today my paper get rejected due to this reason when I used the Difference-in-Difference as my methodology

In addition, it would need to address concerns about causal estimates as there are a number of assumptions which are unaddressed. These include, inter alia, anticipation effects and omitted confounders.

I am wondering what does "inter alia" mean here, or it just mean that I need to address "anticipation effects" and "omitted cofounders" problem in my research?

It means "among other things". Its not an economics term, its standard English. It is somewhat pretentious, having been borrowed from Latin.

Can I suggest that next time you don't understand a word or phrase you try Google first?
