For Conference Organizer

As a publisher, Yayasan Aliansi Cendekiawan Indonesia Thailand or internationally known as Indonesian Scholars Alliance, has signed Memorandum of Understanding with Institutions and Universities in Indonesia and Thailand. The scopes of collaboration and cooperation include to support our partners organizing their initiatives and programs including conferences and other publications. To increase the exposure of papers and works presented at their forums and seminars, specific guidelines have been created to publish their selected papers in Global Health Management Journals as Special Edition, as follows:

(*) GHMJ editorial team will check each organizer carefully to avoid predatory conferences before initiating the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the cooperation;

(*) The selection and process review will be under the conference committees; however, the selected papers will undergo a double-blind peer review following GHMJ’s general review policy. Please note that GHMJ does not provide a fast-track review. “Partnership” with GHMJ does not mean a guarantee of manuscript acceptance;

(*) Conference committee should expect on average 8 weeks from submission to publication. Soon after the list of selected papers decides, the Editorial team will decide the papers included in the Special Edition. If the selected papers from the conference cannot meet the standard of GHMJ publication, the papers can be submitted as a regular issue combined with other articles.

(*) GHMJ may advertise the conferences on her website and social media. The conference organizer can announce on their site or social media to promote their conferences or “call for papers” by stating, “selected papers will be published in Global Health Management Journal as Special Edition”. Please refer to this announcement for the previous Calls for Paper by our partner. Read more GHMJ Advertising Policy.

(*) GHMJ does not receive papers that have been published in a conference proceeding (full-text proceeding), which will lead to duplication or double publication. Thus, the conference committee should exclude the full version of the selected papers from their proceedings, if any. An abstract (in an abstract book) is not considered a prior publication.

(*) The team needs to ensure the authors’ diversity and the number of articles in each issue. A minimum of 15 papers and a maximum of 30 papers will be included in each Special Edition.

(*) GHMJ does not give a Letter of Acceptance (LOA) prior to submission, during a peer review, or before acceptance from the GHMJ editors.

(*) GHMJ does not give any discounts on Article Processing Charge (APC) for conference manuscripts.


Conference committees should follow the step-by-step working flows:

  • Title screening: Conference editors or organizers need to send a list of selected articles (study titles) and the Abstract for the first screening. GHMJ editors will check the article topics that match GHMJ readers of interest. Send the list via email to the Managing Editor;
  • Full-text screening: Conference editors or organizers need to send full-text articles of the selected abstracts. Send the full papers via email to the Managing Editor;
  • Submissions to the OJS system: Once GHMJ editors approve the full-text articles, conference editors or organizers need to submit all selected articles via the OJS system. Or, the conference editors can assign each author to register and submit the manuscript on their own. It is highly emphasized that authors and organizers follow the GHMJ guideline carefully before manuscript submission;
  • Editorial decision: GHMJ editors will provide the editorial decision after receiving feedback from two reviewers (accept, reject, or revise);
  • After received the acceptance confirmation, prior publication, authors must sign a Conflict of Interests Declaration and a Copyright Transfer Agreementand send the scanned files to
  • The process after acceptance is similar to the regular stages. Check the publication process here.
