Scientific journal is an indicator of the progress of an educational institution. Publication in Scientific Journals is a tool to build the reputation of lecturers, researchers, teachers, and universities. However, the management of journals in Indonesia still does not consider the importance of indexing as a way of global dissemination. This is evident from the data showing that of the total journals registered in Indonesia, only 5.17% have been accredited. Department of Geomatics Engineering, Faculty of Mineral Technology, UPN "Veteran" Yogyakarta has a Scientific Journal called Jurnal Ilmiah Geomatika (IMAGI). IMAGI is a forum for writing, scientific work, and research related to development and application of geodesy and geomatics, survey mapping and GNSS, land, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing, photogrammetry, hydrography, geography, and geology and disasters studies. Journal accreditation can expand IMAGI connectivity to improve the quality of publications. The main objectives of this research are to optimize and improve the management of IMAGI to get maximum accreditation score. There are several steps conducted in this research including identification of the requirement for journal accreditation, preliminary assessment, evaluation of journal management, workshop and benchmarking, implementation of evaluation results, and submit the journal accreditation. The methodology that used for this research are discussion with journal expert and benchmarking with another scientific journal.
