Blind Review

To ensure the integrity of the blind peer-review process for submission to Tata Kota dan Daerah (TAKODA) journal, every effort should be made to prevent the identities of the authors and reviewers from being known to each other. This involves the authors, editors, and reviewers (who upload documents as part of their review) checking to see if the following steps have been taken with regard to the text and the file properties:

  1. The names of the authors of the manuscripts will be deleted from the text by the Journal Editors before sending the manuscripts to the reviewers.
  2. With Microsoft Office documents, author identification should also be removed from the properties for the file.
