Peer Review

All full research papers undergo an academically rigorous and thorough double blind review process by two qualified reviewers. The editor and editorial collective make final decisions based on the reviews. Reviews take between 4-6 months, depending on response of reviewers. Some are shorter. The review process may, however, take longer than this.

Keynote, Viewpoint and Think Piece papers are reviewed by one reviewer and/or journal editor(s). Reviews are reviewed by one reviewer or a journal editor - ensuring no competing or conflict of interest. The editor and editorial collective make final decisions based on the reviews.

SAJEE actively supports an author development programme for new authors. When reviewing papers reviewers are encouraged to provide constructive suggestions as to how the paper may be improved. This forms a key part of capacity building for journal writing and scholarship development.

Reviewers are encouraged to consider criteria such as: clarity and appropriateness of expression, importance to environmental education/ ethics/ action; organisation, originality; theoretical grounding; adequacy if discussion and interpretation; adequacy of results/ conclusions. A reviewer guide is included through the online AJOL system on invitation to review.
