Peer Review Process

Peer Review Process

  1. Desk Evaluation: A designated editor will conduct an initial review of the submitted manuscript. This review will assess whether the manuscript aligns with the focus and scope of the EduMa journal and whether it exhibits any significant methodological weaknesses. Additionally, similarity scores will be checked using Turnitin to ensure originality.

  2. Expert Review: The editorial team will select at least two anonymous expert referees who specialize in the subject matter. These experts will evaluate the manuscript's contribution, originality, relevance, and presentation. This process follows a "blind peer review" system to maintain anonymity.

  3. Author Response: Following the reviews, the author will receive feedback and suggestions from the reviewers. The author should address these comments and make necessary revisions.

  4. Editorial Evaluation: The editorial team convenes in editorial board meetings to assess the reviewers' recommendations and decide on the final publication status of the manuscript. The Editor will then communicate the final decision to the corresponding author.
