Haripur Journal of Educational Research (HJER)

Peer Review Policy & Process

HJER follows a double blind peer reviewing policy. Initial screening for the suitability of the article for publication in HJER is carried out by the associate editors and subsequently the manuscript is sent for blind reviewing. Each article is reviewed by two professional reviewers. Authors are informed about the comments or suggestions of the reviewers and are required to revise their paper in the specific time. A large number of submissions are rejected without being sent out for external peer review on the grounds of priority, insufficient originality, scientific flaws, lack of interest to the readers or the absence of scope of the journal. Usually an immediate decision is taken on such papers. The paper may also be sent to a specialist statistical reviewer if the paper demands such expertise. Once the reviews have been received, the editorial team makes a decision to accept or reject a manuscript, or to request revisions from the author in response to the reviewers’ comments
