Publication Frequency & doi

The European Educational Researcher is published every February, June, and October.

EUER assigns a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) to each published article. DOI is a unique access number that enables the identification and accessibility of each article published electronically. It is mandatory that each article published in EUER or in the early release is assigned a DOI number.

After acceptance, the manuscripts which are checked for plagiarism and bibliography and ready for publication are given a DOI number by the Editorial Board.

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. EUER allows readers to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of its articles and allows readers to use them for any other lawful purpose.

Peer Review Process

The journal uses a double-blind system for peer-review; both reviewers’ and authors’ identities remain anonymous. Papers are subject to a peer-review process, using an international panel of researchers who are experts in relevant fields. Referees are asked to judge the quality of research and also the relevance and accessibility of a paper for an international audience. Authors must propose three reviewers for their manuscripts. These reviewers should be international in scope and at least one of them should be from an English language speaking country. Authors should not suggest reviewers from their own institution or reviewers where a conflict of interest may arise for the reviewer.

Publication Ethics

The papers before being sent for reviewing are first checked by anti-plagiarism software (turnitin.com). We define plagiarism as a case in which a paper reproduces another work with at least 15% similarity and without citation.

Authors should provide all sources of data used in the research. Plagiarism in all its forms is unethical and it is unacceptable.

Authors must ensure that the submitted article is their original work, which has not been previously published;

Authors must ensure that the submitted article has not been considered for publication elsewhere;

Authors must state that all data in the paper are real and authentic;

If evidence of plagiarism is found before/after acceptance or after the publication of the paper, the author will be offered a chance for rebuttal. If the arguments are not found to be satisfactory, the manuscript will be retracted and the author sanctioned from publishing papers for a period to be determined by the responsible Editor(s).

EUER makes every effort to ensure the accuracy of all the information (the “Content”) contained in our publications. However, EUER makes no representations or warranties whatsoever as to the accuracy, completeness, or suitability for any purpose of the Content. Any opinions and views expressed in this publication are the opinions and views of the authors, and are not the views of or endorsed by EUER.

Author(s) Rights

It is important to check the policy for the journal to which you are submitting or publishing to establish your rights as an author. EUER’s standard policies allow the following re-use rights:

  • The journal allows the author(s) to hold the copyright without restrictions.
  • The journal allows the author(s) to obtain publishing rights without restrictions.
  • You may do whatever you wish with the version of the article you submitted to the journal.
  • Once the article has been accepted for publication, you may post the accepted version of the article on your own personal website, your department’s website, or the repository of your institution without any restrictions.
  • You may use the published article for your own teaching needs.
  • You may use the article in a book authored or edited by you at any time after publication in the journal.
  • When posting or re-using the article please provide a link to the appropriate DIP for the published version of the article on EUER.

Open Access Charge

In an open-access model, the publication costs of an article are paid from an author’s research budget, or by their supporting institution. These open access charges replace subscription charges and allow publishers to make the full text of every published article freely available to all interested readers.

There is no fee for manuscript submission to EUER. Also, EUER doesn’t charge any article publication fee to the author(s). However,  in order for the articles to have open access, the author(s) is/are required to pay an article open access charge. EUER is asking 200€ that covers the range of publishing services we provide. This includes the provision of online tools for editors and authors, article production and hosting, liaison with abstracting and indexing services, and customer services.

Once an article is accepted for publication, any Article Processing Charges on the article become due. The submitting author assumes responsibility for the Article Processing Charges, and EUER will not issue refunds of any kind.

 We Consider Articles for Publication Which;

  • report original science, and add significantly to research already published,
  • are of interest to the community,
  • are scientifically rigorous,
  • have sound motivation and purpose,
  • have not been published previously in the peer-reviewed literature, including in another language,
  • are not under consideration for publication in any other peer-reviewed journal or book available through a library or by purchase.
