International Journal of Multicultural Education

International Journal of Multicultural Education (IJME) is a peer-reviewed open-access journal for scholars, practitioners, and students of multicultural education. Committed to promoting educational equity for diverse students, cross-cultural understanding, and global justice for marginalized people in all levels of education, including leadership and policies, IJME publishes three types of articles: (1) empirical research reports that explicitly address multicultural educational issues and typically engages qualitative research methods in robust manners (if specified in the call for submissions, some special issues may accept quantitative studies); (2) conceptual and theoretical articles, typically grounded on in-depth literature review, which advance theories and scholarship of multicultural education; and (3) praxis articles that discuss successful multicultural education practices grounded on sound theories and literature.  We particularly encourage submissions resulted from meaningful and ethical collaboration among international scholars and practitioners. Submissions that advance from prescreening will be subject to originality-testing and double-blind review. 

IJME is indexed with several international databases such as ESCI. Scopus, ERIC, and Ebscohost. According to SJR, IJME is placed in the first quartile of 630 globally select social science journals. The journal is among the 10 most impactful open-access journals in the category of "cultural studies." During the year of 2016, IJME articles were downloaded over 76,000 times by global readers from 121 countries. The 3-year-average acceptance rate between 2014 and 2016 is 17%. 

The institutional sponsors and the voluntary service of international editors and reviewers have enabled IJME to provide the open-access content to the global community with no subscription fees to readers and no article processing fees to authors. We ask you to use IJME content according to the fair use principle and to cite it properly to help us continue with the open-access operation.
