Publication Model

Online First

Autonomy and responsibility The Journal of Educational Sciences is committed to publishing quality research results in accordance with the ethical standards and norms of the professional-scientific community. An important element of the journal's publication model is the Online First Model. 

Online First Articles are accepted and edited peer-reviewed articles that are not yet assigned to volumes/numbers. This means that readers have access to peer-reviewed articles well in advance of print publication. These articles are searchable on the journal's website and can be cited using their unique DOI (Digital Object Identifier). Once a sufficient number of articles are received, they are sorted into issues and transferred from Online First to the current issue. 

Peer-review model

Peer review is a key element of the high quality content published in ARJES. All content in ARJES undergoes double-blind peer review, with the aim of peer reviewers providing advice on each manuscript and recommendations for publication and/or improvement of the article. The only exception to peer review is the Editor-in-Chief's Introduction, which appears in every issue of the journal.


Schedule for the publication of the manuscript

The average time during which the preliminary assessment of manuscripts is conducted: 15 days
