Readership is aimed at educators, researchers, policy makers, and many others with an interest in education.

The editor welcomes high quality, original articles that fall within the above scope, especially those that encourage and enhance debate on a strong social justice agenda and critical enquiry in education, besides innovative new theoretical and methodological scholarship. 

A regular feature of the journal is state-of-the-art review articles that critically analyse existing educational research in order to: a) evaluate the effectiveness of methodologies, philosophies, theories and the implications of findings of the original research; b) identify gaps in the literature and possible avenues for future research to address these in a boundary-pushing way ; c) offer new insights into the topic, for instance using the research synthesis to advance a new model or perspective that can be utilised in future studies.

Authors are strongly encouraged to consult the Instructions for Authors for guidance on how to prepare manuscripts and information on how to submit an article.

The journal offers one issue per year.

All research articles in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by at least two anonymous referees.

Editorial Policy

All reviews are subject to revision by the editors, including editing for consistency in style and formatting, according to the discretion of the editors. 

The editors reserve the right to accept or deny requests to review, and the submission of a review or revision does not guarantee publication.

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content, based on the principle that making research freely available to the public encourages knowledge sharing and the international circulation of ideas.

This journal strives to guarantee the open access publication standards established by the Association of Open Access Editors (OASPA) and its definition of open access as: a) The dissemination of peer-reviewed manuscripts; without charging user groups, without requiring registration or other access barriers; and b) copyright holders allow users to copy, use, distribute, transmit and display the work publicly in any digital medium for any responsible purpose, subject to proper attribution of authorship.

Open Access Charge

In an open-access model, the publication costs of an article are paid from an author’s research budget, or by their supporting institution. These open access charges replace subscription charges and allow publishers to make the full text of every published article freely available to all interested readers.

There is no fee for manuscript submission to the International Educational Review. Also, the International Educational Review doesn’t charge any article publication fee to the author(s). However,  in order for the articles to have open access, the author(s) is/are required to pay an article open access charge. The International Educational Review is asking for 100 GBP that covers the range of publishing services we provide. This includes the provision of online tools for editors and authors, article production and hosting, DOI, plagiarism check, internet security, archiving, liaison with abstracting and indexing services, and customer services.

Once an article is accepted for publication, the open access charge on the article becomes due. The submitting author assumes responsibility for the Article Processing Charges, and The International Educational Review will not issue refunds of any kind.

Archiving: The publisher of The International Educational Review guarantees backup of the published manuscripts and website content frequently. All accepted manuscripts are being stored in our other data storage platform as well.
