Notes for Contributors

keyboard The MJES publishes original contributions in the field of education that focus on Mediterranean countries and the diaspora of Mediterranean people worldwide. All issues are special thematic volumes focusing on a specific topic that has special significance for the region.

Refereeing: To ensure the highest standards all submitted articles are scrutinised by at least two independent referees before being accepted for publication. We are presently only publishing special thematic issues and not accepting unsolicited submissions. Prospective authors are advised to check the Call for Papers for planned special issues here. Published papers become the copyright of the journal.
Language: The MJES features articles in English. Authors who are not fully proficient in English should have their manuscripts checked by a language specialist. The Editorial Board is also willing to promote English versions of high quality articles that have already been published in any of the Mediterranean languages that do not have wide regional or international currency. In such cases, however, responsibility for copyright clearance rests with the author/s, who carry all responsibilities for any infringement.

Readership: All contributors should be aware they are addressing an international audience. They should also use non-sexist, non-racist language, and a guide sheet is available in this regard.

Manuscripts: articles should be between 6,000 and 8,000 words in length, should be sent to the Editor MJES, accompanied by an abstract of between 100-150 words. Currently all issues are special thematic volumes, with a call for abstracts being made first, and papers solicited from the authors of selected abstracts. No unsolicited papers should be sent to the editor.

E-mail submission: Authors are to follow the instructions that the special issue editor/s announce. Manuscripts are usually submitted as an email attachment to the guest editor/s.

Figures and tables should have their positions clearly marked and be provided on separate sheets that can be detached from the main text.

References should follow the latest version of the APA style.

Particular care in the presentation of references ensures quicker processing of submissions. 

The Editorial Board welcomes suggestions for special issues of the MJES dedicated to a special theme. Instructions for guest editors can be found here.
