Double-Blind Peer Review Guidelines

This OPEN ACCESS journal ensures double-blind review for every submitted manuscript. It means that in the review process, this journal conceals both the identity of reviewer and author and vice versa.  

To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their identity in the submitted manuscript.  To help with this preparation please ensure the following when submitting to Istawa: Jurnal Pendidikan Islam (IJPI): 

Submit the manuscript without the Author biodata (Name, Affiliation, E-mail.). The name of the file must not contain the Author identity.

Information to help prepare the Title Page

This should include the title, authors' names and affiliations, and a complete address for the corresponding author including telephone and e-mail address.


Information to help prepare the Blinded Manuscript

Besides the obvious need to remove names and affiliations under the title within the manuscript, there are other steps that need to be taken to ensure the manuscript is correctly prepared for double-blind peer review.  To assist with this process the key items that need to be observed are as follows:

Use the third person to refer to work the Authors have previously undertaken, e.g. replace any phrases like “as we have shown before” with “… has been shown before [Anonymous, 2007]”.

Make sure figures do not contain any affiliation related identifier

Do not eliminate essential self-references or other references but limit self-references only to papers that are relevant for those reviewing the submitted paper.

Cite papers published by the Author in the text as follows:  ‘[Anonymous, 2007]’.

For blinding in the reference list:  ‘[Anonymous 2007] Details omitted for double-blind reviewing.’

Remove references to funding sources

Do not include acknowledgements

Remove any identifying information, including author names, from file names and ensure document properties are also anonymized.

The paper will be published in the Istawa journal after the peer-reviewed process and decided “Accepted” by Editor. The final paper layout will be reproduced by the Editorial Office of Istawa journal. The final paper layout in PDF type, known as “Uncorrected Proof” should be corrected by Author. The final corrected proof will be published first in “Article In Press” pre-issue.

According to Engelmore and Morgan, manuscript content, in general, should be organized in the following order: Title; Authors Name; Authors Affiliation; Abstract; Keywords; Introduction; Literature Reviews and Methods; Findings and Discussion; Conclusions; Acknowledgments (if needed); and References. Manuscript document submitted to this journal (in one MS Word file "RTF" format) should be arranged as follow:

a)      Body text of a manuscript article (from Title to References, without tables and figures)
b)      Figure Captions and Table Captions
c)      Figures (one figure per page)
d)     Tables (one table per page)


Bullet and numbering within body text are not allowed. All sentence should be typed as a descriptive paragraph format.


Tables are sequentially numbered with the table title and number above the table. Tables should be centred in the column OR on the page. Tables should be followed by a line space (10pt). Elements of a table should be single-spaced, however, double spacing can be used to show groupings of data or to separate parts within the table.  Table headings should be in 10pt bold. Tables are referred to in the text by the table number. eg: Table 1. Do not show a vertical line in the table. There is only a horizontal line should be shown within the table.
