Five types of manuscripts may be submitted:
Regular (Research) articles: These should describe new and carefully confirmed findings,
and experimental procedures should be given in
sufficient detail for others to verify the work.
A regular article must contain Introduction,
Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, and
Conclusion sections. The length of a full paper should be the minimum
required to describe and interpret the work

Review Articles: A review article is expected to provide a summary
and/or a synthesis of the findings of selected
research contributions being published by other
authors. The main purpose of a review article is
to examine the current state of the relevant
publications on a given topic and to initiate a
discussion about the research methodologies and
the findings related to the said topic.
Therefore, a review article should contain a
comprehensive list of supporting references
being thoroughly cited in the text. The
structure of a review article may differ from
the structure of a regular paper due to the
optional omission of some basic sections such
as: Introduction, Analytic Model, Materials and
Methods, Results, and/or Discussion. Sometimes
it is difficult to classify a paper submission
as a review article.
of reviews and perspectives covering topics of
current interest are welcome and encouraged.
Reviews should be concise and no longer than 4-6
printed pages (about 12 to 18 manuscript pages).
Reviews are also peer-reviewed.

Short Communications: A Short Communication is suitable for recording the results
of complete small investigations or giving
details of new models or hypotheses, gene
isolation and identification, innovative
methods, techniques or apparatus. Short communication is not intended to publish preliminary
results. Only if these results are of
exceptional interest and are particularly
topical and relevant will be considered for

main sections need not conform to that of
full-length papers. Short communications are 2
to 4 printed pages (about 6 to 12 manuscript
pages) in length. Short communication is not
intended to publish preliminary results. Only if
these results are of exceptional interest and

non-exhaustive review-type peer-reviewed articles that are aimed at students and
non-specialist readers with the aim of informing and inspiring those with a
limited background in a subject/topic. Essays can also be a venue for new and
challenging ideas and are often more opinionated than Research and Review
articles. Essays are between 1500 and 4500 words long with no more than 50
references. Essays are also to be peer reviewed. The pattern of writing Essay is

Our Review Process
All manuscripts are reviewed by minimum of two
(2) members of the
reviewers’ board (see link
or editors. Decisions would be made as
rapidly as possible, and the journal strives to
return atleast two (2) reviewers’ assessment to
authors within 3 weeks of author’s submission.
The editorial board will re-review (for
publication approval) manuscripts that are
accepted pending revision by the author. It is
the goal of the OJER to publish
manuscripts within a MONTH after
submission if accepted by the editorial board.
Proofs and Reprints: Electronic
proofs will be sent (e-mail attachment) to the
corresponding author as a PDF file. Page proofs
are considered to be the final version of the
manuscript. With the exception of typographical
or minor clerical errors, no changes will be
made in the manuscript at the proof stage.
Because OJER will be published freely
online to attract a wide audience, authors will
have free electronic access to the full text (in
both HTML and PDF) of the article. Authors can
freely download the PDF file from which they can
print unlimited copies of their articles.
Copyright: Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not
been published before (except in the form of an
abstract or as part of a published lecture, or
thesis) that it is not under consideration for
publication elsewhere; that if and when the
manuscript is accepted for publication, the
authors agree to automatic transfer of the
copyright to the publisher.
Fees and Charges: Authors are required to pay a $400 handling fee. Publication of an
article in the Online Journal of Education
Research is not contingent upon the
author's ability to pay the charges. Neither is
acceptance to pay the handling fee a guarantee
that the paper will be accepted for publication.
Authors that may not be able to pay the $400,
can request that the
editorial office reduce the fee to an amount
that the author can afford to pay. We only accept
payment of handling fee after manuscript has
been accepted for publication. The handling fee
is used for the smooth operation of the journal.
As an open access journal, OJER does not charge
subscription fees to authors and researchers for
viewing or downloading published articles. To
successfully provide open access, OJER use a
model in which our expenses—including
those of peer review, journal production,
employees salary, water bills, online
advertising of published articles (through our
publication alert services), electricity bills,
expenses on purchasing diesel for plant, tax and
online hosting and archiving—are recovered in
part through the publication fee.
