  32. 32. | 32Crossref LIVE Indonesia: Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta, 20 November 2017 Quality & Prestige of Journal Quality is often understood to mean prestige But: •Quality is something separate from prestige •A journal can be of high quality without being prestigious (as it is traditionally measured) •Good news for new or small journals: - prestige takes a long time to achieve - quality can be achieved immediately •We need to redefine what we mean by quality
  33. 33. | 33Crossref LIVE Indonesia: Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta, 20 November 2017 Quality • Publishers provide services to authors • Part of those services is to do what we can, so the work can achieve its fullest impact What is impact then?

  49. 49. | 49Crossref LIVE Indonesia: Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta, 20 November 2017 Key Factors of Quality Articles? What are the key factors to measure the quality articles?  Originality  Novelty  Addressing new problems/complex issues  Useful for real world applications  Adaptability (flexibility)- diversified Data , scalability  Applicability  Generality  Future Directions
  50. 50. | 50Crossref LIVE Indonesia: Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta, 20 November 2017 Originality “Keaslian” • What is Originality? - An original work is one not received from others nor one copied from or based on upon the work of others. - It should be unique solution and invented by ourselves based on our own thinking but not from others thinking or any existing papers/concepts. - How to Prove Originality? –Literature review Introduction section
  51. 51. | 51Crossref LIVE Indonesia: Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta, 20 November 2017 Novelty “Kebaruan” • What is Novelty? - It is some thing new or Modified one or Motivated one or Inspired one. - It may be based on existing concepts or basis/Hypothesis. - Originality can be a Novelty but Novelty cannot be Original - This is my argument. - Basis should be supported either by mathematical Model or Facts (if he is not good in mathematics). - Most important is Literature Survey and Experimental results with state of the art methods .
  52. 52. | 52Crossref LIVE Indonesia: Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta, 20 November 2017 Addressing a New/Unsolved Problem/Complex Issue • What are New Problem and Complex Problem? - Problem should not have been addressed in the past. - New problems may exist because of new applications and requirements. • How to prove, it is a new problem? - Literature Survey and citing new applications. • New Problem vs Novelty ????
  53. 53. | 53Crossref LIVE Indonesia: Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta, 20 November 2017 Useful for Real World Applications • Identify exact Applications rather than citing general applications. • Introduction should pin point exact application. • Clear experimental results for the specific application. • Comparative study with the state of the art methods.
  54. 54. | 54Crossref LIVE Indonesia: Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta, 20 November 2017 Adaptability • The method should work for different data, size and large data. • It should have ability to cope with distortions and unexpected. • It should require minimum changes. • How to prove it - Experimental results on diversified data, large data along with the benchmark data
  55. 55. | 55Crossref LIVE Indonesia: Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta, 20 November 2017 Applicability • The concept or idea should work for different applications with minimum changes. • The same concept can be used to solve different problems. • In other words, it should be easy to implement and understand. - E.g. Conference work
  56. 56. | 56Crossref LIVE Indonesia: Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta, 20 November 2017 Generality • The idea or concept should work for general data. • In other words, it should give optimal solution to both specific data and general data.
  57. 57. | 57Crossref LIVE Indonesia: Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta, 20 November 2017 Future Directions • The scope of the problem or the method should be expandable. • One should not say, we have solved the problem completely (100%)- impossible. • Present failure cases of the method and mention drawbacks/weakness. • idea or concept should give insights about future issues when the researcher read the paper.
