Therefore, the journal explores and discusses:
- theories of evaluation, assessment and accountability,
- function, role, aims and purpose of evaluation, assessment and accountability,
- impact of evaluation, assessment and accountability,
- methodology, design and methods of evaluation, assessment and accountability,
- principles, standards and quality of evaluation, assessment and accountability,
- issues of planning, coordinating, conducting, reporting of evaluation, assessment and accountability.

The journal also covers the quality of different instruments or procedures or approaches which are used for evaluation, assessment and accountability.

The journal only includes research findings from evaluation, assessment and accountability, if the design or approach of it is meta-reflected in the article.

The journal publishes outstanding empirical works, peer-reviewed by eminent scholars around the world.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
