Article submissions are reviewed by at least two peer reviewers through a “double blind review” process. That is, the author’s name is removed from the manuscript so that each peer reviewer is unaware of the author’s identity. When comments and recommendations are returned to the author, the peer reviewers’ names are removed from their feedback. This process is designed to remove bias and place focus on the content and quality of each submission. Our peer reviewers are carefully selected to represent a range of thought leaders, scholars, and practitioners from around the globe. Each article is reviewed using the following criteria:
Accessibility: Is the article engaging and accessible to a broad audience of international educators?
Usefulness: Does the article provide useful examples from practice that speak to broader issues in international education?
Insight: Does the author describe insights into teaching and learning?
Grounded in the Literature: When necessary, does the author link his or her work to the literature?
Peer reviewers offer their constructive feedback using the above criteria, and then make one of the following recommendations: Accept with Minor Revisions, Accept with Major Revisions, or Reject. If your paper is accepted, you will be provided with feedback from the peer reviewers to guide your revisions. Following acceptance, you will work with the editor and a member of the editorial review board to prepare the final manuscript. If your paper is accepted you will have one month to make final edits in preparation for publication.
