Peer-review is the system used to assess the quality of an article before it is published. Independent researchers in the relevant research area assess submitted articles for originality, validity and significance to help editors determine whether the article should be published in their journal.
Digital Games in Education operates a double-blind peer-review system, where the reviewers do not know the names or affiliations of the authors and the reviewer reports provided to the authors are anonymous.
Submitted articles will generally be reviewed by two to three experts who will be asked to evaluate whether the article is scientifically sound and coherent, whether it duplicates already published work, and whether or not the article is sufficiently clear for publication. Reviewers will also be asked to indicate how interesting and significant the research is. The Editors will reach a decision based on these reports and, where necessary, they will consult with members of the Editorial Board.
