Review Policy

The iRASD Journal of Educational Research (iRASD-JER) employs a rigorous double-blind peer-review process to ensure the quality and integrity of published manuscripts. Key aspects of our Peer Review Policy include:

  • Double-Blind Review: iRASD-JER operates on a double-blind peer-review system where the identities of both the authors and reviewers are concealed from each other throughout the review process. Reviewers are selected based on their expertise in the subject matter and are not provided with information about the authors' identities or affiliations.
  • Objective Evaluation: Reviewers evaluate manuscripts solely based on the quality, originality, and significance of the research presented. This approach helps maintain fairness and impartiality in the assessment process, focusing purely on the scientific merit of the content.
  • Reviewer Selection: Manuscripts typically undergo evaluation by at least two independent experts in the field. Reviewers are chosen for their expertise, ensuring thorough evaluation and constructive feedback to authors.
  • Criteria for Review: Reviewers assess whether the submitted article is scientifically sound, methodologically robust, and contributes new knowledge or insights to the field of educational research. They also check for any overlap with previously published works and adherence to ethical standards.
  • Review Reports: Reviewers provide detailed reports outlining their assessments and recommendations regarding the suitability of the manuscript for publication. These reports are shared anonymously with authors to facilitate improvements and revisions.
  • Editorial Decision: Based on the reviewers' feedback and recommendations, the editorial team makes final decisions regarding acceptance, revision, or rejection of manuscripts. Authors are notified of the editorial decision along with constructive feedback to guide revisions, if necessary.

The double-blind peer-review process at iRASD-JER upholds rigorous scholarly standards, ensuring that only high-quality, original research contributes to the advancement of educational sciences and meets the expectations of our readership and academic community.
