The Revista Práxis Educacional is a quarterly journal of the Postgraduate Program in Education (PPGEd), of the State University of Southwest Bahia (Uesb). It publishes unpublished articles resulting from scientific research, as well as book reviews. Its main objective is to disseminate research and studies related to the field of education, developed by researchers from different educational contexts in Brazil and abroad.


 1.1 Unpublished works will be published, resulting from scientific research, related to the area of education, presented according to the norms of the Brazilian Association of Technical Norms (ABNT) in force: NBR 6022 – Artigo em publicação periódica impressa; NBR 6023 – Referências; NBR 6028 – Informação e documentação - Resumo - Apresentação; NBR 10520 – Citações em documentos (if published in Brazilian Portuguese; APA, MLA, Vancouver formats will be valid for submissions in other languages).

The models are following the path: About >About the Journal > Authorization for publication of works. ATTENTION: for the insertion of all files (both manuscripts, declaration and authorization) it is necessary to note that in the last step of the action Send Submission File(s) (3.

It is necessary to activate this command so that the other files are inserted and only complete the process after the mandatory insertions. If you click on the Finish option before the other entries, the system will not allow further inclusions in this step.

1.4 Each work submitted (scientific article manuscript, thematic dossier, interview and review) will be evaluated in two stages, with the first preliminary stage (desk review), carried out by the Editorial Team (as described in About > About the Journal > Process Evaluation) and the second stage, by the Scientific Committee (double-blind evaluation, double blind review), which will decide on the approval or not of the work.

1.5 The authors will be informed, via e-mail, registered on the portal, of the acceptance or not of the work for publication.

1.6 Manuscripts must be submitted directly to the journal's portal ( in a file compatible with the .doc standard. The file must be formatted in the journal template available on the portal. Two files must be submitted, in the appropriate template, one file without authorship (for blind evaluation by reviewers) and the other file with authorship, for verification of the metadata.

1.7 Only manuscripts that were duly submitted in the Journal's template will be accepted.

1.8 The tables, charts and graphs, listed sequentially, must be done in black and white, using text editor resources, in accordance with the rules in force.

1.9 Regarding the extension and size of the files of the submitted works, it is necessary to meet the following requirements:

 a) scientific articles, minimum 15 (except for pages related to abstracts, which must have between 100 words, not exceeding 250 words, as well as pages related to references) and maximum 25 pages in total (containing all pages, including abstracts and references);

b) reviews, from 3 to 5 pages;

c) each of the files with a maximum of 2mb.

1.10 The anonymity of authors and reviewers will be guaranteed in the process of analyzing the submitted works.

1.11 All manuscripts, thematic dossiers and reviews sent to the Revista Práxis Educacional will be submitted to the Editorial Team, which analyzes their adequacy to the Rules and Editorial Policy of the Journal and decides to send them to reviewers or to refuse them in advance (desk review).

1.12 It is up to the Editorial Board of the Journal to decide on the opportunity and publication of the works approved by the Scientific Committee.

1.13 Texts must undergo a careful language review (in their respective languages) before being sent to the journal, and the authors are responsible for all orthographic and grammatical issues contained in the text.

1.14  Only papers that meet the formatting standards and the Brazilian Association of Technical Standards (ABNT) will only be sent to the Scientific Committee, in the case of those manuscripts published in PT-BR, for other languages, they must be presented in an international format (APA, MLA etc.). Work that is out of the norm will be rejected.

1.15  Revista Práxis Educacional reserves the right not to publish articles and reviews by the same author (or co-authorship) in intervals of less than one year.

1.16 The Práxis Educacional Magazine retains the copyright for all articles published in it.

1.17 The journal's publication ethics policy: i) complies with Resolution No. 196/1996, of the National Health Council, which establishes the regulatory standards for research involving human beings; ii) sends the final opinion on the manuscript to the author(s).

1.18 The review of the manuscript by the reviewers rests on the consistency of the abstract (necessarily presenting objective, theoretical framework and/or methodological procedure and results); internal consistency of the work (in relation to the objective, theoretical framework and/or methodological procedure and results); title consistency (in relation to the knowledge produced); quality of educational knowledge produced (in relation to analytical density, evidence or evidence of the statements presented and conclusive ideas); scientific relevance (with respect to the standards of a scientific research); originality of the work (in relation to advances in the area of ​​Education) and adequacy of writing to the language's cultured norm.

1.19 When examined in the first stage (desk review) of evaluation, the Editorial Team may return the manuscript to the authors so that they can make the necessary adjustments to meet the editorial requirements of the journal.

1.20 Each manuscript can preferably have a maximum of 3 (three) authors, all belonging to research groups. One of the authors must have a PhD degree, all other authors must be Masters/Masters or Doctors/Doctoral students.

According to Crusoé (2009, p. 99), “[...] in the representation of teachers, the idea of relationship is not restricted only to content, but also to the relationship between actors in social practice.”
