The attached texts are shown as erased or coloured at the margins with different colours and with the cross lines. Preview editor can write in the brackets (3rd brackets) if they have any questions or comments to author or editor. The edited document from the preview editor will be uploaded in the system after forwarding it to the editor. The editor will check the text and send it to the author. The editor and author will approve the corrections if they agree with the changes, then they will arrange it, change it, or if necessary, they will do new change and add new comments in different colours. If there are any questions in the brackets (3rd brackets), the author and editor should answer these questions in their respective brackets. After the author and the editor review and confirm their necessary changes, the reviewed copy will be rechecked by the preview editor one more time and the text will be considered as ready for final editing and sorting.

2. Please follow the instructions below to do electronic editing on the drafted article with the Harvard Educational Review methodRespond to proposed changes -If you approve the proposed changes, change the text from bold to normal. If you do not approve the proposed changes, retype the original text and make them bold. Addition and deduction -Please make the newly added part with bold font. Please mark the text you want to delete as like as the following brackets: [text to be deleted] Please add a note to the field if you delete a sentence or more text. Example: [2 sentences have been deleted: the text that will be deleted] Commenting or answering the questions for the author Please do not change or delete the questions to the author. Leave the text in bold font. Add your comments as the answers from author [author's note:] at the end of the questions. Example: [Author’s note: The methodology discussion has been expanded as you suggested.] Making a comment Please use the Comment section to do changes on your article or reorganization as well as for major revisions.
