Peer review process

All submitted manuscripts are reviewed initially by the Editors of the Social Sciences and Education Research Review and the papers that meet the scientific and editorial standards of the journal, and fit within the aims and scope of the journal, will be sent for outside review by two members of the editorial board.

Through this process we ensure that each published manuscript is reviewed by at least two referees. SSERR adheres to a rigorous double-blind reviewing policy in which the identity of both the reviewer and author are always hidden from both parties.

The Editors can provide the authors of the submitted articles with feedback, received from the referees, in order for the author to revise their article and resubmit it for consideration.

Manuscripts failing to meet acceptable standards of English usage, with incomplete or outdated bibliographies, or the content of which is technically weak or inappropriate for the scope of the journal will generally be rejected on submission.
