  • •Peer Review Process

    International Journal of Childhood, Counselling and Special Education (CCSE) is to be a double-blind peer review academic and scientific journal. All manuscripts submitted for publication should be original. Manuscripts published or under consideration for publication elsewhere should not be submitted and will not be considered. Submission of a paper implies that it has not been published previously, that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and that if accepted it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the Publisher.
    Manuscripts submitted to the journal management system will be evaluated by the editors and section editors within two weeks at the latest. The manuscripts are critically evaluated based on the journal’s submission criteria as follows:

    • Scope of the journal and appropriateness to the field of study
    • Evaluation of the level of similarity with other publications
    • Appropriateness to the writing rules
    • Publication language (APA 6 rules)

    Manuscripts passed from pre-assessment of editors and section editors are forwarded to two referees who are specialized in the field concerned. These referees state their decision, whether or not to accept the submitted manuscript for evaluation, to the publication board within two weeks at the latest. If the referees don’t state an opinion to the publication board, new referees are assigned for reviewing the manuscript. The assigned referees evaluate the study by using a standard manuscript evaluation form. Moreover, the assigned referees may also present their views and thoughts regarding the full paper and send it to the publication board. Evaluation of journal reviewers takes 4 weeks.
    The views of the referees serve as a guide to the editors and the section editors to make a final decision. The final decision always belongs to the editors and the section editors. Referees can state the following four views for the submitted manuscript:

    • Acceptance for publication
    • Acceptance for publication after minor revision is made (it is decided after revisions are evaluated by the editorial board)
    • Reviewing again after a major revision is made. After the revision is completed by the authotes, the study will be evaluated again.
    • It is not accepted for publication (rejection)

    Based on the views of referees, a third or a fourth referee can be assigned. In such case, the same process of evaluation will be performed.
    After reviewers’ evaluation is completed, views of the referees are examined, after at least two weeks, by editors and section editors. Editors and section editors give final decision for the manuscript by taking into consideration the views and suggestions of the referees. The final decision will be formally communicated to the author.

    We aspire to index and adopt the contents of the International Journal of Childhood, Counselling and Special Education (CCSE) within the Scientific Databases.
