Peer Review Process

Jurnal KALAM uses double-blind review policy, in which both the author(s)' and the reviewer(s)' identity is kept hidden until the manuscript is accepted for further editing and publication.

Each submitted manuscript is evaluated on the following basis:

  1. The originality of its contribution to the field of scholarly publishing;
  2. the soundness of its theory and methodology given the topic;
  3. the coherence of its analysis;
  4. its ability to communicate to readers (grammar and style)

Normal turn-around time for screening and evaluation of manuscripts is two to four months from the date of receipt. Based on reviewers’ recommendations, the Editorial Board of KALAM has fully rights to decide article status (whether accepted, or not). Articles submitted to the Journal KALAM can use one either English, Arabic, or Bahasa Indonesia. However, writing abstracts in English is a must.
