Peer Review Process

Jurnal Psikologi Terapan dan Pendidikan menerapkan proses peer review. Semua artikel yang dikirimkan ke Jurnal Psikologi Terapan dan Pendidikan akan direview secara tertutup (double blind review) oleh para mitra bebestari. Pada umumnya, setiap artikel akan direview oleh satu sampai dua orang reviewer. Tanggapan dari para reviewer ini akan dijadikan landasan bagi Editor untuk menentukan apakah suatu artikel dapat diterima (accepted), diterima apabila direvisi (accepted with major/minor revision), atau ditolak (rejected). Suatu artikel ditolak untuk dimuat disebabkan oleh berbagai pertimbangan, diantara artikel tidak sesuai dengan ruang lingkup ilmu psikologi, sisi ilmiah tulisan tersebut kurang memadai untuk digolongkan dalam suatu tulisan ilmiah, kesalahan metodologi yang mendasar, atau dikarenakan penulis menolak untuk melakukan saran perbaikan yang diberikan oleh reviewer tanpa dasar yang logis. Semua artikel yang dikirim akan diperiksa unsur plagiasinya menggunakan perangkat lunak (software) anti plagiarisme (IThenticate).
