Peer Review Process

Deviance Jurnal Kriminologi is a double blind peer-reviewed Journal. This means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away clues to the authors’ identity. Citations that may reveal the authors’ identities (e.g., “in an extension of our previous work [citation of work with authors’ names]”) should be masked (e.g., [“Authors, 2011”]). The authors’ names, positions or titles, places of employment, and mailing addresses should appear on one cover Title Page only, not in an author footnote. Other subsequent pages should include only the manuscript title in the header.

Submitted papers are evaluated by anonymous referees for contribution, originality, and relevance. Reviewer selection is critical to the publication process, and we base our choice on many factors, including expertise, reputation, specific recommendations and our own previous experience of a reviewer's characteristics. We check with potential reviewers before sending them manuscripts to review. Reviewers reserves the right to reject the script if the script review didn't match to the fields/expertise. Reviewers should bear in mind that all correspondeces in this journal contain confidential information, which should be treated as such. In general, we need one month to inform you about the results. Totally, peer review process estimated time consuming up to three months.
