Vol. 1 No. 1 (2018): Pakistan Journal of Educational Research


It is a great achievement by the blessing of Allah that the first volume of ‘Pakistan Journal of Educational Research – PJER’ has been published. In fact, it was not possible to achieve this challenge without the sincere efforts of my team. However, the biggest challenge for the journal is to maintain HEC criteria and quality in its initial years of publishing. I know this is just the beginning of great journey and we have crossed only the first step. InshaAllah, we will soon achieve the milestones we have set. After passing from these strenuous steps, the journal is finally in your hands.

Today, research is considered not only a source of knowledge but also the form of art. In this regard, the research journals are spreading this art and Pakistan Journal of Educational Research’ is one of them. Pakistan, is gradually refining in the field of research and other related areas. However, we are unable to create such environment which is in developed countries. It is our desire that Pakistan Journal of Educational Research’ plays its active role in our country’s research environment.

Our next target is to get the journal recognized from the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan. Hopefully we will soon achieve this target too. For this reason, our website (www.pjer.org) is already based on OJS. We welcome your comments and suggestions, because we believe on the continuous development in education and research for the betterment of our beloved country Pakistan.

I would like to show my deepest gratitude to my editorial & advisory board members, peer reviewers, authors and all PJER team. This task was not possible until the entire team performed their task with great passion and hard work.
