General Characteristics of PERR

Purpose and Objectives

Psycho-Educational Research Reviews (PERR) is a scientific, scholarly journal reporting original contributions that advance knowledge in social sciences with emphasis on educational issues explored in its sub-disciplines such as:

  • primary education
  • educational sciences
  • psychological counseling & guidance (with educational dimension)
  • educational psychology
  • special education

  • distance education; technology & education
  • language education
  • comparative and international education
  • multilingual and multicultural education

Topics may be related to the problems in the social sciences regarding education or its sub-disciplines. Such contributions may include:

  • Theoretical original articles
  • Theoretical reviews
  • Reports of empirical research: quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods
  • Case reports

Editorial Board has decided that studies that include only scale development and validation are not acceptable . Original studies where the practicality of the scale is tested may be accepted for review after. 

Process: Submitted papers will appear online after initial qualification by the editorial team who evaluate: meeting the scope, quality criteria, detailed publishing standards and editorial policies, and two double-blind reviews. All submitted articles are subjected to a smilarity (plagiarism) check through ITHENTICATE. Authors are required to submit this similarity file at submission. The similarity should be 15 percent or less, and the similarity of each citation should be no more than 3 percent.

A rigorous and constructive independent and double-blind review process is in place. Submitted manuscripts are reviewed by the Editor-in-Chief for focus of concern and then forwarded to the Editors. The Editor transfers the article to the technical review team and ensures that it is reviewed in terms of template and journal guidelines. This process takes a maximum of one month. Then, if the article meets these qualifications, it is forwarded to the field editor. After a rigorous evaluation by the field editors for a maximum of 15 days, the articles are sent to at least two reviewers from two different universities who are experts in their fields. This process takes approximately one month for the first round and an additional 15 days for the second round. All these processes may take 4 to 12 weeks depending on the evaluation processes of the referees. If needed, the field editor can also reassign a different reviewer.

International focus: PERR has editorial board members, reviewers, and authors from, Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Asia, e.g., Türkiye, Egypt, Poland, UAE, United States, Argentine, Cyprus, Palestine, Japan, China, Brazil, Croatia, Jordan, Syria, Germany, Singapore, India, Greece, Spain, Peru, Colombia, Italy, Lebanon, Algeria, United Kingdom, Kosovo, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Brief Submission  Guideline

All manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with the APA7 style as outlined in the American Psychological Association Publication Manual (7th ed.). Manuscripts should be single-spaced, including references, notes, abstracts, quotations, and tables.  (TEMPLATE)

Authors should prepare a Title Page firstly, and all details (name, institutional affiliation, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, and ORCID id). should be given in correct order in the metadata, as well as on this title page. (Title Page)

The (blind review) full text manuscript must not contain any author info and be typed in Calibri font size 11point normally. Manuscripts should not exceed 25 pages (single-spaced, max. 10.000 words), including abstract (around 250 words), tables, figures, and references. Tables and references (10point, including Table titles) should follow APA7 style and be single-spaced. Manuscripts should not be simultaneously submitted to another journal, nor should they have been published elsewhere in substantially similar form or with considerably similar content.

The ethical committee approval must be obtained in studies that are conducted clinically and experimentally with humans that require an ethical committee decision. This approval should be submitted at submission.

All submissions will be reviewed initially by the editors and technical team for appropriateness to PERR. If the Editor in Chief and Editor(s) considers the manuscript fits to scope of the journal, it will then be directed to Editors. The editors examine the article and direct it to the relevant field editor in the relevant field for double-blind review process. The article evaluation process proceeds entirely under the responsibility of the field editors. The decision will generally be made by the field editors based on the reviewers’ recommendations. Opinions of the field editors are extremely important when the editor-in-chief and journal editors decide to accept or reject the article.

All process -submission, review, and revision is carried out via the journal submission system. The submissions should be written using MSWord or compatible word processors.

A DOI number is assigned to each article whose process has ended for publication in the issue. This final decision belongs to the editorial board.

To the attention of our dear authors


PERR (Psycho-Educational Research Reviews) Journal no longer have any ties or agreements with London Academic Publishing, which was our publisher before this issue. We have been publishing with the cooperation and ownership of Biruni University since our 2021 December issue.
“When journals move to a new publisher it is ERIC’s working practice to review the journal again when new content is published with different publisher. If selected for continued indexing, ERIC will establish an agreement with the new publisher. This is stated on page 8 of the ERIC Selection Policy.”
Therefore ERIC has assigned Psycho-Educational Research Reviews to Spring 2023 review cycle to allow time for a few issues to be published.
Thank you for your understanding.
