“Congratulations for CERiMRE journal being indexed in DOAJ or Directory Open Access Journal following Jurnal ILMU DASAR” said Drs. Siswoyo, M.Sc., Ph.D. Vice Dean I of FMIPA UNEJ and Head of The OJS Team at University of Jember (19/4). CERiMRE, an acronym for Computational And Experimental Research In Materials And Renewable Energy, is managed by the Department of Physics, FMIPA in collaboration with Kelompok Riset Komputasi Material Terapan or KeRis KMT.
CERiMRE is counted as a young journal because it just published it in 2018. “He is relatively young, but he was able to achieve international indexation at the DOAJ level, hopefully this achievement will add enthusiasm to other FMIPA journals,” continued Siswoyo. DOAJ is a reputable international indexing engine of medium category which contains a journal database. DOAJ is open access, there is no charge for the indexation process.
CERiMRE led by Dr. Artoto Arkundato as Editor-in-chief, prepared the DOAJ indexation process through several workshops and maturation of requirements. “We registered CERiMRE at DOAJ last January 2022, then in early March last year the review process and in the middle of April our journal was indexed by DOAJ,” explained Artoto, greatly appreciating the work of the CERiMRE editorial team.
The journal, which is published twice a year, plans to apply for SINTA journal accreditation in May 2022. “According to the prerequisites of journal accreditation, CERiMRE in May we will register with ARJUNA in order to achieve SINTA,” he concluded.
To note, the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, University of Jember has managed journals including Jurnal ILMU DASAR abbreviated as JID (FMIPA / DOAJ Indexed / SINTA Accredited 3) has been publishing since 2000, BERKALA SAINSTEK abbreviated as BST (FMIPA-Teknik / SINTA Accredited 4) has been publishing since 2013.
Majalah Ilmiah Matematika dan Statistika abbreviated as MIMS (Department of Mathematics/SINTA Accredited 4) has been publishing since 2000, Computational And Experimental Research In Materials And Renewable Energy or CERiMRE (Department of Physics/DoAJ Indexed) has been publishing since 2018; Life Science & Biotecnology (Department of Biology/New Journal); Indonesian Chimica Letters (Department of Chemistry/new). Especially for JID and MIMS several years earlier, they also published in print.
