About the Journal

Focus and Scope

TheĀ Research and Reviews in Education (RRE) is an open-access, double-blind, peer-reviewed multidisciplinary journal. Aiming to serve as a platform for disseminating cutting-edge research and reviews across various educational disciplines, RRE welcomes contributions that span empirical and non-empirical research. Although not essentially data-driven, non-empirical research should be based on empirical research literature.

Peer Review Process

Double-blind review
RRE uses a double-blind review, where neither the identities of the authors nor of the peer reviewers are shared with each other. Please ensure that author details are removed from the manuscript when submitted to RRE. The review process may take one to six months; however, the duration may be longer under certain circumstances.

Initial screening
Before entering the peer review process, every manuscript submitted to RRE will be screened by a member of the editorial board to determine whether the manuscript meets the focus and scope of RRE. In addition, all manuscripts will also be checked for plagiarism. Out-of-scope submissions and manuscripts containing more than 20% similarity index will be rejected and returned to the authors.

Peer review
Submitted manuscripts that pass the initial screening will be reviewed by two peer reviewers. In the event that the two reviewers differ on the manuscript, the final decision will be left to the Editor-in-Chief. At this stage, the authors will be notified of the status of their manuscripts: accepted, revision required, or rejected. Manuscripts recommended for revision will be returned to the authors. Failing to meet the revision requirements means the manuscript will be rejected.

Considering that editors and peer reviewers allocate a lot of time and energy to process submitted manuscripts, authors are not allowed to withdraw their submitted manuscripts because such withdrawals are a waste of valuable resources. Authors who withdraw their submitted manuscripts will be blacklisted.
