The International Journal of Innovative Research in Education (IJIRE) is a scholarly publication supported by Cyprus Educational Sciences Association and Near East University.


Issues (30 June and 30 December) are published Twice a Year (CONTINUOUS). An article that is accepted to be published by the editor after passing through the referee process is published with a DOI number before the entire issue is published. Then, within the last week of the issue's publication date, the issue is published with its cover and the issue's DOI number. After the issue and its cover are published, accepted articles received thereafter, are published in a new issue.

Ethics in Publishing

The Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), which takes privacy issues seriously and is devoted to protecting your personal information, has established ethical norms that IJIRE mandates all authors abide by.

 Publication Guidelines

In order to provide peer-reviewed research that is freely available online and downloadable, IJIRE strongly promotes the publication of research from all over the world. IJIRE creates and adheres to broad principles to support authors and researchers and to make clear our stance on important issues in order to accomplish this goal. It is a usual rule that the editor of the journal alone and solely chooses whether or not to publish the articles submitted to the journal. The editor must adhere to the editorial board's guidelines when making this choice.

IJIRE's publishing guidelines consist of:

  1. Availability

IJIRE continuously works to ensure that all users may view publications in their entirety. IJIRE is devoted to delivering long-term, sustainable access to qualified scientific research for everyone and makes open access (OA) publications accessible online to readers without any financial, legal, or technical constraints or consequences.

  1. Originality

The submitted work must be original and must not have been published anywhere else in any language before, according to the publication rules that all writers and researchers must follow. Unless the editors have consented to co-publishing, work should not be submitted concurrently to more than one publication.

  1. Authorship

Research publications' authorship should clearly identify each author's contributions to the work. The study team and article authors should be clearly identified in the list of authors. For collaborative research, the contributions of each author should be specified and explained.

  1. Impropriety and unnecessary publication

IJIRE adheres to the COPE criteria in situations where research misconduct is suspected or reported. If there is significant evidence of misconduct, efforts are taken to repair the scientific record, such as publishing a correction, retracting the study, or withdrawing the publication. Plagiarism, fabrication, or falsification in the design, conduct, or review of a study, as well as in the reporting of its findings, are all examples of research misconduct. Fabrication is the act of creating information to be used in records or reports. Falsification involves changing or omitting data or outcomes so that the research is not accurately recorded in the research record. It can also involve manipulating research tools, techniques, or materials. Plagiarism is the unwarranted use of another person's thoughts, methods, output, or words without giving due credit.

Please email the journal if you have any concerns regarding possible wrongdoing. Write to the editor-in-chief, chief editor, or editorial director of the journal, as applicable. Journal editors will follow the applicable COPE standards whenever misconduct is detected.

  1. Article Withdrawal and Retraction

Articles may be removed from the IJIRE database when they violate professional ethical rules and principles.

  1. Remaining discreet

Any potential breach of participant confidentiality or data protection should be carefully examined by editors. This involves having editorial standards that adhere to principles on participant confidentiality, requiring adequately informed consent for the actual research presented, and consent for publication where appropriate.

Peer Review Method

Peer review is a method used to make sure that only high-quality research is published. It is an impartial procedure that is the foundation of excellent scholarly publishing and is applied to all credible scientific journals. As a result, our reviewers are essential to upholding the International Journal of IJIRE's high standards, and all articles are peer-reviewed in accordance with the process described below.

We employ plagiarism detection tools like iThenticate or Turnitin during the evaluation process. Therefore, it is advised that authors check their works for plagiarism using IThenticate, Turnitin, or other free tools.

Initial assessment of the manuscript

All manuscripts are initially assessed by the Editors. Those that are rejected at this stage are either not sufficiently creative, include significant scientific errors, exhibit poor grammar or English, or fall outside the journal's objectives and purview. Those that satisfy the basic requirements are sent to a minimum of two experts for review.

Within two weeks of receipt, authors of manuscripts that are rejected at this stage will be notified.

Peer Review Types

This journal uses double-blind reviewing, in which the author and referee are both kept anonymous.

How to choose a referee?

Referees are assigned to papers based on their areas of expertise. Our database is updated frequently. Though these suggestions may or may not be adopted, we appreciate the author's proposals for referees.

How much time is spent on the review procedure?

The manuscript will typically be reviewed in two months. A second expert opinion will be requested if the referees' reports conflict with one another or if a report is excessively delayed. A conflict-of-interest statement is signed by all of our referees. Within two weeks, revised submissions are often sent back to the original referees. Referees have the right to ask for many revisions of a work.

Last Report

The author will receive a final decision on whether to accept or reject the work, along with any suggestions provided by the referees and perhaps even their verbatim feedback.

Finality of Editors' Decision

The Editors, who have the last say on whether to approve or reject an item, are suggested by referees. The researchers are required to maintain the data for 5 years. Due to our publishing policies, the authors may occasionally be asked for some of the data and analytic results.

Sending of Documents Following Acceptance

1) The accepted article's final draft, written using the IJIRE Template

2) Official Certificate of Proofreading

3) The Turnitin or iTenticate Similarity Report does not exceed 10%.
