Peer Review Process

This journal operates a conventional single-blind review policy in which the reviewer's name is always concealed from the submitting author. Authors should present their papers honestly without fabrication, falsification, plagiarism, or inappropriate data manipulation. Submitted papers are evaluated by anonymous referees for contribution, originality, relevance, and presentation. Papers will be sent for anonymous review by at least two reviewers who will either be members of the Editorial Board or others of similar standing in the field. In order to shorten the review process and respond quickly to authors, the editors may triage a submission and come to a decision without sending the paper for external review. The Editor shall inform you of the results of the review as soon as possible, hopefully in 8–12 weeks. The Editors’ decision is final and no correspondence can be entered into concerning manuscripts considered unsuitable for publication in this journal. All correspondence, including notification of the editors’ decision and requests for revisions, will be sent by email.

Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement

This statement clarifies the ethical behavior of all parties involved in the act of publishing an article in our journals, including the authors, the editors, the peer-reviewers, and the publisher (Institute of Advanced Engineering and Science and Intelektual Pustaka Media Utama). This statement is based on COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.


Ethical Guideline for Journal Publication


The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed IAES journal is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the authors, the journal editors, the peer reviewers, the publisher, and the society.

Universitas Ahmad Dahlan (UAD) and the Institute of Advanced Engineering and Science (IAES) as publishers of this journal take its duties of guardianship over all stages of publishing extremely seriously, and we recognize our ethical and other responsibilities. We are committed to ensuring that advertising, reprints, or other commercial revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions. In addition, the UAD, IAES, and Editorial Board will assist in communication with other journals and/or publishers where this is useful and necessary.


Publication decisions


The editors of the IAES journals are responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published. The validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers must always drive such decisions. The editors may be guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and constrained by such legal requirements as shall then be in force regarding libel, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. The editors may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.


Fair play


An editor can look at a manuscript's ideas at any time, regardless of the author's race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic background, citizenship, or political views.


Confidentiality


The editor and any editorial staff must not share any information about a submitted manuscript with anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as needed.


Disclosure and conflicts of interest


Editors can't use unpublished information from a submitted manuscript in their own research without the author's written permission.



Duties of Reviewers


Contribution to Editorial Decisions


Peer review assists the editor in making editorial decisions and, through editorial communication with the author, may also assist the author in improving the paper.


Promptness


Any chosen referee who doesn't feel qualified to review the research in a manuscript or who knows that it won't be possible to review it quickly should let the editor know and drop out of the review process.


Confidentiality


Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They can't be shown to or talked about with other people unless the editor says so.


Standards of Objectivity


Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.


Acknowledgement of Sources


Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument has been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also tell the editor about any significant similarities or overlaps between the manuscript being looked at and any other published paper the reviewer is familiar with.

Disclosure and Conflict of Interest

Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers shouldn't look at manuscripts if they have a conflict of interest with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers because they are competitors, work together, or have other ties to them.



Duties of Authors


Reporting standards


Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. The underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable.


Data Access and Retention


Authors are asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review and should be prepared to provide public access to such data (consistent with the ALPSP-STM Statement on Data and Databases), if practicable, and should in any event be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication.


Originality and Plagiarism


The authors should ensure that their works are entirely original, and that if they have used the work and/or words of others, this has been properly cited or quoted.


Multiple, Redundant or Concurrent Publication


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.


Acknowledgement of Sources

Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should mention books and articles that helped them figure out what their work is about.


Authorship of the Paper


Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included in the paper, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.


Hazards and Human or Animal Subjects

If the work involves chemicals, procedures, or equipment that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify these in the manuscript.


Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest


All authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.


Fundamental errors in published works

When an author finds a big mistake or mistake in his or her own published work, it is the author's responsibility to tell the editor of the journal or publisher as soon as possible and work with the editor to retract or fix the paper.

