JAASEP is a peer reviewed publication. When an article is submitted to JAASEP, it is immediately peer reviewed by at least two experts in the field of study. If the peer reviewers unanimously agree that the article is worthy of acceptance, the article is considered for JAASEP. If at least one peer reviewer does not recommend the article for publication, it is submitted to a different peer reviewer for a recommendation. If two or more peer reviewers agree that the article is not worthy of publication in JAASEP, the submission is not accepted for publication in JAASEP.
JAASEP welcomes submissions at any time, as we have an open submissions policy. We seek papers from the field on a wide variety of issues confronting special education professionals and the exceptional individuals with whom they work.
