Peer Review Process

Review process is done by double blind review policy. All papers will be critically read by at least two anonymous reviewers (peer-reviewed process), selected for their competences in the subject area of the paper. Acceptance of the paper will depend upon its scientific strength and suitability for the EduMa : Mathematics Education Learning and Teaching. A paper may be accepted in its original form, subject to revision, or rejection.

 

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

 

Archiving

This journal utilizes the LOCKSS system to create a distributed archiving system among participating libraries and permits those libraries to create permanent archives of the journal for purposes of preservation and restoration.

 

Article Processing Charges (APCs)

Article Submission charges: IDR 0 ( USD 0)

We have been receiving a lot of submitted articles to be reviewed and edited. In this case, we need more resources (editors, peer-reviewers, web maintenance, XML galley editors, etc) to work better and effective. In another case, we do not have 'strong' funding support. For the reasons, we hardly charge authors IDR 400.000 (USD 30) for one accepted article. The payment method will be informed by the editors after the publication.

The APCs is used for final proofreading of English, plagiarism check, DOI, XML galley, one copy of the print-out journal,  and editing process. In case the authors are not able to afford the APCs, they could propose the waiver policy to the editor in chief. In the proposal, please explain your eligibility to have the policy.

 

Screening for Plagiarism

 

The article must below 20% of plagiarism. EduMa : Mathematics Education Learning and Teaching uses PlagiarismCheckerX to scan papers for detecting plagiarism. Thus, Appropriate citation and quotation should be used.

Plagiarism include:

  1. Word for word Plagiarism. The author uses the words of other authors (exactly) without mentioning the source. 
  2. Plagiarism over the source. The author uses the idea of others without giving enough recognition (without mentioning the source expressly).
  3. Plagiarism of Authorship. The author acknowledged as the author of the paperwork of others.
  4. Self Plagiarism. Included in this type are authors publish one article in more than one editor of the publication. And recycle paper/papers. That is important in self-plagiarism is that when taking his own works, then the creation of new works produced must have a meaningful change. This means that the old Works is a small part of the new works were produced. So readers will get new stuff, which is really the author of pour on the paper using the old paper

Waiver Policy

The journal provides waiver policy regarding the APCs for mathematics teachers if their manuscripts (Results of research collaboration in schools, not including on-going master/ doctoral thesis) pass the review. In order to apply for a waiver, please request one before submitting your manuscript by sending an email to eduma.iaincrb@gmail.com

 

Withdrawal of Articles

The authors are not allowed to withdraw submitted articles in the process of reviewing, because the withdrawal is a waste of valuable resources that editors and reviewers spent a great deal of time processing submitted articles.

If the authors don't agree to pay the penalty, the authors and his/her affiliation will be blacklisted for publication in this journal. Even, his/her previously published articles will be removed from our journal.
