Peer review policy: Each manuscript is reviewed by two referees, and an editorial decision is made at the beginning of December 2013.

Submission of an article is taken to imply that it has not previously been published. Authors of articles published in this printed and online journal give copyrights of the article to Department of Teacher Education, Helsinki University.

Manuscript preparation


Articles should be not more than 5000 words long. The author’s name and contact information should be given on a separate sheet to facilitate the anonymous refereeing process.

Abstract and Keywords

An abstract max. 150 words summarising the content of the article, and three to five keywords, should be given immediately below the abstract and before the main text.


Articles must be written in English, using British conventions of spelling and punctuation when these differ from American usage. Contributors whose native language is not English are strongly urged to have their articles reviewed by a native speaker prior to submission. It is the Author’s responsibility to comply with this request.


When an article has been accepted for publication, authors must send a word file (.doc); line spacing: single; font: Times New Roman 12.

Do not attempt to format the file for journal style or introduce macros. Tables must be included in the word file but placed after the references at the end of the document along with any figure captions.

All figures must be supplied as separate TIFF or EPS files.

All references must be cited by date in parentheses, e.g. (Green, 2001) or Green (2001).