 

Checklist for preparing your paper for submission

  1. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it under consideration by another journal (or an explanation has been provided in the Comment to the Editor).
  2. The submission file is in Microsoft Word document or Latex file format. If you write your paper in Latex, you can upload the pdf file to this online system and send the Latex source files to beei@iaescore.com via email.
  3. Is your manuscript written in IAES format? At this stage, it is essential that you follow every detail of the IAES format. Please try to follow the format as closely as possible.
  4. Is your title adequate and is your abstract correctly written? The title of the paper is a maximum of 10 words without acronyms or abbreviations. The abstract (max 200 words) should be informative and completely self-explanatory (no citation in the abstract). It provides a clear statement of the problem, the proposed approach or solution, and points out major findings and conclusions.
  5. The general structure of a full article follows the IMRAD format:
    • Introduction: What did you/others do? Why did you do it?
    • The Proposed Method/Algorithm/Procedure specifically designed (optional): Authors may present complex proofs of theorems or non-obvious proofs of the correctness of algorithms after the introduction section (obvious theorems and straightforward proofs of existing theorems are NOT needed).
    • Methods: How did you do it?
    • Results and Discussion: What did you find? and What does it all mean?
    • Conclusion
  6. The Introduction section explains the context of the study and states the precise objective. An introduction should contain the following three parts:
    - Background: Authors have to make it clear what the context is. Ideally, authors should give an idea of the state-of-the art of the field the report is about.
    - The Problem: If there was no problem, there would be no reason for writing a manuscript, and definitely no reason for reading it. So, please tell the readers why they should continue reading. Experience shows that for this part, a few lines are often sufficient.
    - The Proposed Solution: Now and only now!—Authors may outline the contribution of the manuscript. Here, authors have to make sure readers point out the novel aspects of their work. Authors should place the paper in proper context by citing relevant papers. At least 15 references (recent journal articles) are cited in this section.
  7. The method section: the presentation of the experimental methods should be clear and complete in every detail, facilitating reproducibility by other scientists.
  8. Results and discussion section: The presentation of results should be simple and straightforward in style. This section reports the most important findings, including results of statistical analyses as appropriate and comparisons to other research results. Results given in figures should not be repeated in tables. This is where the author(s) should explain in words what he/she/they discovered in the research. It should be clearly laid out and in a logical sequence. This section should be supported with suitable references.
  9. Conclusion section: Summarize the primary outcomes of the study in a paragraph. Are the claims in this section supported by the results? Do they seem reasonable? Have the authors indicated how the results relate to expectations and to earlier research? Does the article support or contradict previous theories? Does the conclusion explain how the research has moved the body of scientific knowledge forward?
  10. Language. If an article is poorly written due to grammatical errors, it may make it more difficult to understand the science.
  11. Please be sure that the manuscript is up-to-date. It is expected that 40 to 50% of the references are to recent papers.
  12. Is the manuscript clearly written? Is the article exciting? Does the content flow well from one section to another? Please try to keep your manuscript at the proper level. It should be easy to understand by well-qualified professionals, but at the same time, please avoid describing well-known facts (use proper references instead). Often, manuscripts receive negative reviews because reviewers are not able to understand the manuscript, and this is the authors' (not the reviewers') fault. Notice that if reviewers have difficulties, then other readers will face the same problem and there is no reason to publish the manuscript.
  13. Do you have enough references? We will usually expect a minimum of 25 to 30 references, primarily to journal papers, depending on the length of the paper. Citations of textbooks should be used very rarely, and citations to web pages should be avoided. All cited papers should be referenced within the text of the manuscript.
  14. Figures and Tables.
    Tables and figures supplement the text. Figures and tables should appear only after specific reference to them in the text, and they must appear in the same order in which they are referenced. Refer to figures and tables using their full labels and capitalize the word "figure" or "table" when it is followed by the figure number.
    Authors also must explain what the reader should look for when using the table or figure. Focus only on the important points that the reader should draw from them, and leave the details for the reader to examine on her own.

