General guidelines

The Education and Culture Contemporary Journal (REEDUC) publishes studies and research results that contribute to the development of the area, broadening the debate on the challenges posed to education by the changes that characterize contemporary culture.

The Journal divulges original papers about the theme that defines it. In particular, of theoretical and/or empirical research findings; critical reviews of educational research literature (thematic and methodological); essays; book reviews; interviews with education professionals or of related areas. Periodically, when the Editorial Committee deems it timely and convenient, an edition will be released focusing on a specific theme referring to issues relevant to contemporary education. This decision will be divulged six months before at the News page of the website.

REEDUC does not accept texts that have been submitted, simultaneously, for publication in other journals and/or books in Brazil or other countries. The texts express the opinion of their authors, not the position of the Education and Culture Contemporary Journal or of the Graduate Program in Education of Estácio de Sá University. The submission of works means the acceptation of the Creative Commons CC BY License.

The manuscripts, without identification, will be submitted to two Editorial Committee members or to a Consulting Council member and peer reviewer. In the event of a discrepancy in the evaluation, a review by a third reviewer will be requested. The name of the reviewer will not be divulged, but copies of the evaluations will be sent to authors. The publication of the papers will be conditioned to the authors' acceptance of any alterations made.

Ethical questions

The author is the individual who effectively participated in the conception, development and writing of the submitted paper. After the submission, authors may not be included or excluded. The identity of authors must be included in the metadata only. The manuscript should not contain any indications that allow the evaluator to recognize, directly or indirectly, the authorship of the text.

REEDUC condemns plagiarism in its various forms and, in order to prevent it, requests that the authors guarantee the originality of the work, make proper use of citations, and avoid excessive self-citing. The Journal considers “original” submissions those that have not been published in Portuguese on the Web.

In their texts, the authors should be responsible for revealing any conflicts of interest of a personal, political, academic, commercial, and financial or any other nature.
