Peer Review Process

Before submitting articles to reviewers, those are first checked for similarity/plagiarism tool, by a member of the editorial team. The papers submitted to CITRAWIRA: Jurnal of Advertising and Visual Communication must have similarity level less than 15%.

Plagiarism is the exposing of another person’s thoughts or words as though they were your own, without permission, credit, or acknowledgment, or because of failing to cite the sources properly. Plagiarism can take diverse forms, from literal copying to paraphrasing the work of another.

The review process combines a double blind reviewing and an open reviewing. The editors will assess whether the submission is eligible for review. After this formal assessment, if positive, the submission will be sent to two external referees. Based on the review reports the editors will make one of the following decisions:

  1. The submission is rejected. In this case, a written explanation will be provided.
  2. The submission is rejected in its current state. In this case, the author will have the opportunity to re-submit the paper, taking into account the comments of the referees and the editor. When the submission is rejected in its current state (B) and the author wants to improve the paper, the editor assigned to that paper will support the author.
  3. The submission is accepted.

The accepted papers can be published in the blog of the journal for an open reviewing process. The aim of this second reviewing is to promote the improvement of the contents to be published in the journal. The editors will work with the authors and discuss the results of the open review process.

The whole review process will take not more than six months. Editorial, Interviews and Book Reviews will not be peer reviewed.
