An initial evaluation of the relevance of the manuscripts, as defined above, will be provided by the editor. Manuscripts that are judged relevant will be peer reviewed (blind review).
Submission implies that the manuscript has not been published and is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere
Reviewers evaluate both the reliability and writing quality of a manuscript. Reviewers also provide another opinion on the relevance or contribution that a manuscript makes to the accounting education literature. Assessing reliability depends on whether a manuscript is empirical or non-empirical. The reliability of empirical papers depends on the research design used, statistical analysis conducted, and whether conclusions and implications being drawn are logically consistent with the results. The reliability of non-empirical papers is generally evaluated on the basis of supporting arguments or quality of instructional materials provided. Manuscripts that describe or present instructional materials should provide some type of assessment that supports the successful prior use of the materials.
Ethical Responsibilities (The complete publication ethics and malpractice statement can be downloaded here - statement)
Authors writing for EDUCADE should follow the following guidelines:
a) Avoid cultural bias in language by describing individuals and groups with precision and sensitivity.
b) Ensure that they have permission to publish from the institution that has financed the research.
c) Ensure that they have the relevant permission to partially reproduce material (text, tables or figures) from other publications and that they correctly cite their sources.
d) Declare any commercial association that might involve a conflict of interests in connection with the article that they have submitted.
e) Only those people that have made an intellectual contribution to the development of the paper should figure in the list of authors. To have assisted in researching the information or with a certain technique is not, in itself, sufficiently good reason to appear as an author. The Review declines any responsibility for possible conflicts that may arise over the authorship of the works that it publishes.
The points of view and the opinions expressed in the articles that are published in the Review are wholly a matter for the author and will not necessarily reflect those of the Editorial Team. Both the Editorial Board and AECA decline any responsibility for the content of the material that is published.
