Editorial Policy

1. The SAJEE Editors subscribe to the open access publishing best practice code of the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf). 

2. All papers published in the journal should have a clear focus on environmental education, and/or Education for Sustainable Development and should be relevant to the field of education. The SAJEE is primarily an education journal, although it is also interdisciplinary and papers from communications, environmental sciences, development studies, labour market analysis etc. may also be relevant, but the core focus of these contributions should be education, communication, social learning and /or public awareness.

3. The journal should seek to continually reflect is regional character, which means that papers from a diversity of countries should be represented in each edition.

4. Full research papers can be either theoretical or empirical, and should include methodological detail, theoretical and/or literature review material and a clear argument as relevant.

5. Ethical procedures also need to be pointed out where relevant.

6. Full research papers submitted to the journal will be blind peer reviewed by two qualified peer reviewers. 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.

7. Review reports are checked and reviewed for the quality and relevance of the review comments by journal editors, and all final review communications are sent to the authors after review by the Editor. Editors are encouraged to rate reviewers in the online review process.

8. Journal editors mediate the blind reviews with authors, and will check that all recommended changes have been substantively attended to. Authors are required to submit a report to the editors documenting how they have responded to reviewers recommendations. If co-editors disagree with proposed outcome, the Editor-in-Chief should be consulted.

9.The SAJEE endeavours to have papers reviewed within a  three to four month period where possible. The review process may, however, take longer than this. The editor will decide if a round 2 review is required. 

10. Papers will be checked for plagiarism using turnitin if editors detect potential plagiarism problems. Authors are fully responsibility for any plagiarism, and should check their own papers before submission. By submitting a paper to the journal, authors agree that journal editors may check the paper via turnitin if necessary.

11. Authors must obtain permissions for all graphics and extensively used citations before submitting the paper to the SAJEE, should these not be original work.

12. Authors are encouraged to cite at least three published pieces relevant to the new submission.

13. Institutional representation may not exceed 25% of the journal compliment per volume.

14. Published authors automatically include themselves as reviewers for future paper submissions that are relevant to them, limited as best possible to once per annum.

15. Errata: Post-publication errors and falsification claims should be brought to the attention of the editorial team. This will be investigated and the online paper will be corrected at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief. In the case of fundamental corrections a notification of correction will be sent to the journal database and posted on the home page.

16. Conflict of Interest: The Editor-in-Chief shall only be permitted to publish papers occasionally in the journal that represent large research programmes that are relevant to EEASA members, or that involve a substantive number of EEASA partners (i.e. they must be field informative). The full double blind review process should be followed and managed by one of the co-editors.

If co-editors submit papers to the journal then these should be dealt with by the Editor-in-Chief and the full double blind review process should be followed as per normal.

Editors may not manage direct or indirect family member submissions. This will be dealt with by the Editor-in-Chief or co-editor and the full double blind review process should be followed as per normal.

17. The SAJEE is published once per annum.

18. The journal is an association journal, and editors are accountable to the EEASA Council.

19. The Editor-in-Chief should provide an annual report on the SAJEE and its publication to EEASA Members at the annual EEASA AGM.

20. Editors / Editors-in-Chief would normally serve a six year term of office. This term of office can be renewed by the EEASA Council.

21. The SAJEE is an open access journal, and pdf versions of all papers are available on the Africa Journal Online (AJOL) website (http://www.ajol.info/sajee) which will enhance its distribution globally under the Creative Commons licence agreement Attribution- Noncommercial-Share-alike (BY-NC-SA)

22. The SAJEE is an accredited journal (South African DHET approved) and editors of the journal will seek to maintain the quality standards necessary for ongoing accreditation of the SAJEE.
