Peer-review of papers

Comparative and International Education Review applies “blind peer-review”. All contributions that are selected for peer-review are sent by the Editorial Board to two referees who specialize in the subject of the papers. Once approved by both referees, the publication date of the papers depends on the planning of the Editorial Board. In the event of disagreement between the referees, the Editorial Board reserves the right to decide whether the paper will be returned to the author for correction, as indicated by the referees. The paper is published, provided that the corrections meet the standards of the Editorial Board. In all cases, authors are informed of the referees’ report in due time.


Please note the following:

1. Approval of a paper by the Editorial Board by no means implies acceptance of the author’s views on the part of the Editorial Board.
2. The referees’ names are not to be announced to the authors / It is the journal’s policy to keep the referees’ names confidential.
3. Typescripts are not returned to their authors.
