Peer review process
Contributions will be assessed by anonymous reviewers who will receive no information as to the author’s identity during the assessment process. Authors will be informed about the acceptance or rejection of the manuscript. Likewise, when assessors recommend it, manuscripts will be returned to their authors so that they introduce suggested amendments within the time limit advised by the Editorial Board. Authors will receive the editors’ decision as to the pertinence of the publishing of their articles three months after their delivery. Both decision-making by the Editorial Board and reviewing process results are not subject to appeal. Revising formal aspects and contents of manuscripts will be the authors’ sole responsibility and they will have to send back the modified version within the established time limits. Otherwise, publishing will be subjected to the possibilities offered by the Editorial Board.

Publishing Frequency
Praxis Educativa publishes on-line journals bi-annually and a printed volume annually.

Open Access Policy
There is immediate free access to the contents of this journal due to the assumption that research should reach the public freely, favoring in this way a more significant exchange of global knowledge.


This journal uses the LOCKSS system to create a file which is distributed among participating libraries; this action allows the afore-mentioned libraries to create permanent files of the journals aiming at their preservation and restoration.
