The Policy of Screening for Plagiarism All manuscripts must be free from plagiarism contents. Manuscripts submitted to the Iranian Journal of Educational Research (IJER) will be screened for plagiarism using similarity check and plagiarism detection tools. All authors are suggested to use plagiarism detection software to check the similarity before submitting their manuscript to the journal. Editors check the plagiarism detection of manuscripts in the Iranian Journal of Educational Research (IJER)  by using iThenticate (www.ithenticate.com) and Grammarly detection software (www.grammarly.com). The journal will immediately reject papers leading to plagiarism or self-plagiarism. Whenever it is determined that the manuscript has not complied with the plagiarism rules, it will be REJECTED (before acceptance for publication), and if it was published, it will be RETRACTED for plagiarism issues.
   The Iranian Journal of Educational Research (IJER) aims at ensuring that all authors are careful and comply with international standards for academic integrity, particularly on the issue of plagiarism. Plagiarism occurs when an author takes ideas, information, phrases, or words from another source without proper credit to the source. Even when it occurs unintentionally, plagiarism is still a serious ethical violation and unacceptable in scientific academic publications. When the author takes an idea from another author, a citation is required even if the author then develops the idea further. This might be an idea about how to interpret the data, either what methodology to use or what conclusion to draw. It might be an idea about broad developments in a field or general information. Regardless of the idea, authors should cite their information sources. In cases where the author develops the idea further, it is still necessary to cite the original source of the idea, and then in a subsequent sentence, the author can explain his or her more developed idea. When the author takes words from another author, a citation and quotation marks are required. Whenever four or more consecutive words are identical to a source that the author has read, the author must use quotation marks to denote the use of another author's original words; just a citation is no longer enough.
Retraction Policy An article may be retracted when its findings are no longer considered trustworthy due to scientific misconduct or error, it plagiarizes previously published work, or it is found to violate ethical guidelines. An article may be retracted when the integrity of the published work is substantially undermined owing to errors in the conduct, analysis, and/or reporting of the research. Violation of publication or research ethics may also result in a study’s retraction. The original paper will be marked as RETRACTED but a PDF version remains available to readers, and the RETRACTION statement is bi-directionally linked to the original published paper. Retraction statements will typically include a statement of assent or dissent from the authors.
Type of Publication (Processing Charges and Publication Charges) Publication charges are required from the Iranian authors (No review costs, but the Iranian authors must pay 6,000,000 Iranian Rials as article publication charges after acceptance, and foreign authors are exonerated from the publication charges).  There are no charges for rejected articles.
Full-text access: Open Access
Authorship The consent of all authors, as well as related authorities/institutions, have been received prior to the submission of the manuscript.

All authors have contributed significantly to the research. Authors are obligated to participate in the peer review process, providing retractions/corrections/amendments when necessary. All conflicts of interest/financial support have been declared. Any changes or corrections to a published work require the consent of all authors.

Policy for Dealing with Complaints Once a complaint is received, at first, an acknowledgment is sent to the complainant with the assurance that appropriate action will be taken on a complaint within three working days excluding the complaint receiving date. The investigation process is initiated by the journal handling team according to the directions of the Editor-In-Chief. After the investigation is over, a meeting is held with a complete report on the complaint. The decision has been made and the same is forwarded to the concerned scholar through his/her submitted email ID. We consider complaints as an opportunity to enhance our existing Manuscript Processing System. All the received complaints are dealt with in a polite and timely manner with certainty.
Digital Archiving Policy The Iranian Journal of Educational Research (IJER) works with some organizations such as the Islamic World Science Citation Database (ISC), The Iran National Library and Archives, and the own server of the University of Hormozgan for maintaining our own digital archive. This makes possible the permanent availability and preservation of scholarly research and ensures accessibility by converting and upgrading digital file formats to comply with new technology standards.
I4OC Standards for Open Citations Yes. The journal complies with I4OC standards for open citations.
