Reviewer (Book Reviews)

Reviews are commissioned by the editors upon the recommendation of the publishers. To avoid courtesy reviews, the Journal for Research on Adult Education - Report does not published unrequested reviews. 

Reviews cover current publications from the field as well as from relevant reference disciplines. They briefly describe and discuss the content and critically evaluate the publication at hand. Despite the mostly objective description of the article in question, reviews always contain the subjectively commented view of the reviewer to encourage the reader to independently analyse the reviewed publication.

Reviewer (Peer Reviews)

Since 2006, the articles undergo a double-blind peer review process, which meets internationally acknowledged standards. The editors suggest a minimum of two reviewers per contribution, who are addressed by the editorial team and provided with anonymised contributions. The review forms contain a confidential part, which presents 9 criteria. The grading between 1 (complied) and 3 (not complied) or 0 (incorrect) enables a standardised assessment for classifying the contribution as "accepted", "accepted and improvement recommended" or "rejected". In addition, the reviewers are asked for an expertise in their own words, which is then anonymised and made available to the authors.

The review as well as the editor's statement are summarised and communicated to the author. After the revision, the contribution is re-examined by the responsible editor regarding the reviewers recommendations and published.
