Submission Guidelines

***The Journal of Education for International Development is accepting submissions until August 31, 2010. The upcoming issue of JEID will be the final edition of the journal.***

All submissions are first reviewed by the JEID editor. Successfully screened articles are sent to at least one independent peer reviewer for review. The cycle of review and editing continues until JEID and the author reach agreement. JEID reserves the right to make final edits before publication.

JEID publishes different kinds of articles, including research, case studies, policy analyses, and analyses of new tools and methodologies. Authors are invited to submit articles on new issues and ideas in the field of education and development on topics such as cross-sectoral programming, educating out-of-school youth, the transition from school to work, education in emergencies, secondary education, and HIV/AIDS and education. JEID also welcomes submissions addressing such broad issues as financing education, policy reform for education and training, or promoting successful educational practices in the classroom, school, and community.

Topics being considered for Volume 5 (2010) include:

  • Non-formal education (programs that target learners outside the bounds of traditional schooling)

  • Early Childhood Educational Programs: Topics might include receptiveness of policy environment to such programming; their implementation; and evaluation

  • Inclusive Education (programs that target marginalized populations such as special needs, orphans and other vulnerable children)

  • Assessment in Development (success stories; constraints and challenges to monitoring and evaluation in developing countries)

  • Youth Employment and Education (programs that target workforce development skills for students).

JEID enthusiastically supports contributions for subscribers to topics. Please send suggestions to
