Author Guidelines

Eduvantage welcomes submissions from around the world of scholarly articles in the field of Business and Management, Finance and Accounting, Information Technology and Law

Eduvantage is composed of four sections:
  • the Research Articles section,
  • the Case Studies section and
  • the Analysis & Reports section
  • the Book and Media Reviews section.

General articles are submitted to an anonymous peer reviewing process to determine whether they will be accepted for publication in the Article section of the journal.

Papers published in the Research Article section are developed through a rigorous mentoring process before undergoing the journal's standard, anonymous refereeing process.

Review criteria

Articles will be subject to double blind review by a minimum of two peer reviews. The reviewers will assess each article against the following criteria:

  • The article content is consistent within the discipline of the journal.
  • The article is appropriate for the intended audience of the journal.
  • The article title is consistent with content.
  • The purpose is clear and focused.
  • The introduction raises interest.
  • The method of inquiry is consistent with purpose and academic genre of paper.
  • It exhibits valid, logical arguments/ meaningful discussion in relation to the body of knowledge.
  • The paper identifies significant ideas or findings that adds to what is known.
  • The conclusion is strong and consistent with the purpose, method and discussion.
  • Paper complies with format and length limit (see manuscript length below).
  • Referencing is complete and accurate.

The review process takes one to three months. Authors will be notified by email of the outcome of the process. Reviewers may give conditional acceptance of a paper, requesting authors to make changes. Such requests and authors’ responses are facilitated by editors to maintain author/peer reviewer anonymity.

Preparation of manuscripts

The submission file is required in Microsoft Word or RTF document file format.
