Peer Review Protocol: the EJPE is grounded upon an authoritative, constructive and efficient peer-review process. On receiving a submission, the EJPE editors assess its interest for the journal and whether it should be passed on for peer-review. All retained article submissions are anonymously reviewed by 2 to 3 external referees with relevant expertise. Where reviewers disagree substantially, the editors may request further referee reports or arbitrate using their own judgement. The editors may also commission further review of a revised paper by the original referees if they consider it necessary. Referees are encouraged to provide constructive feedback and advice for the author whatever their overall recommendation. EJPE aims to provide authors with the full review reports and a formal notification of (conditional) acceptance or rejection within 2-3 months of submitting an article.
