INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS
Scope and policy
ESTUDIOS PEDAGOGICOS only receives original, unpublished papers that have not been sent simultaneously to other journals for its publication. The authors are the only responsible ones to comply with this norm. ESTUDIOS PEDAGÓGICOS’s Executive Committee only evaluates the intrinsic quality of the received papers by the assessment systems created for this purpose.
All jobs received by ESTUDIOS PEDAGOGICOS for its publication will be sent to two judges using the double blind method. The judges will receive the jobs (with no reference to the authors and no reference to any previous projects), and a copy of the judgment policy. In case of significant differences in the reports, the job will be sent to a third judge. Based on the three reports, the main editor will consult the associated editors and they will determine whether the job will be published or rejected. In all cases, the author(s) will be informed about the decision.
Form and preparation of manuscripts
Instructions for author(s)
ESTUDIOS PEDAGOGICOS will only receive papers sent via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
a) Developed in Word Office 97-2003 (.doc), letter size page and Windows OS.
Considerations about the text
a) In case the article is divided into sections, titles must be written in capital letter beginning with number 1 and followed by 1.1. or 2, as needed.
Consideration about quotes
a) For non-literal or general quotes, the last name and the year will be shown between brackets, as in: (Morin, 2006). If the source has two authors, the following criteria shall be used: (Maturana y Varela, 1984). In case of a source with three or more authors, the criteria will be: (Marchesi et al. 2001). If the quote comes from an indirect source, see the next example for criteria to follow: (Cit. en Touraine, 2006: 47).
A list of quoted references will be included at the end of the article. The references will be sorted alphabetically, based on the last name of the main author. If two or more sources from the same author were quoted, these will be sorted chronologically, showing firstly the most recent one and including the last name of the author in it. The following jobs of the same author will begin with a hyphen and will not include the last name. If the edition year is the same, a letter will be inserted after the year in order to differentiate them (a, b, c).
BIBLIOGRAPHIC REFERENCES will be written using the following criteria: Complete book from only one author
Last name in lower case letters, comma, initial from the first name, stop, year of edition between brackets, stop, title of the book in italics, stop, city where it was published, colon, publishing house, stop.
Complete book from several authors
Following the above mentioned order, all authors will be mentioned. Between the penultimate and the last author (or between the first and the second one, if there are only two) “&” will be written.
Chapter in a book
The name of the author will be shown (following the above mentioned order). Afterwards, the year must be included and then the name of the chapter (no inverted commas and no italics). After the name of the chapter and following a stop, “In” will be written, including the initial of the first name and then the last name (in lower case letter) of the editor or compiler. After a comma, the title of the book will be written in italics, and the starting and ending page numbers for the chapter will be written between brackets (with a hyphen between the numbers).
Article in a journal
The name of the article will be written (no inverted commas and no italics) after the year it was published in. Following a stop, the name of the journal will be written in italics. The volume of the journal will be shown between commas, then the number of the journal and after another comma, the first and last page of the article (separated by a hyphen).
In general, they follow the much the same guidelines already mentioned, including at the end the date they were consulted on and the electronic address.
