The Uganda Journal of Education (UJE) is a peer-reviewed journal hosted by the College of Education and External Studies, Institute of Education Research Makerere University. It seeks critical reviews and in-depth analyses or study findings in all areas of education. UJE serves as a communication medium among education professionals, policy makers, researchers, students and the community. UJE encourages the dissemination of studies aimed at identifying problems, informing policy and contributing towards reform and the general development of education in the country and region.
The Journal also accepts Conference, Symposia and Workshop announcements, book reviews and has an advertisement section. The articles submitted to UJE are reviewed anonymously (blind review) by three referees: one tracking selected from among the editorial team and two editorial board members. All manuscripts are evaluated for their significance to education and on their technical quality for the type of scholarship represented. All submissions are acted upon as quickly as possible.
The review process usually takes 2-4 weeks. The author will receive galley proofs of the article to read and correct. The UJE Editorial team, reviewers, and contributors, are bound by national and international ethical dictates and try at all times to be guided by the cardinal ethical principles. Contributors must not use sexist language (e.g. the notion that man is a generic term that includes women). United Kingdom English spellings and conventions of usage are preferred. The information and views expressed in UJE are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect those of the Journal, its staff, the institute of Education Research , Makerere University College of Education and External Studies or their partners.
