Manuscript Submission

All manuscripts should be submitted online and then are automatically acknowledged by e-mail which mentions tracking article ID for future reference.

PHI issues usually contain between 5 and 20 papers.

All submitted manuscripts would be subjected to screening and there would be a zero tolerance for manuscripts that demonstrate any evidence of unattributed "cutting and pasting" also called as plagiarism. PHI strongly discourages duplication/reduplication of data already published. If and when duplication is detected after publishing in PHI, the journal will be forced to ‘retract’ such articles. Copyright permission should be obtained from the copyright holder in advance if a published Table/Figure is included.

Legends should be concise but comprehensive – the table, legend, and footnotes must be understandable without reference to the text. All abbreviations must be defined in footnotes. Footnote symbols: †, ‡, §, ¶, should be used (in that order) and *, **, *** should be reserved for P-values. Statistical measures such as SD or SEM should be identified in the headings. Put the tables in the main content in the appropriate position, instead of putting them under the references.

EDITORIAL PROCESS 

A manuscript will be reviewed for possible publication with the understanding that it is being submitted to Public Health of Indonesia alone at that point in time and has not been published anywhere, simultaneously submitted, or already accepted for publication elsewhere.

The journal expects that authors would authorize one of them to correspond with the Journal for all matters related to the manuscript. All manuscripts received are duly acknowledged. On submission, editors review all submitted manuscripts initially for suitability for formal review. Manuscripts with insufficient originality, serious scientific or technical flaws, or lack of a significant message are rejected before proceeding for formal peer-review. Manuscripts that are unlikely to be of interest to the Public Health of Indonesia readers are also liable to be rejected at this stage itself.


Manuscripts that are found suitable for publication in Public Health of Indonesia are sent to two or more expert reviewers. The journal follows a double-blind review process, wherein the reviewers and authors are unaware of each other identity. Every manuscript is also assigned to a member of the editorial team, who based on the comments from the reviewers, takes a final decision on the manuscript. The comments and suggestions (acceptance/ rejection) received from reviewers are conveyed to the corresponding author. If required, the author is requested to provide a point by point response to reviewers comments and submit a revised version of the manuscript. This process is repeated till reviewers and editors are satisfied with the manuscript.

Manuscripts accepted for publication are copy edited for grammar, punctuation, print style, and format. Page proofs are sent to the corresponding author. The corresponding author is expected to return the corrected proofs within three days. It may not be possible to incorporate corrections received after that period. The whole process of submission of the manuscript to final decision and sending and receiving proofs is completed online.
