Peer Review Process

All articles published in Conserve: Journal of Energy and Environmental Studies (CJEES) undergo a peer-review process. The first review is based on an initial editor screening, which is followed by a more detailed review by at least two reviewers.

Each submitted manuscript is evaluated on the following basis:


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


After the initial screening performed by the Editor, the submitted manuscripts are forwarded to two reviewers for review: one from Universitas Proklamasi 45  (If the authors are not from UP45) and the other one  from outside of university or abroad. Normally turn-around time for evaluation of manuscripts is one to two months from the date of receipt.


The choice of reviewers is at the Editor-in-chief discretion. The reviewers must be knowledgeable about the subject area of the manuscript; they must not be from the Authors' own institution and they should not have recent joint publications with any of the Authors. Reviewers must not have conflict of interest with respect to the research, the Authors and/or the funding sources for the research. If such conflicts exist, the reviewers must report them to the Editor-in-chief without delay. 

Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the Editor-in-chief without delay. Reviews must be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Reviewers should express their views clearly with supporting arguments. Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents.


Once the manuscript is accepted for publication, authors shall transfer the copyright to the Publisher. If the submitted manuscript is not accepted for publication by the Journal, all rights shall be retained by the author(s). Authors grant to the Publisher the following rights to the manuscript, including any supplemental material, and any parts, extracts or elements thereof:


  • the right to reproduce and distribute the Manuscript in printed form, including print-on-demand;
  • the right to reproduce the Manuscript using photomechanical or similar means including, but not limited to photocopy, and the right to distribute these reproductions;
  • the right to reproduce and distribute the Manuscript electronically or optically on any and all data carriers or storage media – especially in machine readable/digitalized form on data carriers such as hard drive, CD-Rom, DVD, Blu-ray Disc (BD), Mini-Disk, data tape – and the right to reproduce and distribute the Article via these data carriers;
  • the right to store the Manuscript in databases, including online databases, and the right of transmission of the Manuscript in all technical systems and modes;
  • the right to make the Manuscript available to the public or to closed user groups on individual demand, for use on monitors or other readers (including e-books), and in printable form for the user, either via the internet, other online services, or via internal or external networks.


Conserve: Journal of Energy and Environmental Studies allows authors to deposit Publisher's version/PDF in an institutional repository and non-commercial subject-based repositories, or to publish it on Author's personal website (including social networking sites) and/or departmental website, at any time after publication. Publisher copyright and source must be acknowledged and a link must be made to the article's DOI (HTML link) if avaible.
