Peer Review Process Link
Peer Review Policy
When papers successfully passed through double blind review stage the Chair establishes a Review Team comprising three reviewers, including, if possible, a reviewer requested by the author. The Chair then contacts the author to tell them who is on their Review Team, and asks them to upload their paper to the open review space. If the paper is not to go forward to the next stage of the review process at this time the Chair will tell the author/s why and what action they might find helpful to consider.When the author has placed their paper in the Open Review Space author and reviewers are expected to work towards a paper that meets the following criteria for publication using the following questions as a guide (‘author’ is used to mean one or more authors):1. Is there sufficient detail for a reader to understand the value-based explanation of the author for their educational influence in their own learning, the learning of others and the learning of the social formations where they live and work? Is the author transparent about what constitutes their driving values, why and how these are manifested in their practice, and through what process of reflection. In other words, has the author provided sufficient detail of their living-educational-theory, (their valid explanation of their educational influence in their own learning and most importantly, in the learning of others and or social formations within which they practice) for it to be understood?2. Is it potentially comprehensible to an audience interested in extending their knowledge of the transformational possibilities of Living Educational Theory research? By this we mean an audience who wishes to develop their understanding of how their core life-affirming and life-enhancing, ontological and relational values inform and transform their lives, personally and professionally.
