PEER REVIEW PROCESS

Jurnal Bisnis Mahasiswa employs a rigorous double-blind peer review process. Upon submission, manuscripts undergo an initial evaluation to ensure alignment with the journal's scope and guidelines. Qualified reviewers, chosen by the editor-in-chief or associate editors, assess the manuscripts' quality, originality, and adherence to ethical standards. The peer review is conducted anonymously, with both authors' and reviewers' identities kept confidential. Reviewers provide detailed feedback, critique, and recommendations, allowing authors to improve their work. The editor-in-chief evaluates the reviewers' comments and makes the final decision on acceptance, revision, or rejection of the manuscript. The peer review process ensures the publication of high-quality, well-researched articles that contribute significantly to the field of social sciences.

PLAGIARISM POLICY

JBM Editorial Board recognizes that plagiarism is not acceptable and therefore establishes the following policy stating specific actions (penalties) upon identification of plagiarism/similarities in articles submitted for publication in JBM. JBM will use Turnitin's originality-checking software to detect similarities of texts in article manuscripts and the final version of articles ready for publication. A maximum of 30% of similarities is allowed for the submitted papers. Should we find more than 30% of the similarity index, the article will be returned to the author for correction and re-submission.
