3. Is the manuscript written in Indonesian / English correctly and clearly?
4. Does the title reflect the contents of the paper?
5. Are the objectives and problems stated in the text clearly and
in accordance with the field of mechanical engineering?
6. Do images and tables clearly reflect objective outcomes?
7. Does the content of the manuscript have novelty?
8. Does the conclusion answer the objectives and problems stated in the manuscript?
9. Are references mostly current?
10. Overall recommendation and evaluation: Accept and publish as is, or Accept and
