Journal Objectives

The Journal of Real Estate Practice and Education is an official publication of the American Real Estate Society (ARES). The Journal's purpose is to stimulate research in real estate practice and education and to encourage excellence in training and teaching. An ARES goal is to be an essential source of information and ideas regarding the practice and teaching of real estate in areas such as development, finance, management, market analysis, marketing, and valuation. The Editorial Board of JREPE is interested in expanding the frontiers of scholarly research in real estate practice and education and is willing to work with any potential author who is developing new and exciting ideas appropriate for publication in the Journal.

Review and Publication Policies

The Managing Editor and/or Editor read each submitted manuscript to decide if the topic and content of the paper fit the objectives of JREPE. Manuscripts that are appropriate for the Journal are assigned anonymously by the Managing 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.

If 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 the disposition of re-submissions. Upon receiving a re-submission, the Editor determines whether or not the manuscript should re-enter the review process, be accepted or simply be returned unaccepted.

The Editor determines the publication dates for accepted manuscripts.

Submission Guidelines

Authors should submit a manuscript that is double-spaced and paginated. The cover page, which will be removed before the manuscript is sent to a referee, should contain: the title, all authors and their affiliations (mailing addresses), phone and fax numbers, and email addresses. Except for the cover page, all pages should be numbered consecutively. Submitted manuscripts should be original research, and the names appearing on the article should be that of the individuals who conducted the research. The article should not be under review simultaneously at another journal nor substantially resemble articles that are under review at another journal. Upon acceptance, ARES automatically owns the copyright of the article. The transfer of copyright will ensure the widest possible dissemination of information.

Authors are strongly advised to review a recent issue of the Journal to confirm that their manuscript is in the style the Journal requires. For nonmembers, a submission fee in the amount of one year’s academic membership dues is required and should be made payable to ARES.  An annual membership is included in this fee.
