Abstract Review Process

Abstract Review Process

TEPE Conference operates a system of double-blind peer review. A submitted abstract is assessed by at least two reviewers.
Notification of Acceptance or Rejection
Authors are usually informed of acceptance or rejection within four weeks of abstract submission. Accepted authors will receive an email notifying them of the results, as well as an official letter of acceptance as a PDF.

Assessment Criteria
The following assessment criteria may act as a guide when reviewing abstracts, and these should be taken into account as the reviewer decides.

The abstracts are appraised whether the novel concepts or approaches are used, whether the study challenges existing paradigms, or involves development of new methodologies, whether the study adds genuinely new information to current knowledge, or strengthen previous findings.

Does the abstract address an important issue regarding teacher education policies and TEPE 2019 Conference theme? How does the study advance scientific knowledge in the field? What effect do the results have on the concepts or methods that drive progress in the field?

Quality of Research Design and Data Analysis
Is the study design clearly described? Are sampling procedures adequately described, including inclusion and exclusion criteria? Is there potential selection bias? Are the measures reliable and valid? Are possible confounding factors addressed? Are the statistical analyses appropriate for the study design?

Are the conclusions clearly stated? How well are the conclusions supported by the data? Are conclusions overstated in relation to the results?

Quality of presentation
Is the abstract clearly written? Can the study aims, methods and findings be easily understood?
