Wherever possible, the paper should follow the traditional layout: introduction (motivation, problem identification and a short literature survey), present investigation (background, method, materials, subjects, results and discussion), and conclusion.


All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in an acknowledgments section of the title page, i.e. not listed in the main manuscript. Examples of those who might be acknowledged include a person who provided purely technical help, writing assistance, or a department chairperson who provided only general support. Financial and material support should also be acknowledged. NB! Acknowledgements should be added to the Title page that is separated from the main manuscript.

Conflict of interest and funding

Authors are responsible for disclosing financial support from the industry or other conflicts of interest that might bias the interpretation of results. All submitted manuscripts must include a ‘Conflict of interests and finding’ section listing all competing interests (financial and non-financial).

Double Blind- Peer Review Process

Papers submitted to Eurasian Journal of Higher Education are subject to rigorous peer review to ensure that the research published is 'good science'. Authors are not told who reviewed their paper. The referees’ identity remains unknown to the authors throughout the review process.

Manuscripts are sent out for review electronically, and all correspondence takes place via e-mail.

The journal adheres to a 'double blind' peer review process and thus the identity of the authors should remain unknown.

  1. The articles submitted are reviewed by the Managing Editor and, if deemed appropriate in terms of scientific criteria and journal writing rules, author names are removed from the text and sent to the referees.
  2. The authors of the document have deleted their names from the text, with "Author" and year used in the references and footnotes, instead of the authors' name, article title, etc.
  3. With Microsoft Office documents, author identification should also be removed from the properties for the file (see under File in Word), by clicking on the following, beginning with File on the main menu of the Microsoft application: File > Save As > Tools (or Options with a Mac) > Security > Remove personal information from file properties on save > Save.

The reviewers are asked to give their opinion on several issues (reviewer form). All relevant information will be forwarded to the author(s). the reviewers have two possible goals: to ask authors to tighten their arguments based on existing data or to identify areas where more data are needed. Even formal revision may be required if the language or style is sub-standard. The author is given a maximum of 8 weeks for revision otherwise revised manuscript will be considered new submission.

The reviewers will have 4 possible options, for each article:

  • Accept the paper
  • Accept the paper after the minor changes
  • Resubmit after major revisions
  • Decline the submission

NB: Papers may be rejected directly by the Managing Editor if judged to be out of scope or if scientifically or formally sub-standard.

NB: The cover letter and title page revealing the identity of the authors are uploaded separately.

NB: The opinions put forward in the articles published in the journal belong to their authors. The author takes legal and ethical responsibilities.

Additional Considerations

  • We welcome submission of manuscripts from peer-reviewed conferences, which may have already appeared in proceedings.
  • Submissions will be reviewed according to our Reviewer Guidelines.
  • Please provide the ORCID ID for each author in the submission metadata.
  • Authors should suggest 4 potential reviewers. Reviewers will not know the author suggested them. Make sure that your suggestions are not current or recent colleagues of you or your co-authors.
