The European Educational Researcher

Aims and Scope

Focus & Scope

The European Educational Researcher (EUER) publishes a broad range of papers from all branches of education, such as curriculum studies, elementary and secondary education, higher and adult education, teacher education, the education of special groups, gender and education, applied linguistics, or language education, educational and information technology, educational theory, research and methodologies, comparative education, early childhood education, adult education, special education, vocational education, educational administration and management, education policies and management.

Publication Frequency & doi

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

The European Educational Researcher 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 The European Educational Researcher 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. The European Educational Researcher 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 should 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.

Preprint Policy

The European Educational Researcher allows researchers to reveal a preprint of their manuscript via preprint servers and other early sharing platforms.

If your manuscript is afterward issued in The European Educational Researcher, we want you to add the following data to the preprint.

  1. Citation aspects of the final version of the manuscript.
  2. A connection from the preprint to the final version through DOI.
  3. A phrasing as presented below:

 This is the version of the article before peer review or editing proposed to The European Educational Researcher.  The European Educational Researcher is not liable for any mistakes or oversights in this version of the paper.  The original version of the manuscript can be reached online at [DOI link]

Complaints Policy

EUER promises to answer and resolve all objections rapidly and positively.

In the case of requests contrary to editorial decisions: Author(s) can appeal if they think that editorial decisions can be reverted. In this case, author(s) should make contact with the Editor-in-Chief of EUER. The Editor-in-Chief will review the manuscript again by taking into account reviewers’ comments and suggestions. If the Editor-in-Chief finds the appeal valuable, she/he send the paper to a different review process. In this case, the conclusion of the Editor-in-Chief will be final.

Complaints related to policies, procedures, editorial content, and actions of the editorial staff:

The procedure to make a complaint is easy. The complaint can be made by writing an email. Ideally, the complaint should be made to the person with whom the complainant is in regular contact for the matter being complained about. If due to any reason it is not appropriate or possible to complain to the contact person, please email to send complaints.

Complaint Resolution: All efforts will be made to resolve the complaint as quickly as possible. In some cases, a delay in complaint resolution may occur if a response from any third person or organization is required.

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 The European Educational Researcher. Also, The European Educational Researcher 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. The European Educational Researcher is asking for 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, DOI, plagiarism check, internet security, archiving, liaison with abstracting and indexing services, and customer services.

Once an article is accepted for publication, the open access charge on the article becomes due. The submitting author assumes responsibility for the Article Processing Charges, and The European Educational Researcher will not issue refunds of any kind.

Archiving: The publisher of The European Educational Researcher guarantees backup of the published manuscripts and website content frequently. All accepted manuscripts are being stored in our other data storage platform as well.

  • 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.
