The review process typically takes 1-2 months, but may take longer for manuscripts of more than 10,000 words or if reviewers with specialised expertise are required. Those interested in reviewing for the journal should register at https://ijeap.org/ijeap/user/register, providing 3-5 keywords describing their areas of interest and their methodological and substantive expertise. Once the four stages of the review process are complete, the article will be sent to the reviewer by the editor to begin the peer review process, which is conducted by up to three reviewers using the Double-Blind Peer Review method. The reviewer can give his recommendation such as:
