Peer Review Process


The publication of articles in the Jurnal Master Penjas & Olahraga (JMPO) depends solely on scientific validity and coherence as assessed by our editors and/or peer, reviewers, who will also assess whether the writing is understandable and whether the work is a useful contribution to the field. The Jurnal Master Penjas & Olahraga (JMPO) acknowledges the efforts and suggestions made by its reviewers.

Initial Evaluation of Manuscripts

The editor will first evaluate all submitted manuscripts. Although it is rare, it is worthy to receive an extraordinary text at this stage. What is rejected at this stage is that it is not original enough, has severe scientific weaknesses, or is outside the purpose and scope of the Jurnal Master Penjas & Olahraga (JMPO). Those who meet the minimum criteria are forwarded to experts for review.

Types of Peer Reviews

Submissions that are sent will generally be reviewed by two to three experts who will be asked to evaluate whether the text makes sense and fit into this field, whether it is a duplicate of the work already published, and whether the text is clear enough to be published. This method is a dual peer assessment.


The reviewer advises the editor, who is responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the article. Editors will reach decisions based on these reports and, if necessary, they will consult with members of the Editorial Board. Editor's decision is final.
