Conference proceedings  

Call for papers

Deadline for submitting the papers is 31st August 2018

The conference welcomes presentations from the broad field of educational research. However, note that all papers will go through a peer-review process, which will evaluate the paper's suitability to be published. The collection of papers will apply to be listed on Web of Science. Therefore, it is necessary for authors to follow the specific rules of writing and formatting the paper. These rules can be found here. In addition, we made a sample paper document for authors to edit in order to make the writing process a bit easier. You can download the sample paper here.

Peer review process: In September, the submitted papers will go through a two-round review process, which is double-blind. The editorial board reserves the right to decline a paper. The editors make sure that none of the reviewers is a worker of the same workplace as the author and co-authors. Reviewers will not be in any conflict of interest about the reviewed article.

How to submit the paper: Please, send 1) your paper and 2) filled in informed consent (download here) to konference.mladezahodnoty@gmail.com
