Peer Review Process

Manuscript submitted to MEDIAPSI will be reviewed by applying double-blind peer review method, meaning that both author(s) and reviewer(s) cannot be identified each other. Authors should follow MEDIAPSI author guidelines and online submission guidelines (here for detail guidelines).

The following describes briefly about the whole peer review process of MEDIAPSI.

Upon receiving an article, Editor-in-chief nominates an editor who will be responsible to perform initial check to the manuscript, including suitability to the journal scope, clarity, presentation, and content. Editor also nominates potential reviewers for the manuscript. If the article is eligible, editor sends CTA (Copyright Transfer Agreement) forms and requests author(s) to complete and send them back to the editor. If it is not, rejection notice will be sent to author(s). Failure to send CTA forms on time will cause delay in editorial process for the manuscript.

After receiving the completed forms, editor designates reviewer(s) to review the manuscript and to send the decision and suggestion back within specified time. As mentioned earlier, MEDIAPSI applies double-blind peer review method, which prevents both author(s) and reviewer(s) from being mutually identified. Reviewed manuscript will be rechecked by editor for final decision, including (1) accept submission, (2) revisions required, (3) resubmit for review, (4) resubmit elsewhere, or (5) decline submission.

Editor will take reviewer’s decision and suggestion into account and discuss the final decision in an editorial board meeting with editor-in-chief. Editor, therefore, in consultation with editor-in-chief, has full authority for the final decision of a manuscript.

If decision no. 1 has been reached, though it is unlikely, manuscript will go directly to the copyediting process to be published. However, if minor revisions required (no. 2), author(s) need to revise their manuscript within specified times before being rechecked by editor. If, according to the editor, revision is still necessary, the process can be repeated several times until the manuscript satisfies the editor. Eligible manuscript will be sent to copyeditor for layouting process before finally being published.

Decision no. 3, 4, and 5 in principle means that the manuscript is not eligible to be published in MEDIAPSI. Therefore, editor will notify author(s) about the rejection and, in certain condition, suggest accordingly for the next possible options (as in decision no. 3 or 4).

Specified time for each phase of the editorial process is shown in the editorial flowchart below.
