Guideline for Authors

The task of writing a research article can be daunting. Thus, this section gives authors an overview of how to get their article published in Indonesian Scholars Journal (IS Journal) as quickly and as smoothly as possible.

To publish in our journal, authors must first read the journal's aims and scope as well as requirements for publication. Once they have prepared their manuscript according to the explanations in the sections below, the authors will be ready for the online manuscript submission process. IS Journal uses the IS Journal Editorial System (IES) for managing the submission and peer-review process. IES allows authors to submit their manuscripts, reviewers to scrutinize the manuscript and editors to manage the peer-review process online, providing a seamless flow from the initial article submission all the way through the final stage of publication. Once the manuscript has been submitted, authors can use IES to monitor the manuscript's status throughout every steps up to journal production, if the manuscript is accepted for publication.