Data Citation Data should be cited in the same way as article, book, and web citations, and authors are required to include data citations as part of their reference list. Data citation is appropriate for data held within institutional, subject-focused, or more general data repositories. It is not intended to take the place of community standards such as in-line citation of GenBank accession codes. When citing or making claims based on data, authors must refer to the data at the relevant place in the manuscript text and in addition provide a formal citation in the reference list. The Iranian Journal of Educational Research (IJER) follows the format proposed by the Joint Declaration of Data Citation Principles: Authors; Year; Dataset title; Data repository or archive; Version (if any); Persistent identifier (e.g. DOI)”.
Data Sharing Policy The Iranian Journal of Educational Research (IJER) uses the Basic Data Sharing Policy. The journal is committed to a more open research landscape, facilitating faster and more effective research discovery by enabling reproducibility and verification of data, methodology, and reporting standards. The Iranian Journal of Educational Research (IJER) encourages authors to cite and share their research data including, but not limited to: raw data, processed data, software, algorithms, protocols, methods, and materials. Authors are encouraged to share or make open the data supporting the results or analyses presented in their article where this does not violate the protection of human subjects or other valid privacy or security concerns.
   The Iranian Journal of Educational Research (IJER) encourages authors to share the data and other artifacts supporting the results in the article by archiving it in an appropriate public repository. Authors should include a Data Accessibility Statement, including a link to the repository they have used, in order that this statement can be published alongside their paper.
   The Iranian Journal of Educational Research (IJER) requires authors of Original Investigation, and Special Paper articles to (1) place the de-identified data associated with the manuscript in a repository, and (2) include a Data Availability Statement in the manuscript describing where and how the data can be accessed. The Iranian Journal of Educational Research (IJER) defines data as the digital materials underlying the results described in the manuscript, including but not limited to spreadsheets, text files, interview recordings or transcripts, images, videos, output from statistical software, and computer code or scripts. Authors are expected to deposit at least the minimum amount of data needed to reproduce the results described in the manuscript. Data can be placed in any repository that makes data publicly available, providing a unique persistent identifier, including institutional repositories, general repositories (e.g., Figshare, Open Science Framework, Zenodo, Dryad, Harvard Dataverse, OpenICPSR), or discipline-specific repositories. The Data Availability Statement should be placed in the manuscript at the end of the main text before the references. This statement must include (1) an indication of the location of the data; (2) a unique identifier, such as a digital object identifier (DOI), accession number, or persistent uniform resource locator (URL); and (3) any instructions for accessing the data, if applicable. At the point of submission, you will be asked if there is a data set associated with the paper. If you reply yes, you will be asked to provide the DOI, pre-registered DOI, hyperlink, or other persistent identifier associated with the data set(s). If you have selected to provide a pre-registered DOI, please be prepared to share the reviewer URL associated with your data deposit, upon request by reviewers. Where one or multiple data sets are associated with a manuscript, these are not formally peer-reviewed as a part of the journal submission process. It is the author’s responsibility to ensure the soundness of the data. Any errors in the data rest solely with the producers of the data set(s).
Please note: As you are submitting your manuscript to the Iranian Journal of Educational Research (IJER) where submissions are double-blind peer-reviewed, the main text file should not include any information that might identify the authors (i.e., Author Name, Address, Conflict of Interest, and fund-related information). As a data availability statement could reveal your identity, we recommend removing this from the anonymized version of the manuscript. Exceptions to this policy will be made in rare cases in which de-identified data cannot be shared due to their proprietary nature or participant privacy concerns. Exceptions to policy and restrictions on data availability are granted for reasons associated with the protection of human privacy, issues such as biosafety, and/or to respect terms of use for data obtained under license from third parties. Confidential data, e.g., human subjects or patient data, should always be anonymized, or permission to share should be obtained in advance. If in doubt, authors should seek counsel from their institution’s ethics committee. Authors should include a data accessibility statement, including a link to the repository they have used, in order that this statement can be published alongside their paper. Below are some examples.
