Evaluation Process

The evaluation process of articles sent to Education follows the following flow:

  • a) Analysis of the form: at this stage, the articles are read by the editorial team and evaluated for their suitability to the journal's general criteria. The articles that are rejected are: 1) configured as a bibliographic review only or presented as a simple clipping of a dissertation or thesis, without proper adaptation; 2) correspond to the form of project or research report; 3) do not present theoretical or methodological consistency in the research described; 4) they are merely descriptive and do not present an analysis of the problem addressed; 5) do not have the area of Education as the central axis of the discussion; 6) do not comply with the rules of Revista Educação for the submission of articles (metadata, formatting, citations, references ...); 7) do not present results, formulations or conclusions that point to advances for the proposed theme; 8) do not present empirical elements or sufficiently developed arguments to support the conclusions. Such works will be returned to the authors. Papers with any of the characteristics mentioned above will not be considered fit for the next phase.
  • b) Peer review of merit: In this second phase, the Education Journal editorials forward the article without the author's identification to at least two referees from the specific thematic area of the work (members of the editorial board or ad hoc guests). For the selection of the referees and thematic areas, the CNPq area table classifications and the information available in the Lattes Platform are considered. The referees can fully accept the article, accept it by requesting reformulations or reject it. Either hypothesis is justified by a descriptive opinion. When the two referees refuse the work, the article is returned to the author. When both reviewers accept the work, it goes to the next phase. Finally, when one or both referees request reformulations, the work is returned to the author, who should consider the opinions and reformulate the article within 30 days. When the author resubmits the reformulated text according to the reviewers' suggestions, it is reevaluated and goes to the final phase.
  • c) Review and adaptation of the work to the rules of Revista Educação: once accepted for publication, the work is submitted to a language revision and a standardization. The paper is sent to the author with suggestions of corrections and adjustments so that, finally, the editorial team can forward it for publication.

The magazine adopts the Turnitin system for plagiarism identification.
