Review Process

The Journal of Classroom Interaction has been publishing significant research articles for 50 years. The Journal has a 9-15% acceptance rate for each issue. Ninety percent of the published volumes are open issues with the remainder being thematic. Each manuscript is double blind reviewed by members of the standing review board and/or guest reviewers. The review process usually takes 9-12 weeks, somewhat longer if received in December, January or during the summer months. Authors whose manuscripts are accepted for review are provided with critiques. New researchers have the same opportunity to publish in the Journal as a veteran researcher. All authors are encouraged to submit their current research incorporating active data collection on aspects of classroom interaction.
