1 «MEDIA EDUCATION. STUDI, RICERCHE, BUONE PRATICHE» THE JOURNAL OF MED ITALIAN ASSOCIATION FOR MEDIA EDUCATION «Media Education Studi, ricerche e buone pratiche» is an academic and refereed journal that publishes original articles related to Media Education issues and more in general to the intersection between education, media and society. It is open to established and emerging scholars, media professionals and educational practitioners (in and out of schools). Articles may be of two kinds: - research articles and theoretical/critical papers to be included in the section Studi e Ricerche ; - articles reporting accounts of media education activities carried out by media professionals and educational practitioners (in and out of schools) to be included in the section Buone Pratiche. 1. Submission 1.1 General requirements By the very act of submitting a paper for publication, the author recognizes that the paper has not been previously or simultaneously submitted to another periodical or collection of papers, including editions in other languages, on the internet or in altered form. Authors whose papers include illustrations should ensure reproduction rights and provide proof of that to the Editorial Board. Papers that have been accepted for publication are subjected to proofreading. Authors may be required to provide promptly the missing information as indicated by proofreaders. Manuscripts must be submitted in electronic form by to the editorial board members: Articles must include: 1

2 Title (bold, capital letters). Name of the author(s), institutional affiliation, address. Abstract. It should describe the purpose, materials and methods, results, and conclusion in a single paragraph no longer than 250 words. Keywords (max 5 words, after abstract). Acknowledgements must be inserted in a starred footnote (*) positioned on top of the last word of the title. In case of multiple authors, the distribution of paragraphs among them must be indicated here. All other footnotes must be numbered. Manuscripts won t be returned to authors. The Editors bear no responsibility for lost or damaged manuscripts. Submission of articles reporting accounts of media education activities carried out by media professionals and educational practitioners (in and out of schools). We also publish (in the section Buone Pratiche ) articles reporting accounts of media education activities conducted in educational contexts (both formal and informal). In this case, authors, in addition to the above-mentioned requirements, are also asked to give specific information with regards to: The context, i.e., the institution and place where the activity was carried out, the people involved, etc. The general aims and the learning objectives of the activity The methods, structure, phases and timing of the activity The resources and costs: number of people involved, materials and equipments needed, costs and funding sources The product(s) (videos, hypertext, multimedia production, etc.) and teaching/evaluation materials developed during the activity Assessment and evalution: specify the assessment and evaluation procedures, materials and results that have been developed during the activities. In order to give a general, quick overview of the experience authors are required to fill in the following box: SETTING (name and address of institution where the activity took place) TARGET DURATION OF THE ACTIVITY MATERIALS AND TECHNOLOGICAL EQUIPMENT PRODUCT(S) 2

3 2. Blind-Peer Review Process We publish articles that receive two positive reviews in the process of blind peer review: the author s identity is not known to the reviewers, and vice versa. The Editorial Board submits to the reviewers a version of the paper with the author s name removed from the title. In order to avoid self-disclosure, authors are asked to refer only generally to their own published work, refraining from any piece of information that might lead to the identification of the author of the reviewed text. Reviewers reports will be based on the following criteria: Originality and relevance in the field of media education Quality of the theoretical framework Clarity in specifying the research questions, the hypotheses, the objectives, the methods, and the findings; In case of a best practice, an important criterion is the level of completeness in giving a critical and thorough description of the activity, also with regards to its transferability and evaluation procedures and results; Style, language and comprehensibility. Reviewers reports are provided to the authors, who may then modify their papers with regard to the reviewers objections or recommendations. Authors who are not willing to accept the reviewers opinion should notify the Editorial Board in written form, stating the reasons for disagreement. After assessing the author s arguments, the Editorial Board shall either submit the paper to additional reviewers or decide not to publish it. 3. Language We publish articles in Italian, English, Spanish and French. 4. Editorial norms Please read these norms carefully and follow them closely to ensure that the review and publication of your paper is as efficient and quick as possible. The Editors reserve the right to return manuscripts that are not in accordance with these instructions. 3
