The International Research Journal of Management, IT and Social sciences uses double blind peer review process, which means that both the reviewer and author name(s) are not allowed to be revealed to one another for a manuscript under review. Manuscripts are assigned to two or more reviewers. Reviewers provide a complete, fair, thoughtful evaluation of manuscripts to ensure all published work meets the goals of the journal.
High priority is given to manuscripts that mark a new and demonstratively significant advancement in research on international students by:
- focusing on under-researched aspects of the field
- focusing on countries or contexts about which little is known
- using under-utilized theories, new frameworks, discourses, and methodologies
- joining theory and research
Reviewers evaluate manuscripts based on the following criteria:
- Significance: Does the manuscript represent a new and demonstratively significant advancement in research on international students?
- Review of Literature: Does the manuscript include a well-organized and analytical review of relevant literature?
- Does the manuscript use a clear and well-developed theoretical/conceptual framework?
- Research Design: Does the manuscript reflect appropriate design and methodology? Does the manuscript reflect high quality data and analysis?
- Discussion: Does the discussion and conclusion highlight the relevance of the findings for research, policy, and practice?
- Style: Is the manuscript clear, logical, and concise? Does the manuscript follow APA publication guidelines?
