What is e-Version FirstTM

e-Version First is a feature offered through our journal platform.

Paper Selection and Publishing Process

a) Submission Acknowledgement

When you submit a manuscript online, you will receive a submission acknowledgement letter sent by the online system automatically. For email submission, the editor or editorial assistant sends an e-mail confirmation to the submission’s author within one to three working days. If you fail to receive this confirmation, please check your bulk email box or contact the editorial assistant by email: ijhe@sciedupress.com.

b) Basic Review

The editor or editorial assistant determines whether the manuscript fits the journal’s focus and scope. Next a check for the similarity rate is done using CrossCheck, powered by iThenticate. Any manuscripts out of the journal’s scope or containing plagiarism, including self-plagiarism, are rejected.

c) Peer Review

We use a double-blind system for peer review; both reviewers’ and authors’ identities remain anonymous. The submitted manuscript will be reviewed by at least two experts: one editorial staff member as well as one to three external reviewers. The review process may take 4-10 weeks.

d) Decision Is Made

The decision to accept or reject an article is based on the suggestions of reviewers. If differences of opinion occur between reviewers, the editor-in-chief will weigh all comments and arrive at a balanced decision based on all comments, or a second round of peer review may be initiated.

e) Notification of the Result of Review

The result of review will be sent to the corresponding author and forwarded to other authors.

f) Article Processing Charge Is Paid

If the submission is accepted, the authors revise paper and pay the Article Processing Charge (600.00USD).

g) Publication Notice

The authors and readers will be notified and invited to visit our website for the newly published articles.

Call for Special Issue Proposals

 

In order to better serve our academic community and deal with more focused topics with high current interest, special issues are welcome at any time during the year in any fields of higher education subjects. They should be organized by recognized experts in the area and attract articles of the highest quality.

Proposals for Special Issue should include the following: 

  • A suggested title for the Special Issue 
  • The journal for which the Special Issue is intended 
  • Proposed Aims and Scope, giving an overview of the Special Issue's intended focus and a list of the topics to be covered 
  • The Guest Editors who are willing to manage the Special Issue, including their names, emails, affiliations, and a short biography 
  • (one paragraph) of each of the Guest Editors 

We would like to cooperate with other institutions to publish special issues. In this regard, the following points should be considered:

1. If you would like to publish a special issue, please discuss it with us at least five months before publication to give us time to prepare.
2. You should pay an article processing charge of 600.00 USD per article. Usually, we publish eight to thirty articles per issue.
3. We will offer you a number of printed journals—usually, two copies of each article.
4. We provide you with a free e-journal in PDF, if you need it.
5. You may nominate guest editors and reviewers for the special issue, and we will list their names in the printed version.
6. You can arrange peer reviews by your nominated guest editors and reviewers; otherwise, our editors and reviewers can do it.
