Publication and publishing a scholarly periodical is a long and complicated road that IJNE is in the start line of this marathon. We are trying to follow the best practice guidelines as much as possible, but in a step by step fashion. Here we promised to include the Crossmark icon in all of our volumes in the future, for example.
For now, IJNE accept many kinds of scholarly and scientific contents that included in the following lists (through out a very strict peer review process):
Different Publication Types
Here is a list of article types and their description:
- Publication item giving additional information regarding another publication item, mostly presenting additional results.
- Case report
- Used in medical literature: A detailed report of the symptoms, signs, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of an individual patient.
- Letter to the editor or a reply to the letter.
- Argumentative communication, like papers in a discussion, but also perspectives, commentaries, etc.
- Accidental duplication of an article in another periodical. The text of the article is retracted. The HTML pages are replaced by a single page with citation details and an explanation. The PDF pages remain with a watermark on every page to notify it is a duplicate.
- Article in which errors are reported that were made in an earlier publication in the same journal. Can be Erratum (publishing error) but also Corrigendum (author error).

- Short Review
- Short or mini-review.
Scholarly articles regardless of published in print and/or online scholarly journals are reviewed by experts in a process known as peer review before they are published. They are written for other scholars or experts.
Here is a list of different types of scholarly articles.
- original research (empirical) article
- based on an experiment or study. This type of article will have a methodology section that tells how the experiment was set up and conducted, a results or discussion section, and usually a conclusion section. In psychology courses, you are often asked to find empirical articles. Empirical articles are original research articles.
- review article (literature review or systematic review)
- written to bring together and summarize the results/conclusions from multiple original research articles/studies. These types of article will not usually have a methodology section, and they generally have very extensive bibliographies.
- theoretical article
- written to contribute to the theoretical foundations of a field of study. In this type of article, an author will draw upon existing research to form a new theory or explore theories in new ways.
Other content you may find in scholarly journals including IJNE
- book review
- while written by scholars, book reviews in scholarly journals are meant to provide a summary of a newly published book. Book reviews can lead to the discovery of new sources to investigate.
- while written by editors of scholarly journals, these articles are summaries of content included in a specific issue of a journal. Editorials can lead to the discovery of new sources to investigate.
