The journal Revista e-Curriculum, a quarterly publication (March, June, September and December) with an A2-Qualis Classification, from the Brazilian Coordinating Body for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES), maintains a constant flow of submitted articles.


Focus and scope

The aim of the journal is to encourage publications, disseminate research studies and raise the standard of scientific output in both the national and international spheres of education. This is undertaken by adopting a critical and emancipatory approach and being committed to overcoming every kind of inequality and cultural oppression, while showing a particular interest in the subarea of the Curriculum.

The journal is the outcome of the dedication shown by researchers in providing space for the publication of original work which has resulted from scientific research into matters that concern current educational questions and can lead to reflection, discussion and further investigation into the subareas of the Curriculum. Moreover, the journal regards curricular matters as essential for planning and creating a school curriculum, as well as other educative spaces in the globalized world. This makes it a key factor in educational policymaking which is  aimed at speeding up the process of making scientific knowledge widespread in the area. It is thus concerned with disseminating academic/scientific research in Education with a particular emphasis on the Curriculum, while being aware that this is of paramount importance for educational and social development.

3. Referral to ad hoc academic assessors(two for each submission), appointed by the Editorial Board of the Revista e-Curriculum, on the basis of of their proven knowledge in the field of research being evaluated. The manuscript are examined through the blind peer review system to ensure their anonymity

4. Analysis and comparison of the reviews.
4.1. The manuscripts that are accepted are forwarded to the authors with the favourable opinion of the reviewers/referees. The Editorial Board can request adjustments to the text on the basis of the comments and possible recommendations made by the reviewers and the Board itself.
4.2. When there is a divergence of view betweeen the rewiers, the manuscripts are sent to a third reviewer to make a final decision as a tie-breaker.
