Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism is the unethical act of copying someone else’s prior ideas, processes, results or words without explicit acknowledgement of the original author and source. Self-plagiarism occurs when an author utilizes large part of his/her own previously published work without using appropriate references. This can range from getting the same manuscript published in multiple journals to modifying a previously published manuscript with some new data.

Types of Pladiarism

Full Plagiarism: Previously published content without any changes to the text, idea and grammar is considered as full plagiarism. It involves presenting exact text from a source as one’s own.

Partial Plagiarism: If content is a mixture from multiple different sources, where the author has extensively rephrased text, then it is known as partial plagiarism.

Self-Plagiarism: When an author reuses complete or portions of their pre-published research, then it is known as self-plagiarism. Complete self-plagiarism is a case when an author republishes their own previously published work in a new journal.

Please Note:

1. Full plagiarism, partial plagiarism, and self-plagiarism are not allowed.
2. The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.
3. An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.
Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

The editor will run a plagiarism check using turnitin for the submitted articles before sending it to the reviewers. We do not process any plagiarised contents. If an article has over 20% of plagiarism based on the result of the check, the article will be rejected. The journal is carried out by using Mendeley, Endnote or Zotero as a Tool Reference Manager.
