Focus and Scope

Journal of the Indonesian Mathematical Society (JIMS) is an electronic international journal provided by the Indonesian Mathematical Society (IndoMS). JIMS disseminates new research results in all areas of mathematics and provides the publication forum not only for the original research articles, but also for the review articles from contributors. This JIMS promotes the ideal platform for the discussion of more sophisticated mathematics research and practice for authors and readers worldwide.

JIMS is designed and devoted to the researchers, the lecturers, the teachers, the university students, and the people who are interested in mathematics and willing to publish their research results in the area of mathematics. All original research articles in mathematics are welcome to be published in this journal. The topics include, but are not limited to the following topics: 

  • Pure Mathematics

Pure mathematics research area is focused on the development of theoretical aspects on mathematics which include analysis and applied analysis, algebra and applied algebra, logic, geometry, differential equations, dynamical system, fuzzy set, and fuzzy logic, etc. The researches on this topic can be traced to the work of Hendra Gunawan, Cemil Tunç, Bijan Davvaz, Ferdinand Verhulst, D. K. Ganguly, etc.

  • Graph and Combinatorics

This research area is focused on all areas in graph theory, combinatorics, number theory, coding theory, cryptography, etc. The researches on this topic can be traced to the work of Edy Tri Baskoro, S. Arumugam, N. Kamatchi, Martin Bača, Mirka Miller, etc.

  • Applied Mathematics and Computation

The research topics in applied mathematics and computation are including mathematical modeling (including but not limited to mathematical physics, mathematical biology, mathematical medicine), control theory and automation, optimization, operational research, neural network, data science, machine learning, etc. The researches on this topic can be traced to the work of Edy Soewono, Sudi Mungkasi, E. van Groessen, W. T. van Horssen, etc.

  • Statistics and Probability

These research topics are including all areas in statistics and probability, finance mathematics, biostatistics, actuary, etc. The researches on this topic can be traced to the work of Budi Nurani Ruchjana, I Wayan Mangku, J. A. M. van der Weide, M. Anderluh, Subanar, Wayan Somayasa, etc.

Peer Review Process

Journal of the Indonesian Mathematical Society is an international peer-reviewed journal published by the Indonesian Mathematics Society (IndoMS). The manuscript will be sent to at least two anonymous referees for contribution, originality, relevance, and presentation (double-blind review). Reviewers' comments are then sent to the corresponding author for necessary actions and responses. The Editor shall inform you of the results of the review as soon as possible, hopefully in 30 to 60 days. The submitted manuscript is first reviewed by an editor. It will be evaluated in the office, whether it is suitable for the Journal of the Indonesian Mathematical Society focus and scope or has a major methodological flaw and similarity score.

The editor will run a plagiarism check using turnitin.com (Web Checker) for the submitted articles before sending it to the reviewers. We do not process any plagiarised contents. If an article has over 20% of plagiarism based on the result of the check, we will send back the article to the author to be revised for the plagiarised contents. The journal is carried out by using Mendeley as a Tool Reference Manager. The language used in this journal is English. 

The accepted research articles will be available online (free download) following the journal peer-reviewing process. The final decision of articles acceptance will be made by Editors according to Reviewers' comments. The articles sent back to the authors for revision should be returned to the editor without delay. The revised article returned later than 20 days will be considered as new submissions. The revised article can be sent to the editorial through the Online Submission Interface.

All articles published Open Access will be immediately and permanently free for everyone to read and download. We are continuously working with our author communities to select the best choice of license options, currently being defined for this journal as Creative Commons Attribution.

Section A: Publication and authorship 

  1. All submitted papers are subject to a strict peer-review process by at least two International Reviewers that are experts in the area of the particular paper.
  2. Review processes are blind peer review.
  3. The factors taken into account in the review are relevance, soundness, significance, originality, readability, and language.
  4. The possible decisions include acceptance, acceptance with revisions, or rejection.
  5. If authors are encouraged to revise and resubmit a submission, there is no guarantee that the revised submission will be accepted.
  6. Rejected articles will not be re-reviewed.
  7. The paper acceptance is constrained by such legal requirements as shall then be in force regarding libel, copyright infringement, and plagiarism.

Abstracting and Indexing

Journal of the Indonesian Mathematical Society (JIMS), p-ISSN:2086-8952 and e-ISSN:2460-0245, is indexed and abstracted in:



The papers published in the Journal of the Indonesian Mathematical Society (JIMS) will be considered to retract in the publication if:

  1. They have clear evidence that the findings are unreliable, either as a result of misconduct (e.g. data fabrication) or honest error (e.g. miscalculation or experimental error).
  2. The findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper cross-referencing and permission or justification (i.e. cases of redundant publication).
  3. It constitutes plagiarism.
  4. It reports unethical research.

The mechanism of retraction follows the Retraction Guidelines of Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) which can be accessed at https://publicationethics.org.


Withdrawal of Manuscripts

The author is not allowed to withdraw submitted manuscripts, because the withdrawal is a waste of valuable resources that editors and referees spent a great deal of time processing submitted manuscript, and works invested by the publisher.

If the author still requests withdrawal of his/her manuscript when the manuscript is still in the peer-reviewing process, the author will be punished with paying $750 USD per manuscript, as a withdrawal penalty to the publisher. However, it is unethical to withdraw a submitted manuscript from one journal if accepted by another journal.

The withdrawal of the manuscript after the manuscript is accepted for publication, the author will be punished by paying $1000 USD per manuscript. Withdrawal of the manuscript is only allowed after the withdrawal penalty has been fully paid to the Publisher. If the author doesn't agree to pay the penalty, the author and his/her affiliation will be blacklisted for publication in this journal. Even, his/her previously published articles will be removed from our online system.
