Why Indonesian Scholars Journal Exists?
Indonesian Scholars Journal (IS Journal) is a result of a collaborative effort among Indonesian students associations (Perhimpunan Pelajar Indonesia – PPI) around the world. The idea was first coined in the Overseas Indonesian Students Association’s plenary meeting in Malaysia on February 2012. IS Journal arises as a movement to strengthen Indonesian students’ field of education and research through an online publication of scientific journals. This journal is expected to comprehensively combine the knowledge of Indonesians into one scientific writing repository that can be easily accessed by anyone around the world. The goal of IS Journal is to encourage education and research through the spirit of writing and sharing ideas and knowledge. In the long-term, IS Journal is aimed to be indexed by highly reputable institutions, such as Scopus and ISI Web of Knowledge.
What is Indonesian Scholars Journal?
IS Journal is a collection of Indonesian students’ scientific articles that are gathered either through (1) proceedings of the conferences held by the Indonesian students associations (PPIs) in every country or (2) the call for paper announcement through online and other publication format(s). This journal covers all areas studied by Indonesian students and is written exclusively in English. The committee of IS Journal consists of members of PPIs around the world. The team of reviewers comprising entities from foreign and domestic universities and institutions scrutinizes all articles published in IS Journal. Moreover, this journal is supported by The International Association of Indonesian Scientists (Ikatan Ilmuwan Indonesia Internasional – I4), The Indonesian Scientists and Technologists Society (Masyarakat Ilmuwan dan Teknolog Indonesia - MITI), and the radio of Indonesian students associations (Radio PPI dunia) around the world. Furthermore, in the near future we would like to broaden our partnership with this following institutions: The General Directorate of Higher Education (Direktorat Jenderal Pendidikan Tinggi), The Ministry of Research and Technology (Kementerian Riset dan Teknologi) dan The Agency for Technology Assesment and Application (Badan Pengkajian dan Penerapan Teknologi).
