Articles

Checked Open Submissions Checked Indexed Checked Peer Reviewed
 

Peer Review Process

Articles published on IJISTECH have been reviewed by at least 1 reviewer using double-blind method. Pre-review articles will be conducted to check the articles’ page, pictures, table, citation, and reference list format along with articles’ chaptering systems. Plagiarism checking is also conducted through Google Scholar and Turnitin.

The review period is 4-8 weeks. If necessary, reviewers may ask another review after the authors revise the articles. The decisions belong to Editor-In-Chief based on the reviewers’ recommendation.
