Benin Journal of Educational Studies is an official journal of Institute of Education, University of Benin, Benin City, Nigeria.

Reference in the body of the text should be made by citing the author’s surname, publication year and page (e.g., Adeyanju, 2019:25). The full citation should then be listed under References which should be arranged in alphabetical order according to the names of the authors, and the current APA format should be adopted for the article.
