Peer Review Process

General articles

Each article is refereed by two anonymous peer reviewers who do not know the author’s(s') identity(ies) or the identity of the other reviewer. Each peer reviewer will rate the article according to a set of criteria, using a template supplied electronically by the journal’s editors.

Each peer reviewer will assign a recommendation to the article:

  • Accept
  • Accept with revisions
  • Resubmit for review
  • Resubmit elsewhere
  • Decline

It is anticipated that if the peer reviewer does not accept the article outright he or she will provide comments justifying his or her recommendation and giving feedback about the article.

The editors will collate the peer reviewers’ comments and recommendations and communicate them to the author(s), as well as any required changes in the case of that being the agreed recommendation about the article.

In the case of inconsistent recommendations by the two peer reviewers, the editors will solicit a review of the article by a third anonymous peer reviewer. They will base their final decision about the article’s acceptance for publication or otherwise on the majority view among the three peer reviewers.

 

Publication Frequency

Eduvantage plans to publish two issues per year, December-January and June-July. Within the time period covered by each issue, content will be added as soon as it is ready for publication, rather than having to wait for the next issue or available issue.
