IJED Reviewer Guidelines
Reviewers are asked to evaluate each manuscript in an objective and constructive manner based on the following criteria:
- Degree to which the work advances the field
- Strength of connection to theory
- Soundness of methods and analysis
- Organization and presentation
- Substance of the scholarship
Review is intended to improve scholarship by providing academic feedback to authors. Reviewers and editorial staff are expected to adhere to the guidelines established by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
Reviewer comments and recommendations assist the editorial team in rendering decisions on submitted manuscripts. Multiple rounds of review may be necessary before a final decision can be made; an offer to revise does not constitute an agreement to publish. Reviewers should return reviews and recommendations in a timely manner.
Accepted work will be published in the journal and no work can be published until all credited authors have completed copyright release contracts. Note that this contract gives authors the right to upload their article in their personal and their institution’s scholarly archives, though no commercial gain can result from reproduction in such archives.
