Review process

Australian Journal of Environmental Education uses a double-blind review process.

The fitness of a manuscript for publication is based on:

  • Significance/relevance to scope of the journal
  • Conceptual framework (connections to relevant constructs in literature)
  • Methods (if manuscript is an empirical study)
  • Appropriateness to questions
  • Adequate description of methods (including data collection and analysis)
  • Rigorous and appropriate methods
  • Findings/conclusions are literature or data-based
  • Overall contribution to the field
  • Writing style/composition/clarity

Articles initially are assigned to the Editor and screened as above. If these criteria are met, manuscripts are reviewed by at least two qualified referees with documented expertise. When reviews are returned, the Editor and allocated Associate Editor consider reviewers' comments, independently evaluates the manuscript, and makes an editorial decision to reject, request a revision with the stipulation of further peer review, request a revision subject to review by the Editors, or accept as is. Authors receive copies of (anonymous) referees' comments. Reviewers are also informed of the final disposition of the article.
