Article Publication Charges

JURNAL SULTAN: Riset Hukum Tata Negara has been published electronically as an Open Journal System (OJS) since 2022 under the auspices of the Constitutional Law Study Program, Faculty of Sharia and Islamic Law, Parepare State Islamic Institute.

JURNAL SULTAN has a frequency of publishing two (2) times a year, namely in April and October, all articles are published through a peer review process by the Editorial Team and Reviewers, both internal and external editors and reviewers.

The Peer-Review process in this journal begins with a review related to the accuracy of meeting the requirements of the Author Guidelines or article writing guidelines and reviewing journal templates by the Editorial Board both internally and externally.  Editors who already have a track record are tasked with carefully examining and ensuring that the article being reviewed meets the Author Guidelines and Template Journal. The next stage is that the editor is in charge of providing the results of the assessment by filling out the assessment result form/assessment form. In the next process, the editorial team is then tasked with returning the article according to the results of the review from the Board of Editors when the article still does not meet the Author Guideline or the Journal Template for revision by the author.

In the process of being reviewed by the Editorial Team, a study was also carried out related to checking similarity using Turnitin. Articles that have met the requirements of the review process from the editor team, then continued with the review process by the reviewer. Editors are in charge of sending articles electronically to reviewers,  both internal and external reviewers.

The Peer review process carried out by the internal reviewer and external reviewer is in charge of reviewing and assessing the substance of the article, assisting the author through comments and inputs both related to the state of arts and other relevant substance components.  The review process is carried out using a single-blind review and gradually using a double-blind review.  The review process is ethically carried out for the substance of the article, and criticism and input are carried out objectively.  The reviewer presents clear views and inputs supported by clear arguments. Criticism of the author's personality is an unethical and out-of-place act committed by the reviewer during the review process of this journal.

The reviewer is tasked with in detail identifying the relevance of legal documents, concepts, theories, and the results of previous relevant studies used by the author to review and analyze. The reviewer is also in charge of identifying reading sources or relevant study results that have not been curated by the author.

The entire review process is carried out electronically. After the peer review process of the reviewers is completed, then the Journal Editor is tasked with deciding which articles are worthy of publication, taking into account the results of the initial review from the team of editors, the validity of the articles from the results of reviewers, the expediency and contribution of the substance of the article in the context of developing legal science for researchers, academics, and practitioners, especially related to the development of legal substance locally, nationally, and internationally. The final stage of the peer review process is accepting and copyediting and publication.  Each published article is free of a publication fee.
