Author Guidelines

1. Aims and scope

The articles should focus on subjects related to the impact of ICT on education and new emergent forms of teaching and learning in digital environments.

2. Manuscripts admitted

  • Peer Review Articles: articles that have passed the blind evaluation carried out by a group of experts
  • Reviews: short articles about books, software or websites and PhD
  • Guest and Invited articles: articles approved by the editorial board of the jounal

3. Manuscript submission

  • The papers, which must be unpublished, should be sent by this system.  If you are not registered, you must do so before submitting your articles to review, using the format that appears in section REGISTER.  Once registered, you must open a working session (enter the website using your user name and password) and begin the process of sending the document, which consists of 5 steps.
  • The papers must be original and they must not be published previously. If they do not fill those requirements completely, an explanatory text at the end of the article is needed in which its publication is justified.
  • The articles must be sent in Mocrosoft Word (or equivalent), and in English or Spanish. DER will not edit submitted manuscripts for style or language. Also, reviewers may advise non acceptance of a manuscript if there are an unacceptable number of grammatical errors.

4.  Format

On the first page must appear: the tile of the article (in English and optionally in Spanish); name, surnames and emails of the author or authors, followed by the name and address of the usual place of work.

At the beginning there must be an abstract (in English and optionally in Spanish), of a maximum of 200 words, including a maximmum of 5 keywords that identify the subject area of the paper.

The extension of the body of the text is free. It is recommended that it has introduction,  methodology, results and conclusions.

The works should be accompanied by a bibliography at the end of the article. All the references quoted in the text should appear in this list, and be put in alphabetic order, complying as closely as possible to the regulations of the American Psychological Association, 6th edition. To quote online texts you must also follow the APA regulation.
