Peer Review Process
The author(s) may suggest a list of potential reviewers (title, name, institution, postage address, and email address) maximum 3 reviewers to review their paper. Authors can also propose that someone does not review (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 has) a doctoral degree.
Reviewers may also be invited from journals published by major publishers such as Elsevier or Springer. They must 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 articles submitted to JTE will be read and reviewed blindly (double blind peer review) by (minimum) 2 Peer-reviewers who are expert in their field. The Editor may assign the Reviewer(s) from the JTE's Peer-reviewers, Author(s)' suggestions, other researchers, and/or other JTE Editorial Member. The acceptance of an article depends on the novelty of 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.
Articles may be accepted without revision, minor revisions, major revision, or rejected. The results of reviewed articles by reviewers will be notified to the author via email. The author is given an opportunity to revise his article based on the reviewers' suggestion (and editor) no later than 8 weeks after the email notification.
All incoming articles will be checked for authenticity to prevent plagiarism by using turnitin and/or iThenticate anti-plagiarism software.
The entire processes from submission until publishing of articles is free of charge (no article processing and submission charges). All articles published on JTE are open access by following the Creative Commons: Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International license. Full license can be found here.
