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.
The contributors are requested to consider the following points when writing their articles:
- The submitted articles should be clear, consistent and accessible to the journal’s readership.
- The submitted articles should tackle both teaching practices and research. The theoretical concepts should be clarified in relation to their practical applications; the description of practices should be clearly linked to the underlying theoretical principles; the research methodology should be explicitly described.
- The submitted articles that focus on a particular teaching or learning context should aim to include/discuss the implications for other contexts.
- The submitted articles should refer to recent research work carried out into the reported field.
- The presentation and discussion of the results should not assume more than a basic knowledge of statistics to allow for an easy understanding of the results (even though the analysis calls upon sophisticated techniques).
The submitted articles should be framed in the local teaching context (study/school programs), also refer to educational frameworks, methods, and cannot be limited to lesson plans.
The submitted articles should mention the limitations of the practices and actions and include a critical reflection on the suggested practices.
