FOCUS & SCOPE

The Interdisciplinary Journal of Education Research (IJER) is a blind peer-reviewed "open access" journal targeted towards publishing advanced research reports across the fields of education. Accepted peer-reviewed articles should seek to provide empirical, conceptual, or theoretical perspectives on current educational issues. Our interest is limited to thought-provoking interdisciplinary debates on the practical application of general education within the natural and social sciences, humanities and management education, among others. We prioritise intellectual debates on the aesthetic of transformation in primary, secondary and higher education within the global and interdisciplinary perspective with no methodological, geographical and ideological discriminations. IJER is not limited to articles within the following disciplinary views:

  • Social science education
  • Educational management, policy, leadership and governance
  • Comparative and international education
  • Natural science education
  • Curriculum and social pedagogy
  • Teaching and teacher education
  • Religion education
  • Methodologies in education
  • Business entrepreneurial education
  • Distance and sandwich education,
  • Education and culture,
  • Ethical issues in education
  • Democratic and political education
  • Humanities and language education
  • Measurement and evaluation in education
  • Special education
  • Environmental and geography education.

Publication Frequency

IJER publishes two issues per year, and a continuous publishing model applies. Thus, articles ready for publication between January and June each year will appear in the first issue, while articles ready for publication between July and December will appear in the second issue. That is, articles are immediately made available online when ready for publication.
