The European Journal of Educational Technology (EJETECH) is an international, multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed online journal (ISSN: 2148-2977). EJETECH publishes two issues per year. The journal welcomes research papers, original theoretical works, literature reviews and book reviews in all areas of educational technology.

All manuscripts submitted to EJETECH are rigorously evaluated via a double-blind peer review process. The manuscripts should be original, unpublished, and not in consideration for publication elsewhere at the time of submission.

Please pay special attention to the subject matter of your manuscript to be within the scope of the Journal.  Manuscripts that are not suitable for the scope of the journal are rejected even if they have high scientific quality. For detailed information on aims and scope of EJETECH, please refer to Aims & Scope.


Authors are requested to submit their manuscript by using the Journal’s online submission system. They need to register with the journal prior to submission. The online submission system will guide authors stepwise through the submission process. Submission by email is not accepted.  


Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Significant contributions mean;

– significant contributions to the conception, design, execution, data acquisition, or interpretation of the reported study,

The corresponding author should verify that all co-authors have approved the final version of the manuscript and agreed to its submission for publication. Those who contributed to the work but do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in the “Acknowledgements” section.


There is no submission fee or Article Processing Cost (APC) for this journal. EJETECH is free for both readers and authors.

The papers published by EJETECH are selected via a rigorous and double-blind peer-review process. Submitted manuscripts are first reviewed by the editorial staff, who may decide to reject or send it to two external peer reviewers. The process is double-blind. Based on the reviewers’ decision and remarks, The Editor-in-Chief or the Guest Editor of a Special Issue make the final decision.

If the revisions are required, authors will be asked to resubmit the revised manuscript within a certain period of time. In major revisions, the revised version of the manuscript will be returned to the reviewers and it will be re-evaluated.

After acceptance for publication, proofs of the paper will be prepared and sent to the corresponding author via Journal’s online system. The corresponding author must revise the proofs and returned the corrected proofs to the Editor within a week.

Plagiarism is one of the most important threats to scholarly publication quality and academic integrity, and is not acceptable in any way in EJETECH. Plagiarism may take different forms, from showing someone else’s work as their own, to copying or paraphrasing parts of other studies without proper attribution, or to use research data collected or produced by others without permission and proper attribution.

All manuscripts submitted to EJETECH are routinely screened for plagiarism. EJETECH's editors use Turnitin to check the manuscripts for plagiarism and text duplication. When editors suspect a plagiarism case during the peer review process, they follow the paths set in the COPE’s guidelines. If the plagiarism is confirmed, the manuscript will be rejected. 

Practices such as fabricating or manipulating data, manipulating images and other visual objects, deliberately selecting analysis tools or methods to support a particular conclusion constitute unethical behavior and are strictly forbidden in EJETECH. Authors should present an accurate account of the work performed, especially regarding data collection and their analysis and interpretation. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the manuscript. The study should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable.


We encourage authors to make the research data on which their paper is based available either by depositing into a public repository or by uploading the data and files as supplementary materials with the submission. You can find a research data repository to deposit your data at If you have deposited your datasets into a public repository, please state it in the Cover Letter. As a data availability statement could reveal your identity, we recommend that you remove this from the anonymized version of the manuscript.


Published articles in EJETECH should remain extant and intact. However, under exceptional circumstances involving plagiarism, data fabrication and redundant publication or involuntary data errors, articles may need to be retracted, removed or replaced in order to protect the integrity of the literature. The need for a retraction will be determined by the Editor-in-Chief, but may be initiated, in cases of flawed data or conclusions, at the request of the author(s).

To retract an article, a notice of retraction will be published. This notice of retraction will:
-    include the title and authors of the article, the reason for the retraction and who is retracting the article;
-    be published online and be linked to the online version of the article.



Authors have the right to appeal a decision on their submissions to the journals published by EJETECH if they believe the decision was unfair. To appeal a decision, please submit a letter detailing the nature of the appeal and indicating why the decision is viewed as unfair.

The Editor-in-Chief will review all relevant documentation relating to the submission, may consult the relevant Associate Editor or Reviewers and may appoint a new Reviewer to evaluate the submission before making a decision. The decision of the Editor-in-Chief will be final.


For complaints relating to the policies and procedures of EJETECH or the conduct of editorial staff, please email the details of the complaint to the Editor-in-Chief. All complaints directed through the correct channels will be acknowledged and the resolution will be conveyed to the complainant.
