Scope and policy

“Educação em Revista” is an open access electronic journal, with continuous publication, that aims to disseminate the unpublished and relevant scientific production developed in the area of ​​Education. The manuscripts can be presented in Portuguese, English and Spanish.

The magazine is organized in five sections:

  1. Articles: It brings together unpublished manuscripts that present results of empirical or theoretical research or systematic and integrative critical review of scientific and academic production in the area.
  2. Reviews: Gathers manuscripts that present critical reading of works relevant to the educational area that have been published in the last 2 years.
  3. Open Word: Gathers opinion articles on current topics of repercussion in the educational area.
  4. Interviews: It brings together unpublished interviews that present relevant contributions to the educational field.
  5. Dossier: Gathers a set of articles that deal with a specific theme, based on a proposal received from the academic community or by a call made by the editors.

“Educação em Revista” emphasizes the originality of the submitted manuscripts, their importance to the researchers in the area of ​​Education, the theoretical-methodological rigor, the quality and the relevance of the evidences that support the argument developed by the authors.

The manuscripts submitted in “Educação em Revista” are previously evaluated by the Editorial Board. Those who meet the editorial criteria are referred for double-blind peer review. The evaluators should have the title of doctor and belong to a national or international scientific institution. The names of the authors, the referees and the institutions to which they belong will remain confidential throughout the process. The magazine will annually publish the names of its body of ad hoc referees.

Manuscripts that are outside the publication’s editorial criteria are returned to the authors. In this group are texts that are not original; do not address a central problem of the educational area; are merely descriptive, without developing a theoretical and methodological analysis of the question addressed; are reports of experience; do not present relevant contributions to the analysis of the subject matter; do not have sufficiently developed empirical evidence or arguments to substantiate their analysis and conclusions.

The Editorial Board may publish an article produced by invitation, with the intention of contributing to some more pressing debate in the area. This article will only be evaluated by the Editorial Board.

Guidelines for Authors

All authors of the manuscript should be named and bound to the article exclusively in the field indicated in the submission system. This ensures that the article is related to the authors only through this system.

Papers published in conference proceedings may be accepted as long as the manuscript is modified to offer a significant proportion of unpublished elements that justify a new publication.
