Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
- The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
- The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
- The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
- In the comments for the Editor, the author proposed two reviewers for the manuscript. The reviewers are international in scope and at least one of them is from an English language speaking country. Authors should not suggest reviewers from their own institution or reviewers where a conflict of interest may arise for the reviewer.
Articles should be between 5.000 and 7.000 words, excluding references. Authors that plan to submit articles longer than 7,000 words must contact the editorial board in advance.
Research notes should be between 2.000 and 4.000 words, excluding references.
EJIE is always interested in receiving proposals for Special Issues which align with the goals of the journal. We anticipate that these will contain between 4-8 articles. If you wish to have a larger special issue for a specific reason please contact the editors. We would also be interested in the option of special issues that remain open after their initial publication, accepting subsequent publications that add to the body of knowledge and provide updates to the topic area.
We encourage seminar organisers at the European Conference on Educational Research (ECER) and other conferences to use their events as a starting point for a special issue, inviting additional submissions to broaden the discussion.
When submitting a proposal to the editors we would ask for a brief outline of:
- scope, aims and relevance of the special issue
- names and contact details of the proposed editors
- expected number of articles (by invitation or by open call)
- submissions already agreed in principle (with abstracts if available)
We would also expect the editors to proactively seek relevant reviewers for the special issue.
