Peer Review Process

The editorial staff will collect the articles, and the Editorial Board will do an Initial Review process to select the articles. Then, the staff will send the manuscript to anonymous reviewers (Blind Peer Review). After the process has been done, the team will return the articles to the authors for revision. These processes take two months for maximum time. In each manuscript, Mitra Bestari or a peer reviewer will rate it from the substantial and technical aspects. Mitra Bestari or peer reviewer who collaborates with IMPRESI is an expert in media review, including but not limited to print, electronic, new media, and various issues of Public Relations and communication topics. They have numerous experiences in prestigious journal management and publication that are published nationally and internationally.
