More on this journal...

The objective of IJQRE is to provide a forum for professionals, academics, researchers, and policy makers and students to share, critique and exchange ideas through the use of quantitative methods in research to answer questions related to education.


All professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers and students in the fields of education, psychology and training and development with interests in the use of quantitative methods as the primary research design.


IJQRE publishes original papers that include at least one method of quantitative data analysis. In addition, innovative or provocative approaches to quantitative research as well as the way research is reported are encouraged. Theoretical papers are also welcome. These may be those that discuss original methods useful for the applied statistician in educational research such as new methods of analysis, critical reviews of current practice or tutorials of less well-known methods. IJQRE also publishes book reviews.
