Peer Review Process

SDU IJES has a two stage review process. The first stage is an initial review by one of the editors, resulting in either a decision to send to two members of SDU IJES's review panel having appropriate experience, expertise and interests, or an editorial rejection. SDU IJES uses a 'double blind' review process. That is, reviewers are not given the names and institutional affiliations of the authors, and authors are not given the names of the reviewers assigned to their article. It is therefore essential that authors remove all identifying information from their papers in the first instance. This includes removing references in the text that would enable reviewers to identify authors e.g references to authors previously published works. Names, instiutional affiliations and references can be added if the paper is accepted for publication.

Reviewers will assess the article against the following criteria:

1. Contribution to advancing knowledge of education area.

2. Quality of critical engagement with relevant literature (literature review and discussion)

3. Clarity of research and/or development goals

4. Clarity and justification of appropriate methodology

5. Quality of empirical data, analysis, presentation and interpretation of results

6. Inclusion of appropriate implications for further research, theory, practice and/or policy.

7. Quality of writing (including structure, writing style, clarity of expression) and adherence to SDU IJES formatting and referencing conventions.

Notifications of acceptances are in most cases accompanied by advice specifying revisions which may range in character from necessary for publication to optional suggestions for improving the article. In some cases alterations to figures and diagrams may be requested for purposes of facilitating production of a PDF for publication.


Publication Frequency
