CORERJ is an online journal for higher-degree students to share their on-going or completed work with peers and the wider academic community. Unique to CORERJ is its use of open reviewing, in addition to the traditional peer-review (for more information, click here). Open reviewing involves placing a non-anonymised manuscript in an online forum (normally accessible via a registration process) to receive commentary from the public (including other student, academic staff, and professionals) who engage in a dialogue about the material and decide the paper's publication eligibility.

CORERJ’s aims

  • Create a forum for students to share their work with peers, academic and professional communities, and the public.
  • Provide students with opportunities to receive feedback about their work, as well as network other students and experts in the field.
  • Encourage accountability and transparency in academic publishing.
  • Support the development of students in educational research. 

CORERJ’s focus and scope

  • CORERJ publishes articles that focus on research by higher degree students that is either on-going or completed.
  • The scope of articles that are published is broad, including short research notes to final reports that bear relevance to students’ research and the field of education.

Publication frequency

CORERJ produces one publication per academic year.


This journal charges no fees for article submission, processing or publication.