    Figures:
    a. All figures in the article must be numbered in the same order as they appear in the text.

    b. Each figure must have a caption, fully explaining the content.
    c. Captions for figures are written as paragraphs that start with the number of the figure, such as Figure 1, Figure 2, etc.
    d. Figure captions are displayed beneath the figure.
    e. Each figure must be fully cited if taken from another article.
    f. All figures must be referred to in the body of the article.

    Tables:
    a. Material that is tabular in nature must appear in a numbered captioned table.
    b. All tables in the article must be numbered in the same order as they appear in the text.
    c. Each table must have a caption that fully describes the content and includes the table number, e.g., Table 1, Table 2, etc.
    d. Each column must have a distinct and succinct heading.
    e. Tables are to be presented with a single horizontal line under the table caption, the column headings, and at the end of the table.
    f. All tables must be referred to in the body of the article.
    g. Each table must be fully cited if it is taken from another article.
  15. Use a tool such as EndNote, Mendeley, or Zotero for reference management and formatting, and choose IEEE styleEach citation should be written in the order of appearance in the text in square brackets. For example, the first citation [1], the second citation [2], and the third and fourth citations [3], [4]. When citing multiple sources at once, the preferred method is to list each number separately, in its own brackets, using a comma or dash between numbers, as such: [1], [3], [5] or [4]-[8]. It is not necessary to mention an author's name, pages used, or date of publication in the in-text citation. Instead, refer to the source with a number in a square bracket, e.g. [9], that will then correspond to the full citation in your reference list. Examples of in-text citations:
    • This theory was first put forward in 1970 [9].
    • Sutikno [10] has argued that...
    • Several recent studies [7], [9], [11]-[15] have suggested that....
    • ...end of the line for my research [16].
  16. Please be aware that for the final submission of a regular paper, you will be asked to tailor your paper so the last page is not half empty.
  17. Self-citations: to control for citation manipulation (COPE, 2019), this journal asks that authors keep self-citations to a minimum. We would strongly suggest that you don't self-cite more than five times (including papers you wrote with other people), or 20% self-citations, whichever number is lower.

 

Withdrawal of Manuscripts

An author is not allowed to withdraw submitted manuscripts because the withdrawal is a waste of valuable resources because editors and referees have invested a great deal of time and money in processing submitted manuscripts. If an author still requests withdrawal of his/her manuscript when the manuscript is still in the peer-reviewing process, the author will be punished by having to pay $200 per manuscript as a withdrawal penalty to the publisher. However, it is unethical to withdraw a submitted manuscript from one journal if it has been accepted by another journal. The author will be punished by paying US $500 per manuscript withdrawn after the manuscript has been accepted for publication. Withdrawal of a manuscript is only allowed after the withdrawal penalty has been fully paid to the publisher.

 

Final checklist for preparing your camera ready paper for publication

URGENT!! Pay attention to the following instructions carefully! Please prepare your final paper by doing your best to avoid any delay in publication!!! You must do it!

1). Please adhere strictly to the guide of authors: word or latex. Use this file as your paper template!!

2). It is mandatory to present your final paper according to the "IMRADC style" format, i.e.:
     1. INTRODUCTION
     2. The Proposed Method/Algorithm/Procedure specifically designed (optional)
     3. METHOD
     4. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
     5. CONCLUSION
     See http://iaescore.com/gfa/beei.docx

3). Add biographies of authors as our template (include links to the 4 authors' profiles; do not delete any icons in the template). Provide links for all authors to the 4 icons (Scholar, Scopus, Publons, and ORCID) for all authors. It is mandatory!

4). Prepare all your tables and strictly adhere to the guidelines. (Do not present the table as a figure).

5). Use different patterns for presenting different results in your figures and graphics (instead of different colors). It is mandatory!

