International Journal of Education and Literacy Studies

Literacy has been and will continue to be an important part of our life. Its crucial role in the development of human beings cannot be denied. However, compared with other areas, research in the area of education and literacy is not as impactful as expected to be. One of the ways in which more quality research and better development in the area of education can be realized is through disseminating the research findings of scholars from all parts of the world. With this objective, the International Journal of Education and Literacy Studies (IJELS) was established in 2013. It is an open-access peer-reviewed journal with an ISSN granted by the National Library of Australia.

Ever since its birth, its resourceful and accredited editorial board members have been diligently working to ensure the scientific quality of the articles that are finally accepted for publication. The board is highly sensitive to research and publication ethics. In recent years, the publication market has become highly competitive. Some journals merely value quantity. Despite its rather young age, our journal has proudly published hundreds of impactful research articles from all continents of the world. However, what is more important than quantity for IJELS board members is the quality of the content published in the journal. We make every possible effort to ensure the originality, scientific soundness, and overall quality of the articles before they are accepted for publication. Authors who have worked with us are well aware of the sensitivity of the board to matters of plagiarism, relevance, readability, and quality.

IJELS is a peer-reviewed journal that contributes to research and practice in the area of education and literacy. In addition to research articles, the journal welcomes review articles, conceptual papers, short communications, book reviews, and interviews in the area of education and literacy, novel methodologies in literacy, advancements in literacy research and practice, and creative applications of theories in education and literacy. Authors who are interested to submit their manuscripts to IJELS are requested to ensure that their manuscripts are within the scope of the journal. Both printed and online versions of IJELS are available. IJELS is open-access; authors are charged a processing fee to enable us to make online versions of their papers freely available for an international readership.
