Focus and Scope

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 all, cross-cultural understanding, and global awareness in all levels of education including leadership and policies, IJME publishes (1) reports of empirical research typically in qualitative research orientation (some special issues may publish quantiative studies); (2) literature-based conceptual articles that advance theories and scholarship of multicultural education; and (3) praxis articles that discuss successful multicultural education practices grounded on sound theories. We accept submissions of high quality from the global community.  

Reviews of visual arts, professional and children's books, and multimedia resources will be published until the end of 2015 (submissions are on invitation only).

Peer Review Process

All scholarly submissions (research reports, literature-based articles, and praxis articles) will be initially screened by editors for its basic fitness to the scope of the journal and its adherence to the journal's submission guidelines. Pre-screened manuscripts undergo double-blind review by at least two qualified reviewers. We strive to provide reviewer feedback within three months; however, a variety of reasons could slow down the process. Since we rely on the gracious pro bono services of professionals and their availability, the editorial team requests authors' patience.

Revision of a manuscript does not guarantee publication. All editorial communication is conducted through the OJS to expedite the publication process. Therefore, it is necessary that authors submit their manuscript directly to the journal site. Authors will be able to follow the progress of their submission in the OJS.

 

Publication Frequency

From 2015 three issues will be published annually: Spring issues (typically on special themes) will be available by the end of February, Summer issues by the end of June, and Fall issues by the end of October. No submission deadline is applied to open-theme issues. However, submission deadlines are imposed for special issuesl please see the call for submissions for each special issue at the special issues link.
