Peer Review Process

The type of peer review process which this journal adopts is SINGLE BLIND PEER REVIEW, means the reviewers know the names of the authors, but the authors do not know who reviewed their manuscript.

The following types of contribution to JVI are peer-reviewed: Articles, Letters, Brief Communications, Communications Arising, Technical Reports, Analysis, Resources, Reviews, Perspectives, Progress articles and Insight articles. Correspondence and all forms of published correction may also be peer-reviewed at the discretion of the editors.

Other contributed articles are not usually peer-reviewed. Nevertheless, articles published in these sections, particularly if they present technical information, may be peer-reviewed at the discretion of the editors.

Questions about a specific manuscript should be contacted to the editor who is handling the manuscript.

JVI has a web-based system for the submission and review of manuscripts. Submissions should be prepared in accordance with the Author Guidelines and uploaded to http://jvi.ui.ac.id/index.php/cp/user/register. Manuscripts may be returned to authors without a scientific assessment if they do not meet all submission requirements, if they are not in the correct format, or cannot be downloaded reliably.

Submissions must represent the original and independent work of the authors. Each new submission is assessed by one or more editors to determine whether it falls within the general remit of JVI. We will reject a manuscript without review if it contains insufficient applied science content; is mainly concerned with developing and advancing methodology and not primarily with the application of those methods; there are substantive issues with the design, methodology, or data quality; it exceeds our word limit or is incorrectly formatted; it is poorly presented and unclear.

Manuscripts that pass the initial assessment are assigned to a subject expert in our team of Editors to oversee the review process. All papers are subject to peer review and authors can expect a decision, or an explanation for the delay, within a month of receipt. If a revision is invited, the corresponding author should submit the revised manuscript within 2 weeks. The final decision is taken by the editor based on the information gained through the peer review process.


Types of decisions: Decline, Resubmit, Revision, Accept



Following peer review, the paper is judged not to be acceptable for publication in JVI and resubmission is not possible.


The submitted version of the paper is not acceptable and requires major revision but there is clear potential in the work and JVI is prepared to consider a new version. Authors are offered the opportunity to resubmit their paper as a new submission. Concerns will remain regarding the suitability of the paper for publication until the editors are convinced by the authors that their paper fits the scope and standards of JVI. The resubmitted manuscript will be returned to the editor if at all possible.


The paper requires changes before a final decision can be made. Authors are asked to modify their manuscript in light of comments received from referees and editors, and to submit a new version for consideration within 2 weeks of receiving the decision letter. A point-by-point explanation of how comments have been addressed must be supplied with the revised version of the paper. Revisions may undergo further peer review and papers may undergo more than one round of revision. If the authors do not revise their papers to the satisfaction of the editors, the paper can still be declined from publication in JVI.

Final accept

The paper is acceptable for publication, subject to conditions that need to be addressed in producing a final version of the manuscript. These may include sub-editing changes and minor amendment to ensure the paper fully matches our criteria. After final checking in the editorial office, acceptance is confirmed and the paper is forwarded to the publishers for publication.
