Educação & Sociedadepublishes texts considering the originality of the theme, density and conceptual rigor in approaching the issue, and the syntactic quality of the text resulting from research (which should specify the research information and funding agency, if applicable) and essays which compose the different sections of the journal. According to the theme, the articles are published in the following sections: Articles, Review & Summary, Analysis of Teaching Practices, Development of the Education Professionals, Debates & Controversies, Images & Words (section that publishes papers on media and education issues, as well as essays, comments and book reviews, interviews, films, and other cultural productions of interest to the educational field).
Journal’s editorial policy sets the following categories for evaluation of the articles: content, method, originality, relevance, theoretical consistency and analytical rigor, timeliness, quality, and alignment of the text to the editorial scope.
There are three phases for evaluating the submitted articles. The first is the screening held by the Coordinator and Assistant Editor, examining the adequacy of the article to the editorial line of the journal and its potential for publication; the second phase is a preliminary evaluation by the EC which aims at identifying the contribution and the quality of the article for the journal; and the third phase is a double-blind peer review. The final decision returns to the EC.
Articles considered within the scope and appropriate to the editorial criteria of the journal are submitted by the EC to the reviewers (at least two). Reviewers recommend acceptance, rejection, or reformulation of the work. In the case of a reformulation, articles should return to the reviewers for final evaluation. The result of the evaluation will be forwarded to the author.
In the double-blind review,names of the reviewers are kept confidential, as well as names of the authors are omitted to the reviewers. Therefore, when submitting the article through the system, the anonymity of authorship is required.Under no circumstances, author(s) should be identified in the text. Any explicit reference of the authorship — citation of author(s) name(s), reference to articles authored or co-authored in previous works — are considered a break in anonymity.
Final acceptance of articles depends on the following criteria:
