Philosophy of Journal of Educational Research and Innovation
For more information, please see Journal of Educational Research and Innovation Aims and Scope page.
Who Can Submit?
Anyone may submit an original article to be considered for publication in Journal of Educational Research and Innovation provided he or she owns the copyright to the work being submitted or is authorized by the copyright owner or owners to submit the article. Authors are the initial owners of the copyrights to their works (an exception in the non-academic world to this might exist if the authors have, as a condition of employment, agreed to transfer copyright to their employer).
General Submission Rules
Submitted articles cannot have been previously published, nor be forthcoming in an archival journal or book (print or electronic). Please note: "publication" in a working-paper series does not constitute prior publication. In addition, by submitting material to Journal of Educational Research and Innovation, the author is stipulating that the material is not currently under review at another journal (electronic or print) and that he or she will not submit the material to another journal (electronic or print) until the completion of the editorial decision process at Journal of Educational Research and Innovation. If you have concerns about the submission terms for Journal of Educational Research and Innovation, please contact the editors.
The format of manuscripts submitted for publication should carefully follow the guidelines of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, sixth edition. Manuscripts should not exceed twenty-five double-spaced pages except for book reviews which should not exceed five pages. Editors will not consider manuscripts previously published or under consideration elsewhere.
Peer Review Process
Manuscripts will go through a blind peer review process. Two reviewers and the editors will determine suitability and acceptance of manuscripts. Reviewers will consider quality of writing, importance of the topic, and relevance to the mission of the journal. Decisions will be made within 8-12 weeks of submission. Authors receive no remuneration other than acknowledgement of their work.
