Cadernos de Pesquisa, is a quarterly scientific journal that publishes academic findings that are directly or indirectly related to education, including innovative work relating to research, essays and other types of texts. The journal broadly addresses the field of education, contributing to the subject of educational studies that involve matters related to gender issues, racial relations, childhood, youth, school, work, family, social policies in an interdisciplinary manner. The broad scope encompasses different areas within the field of the humanities, from various theoretical and methodological perspectives, allowing for the exchange of information and discussion on the main issues in these fields.
The journal's priority is the publication of empirical historical and/or documentary research, in particular that which is conducted in Brazil, although there is space for texts from abroad. It also welcomes essays concerning theoretical and methodological contributions, and makes texts written by recognized international authors available to the Brazilian reader, who may cite studies in the field, translated into Portuguese or Spanish.
The journal publishes texts in Portuguese and Spanish, and makes English versions available, or, in the case of a translation, in the original language of the article on the SEER/ojs platform, on the SciELO and Educ@ site, containing articles selected by the Editorial Board for each issue.
The material must be original and with exclusive submission to Cadernos de Pesquisa. Accepted papers must not be published elsewhere for six months after its publication in the journal. For permission to reproduce the text into another outlet, consult firstname.lastname@example.org.
