Information for Conference Organisers


The Pertanika Proceeding requires proof of an appropriate peer review process by the conference committee. The most common types of peer review conducted are single-anonymous and double-anonymous reviews.


  • In single-anonymous, the names of the reviewers are not shared with the author. However, the reviewers are aware of the author's identity.
  • In double-anonymous, neither the author nor the reviewers know each other's identity.


All committees must complete a form describing how the papers were peer-reviewed by providing at least two review reports for each manuscript. This information will be published as part of the proceedings. The conference committee must ensure the review process follows the criteria set by Pertanika.


Authors and committees must also agree to comply with Pertanika’s Code of Ethics to meet all the usual quality standards for proceeding publication.
