Peer Review Process

Review and Acceptance Process:
The Journal of STEM Education uses a blind review process. The case study or article will be reviewed by teachers, researchers, and practitioners in the appropriate discipline. Frequently, editorial board members will serve as reviewers. In addition, reviewers are appointed on an as-needed basis.

Please note that most papers go through a number of revisions before they are accepted. It normally takes three to six months before an author receives a decision on his/her manuscript.
