Peer Review Process

All manuscripts will be subject to editorial review and double-blind peer reviews. Papers that do not meet the criteria for inclusion or are otherwise inappropriate will be rejected without external review. Manuscripts judged to be appropriate for inclusion in the Jurnal Keperawatan Respati Yogyakarta (JKRY) are sent for formal review. Typically two experts review each paper, however, they may be subjected to more advanced scrutiny if more specialized advice is needed in regards to statistics or techniques. Based on the reviewers comments, the editors will then accept or reject the papers with the following conditions: (1) Accept and publish, with or without editorial revisions, (2) Invite the authors to revise their manuscript and address specific concerns, (3) Reject the article outright, typically on grounds of lack of originality, insufficient conceptual advancements or major technical and/or interpretational problems. Any changes made to the original manuscript will be clearly stated for the authors to review. The authors should carefully examine sentence structure, the completeness, and accuracy of the text, references, tables, and graphic contents of the revised manuscript. The Editor-in-Chief will have the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of manuscripts. The Editorial Board reserves the right to edit articles on all aspects of style, format, and clarity. Manuscripts with excessive errors in any aspect, i.e. spelling or punctuation, words count will be returned to authors for revision before resubmission or may be rejected entirely.

The JKRY welcomes recommendations from reviewers regarding edits to prospective manuscripts, however, in the event of conflicting advice from reviewers, the editors will make a final decision on the course of action. Editors will evaluate the reports from each reviewer, relevant comments made by the authors, and any other information that may not be available to either party before reaching a decision. The JKRY's primary responsibilities are to our readers and the scientific community at large, and in deciding how best to serve them we must assess the validity and reliability of each paper against the many others also under consideration. We may return to reviewers for further advice, particularly in cases where they disagree with each other, or where the authors believe they have been misunderstood on certain points. Therefore reviewers should be willing to provide follow-up advice when requested. Editors are aware that reviewers may be reluctant to be drawn into prolonged disputes and will keep consultations to the minimum we judge necessary to provide a fair hearing for the authors. When reviewers agree to assess a paper, the editors consider this as a commitment to review subsequent revisions if necessary and the editors will not resubmit a paperback to the reviewers if it appears that the authors have not made a serious attempt to address the initial concerns. The JKRY take reviewers' feedback and criticisms seriously, in particular editors are very reluctant to disregard technical criticisms. In cases where one reviewer alone opposes publication, editors may consult the other reviewers as to whether he or she is applying an unduly critical standard. Editors may occasionally bring in additional reviewers to resolve disputes however we prefer to avoid doing so unless there is a specific issue, for example, a specialist technical problem.
