The Review Process

Double-blind peer review helps to maintain the quality, validity, and relevance of the papers that are published in JoEED

  1. Desktop Review: Your paper is first evaluated by the editors for scope, focus, and sustainability. Papers that are found to be acceptable for the journal goes for double-blind peer review for a more in-depth analysis of the article.
  2. Double-Blind Peer Review: Journal of Education and Educational Development uses a double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from one another throughout the review process. To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their identity. The authors are required to remove any identifying information, including author names, their affiliation, address, emails, etc. from the manuscript file they submit to JoEED.
    During this process, selected independent, anonymous expert referees assess the selected research papers. The comments of the selected reviewers guide and inform the editor’s decision on a manuscript and also help authors to improve their manuscripts. The reviewers inform the authors about any gaps that they may have overlooked in their manuscript.
  3. Preparing your Manuscript for a Double-Blind Peer Review: If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, no names or affiliations of the authors should be mentioned in the word format of the paper submitted to the journal through the journal management system.

Ethics for Authors

It is understood that the authors listed in the journal article have all made a significant contribution to the research article. This contribution may exist in form of research design, data acquisition or analysis, or help design, shape, and report the research work. Every author, may it be the primary author or secondary author share the responsibility of the content and improvement of the manuscript.

Unethical Practices by Authors

  1. Gift Authorship: The primary authors add people as authors to oblige them but they have no part in writing the paper.
  2. Ghost Authorship: The authors want to at times take full credit of the article that have been submitted and they do not include the names of the people of authors who have made a significant contribution in the reported work.
  3. Plagiarism: “When somebody presents the work of others (data, words or theories) as if they were his/her own and without proper acknowledgment.” Committee of Publications Ethics (COPE). When citing any work either your own or of any other author, ensure that the verbatim is quoted the in double quotation marks and attributed to the authors through in-text citation and referencing. Similarly, any idea, result, figure or table that belongs to another author must be attributed to them using the in-text citation and referencing.
  4. Avoid Self-plagiarism: Self-plagiarism takes place when one uses his/her own work redundantly without properly citing and referencing it. This is a cause of repetition in the academic literature and is responsible for skewness in the meta-analysis of the data sets. It is thus mandatory to cite and reference your work whenever you discuss it in your papers.
  5. Data fabrication/falsification: It is important that the data which you present in your paper is authentic/original or has been taken from the source that you have mentioned in your article. In case JoEED feels that the data posed is in some way lacking then JoEED has the right to ask the authors to provide raw data.

  6. Conflicts of Interest: It is very important for the authors to inform JoEED about any conflict of interest whether it is direct or indirect in form of funding, supply of equipment or material, or any other support. It will help JoEED gauge any bias or skewness in your research. A conflict of interest can occur when you (or your employer or sponsor) have a financial, commercial, legal, or professional relationship with other organizations, or with the people working with them, that could influence your research. You can disclose your conflict of interest by writing to the JoEED editor at

  7. Allegations of Misconduct. Authors are required to read the journal’s author instructions and ethical policies carefully and to adhere to the terms before submission. While authors are given the option to suggest potential reviewers for the peer-review process, the qualifications and potential conflicts of interest of all reviewers will be carefully checked before they are invited to review.

    Report of research misconduct may be related to a published article or a manuscript under the peer-review process. The procedure for the application and management of complaints of author misconduct should proceed with sensitivity, tact, confidence, and in the following manner:

    1. The editorial office of the journal receives a complaint that an article submitted to or published in the journal is suspected of containing research misconduct.
    2. The complainant needs to clearly indicate the specific manner and detail of misconduct; for example, in a case of plagiarism, the plagiarized paragraph should be clearly highlighted and the original and suspected articles should be referred to clearly.
    3. The editorial office will conduct an investigation, during which time the editor of the journal and the corresponding author(s) of the suspected article will be in contact.
    4. The corresponding author(s) will be asked to provide an explanation with factual statements and any available evidence.
    5. If the author(s) of the suspected article accepts the misconduct complaint, the editorial office will take the following actions depending on the  situation:
      1. If the article has been published, an erratum or retraction may be necessary to remedy the situation. However, there may still be disagreement concerning the appropriate wording of the description.
      2. If the misconduct is reported during the review process, the review process may continue, with the author(s) making the relevant changes.
    6. In the case of nonresponse in the stipulated time or an unsatisfactory explanation, the article may be permanently retracted or rejected. Before making a decision, confirmation will be sought from the experts of the relevant institution or other authorities as required.
    7. The complainant will be informed of the outcome once the issue is resolved. 
  8. Complaints and Appeals. JoEED deals with complaints and appeals in accordance with the recommendations of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE):

    Authors who wish to request reconsideration of a rejected manuscript can do so by emailing the journal’s Editorial Office including the manuscript ID number.

    Please note that reconsideration will be conducted only at the discretion of the Editor(s). Please be advised that, due to keen competition for space in our journals, manuscripts may be considered low priority and subsequently rejected. Authors should explain in detail the reasons why they believe their manuscript should be reconsidered. If it is determined that it should be reconsidered, then the author may be asked to submit it as a new manuscript. The manuscript will then receive a new identification number and submission date and undergo review as a new submission.
