Journal Information

Journal of Global Education and Research (JGER) is an international non-profit, open access, online double-blind peer-reviewed journal. JGER, as an interdisciplinary journal, aims to bring together researchers, scientists, scholar and graduate students to exchange and share their experiences, new ideas, and research results about all aspects of global education and research and to discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted.

JGER is published bi-annually by the University of South Florida M3 Center. We also encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical research relating to global education in as much detail as possible in order to promote scientific predictions and impact assessments of global change and development in the field of education. Full experimental and methodical details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced.

Anyone may submit an original article to be considered for publication in Journal of Global Education and Research provided he or she owns the copyright to the work being submitted or is authorized by the copyright owner or owners to submit the article. Authors are the initial owners of the copyrights to their works (an exception in the non-academic world to this might exist if the authors have, as a condition of employment, agreed to transfer copyright to their employer).