6). Please ensure that all references have been cited in your text. Use a tool such as EndNote, Mendeley, or Zotero for reference management and formatting, and choose IEEE style. Each citation should be written in the order of appearance in the text in square brackets. For example, the first citation [1], the second citation [2], and the third and fourth citations [3], [4]. When citing multiple sources at once, the preferred method is to list each number separately, in its own brackets, using a comma or dash between numbers, as such: [1], [3], [5]. It is not necessary to mention an author's name, pages used, or date of publication in the in-text citation. Instead, refer to the source with a number in a square bracket, e.g. [9], that will then correspond to the full citation in your reference list. Examples of in-text citations:
    This theory was first put forward in 1970 [9].
    Zadeh [10] has argued that ...
    Several recent studies [7], [9], [11]-[15] have suggested that....
    ... end of the line for my research [16].

We usually expect a minimum of 2n+9 references (for original research papers) and 4n+18 (for review/survey papers) primarily to journal articles, where n = page length of your papers (in simple words, for 8 pages, the number of references is min 25 for research papers and 50 entries for review/study papers). Citations from textbooks should be used very rarely, and citations to web pages should be avoided. All cited papers should be referenced within the text of the manuscript.

7). Please present all references as completely as possible and in IEEE style (including DOIs, volume, number, pages, and so on). If it is available, DOI information is mandatory!! See http://iaescore.com/gfa/beei.docx.


Please also pay attention to double checking your final camera-ready paper:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(1) The Introduction section explains the context of the study and states the precise objective. The introduction section should be presented in 3-6 paragraphs. An Introduction should cover the following three (3) parts:
- Background: Authors have to make it clear what the context is. Ideally, authors should give an idea of the state-of-the art of the field the report is about.
- The Problem: If there was no problem, there would be no reason for writing a manuscript, and definitely no reason for reading it. So, please tell the readers why they should continue reading. Experience shows that for this part, a few lines are often sufficient.
- The Proposed Solution: Now and only now!—Authors may outline the contribution of the manuscript. Here, authors have to make sure readers point out the novel aspects of their work. Authors should place the paper in proper context by citing relevant papers. At least 15 references (recent journal articles) are referenced to support this section.

(2) Conclusion section: Summarize the primary outcomes of the study in a paragraph. Are the claims in this section supported by the results? Do they seem reasonable? Have the authors indicated how the results relate to expectations and to earlier research? Does the article support or contradict previous theories? Does the conclusion explain how the research has moved the body of scientific knowledge forward?

(3) About Figures & Tables in your manuscript:
- Because tables and figures supplement the text, all tables and figures should be REFERRED in the text. Authors MUST EXPLAIN what the reader should look for when using the table or figure. Focus only on the important points the reader should draw from them, and leave the details for the reader to examine on her own.
- Tables are to be presented with a single horizontal line under the table caption, the column headings, and at the end of the table. All tables are produced by creating tables in MS Word. Captured tables are not allowed.
- All figures MUST be presented in high quality images.

(4) Please ensure the maximum page of your final paper is 8-pages for the normal publication fee, but still allow up to 20 pages (required to pay an extra fee after 8 pages, USD50 per page).

 

Policy of Plagiarism Detection

The peer-review process is at the heart of scientific publishing. As part of IAES's commitment to protecting the integrity of the scholarly record, IAES feels a strong obligation to support the scientific community in all aspects of research and publishing ethics. All submitted manuscripts must be free from plagiarism. All authors are suggested to use plagiarism detection software to do similarity checking before submitting their manuscript to the journal (please use iThenticate or Turnitin to check the similarity). Editors will also check the similarity of manuscripts in this journal by using Turnitin or iThenticate software. The manuscript will be instantly rejected if there is any plagiarism indicated or detected.

The final camera will also be checked for similarity rate. The overall similarity rate of a manuscript should not exceed 25%, and the similarity rate to a single source should not exceed 10%. Check for plagiarism with Turnitin or iThenticate software. Using another plagiarism software apart from Turnitin or iThenticate can not be accepted.
