Peer Review Policy

The publication of articles in the Journal International on Global Education (JIGE) relies solely on scientific validity and coherence as judged by our editors and/or peer reviewers, who will also assess whether the writing is comprehensive and whether the work represents a useful contribution to the field. JIGE appreciates the efforts and suggestions of its reviewers.


Initial evaluation of script

The editor will first run all submitted manuscripts within a maximum of 3 weeks. Although rare, it is well deserved for an extraordinary manuscript to be accepted at this stage. Those rejected at this stage are not original enough, have serious scientific deficiencies, or fall outside the goals and scope of JIGE. Those who meet the minimum care criteria for expert reviewers for review. usually takes up to 8 weeks.


Type of peer review

Manuscripts submitted will generally be requested by one to two experts who will assess whether the manuscript is scientifically valid and coherent, whether it is a duplicate of what has already been published, and whether the manuscript is still clear for publication or not. The method is blind peer review. Another round of processing will be carried out if the first round is insufficient.


Review report

Reviewers are asked to ask if the manuscript:

  • Original by stating the purpose and clearly
  • Methodologically sound
  • Follow appropriate ethical guidelines
  • Have results/findings that are clearly presented and support conclusions
  • Correctly refer relevant previous work
  • Reviewers are not expected to correct or change manuscripts. Language correction is not part of the peer-review process.



The reviewer advises the editor, who is responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the article. Editors will make decisions based on this report and, if necessary, they will be interested in members of the Editorial Board. Editor's decision is final.
