Peer review process

The publication of an article in the JBER relies solely on scientific validity and coherence assessed by our editors and/or peer reviewers, who will also assess whether the writing is understandable and whether the work represents a useful contribution to the field. JBER acknowledges the efforts and suggestions made by the reviewers.

Initial evaluation of the script

The editor will evaluate all submitted manuscripts first. Although rare, it is quite possible that an extraordinary manuscript could be received at this stage. Those rejected at this stage are not sufficiently original, have serious scientific deficiencies, or fall outside the aims and scope of JBER. Those who meet the minimum criteria are forwarded to experts for review.

Type of peer review

Submitted manuscripts will generally be reviewed by two or more experts who will be asked to evaluate whether the manuscript makes scientific sense, whether it is a duplicate of an already published work, and whether the manuscript is clear enough to be published or not. The method used is blind peer review.

Review report

Reviewers are asked to evaluate whether the manuscript:

• Be original by clearly stating the purpose and gap

• Is it methodologically reasonable

• Follow appropriate ethical guidelines

• Have clearly presented results/findings and support conclusions

• Correct references to relevant previous work

• Reviewers are not expected to proofread or copyedit manuscripts. Language correction is not part of the peer review process.


The reviewer advises the editor, who is responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the article. The Editors will make decisions based on this report and, if necessary, they will consult with members of the Editorial Board. The editor's decision is final.

Plagiarism screening will be carried out by the editors of the Journal Of Biology Education Research (JBER) using similarity software (Turnitin). Manuscripts must have a similarity index of less than 30%. We will return the manuscript to the author if the similarity index is more than 30%. Authors may rewrite manuscripts to meet our requirements in this regard and resubmit manuscripts that have been rewritten. Manuscripts that are resubmitted will go into a new screening process, and if for any reason the similarity index is still above 30%, the editor will reject the manuscript.
