it is recommended to send us to
email@example.com, a draft of the article in Word format (docx), to
be published, the same one that will be reviewed, and the due recommendations
will be made to formalize with the publication. The structure of an original
article: known as the "IMRD
format", the four sections of Introduction, Material-Methods, Results and
Discussion, are the axis of any work that wants to be published.

and innovation) of prototypes as global solutions for institutions, in
educational and commercial fields, with the aim of providing causal designs for
the intelligent and sustainable management of resources that contribute to the
development of science.
We manage in the field of Educational Sciences and
associated disciplines that enrich their sources.
Teachers, researchers, students and professionals
of all educational stages and modalities have in this environment a platform to

The journal publishes empirical research
results written in Spanish and English, and reports, studies and proposals,
as well as literary reviews, are also accepted. The works must be original,
not have been published in any medium or be in the process of arbitration or
publication. In this way, the contributions in the magazine can be:
Research: 3,000 to 6,500 words of text, including title, abstracts,
descriptors, tables, and references. Reports, studies and proposals: 3,000
to 6,500 words of text, including title, summaries, tables and references.
Reviews: 6,000 to 7,000 words of text, including tables and references. The
justified and topical references will be especially valued.
Presentation of the works
Papers must be presented in
Times New Roman 12 font, single line spacing, fully justified and without
tabs or blank spaces between paragraphs. Only the large blocks (title,
authors, summaries, descriptors, credits and epigraphs) will be separated
with a blank space. The page must have 2 centimeters in all its margins. The
papers must be submitted in a Microsoft Word document (.doc or .docx), and
the file must be anonymized in the file properties, so that the
identification of the author(s) does not appear.Estructura de los trabajos
For those works that deal with empirical research, the manuscripts will
follow the IMRD structure, with the Notes and Supports epigraphs being
optional. Those papers that, on the contrary, deal with reports, studies,
proposals and reviews may be more flexible in their headings, especially in
Material and methods, Analysis and results and Discussion and conclusions.
References are mandatory in all types of work.
Title (Spanish) / Title (English): Concise but informative, in Spanish on
the first line and in English on the second. A maximum of 80 characters with
spaces are accepted. The title is not only the responsibility of the
authors, being able to propose changes by the Editorial Board.
Full name and surnames: Of each of the authors, organized in order of
priority. A maximum of 3 authors per original will be accepted, although
there may be exceptions justified by the subject, its complexity and length.
Next to the names must follow the professional category, work center, email
of each author and/or ORCID number. It is mandatory to indicate if you have
the academic degree of doctor (include Dr./Dra. before the name).
Abstract (Spanish) / Abstract (English): It will have a
maximum length of 230 words, first in Spanish and then in English. The
summary will describe concisely and in this order: 1) Justification of the
topic; 2) Objectives; 3) Methodology and sample; 4) Main results; 5) Main
conclusions. It must be written impersonally "This paper analyzes...". In
the case of the abstract, the use of automatic translators will not be
accepted due to their poor quality.
4) Descriptors (Spanish) / Keywords (English):
6 descriptors must be exposed for each idiomatic version directly related to
the topic of the work. The use of keywords will be positively valued.
5) Introduction and state of the question: It must include the statement of
the problem, the context of the problem, the justification, foundations and
purpose of the study, using bibliographic citations, as well as the most
significant and current literature on the subject at a national and
6) Material and methods: It must be written in such a way that the reader
can easily understand the development of the research. In its case, it will
describe the methodology, the sample and the form of sampling, as well as
the type of statistical analysis used. If it is an original methodology, it
is necessary to explain the reasons that have led to its use and describe
its possible limitations.
7) Analysis and results: Efforts will be made to highlight the most
important observations, describing, without making value judgments, the
material and methods used. They will appear in a logical sequence in the
text and the essential tables and figures, avoiding duplication of data.
8) Discussion and conclusions: It will
summarize the most important findings, relating the observations themselves
with studies of interest, pointing out contributions and limitations,
without redounding data already commented on in other sections. Likewise,
the discussion and conclusions section must include the deductions and lines
for future research.
9) Support and acknowledgments (optional): The
Council Science Editors recommends that the author(s) specify the source of
funding for the research. Works with the endorsement of national and
international competitive projects will be considered a priority. In any
case, for the scientific evaluation of the manuscript, it must be anonymized
with XXXX only for its initial evaluation, in order not to identify authors
and research teams, which must be specified in the Cover Letter and later in
the final manuscript.
10) The notes
(optional) will go, only when necessary, at the end of the article (before
the references). They must be annotated manually, as Word's footnote/endnote
system is not recognized by layout systems. Note numbers are placed in
superscript, both in the text and in the endnote. Notes that include simple
bibliographic citations (without comments) are not allowed, since they must
go in the references.
Bibliographic citations should be outlined in the form of references to the
text. Under no circumstances should references not cited in the text be
included. Their number must be sufficient to contextualize the theoretical
framework with current and important criteria. They will be presented
alphabetically by the author's first surname.

What is ORCID?
ORCID is a platform to manage a unique identifier for researchers, independent,
accepted by organizations and scientific publishers as important as Nature,
Elsevier, Thomson-Reuters, CrossRef, Springer, Wiley, etc.
The unique identifier ORCID is standardized according to ISO 27729:2012. It
consists of 16 digits that form a unique, persistent code associated with each
author registered in ORCID.
