About the Journal

International Journal of Multicultural Education (IJME) is a free, 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 publishes three types of articles: (1) qualitative research studies that explicitly address multicultural educational issues; (2) conceptual and theoretical articles, typically grounded on in-depth literature review, which advance theories and scholarship of multicultural education; and (3) praxis articles that discuss successful multicultural education practices grounded on sound theories and literature. We encourage submissions resulted from meaningful and ethical collaboration among international scholars and practitioners. Submissions that advance from prescreening will be subject to originality-testing and double-blind peer review.

IJME is included in several international indexes and databases such as ESCI (Clarivate Analytics), Scopus, ERIC, Ebscohost, and Google Scholar. Our ISSN is 1934-5267.

IJME is ranked by the Scopus citation database as having a site score of 2.1 and a SCImago Journal Rank measure of 4.01. Scopus ranks IJME in the 88th percentile of journals in Cultural Studies and in the 52th percentile in Education. These measures are available at Scopus.com. IJME is included in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). The journal has a readership of more than 23,000 and an acceptance rate of 7-8%.

IJME provides open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge and equitable educational practices.
