Journal History

LUNAR Journal: Lunar Journal is an English educational journal as aspiration of lectures at Language and Art Faculty, University of PGRI Banyuwangi. It is an effort to provide a forum for the publication of scientific works, especially teachers and lecturers. We as the manager of the LUNAR journal intend to publish a scientific journal called the LUNAR journal. The journal was founded on February 1, 2017 that published by Language and Art Faculty, University of PGRI Banyuwangi.  The Journal is published 2 (two) times a year. The Chief Editor is Sutami Dwi Lestari, M.Pd. It was first published in Volume 1 No. 1, May 2017 with ISSN 2541-6804 (Online). At the recent time, the journal stood without standard rules due to our lack of understanding as an editorial board. The logo, purpose and scope, layout and process of article management are still not well done. Starting with Volume 5 No.1, May 2021, the journal has implemented peer review with expert partners in their fields and has had scientific papers at national and international levels since the last 3 years. In addition, the layout or template of the journal has also changed according to the Ristekdikti scientific accreditation guidelines. In 2016 the editing management of LUNAR journal articles is still semi-electronic. This is because the manuscript submission process is still sent via email.  LUNAR journal has been indexed by Google Scholar and BASE. Currently, the Editor in Chief is trying to implement an electronic journal, where author submission and editing management is done online on the OJS dashboard menu and in the publication of volume 5 No. 1, November 2021 the Journal will have changed the logo and the cover.
