The Journal accepts for publication texts in English, on topics in the field of digital pedagogy. Draft proposals in French, Italian or Romanian can be submitted in advance, for an opinion regarding the possibility of publication.
The review process and the publication of papers are free of charge.
Articles can be submitted at any time throughout the year. The date of publication coincides with the date of acceptance of the final text, and this determines the journal number in which the article is included.
Authors retain the copyright of their papers.
All published papers are in open access and distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution Licence CC BY, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original author and source are credited.
Each article is preliminarily assessed by members of the editorial team. A plagiarism check is performed before any content analysis. The journal has a zero-tolerance plagiarism policy (including self-plagiarism).
Then the text is sent to two independent scholars for anonymously (”blind”) peer reviewing.

Article proposals receive a response in maximum two weeks. Sometimes, the review team requests parts of the article to be redone, images to be resubmitted in better quality formats, the bibliography to be completed, or the abstract to be redone/ translated, before publishing or non-acceptance decision is made.
The decision about a manuscript is based only on its added value to the field of digital pedagogy, originality, clarity, and relevance to the journal’s scope and content.
