All submissions go through a two-step review process
Step 1: Initial Review
Editor-in-chief first reviews each manuscript to see if it meets the aims and scope of ETI and that it is of sufficient quality to merit external peer review.
Step 2: External Peer Review
Eligible submissions are peer-reviewed by three anonymous reviewers selected by the editor-in-chief or associate editors. The handling editor selects three referees who have expertise in the area associated with the submitted manuscript. The final recommendation on the manuscript is made by the editor-in-chief. The corresponding author is notified once a final decision is made. When the final revised manuscript is completely acceptable according to the ETI format and criteria, it is scheduled for publication in the next available issue.
Each submission is evaluated on the following aspects:
a) Does the content of the manuscript match the scope of the journal?
b) Is the research original, novel, and important to the field?
c) Is the research method clear and logical?
d) Is the overall academic writing clear and of high quality?
e) Does the paper provide novel insights into the readership and the field of educational technology?
a) Is the manuscript appropriately organized?
b) Is the manuscript an appropriate length?
c) Is the title informative?
d) Does the abstract give a clear summary of the results of the manuscript?
e) Does the introduction clearly state the purpose of the research and the critical evaluation of the previous research on the stated research problems/questions?
f) Are the descriptions of the methods and/or the experiment adequate?
g) Do the references include important scholarly work in the field?
h) Is the quality of figures and tables suitable?
i) Are the discussion and conclusion comprehensive?
j) Is the manuscript free from grammatical errors?
