Author Guidelines

Author Guidelines

Education as Change invites articles that address its aims and scope.

Articles and other material submitted should be original contributions and should not be under consideration for any other publication at the time of submission to Education As Change.


Articles should be between 6000 and 9000 words, including references.

Abstract, keywords

Submitted articles should contain an abstract of between 150-200 words and should be accompanied by a minimum of 3-10 key words. As the abstracts and keywords are taken up in international abstracting indexes, and facilitate the citation of articles and the research of other scholars, it is important that these accurately reflect the article's substance, main arguments and findings.
