Journal History


JMP with the registration number of ISSN 2089-550X (printed version), first published in printed form starting Volume 1 Number 1 in December 2011. Since then, JMP has routinely published twice a year, i.e. December for edition/number/issue No. 1 and June for edition/number/issue No. 2.

Since the beginning of the publication, a mistake was made in writing the registration number, namely ISSN 2089-5501. The mistake has been corrected along with the issuance of an electronic version of JMP with registration number ISSN 2527-6638 (online version). Since using OJS (online journal system) platform in 2016, JMP has made many improvements on an ongoing basis according to the rules of good governance of online scientific journals.

From the beginning until the fifth volume and the edition of December 2015, the number of articles in each edition of the JMP still varied and ranged from 6-11 articles per edition. However, since 2016 the number of articles published by JMP has consistently amounted to 7 articles for each issue. JMP in printed and online versions began to be published simultaneously starting in Volume 5 Number 2 of the June 2016 edition.

To improve publication quality standards, JMP began implementing DOI (Digital Object Identifier) starting in December 2017. At the same time, the application of DOI was also carried out for all articles and issues of the previous edition of JMP (back issues), so that all editions and articles published by JMP already had active DOIs. The implementation of DOI has a big impact on the dissemination of JMP publications and articles in it. One of the real impacts of the power of dissemination is recognition in the form of indexation by some indexers of international scientific journals so that the JMP is increasingly known and the number of citations is increasing.

Since the beginning of the publication, the page numbering system of JMP is issue-based or numbered each time it is published. Since the publication of Volume 7 Number 1 December 2017, JMP has begun implementing a volume-based page numbering system. That is, page number 1 starts again at each volume change.

Starting in the edition of December 2018, the JMP manager began to improve the system and administration process for accepting manuscripts via online submission, applying a similarity check with iThenticate from Crossref, a peer-review process involving more than one reviewer, editing, copyediting, proofreading, and layout editing. From its initial issue until 2018, JMP used only the Indonesian language for writing articles that were published in full. Since the edition of December 2018, JMP began accepting manuscripts in two languages, namely the Indonesian language and English. Gradually, JMP will turn to the use of English as a whole to position itself as one of the internationally recognized scientific journals.

JMP will increase the number of articles starting from Volume 10 Number 1, December 2020 from 7 articles to 9 articles in response to the enthusiasm of the authors/researchers who will publish their scientific works.
