International Journal of Multicultural Education

International Journal of Multicultural Education (IJME) is a peer-reviewed open-access journal for scholars, practitioners, and students of multicultural education. Committed to promoting educational equity for diverse students, cross-cultural understanding, and global justice for marginalized people in all levels of education, including leadership and policies, IJME primarily publishes (1) empirical research articles that explicitly address multicultural educational issues typically in qualitative research orientation (if specified in the call for submissions, some special issues may accept quantitative studies); (2) conceptual and theoretical articles that advance theories and scholarship of multicultural education based on in-depth literature review; and (3) praxis articles that discuss successful multicultural education practices grounded on sound theories and literature.  We particularly encourage submissions resulted from meaningful and ethical collaboration among international scholars and practitioners. All submissions will be subject to a double-blind review. 

IJME is indexed with numerous international databases such as Scopus, ERIC, and Ebscohost. Based on Scopus data, SJR ranked  IJME as the top 15th open-access journal and in the first quartile of 716 journals in the category of "Cultural Studies."   The 3-year-average acceptance rate of peer-reviewed articles, between 2014 and 2016, is 17%. During the year of 2016, over 20,000 users from 121 countries around the world have accessed the IJME content from its website. Additional readers have accessed the journal content through scholarly databases.

The institutional sponsors and the voluntary service of international editors and reviewers have enabled IJME to provide the open-access content to the global community with no subscription fees to readers and no article processing fees to authors. We ask you to use IJME content according to the fair use principle and to cite it properly to help us continue with the open-access operation.
