Peer Review Process

The peer review practice is intended to ensure that the published material are of sound quality. It is considered as the heart of good scholarly publication and is carried out by all reputable scientific journals. Our referees play a vital role in maintaining the high standards of the English Education Journal and all manuscripts are peer reviewed following the procedure outlined below. The submission and review process will be carried out online through the Online Journal System.

Initial manuscript evaluation 
The Editors first evaluate all papers. It is rare, but it is possible for an exceptional manuscript to be accepted at this stage. The article rejection at this stage are insufficiently original, have serious scientific flaws, have poor grammar or English language, or are outside the aims and scope of the journal. Those that meet the minimum criteria are normally passed on to at least 1 expert for review.

Authors of manuscripts rejected at this stage will be informed within 2-3 weeks of paper reception.

Type of peer review 
This journal employs a blind review, where the author and referee remain anonymous throughout the process.

How the referee is selected 
Whenever possible, referees are matched to the paper according to their expertise. Our database is constantly being updated. We welcome suggestions for referees from the author though these recommendations are not necessarily used.

Referee reports 
Referees are asked to evaluate whether the manuscript:
– Is original.
– Is comply with the focus and scope of the journal.
– Makes a theoretical contribution to the study of family business.
– Is methodologically sound.
– Follows appropriate ethical guidelines.
– Has results which are clearly presented and support the conclusions.
– Correctly references previous relevant work.

Language correction is not part of the peer review process, but referees may, if so wish, suggest corrections to the manuscript.

How long does the review process take? 
The time required for the review process is depend on the response of the referees. However, the typical time for the International Journal of Pedagogy and Teacher Education is approximately 2-4 weeks. Should the referees' reports contradict one another or a report is unnecessarily delayed, a further expert opinion will be sought. In rare cases for which it is extremely difficult to find a second referee to review the manuscript, or when the one referee's report has thoroughly convinced the Editor, decisions at this stage to accept, reject or ask the author for a revision are made on the basis of only one referee's report. The Editor's decision will be sent to the author with recommendations made by the referees, which usually includes verbatim comments by the referees. Revised manuscripts might be returned to the initial referees who may then request another revision of a manuscript.

Final report 
A final decision to accept or reject the manuscript will be sent to the author along with any recommendations made by the referees, and may include verbatim comments by the referees.

The Editor's decision is final 
Referees advise the Editor, who is responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the article.
