Scope and policy

“Educação em Revista” is an open-access electronic journal. It aims to publicize unpublished, original and relevant scientific production developed in the field of ​​Education. The manuscripts can be presented in Portuguese, English and Spanish.

The journal is organized in five sections:

  • Articles: manuscripts that present results of empirical or theoretical research, or a systematic and integrative critical review of the academic production in the field of Education.
  • Reviews: critical review of books in the field of Education that have been published in the last 2 years.
  • Open Word: opinion articles on current topics in the field of Education.
  • Interviews: unpublished interviews that present relevant contributions to the field of Education.
  • Dossier: set of articles that deal with a specific theme, based on a proposal received from the academic community or by a call from the Editorial Board.

“Educação em Revista” emphasizes the originality of the submitted manuscripts, their importance to the researchers in the field 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 fit within the journal scope are checked by an anti-plagiarism system before being sent to double-blind peer review. All referees have a PhD degree and belong to a national or international scientific institution. The identification of the authors and the referees will remain confidential throughout the process. The journal publishes annually the names of ad hoc referees.

The main reasons for rejection of manuscripts are: they are not original; do not address a central problem in the educational area; they are merely descriptive, without developing a rigorous theoretical and methodological analysis of the question addressed; reports of experience; do not present relevant contributions to the analysis of the subject matter; do not have empirical evidence or enough arguments to substantiate their analysis and conclusions.

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