Please click the links below for corresponding manuscript preparation guidelines:

Please make sure that you use the ET&S template along with the add-ins tool for preparing your manuscripts: here.

Please make sure that your article is within 7000 words (including everything - title, author names, affiliations, abstract, keywords, main body, references, appendices - everything). Papers that are longer than the maximum limit may experience significant delays in review process, as they will be sent back to authors at whatever stage we notice this problem.

The articles should be original, unpublished, and not in consideration for publication elsewhere at the time of submission to Educational Technology & Society and during the review process.

Authors are also responsible for making sure that the manuscript does not have any language related problems. For non-native English authors, who do not have good command on English language, it is strongly recommended to take help from a native English speaker (or to use professional editing services). Journal does not provide such service, and manuscripts with poor English will be returned to the authors without completing the review process.

All peer review publications will be refereed in double-blind review process by at least two international reviewers with expertise in the relevant subject area.

Submission procedure

Authors, submitting articles for a particular special issue, should send their submissions directly to the appropriate Guest Editor. Guest Editors will advise the authors regarding submission procedure for the final version.

All submissions should be in electronic form. The editors will acknowledge the receipt of submission as soon as possible.

Submission must be in editable format. Preferred formats are Word document and RTF, but editors will try their best for other formats too. Submissions in PDF and other non-editable formats are not acceptable.

For figures, BMP, GIF and JPEG (JPG) are the preferred formats. Authors must supply separate figures in one of these formats besides embedding them in text at appropriate places (not at the end of the manuscript). In case the file(s) can't be opened, editors will contact the corresponding author by email.

Please provide following details with each submission:

The submissions should be uploaded at http://www.ifets.info/ets_journal/upload.php. In case of difficulties, please contact ets-editors@ifets.info (Subject: Submission for Educational Technology & Society journal).
