Author Guidelines

1. Writing Format

  • The length of each text is limited to 25,000 characters, including spaces, tables, images and references. The following information must be provided on the first page: article title, author's name, scientific degree, full institution address, e-mail address, and abstracts of about 250 words. Abstracts must precede the text and include a brief statement about the problem, research methods, data, and conclusions. In the case of a text commenting on an article previously published in a journal, the abstract must state the topic discussed and the central thesis. Keywords must be written under abstract.
  • If one of the findings reported in the text has been published elsewhere, or if there is a plan to use one or all of the findings in another manuscript to be published, the author must explain the intent and circumstances at the time of the first submission.
  • Loading numbers (graphs and graphs) can be submitted for review purposes, but numbers must be given in their original source files if the script is accepted for publication - we do not receive scanned numbers.
  • Explanatory notes should be avoided wherever possible and their content must be included in the text. Important notes must be identified by sequential superscripts and listed in the Notes section at the end of the text.

References written in languages other than English must be translated into English in parentheses. References must be placed at the end of the article in alphabetical order.
  • All texts are reviewed by a minimum of two independent reviewers, who pay attention to the following aspects of each text: presenting the most important results from empirical research (not all results), qualitative discussion of quantitative data, information about what's new in research presentations and contributions writers for educational sciences, especially Science Education (Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Mathematics). Received manuscripts are published within six months of receipt.
  • Due to the large number of manuscripts sent to editorial offices from all over the world, we only publish those who receive the most points in the form of reviews, placed on the website.
  • Together with the manuscript, each writer must send a declaration and copyright form, filled out and signed by all authors, which are placed on the journal's website. Only manuscripts that meet the formal and essential requirements of our journal refer to the editorial process.
