Guide for Submission

I.

The mission of the "Journal of Research in Education Sciences" is to publish original research papers in the domain of education (principles of instruction, learning, and assessment; educational administration and strategy; learning courses ; science and technology education). All papers that present educational concepts and results of research and development obtained through empirical research methods, such as methods of quantitative research, qualitative research, or a combination of both, are solicited by this journal. This journal welcomes evaluative papers that show criticalness and creative, innovative thinking. Due to considerable editorial and review costs, if the discipline of a submitted paper does not match the education domain described above, such a paper will be rigorously examined during the initial review period to examine its degree of compatibility with the mission of this journal. A decision will then be made as to whether to proceed with subsequent review processes.