  58. 58. | 58Crossref LIVE Indonesia: Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta, 20 November 2017 A good article … • Is attractive to the editors - Makes them want to read it all • Communicates its message clearly - Clearly written - Clearly structured • Encourages citation - Through its content

  63. 63. | 63Crossref LIVE Indonesia: Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta, 20 November 2017 9. Strategies for Editors
  64. 64. | 64Crossref LIVE Indonesia: Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta, 20 November 2017 Twelve (12) Tips for Editors 1. Make the journal your top professional priority: Jika Anda telah memilih tugas sbg EiC/Editor, ini harus menjadi prioritas utama Anda. Jurnal yang menerima ratusan artikel setiap thn tdk mudah ditangani. Anda dapat mencoba menciptakan waktu dengan mengurangi beban di area lain. Sulit? Tentu saja. Anda bisa mendapatkan sedikit kelonggaran dengan tidak menjadi reviewer/editor jurnal lain. 2. Be efficient: Skim (or speed read) papers. Buat keputusan segera setelah ada hasil review. Editor harus memapankan jurnal sebagai tempat penulis mendapatkan umpan balik yang cepat. Penulis menerima rejected jauh lebih baik jika Editor memberi kabar buruk setelah satu (1) bulan dibanding setelah enam (1) bulan. 3. Pick your editorial board with care: Pilih Editorial board dengan cermat. Senior researchers are too busy to review manuscripts? Make the editorial board large enough so that you do not overwhelm (membebani) reviewers (norma kebanyakan jurnal 6-10 manuscripts per year) 4. Select reviewers carefully, with an aim to getting a range of opinions: The most critical stage in the editorial process is selection of reviewers. Jika Anda mengandalkan orang-orang yang terpercaya dapat me-review, 2 atau 3 reviewers adalah sudah cukup. 5. Treat associate editors well: If you are the EiC, you probably have at least a few (and maybe more) associate editors. Like the editorial board, associate editors should be selected with great care. One of your tasks is to track their performance a bit and try to provide advice as needed. 6. Try to accept papers that advance the field: Papers get accepted in journals for a variety of reasons: 1) What is it that the reader will learn from this article, 2) Why is that knowledge important? and 3) If published, what will this paper be cited for in the future?
  65. 65. | 65Crossref LIVE Indonesia: Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta, 20 November 2017 Twelve (12) Tips for Editors 7. Write good action letters; be concise and be as kind as possible: If you are rejecting the paper and do not want to see a revision, be clear about it. If you reject it too kindly without being clear, the author may waste time and effort revising and sending it back. And then your time as editor is wasted too, as you will handle the paper again. 8. Don’t routinely send papers out for re-review: Banyak editor selalu mengirimkan artikel utk review ke-2 & bahkan untuk ke-3 kalinya. Ini menghabiskan banyak waktu & sangat menunda publikasi (atau penolakan) dari sebuah artikel. Buat keputusan dgn cepat berdasar response to reviewers (jk mungkin), terutama jika Anda sbg Editor paham tentang topik tsb. Jika Anda benar-benar tdk paham dengan topik (terlalu jauh dari keahlian Anda, namun reviewers menjanjikan bersedia me-review ulang), maka kirimikan kembali untuk meninjau kedua kalinya. 9. Try to keep your editorial criterion relatively consistent over the years: Cobalah untuk menjaga kriteria editorial Anda tetap konsisten selama ini. Pada thn2 awal sering editor memiliki standar yang sangat tinggi. 10. Don’t give in to special pleading: Jangan menyerah pada permohonan khusus. Tolak permohonan khusus ini. Jika seseorang menuntut perlakuan khusus dan cepat, itu adalah alasan untuk melambat dan disengaja. 11. Discourage replies and counter-replies: Ruang jurnal yang berharga lebih baik dialokasikan untuk makalah baru. 12. Always remember: It’s the author’s paper, not your paper: Ini mungkin tip paling penting. Beberapa editor sangat berat tangan. Mereka ingin penulis menulis ulang makalah itu ke spesifikasi mereka dan reviewers, seolah-olah editor selalu tahu yang terbaik.
  66. 66. | 66Crossref LIVE Indonesia: Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta, 20 November 2017 Remarks Motivating authors to come to your journal? •Be visible - Will you help raise awareness of their article? - Can you motivate authors to sell their own articles? o Social networking o Blogs o Alerts •Be credible - Good reputation - Good quality •Give good service - Submission systems - Responsive - Feedback •Be accredited and/or indexed - Accredited by Kemenristekdikti - Indexed by Google Scholar, DOAJ, EBSCO, ProQuest, Scopus, Web of Science …. - SJR, SNIP, CiteScore, Impact Factor … •What is your unique selling point (USP)? - What extra can you offer?
