About the Journal

The Interdisciplinary Journal of Education Research (IJER), owned by Education Research and Rural Community development Forum (ERRCDF) is a blind peer-reviewed "open access" journal, 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. Click IJRCS to access the Rural and Community Releated journal. However, the purpose of IJER is to disseminate high-level interdisciplinary research result and content beyond learning, teaching and research. 

Publication Frequency

IJER publishes two issues per year continuously on article-by-article. That is, articles submitted, reviewed and accepted between January and June each year will be published in the first issue, while articles submitted, reviewed and accepted between July and December will be published in the second issue. Accepted papers ready for publication at any time are immediately made available online on an article-by-article basis.
