About the Journal

The Interdisciplinary Journal of Education Research (IJER) was established in early 2019 under the name “Journal of Education Research and Rural Community Development” with the publication of articles in education, rural and community studies. In January 2021, during the annual report of ERRCDF, the journal was considered too encompassing and needed to be re-constructed into two separate journals. The rural and community development aspect was made as an independent journal. This is how the “Journal of Education Research and Rural Community Development” was changed to the “Interdisciplinary Journal of Education Research (IJER)” in January 2021.
