Author Guidelines

Jurnal Energi Baru dan Terbarukan (p-ISSN: 2809-5456 and e-ISSN: 2722-6719) publish research results in interdisciplinary renewable energy fields that have never been published or are currently being considered for publication in other journals.

Manuscripts in a one-column form submitted to the Jurnal Energi Baru dan Terbarukan must follow the Article Writing Guidelines on this page, or you can also use a script template (camera-ready format) in MS.Word here: HERE.

Manuscript Submission

Authors must submit the manuscript (English or Indonesian) in soft file form via online submission by attaching:

  1. Cover letter 
  2. Proposed Potential Reviewer
  3. The Manuscript

1. General Overview of Peer Review Process

Basically, the submitted manuscripts will be evaluated by a reviewer appointed by the editorial board.

The Editor in Chief will review the submitted manuscripts for the first time for language suitability and conformity with the journal's scope and writing procedures according to the author's guidelines. If according to the editor, the manuscript is fit for review by a team of reviewers consisting of 2 people, then the manuscript will be sent to the reviewer, but if the manuscript does not match the initial criteria, then the manuscript will be returned to the author.

A review team of 2 people will conduct a review using the Blind review process method, where the reviewer will not know the author's name in the manuscript. The assessment criteria include originality, significance, and writing. Editorial Board has the authority to accept or reject the submitted manuscript and ask the author to send back the submitted manuscript.

Plagiarism screening of texts submitted to this journal is carried out with the help of TURNITIN apps. The more plagiarism, the article will be immediately rejected (if more than 20% does not include a bibliography). 


2. Specific Overview of Peer-Review Process

Reviewers will be asked to provide comments in a detailed and constructive manner where the comments will be the basis for consideration for editors to reject or accept articles that have been submitted. Some things that need attention from the reviewer are as follows:

a. Originality and significance

Reviewers are asked to discuss the originality of the findings submitted in an article. In addition, reviewers should see whether the findings can significantly influence the scientific community. If the reviewer finds the same work as the article being reviewed, the reviewer can provide suggestions or criticism to improve how the research results are delivered.

b. The novelty of the theoretical approach and how to discuss the problems

Reviewers are asked to discuss the novelty of the theoretical approach and how the authors discuss the research results to solve problems. This novelty element can usually be seen in the introduction section as an introduction to the urgency of the research that has been done.

c. Strengths and weaknesses of the method used

Reviewers are expected to be able to assess the method used. Statistical analysis or other analytical methods that affect the interpretation of results should be criticized to improve the quality of the article being reviewed.

d. Reliability of the appearance of research results and conclusions

Reviewers are expected to be able to assess the reliability of the research results and conclusions obtained. This reliability can be assessed through the completeness of the analysis and the data that has been obtained.

e. Layout alignment with the guidelines

Alignment with the guidelines will make it easier for editors to do the editing and lay-outing process. Many writers often ignore this and only format their writing incompletely and perfectly according to the guidelines given. Reviewers can assess this, but the main focus is on the content and some previous points.

f. Suggestions and feedback

When found several errors or shortcomings in an article, the reviewer is expected to be able to show clearly, which parts should be improved and what needs to be done to improve the quality of the article.

A management reference application, such as Mendeley, Zotero, or Endnote, should be used by authors when citing a reference and creating the bibliography in the manuscript. The writing rules used are as follows:

  • Bibliography in the form of magazines / scientific journals / proceedings:

  • Bibliography in the form of book titles:

Fogler, H.S., (2006), Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering, 4th, Prentice Hall International, Upper Sadle River, New Jersey,  pp. 47-93

  • Bibliography in the form of a dissertation/thesis:
