Aims and Scopes

 | Post date: 2019/04/5 | 
The Iranian Evolutionary Educational Psychology Journal (IEEPJ) aims to publish original, primary psychological research pertaining to education across all ages and educational levels. The second aim of the IEEPJ is the occasional publication of exceptionally important theoretical and review articles that are pertinent to educational psychology. The IEEPJ aims to publish articles, which have a broad international appeal to researchers and practitioners in education. We welcome empirical and methodological papers, experimental studies, observations of classroom behaviors, interviews, and surveys. Important criteria in the selection process are quality of argument and execution, clarity in presentation, and educational significance. Although we tend to publish more quantitative than qualitative studies, we welcome rigorous, empirical qualitative studies and high-quality empirical reports based on experimental and behavioral studies.  
    The Iranian Evolutionary Educational Psychology Journal (IEEPJ) is an international forum for the publication of peer-reviewed original research articles, integrative review articles, special thematic issues, reflections or comments on previous research or new research directions, interviews, replications, and intervention articles - all pertaining to the field of educational psychology. All articles provide breadth of coverage appropriate to a wide readership in educational psychology and sufficient depth to inform specialists in that area.
    The Iranian Evolutionary Educational Psychology Journal (IEEPJ) publishes psychological research that makes a significant contribution to the understanding and practice of education as well as advances the field in terms of theory related to educational psychology. It publishes all types of articles that involve the application of psychological theory and science to the educational process. Of particular relevance are descriptions of empirical research and the presentation of theory designed to either explicate or enhance the educational process.  The journal places great value on the quality of research methodology. This includes the participant sample being representative of the intended population (and not just a sample of convenience), measures having demonstrated psychometric quality including both reliability and validity (avoiding, for example, excessive reliance on self-report measures), literature reviews that support the methods employed, and analyses that are both appropriate and accurately described. The journal publishes quantitative, qualitative, and single-subject design studies that involve the application of psychological science to an important educational process, issue, or problem. The journal does not limit its scope to any age range. Research articles dealing with the education of preschoolers, K-12 children, adults, and the elderly are all relevant if they apply psychological theory and science to the process of education. Likewise, articles that make a substantial contribution to the understanding of individual differences in the process of learning are also appropriate. The journal does not focus on a particular educational setting. Articles applying psychological theory and research methods in school settings, industry, or other formal or informal settings involving adults or children are relevant, assuming they are judged in the review process to advance the science of education.

    The Iranian Evolutionary Educational Psychology Journal (IEEPJ) publishes manuscripts, which focus on the application of evolutionary theory to educational and Learning environments. The journal publishes both empirical and theoretical manuscripts from scholars across a range of disciplines including psychology, anthropology, and human behavioral ecology, including the range of sub-disciplines within educational psychology as well as the developmental studies in education, cultural studies in education, evolved language mechanisms in learning, gender differences in learning, motivational variables, perceptual capabilities, and related Evolutionary and Educational Psychology subjects. Iranian Evolutionary and Educational Psychology Journal publishes both empirical and theoretical manuscripts and welcomes quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-method approaches.
    The Iranian Evolutionary Educational Psychology Journal (IEEPJ) is interested in articles that seek to translate evolutionary and educational reasoning into implications for policy and practice. The journal also publishes reports that present new findings in brief without a lengthy theoretical background. In addition, IEEPJ sees reproducibility as a major challenge facing science in general and encourages the submission of replication studies, especially when they test existing knowledge in ways that probe underlying assumptions, and meta-analyses that assess the overall body of work around a particular question.
