Instructions to authors



Scope and policy


Educação em Revista is an open-access electronic journal. It aims to publicize unpublished, original and relevant scientific production developed in the field of ​​Education.

The manuscripts can be presented in Portuguese, English and Spanish. It is recommended that the approved articles be translated into English as part of the journal's     internationalization process.

The journal is organized in five sections:

Articles: manuscripts that present results of empirical or theoretical research, or a systematic and integrative critical review of the academic production in the field of Education.

Reviews: critical review of books in the field of Education that have been published in the last 2 years.

Open Word: opinion articles on current topics in the field of Education.

Interviews: unpublished interviews that present relevant contributions to the field of Education.

Dossier: set of articles that deal with a specific theme, based on a proposal received from the academic community or by a call from the Editorial Board.

“Educação em Revista” emphasizes the originality of the submitted manuscripts, their importance to the researchers in the field of ​​Education, the theoretical-methodological rigor, the quality and the relevance of the evidences that support the argument developed by the authors.

As a practice of open science valorization, the journal will adopt, from January 15, 2021, the submission of manuscripts that are previously deposited in the preprint server of Scielo, available at https://preprints.scielo.org/.

The manuscripts submitted in “Educação em Revista” and that are previously deposited in the SciELO Preprints server, will be evaluated by the Editorial Board, which verifies their relevance to the scope of the journal and its proposed section, and submits them to a program of verification of plagiarism and autoplagiarism.

Scientific publication ethics policy

“Educação em Revista” is committed to the observance of good ethical practices in manuscript management, which involves editors, reviewers and authors. The authors must adopt as a reference in their manuscripts the “Scielo Guidelines on Best Practices for Strengthening Ethics in Scientific Publication” and the “Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing” recommended by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), the Directory of Open Access Journals, the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association and the World Association of Medical Editors

Regarding the verification of plagiarism and self-plagiarism by software, all articles that exceed 25% of plagiarism, including self-quote, will be analyzed by the editorial team, which will request positioning of the authors, if necessary, and will present final positioning.

The manuscript that brings results of research involving human beings and conducted in Brazil must be supported by the approval of Research Ethics Committee (Coep, in the Portuguese language), according to Resolution CSN Nº 466, of December 12, 2012 (Ethics in Research with Human Beings); and the Resolution CSN Nº 510, of April 7, 2016 (Ethics in Human and Social Research). Manuscripts of foreign authors must follow the ethical norms of their country of origin. This information should be mentioned in the manuscript text.

The results falsification or fabrication will be considered a severe misconduct. In case of doubt about the research results presented in the manuscript, data may be requested to prove the research methodology. 

Educação em Revista receives the communication about suspect misconduct in published manuscript by the institutional email: revista@fae.ufmg.br. For the analysis of misconduct follow the COPE flow diagrams. 

If the retraction is necessary, “Educação em Revista” uses the Scielo Guide of Retraction. The manuscript stays in the data base with the condition of retracted.

According to the new practices of open science, the Form on compliance with Open Science should be submitted, attached to the manuscript, which will be consulted at all stages of validation and evaluation of the submission. In this form, the authors are requested to inform: (a) if the manuscript is a preprint and, if so, its location; (b) if data, program codes and other materials underlying the text of the manuscript are properly cited and referenced; and, (c) if opening options are accepted in the peer review process.

Manuscripts with more than one author must present the specific contribution of each one in the writing process. The journal acts in accordance with CRedit (Contributor Roles Taxonomy) which is maintained by the Consortia for Advancing Standards in Research Administration Information (CASRAI). CRediT considers 14 different roles of authorship or contribution: Project Administration, Formal Analysis, Concept, Data Curatorship, Writing - First Writing, Writing - Review and Editing, Research, Methodology, Funding, Resources, Software, Supervision, Validation and Visualization. Each author(s) must present, in the specific form, their contribution(s) in the writing of the manuscript.

Authors will not be accepted for later inclusion after submission of the manuscript.

Manuscript process review

Those manuscripts that meet the editorial criteria will be forwarded for peer review. The evaluators must have a doctoral degree and are linked to a national or international scientific institution. The names of the evaluators will remain confidential throughout the evaluation process. The journal will publish annually the names of its ad hoc referees.

In case of controversies regarding the evaluation, the editors will submit the manuscript to other evaluators in order to obtain the majority of a final decision. The authors are informed about the whole evaluation process.

Manuscripts that are outside the editorial criteria of the Journal are returned to the authors. This group includes texts that do not address a central issue in the educational area; they do not present relevant contributions to the analysis of the topic addressed. In the case of articles, manuscripts that: are merely descriptive, without developing a theoretical and methodological analysis of the issue addressed; are reports of experience; do not present empirical elements or arguments sufficiently developed to support their analysis and conclusions will also be rejected.

The Editorial Board may publish articles produced by invitation, with the intention of contributing to some more pressing debate in the area. Such articles will only be evaluated by the Editorial Board.
