Cakrawala: Jurnal Pendidikan operates a rigorous and transparent peer-review process that aims to maximize quality. Peer-review is handled by researchers and scholars.

We believe that peer-review needs to be efficient, rigorous, and fair for everyone involved.

In most Cakrawala: Jurnal Pendidikan journals, peer-review is a Double-blind assessment with at least two independent reviewers, followed by a final acceptance/rejection decision by the Editor-in-Chief, or another academic editor approved by the Editor-in-Chief. The Editor-in-Chief is responsible for the academic quality of the publication process, including acceptance decisions, approval of Guest Editors and Special Issue topics, and appointing new Editorial Board members.





A summary of the editorial process is given in the flowchart below.


  1. The editor performs the first evaluation in the form of article topic, novelty, article layout, and article originality. If the article is out of the scope and/or has a high plagiarism level, then the article will be rejected. This process can take up to 3 weeks.
  2. The editor assigns at least 1 Peer-reviewer(s) based on the article topic.
  3. Peer-reviewer(s) of Cakrawala: Jurnal Pendidikan review the article. This process can take up to 2 months.
  4. Peer-reviewer(s) submit the review to the Editor.
  5. The editor performs the second evaluation (related to the revised article based on the reviewer's suggestions) and provides a decision regarding the reviewer's recommendations. The decision can be: accepted without revision, minor revision, major revision, or rejected.
  6. The author(s) revise the manuscript based on the suggestion from the Peer-reviewers before the deadline. If the submission of the revised article exceeds the given time, the manuscript will be treated like "resubmit for review" or "major revisions and need to be reviewed" (back to step 6). If the Author has been given second chance to revise but does not revise the article until the deadline, the Editor will consider changing the decision by rejecting the article for publication at Cakrawala: Jurnal Pendidikan
  7. After performing the second evaluation, the Editor will ask the Author to recheck the article layout (based on the Cakrawala:Jurnal Pendidikan’s template) and self-proofread (checking on grammar and typos).
