Peer Review

Full Confidentiality

Each article submitted to the journal will be managed with full confidentiality. Each submission will be reviewed by the Managing Editor on a case-by-case basis.

Journal Guarantees

The journal guarantees that the merit of an article will stand alone independently from the fame of the corresponding author or co-authors.


When the Editorial Board finds that the article meets the basic requirements of the journal (see Submission Guidelines), the article will be sent two "blindfolded" reviewers (also known as referees) appropriate to the subject matter. Author's name of the article will be kept confidential from reviewers to prevent from bias evaluation.

Total of Reviewers

The journal ensures that the authors of the submitted articles remain anonymous from the reviewers. The journal recommends that you name at least 2 potential reviewers (5 would be most welcomed) that are experts in the field that you are publishing. This would assist in hastening the editorial and review process and, therefore allow your submitted articles to be published in a timely manner.

Unacceptable Articles

In the unlikely event that only one of the reviewers finds the submission unacceptable, the article will be sent to another reviewer for a final assessment. This will assist the editorial board to decide whether the article can be published in Jurnal Fiqh.

Final Draft

Final edits are sent to the Editorial Board Members and Proofreaders of Jurnal Fiqh to check for accountability and other issues. If there is any technical error in the article, the editor will ask the author to make corrections.

Time Frame of Reviewing Process

From our previous experiences, it will take approximately 2-6 months from submission to completion of the publication process.

Information on Publications

The author will be informed about the publication of the Journal by official email when all the process completed.
