Submit an Article

Before submitting an article, authors should read The Independent Journal of Teaching and Learning specifications under editorial policies and author specifications. Authors have to indicate whether an article has already been submitted to another journal or whether it has already been published in copyrighted proceedings. They must do this by downloading, signing, and submitting with the article an originality confirmation available on this website under editorial policies and author specifications. 

Once authors are sure they comply with the specifications and have a signed originality confirmation they may submit. Please use the submit article icon on this page to upload your article, abstract and originality confirmation for submission.

​​ Peer Review Process

The Independent Journal of Teaching and Learning (The IJTL) uses a robust, multiple peer review process to ensure that the knowledge is tested and evaluated before publication of the new findings.

Neither author nor reviewer information is ever associated with one another. The IJTL uses a panel of education experts per edition both from South Africa and abroad who themselves are well published and regarded to contribute to the double blind peer-review process and ensure fair and critical review of each article.  All accepted articles are put through Turn It In software. The Turn It In report is sent to any authors that have a 10% or more similarity report. The authors need to affect changes so as to ensure that there is no exact replication of existing information.

The reviewer reports are com bined into a single report generated to supply comprehensive feedback. This is a double blind peer review process with a minimum of two reviewers per paper. If there is any conflict between reviewers, a third party reviewer is brought in. An internal review is also conducted.

Post-acceptance, all papers go through an extensive copy-editing process where references and citations are checked for accuracy.


Reviewers are thanked in each edition for their contribution and the use of their expertise. They are named but are not associated with the article that they reviewed so that anonymity is ensured between reviewer and author.
