Editorial Policy on Submissions to the International Real Estate Review

Journal Objectives

The International Real Estate Review (IRER) is a double-blind refereed academic journal, and associated with the Asian Real Estate Society and the Global Chinese Real Estate Congress. IRER is committed to publishing the highest quality analytical, empirical and clinical research that are useful to business decision-makers in the fields of real estate development, economics, finance, investment, law, management, marketing, secondary markets and valuation. Theoretical papers that fail to provide testable or policy implications and empirical papers that cannot be replicated are discouraged. The Editorial Board of IRER is interested in expanding the frontiers of scholarly real estate research and is willing to work with any potential author who is developing new and exciting ideas.

Review and Publication Policies

The Editor reads each submitted manuscript to decide if the topic and content of the paper fit the objectives of IRER. Manuscripts that are appropriate are assigned anonymously by the Editor to one member of the Editorial Board and at least one other reviewer. The Editor makes an editorial decision upon receiving recommendations from the referees.

When a referee decides to reject a manuscript, the referee presents a critique to the Editor who then forwards it to the author. Each detailed critique includes a specific recommendation from the referee indicating whether or not the author should be encouraged to resubmit the manuscript for publication consideration. The Editor makes the final decision regarding re-submissions. Upon receiving a re-submission, the Editor determines whether or not the manuscript should re-enter the reviewing process, be accepted or simply be returned.

The Editor determines the publication dates for accepted manuscripts. As a general rule, the Editor attempts to “balance” the topics covered in any one issue. Consequently, in an effort to balance the coverage of topics, the Editor may choose the articles to be included in a given issue from among those already accepted for publication. This general rule will be set aside should the Board of Directors decide to do so, such as in the case of a special issue devoted to a single topic.
