Journal of International Education and Leadership (JIEL) is a peer-reviewed electronic journal providing a forum for educators, education leaders, scholars, students, and policy makers to address the current topics in the field of education and leadership from a global perspective. The Journal welcomes articles on analysis of educational and leadership discourses, policy and practice across disciplines, and their implication for teaching, learning, and policy making and the topics of education and leadership and a variety of disciplines to include sociology, anthropology, economics, and a broader scope of cultural studies as they relate to education and leadership. Articles should focus on studies and systematic analyses that employ qualitative, quantitative, plural (mixed-methods), and theoretical methodologies from an international scope. Both pedagogical and andragogical perspectives in teaching and learning are welcome.
Peer – Review Process
All articles will be forwarded to the Editor for initial review for its relevance of theme, significance, and over-all quality. Manuscripts judged to fit the aim and the scope and to be of sufficient quality will then be forwarded to two anonymous reviewers. At the end of the review process authors will be notified as to the status of their manuscripts – accept, revise and resubmit, or reject – and will receive substantive feedback from the reviewers. Review process takes approximately 2-4 weeks.
Newly accepted articles will appear continuously on this site but a new issue will be started every quarter and a new volume every year. This is an online-only journal and hard copies are not provided.
