In addition to the main section Studies and Essays, which mainly presents the results of long-term research, the journal offers a discussion-oriented content. It features Discussion and Disputes as well as Reviews and Reflections sections. The latter two allow scholars to discuss some of the current issues in historical science. The History – Theory – Criticism journal also maintains a long tradition of publishing parallel and collaborative reviews, which offer a more comprehensive and multifaceted reflection on historical studies.

    The following are published in the journal:

    STUDIES (peer-reviewed)

    Theoretical studies present new theoretical approaches or concepts, critically analyzing or comparing existing theories based on "vertical insight" into the topic.

    Review studies provide a comprehensive overview and critical analysis of the nature of phenomena, concepts or theories in a "horizontal view".

    Methodological studies analyze research approaches, assess their strengths and weaknesses, and show how to properly design research in a particular area of inquiry.

    Empirical studies report on an empirical research investigation and meet all the requirements of basic, applied or action research. An empirical study should be structured into the following parts: problem formulation, research methods and procedures used, how empirical data were evaluated, research findings and their interpretation, conclusions and discussion, literature review.

    Historical studies focus on the reconstruction of changes in educational and educational discourses, educational processes, main actors and the role of selected educational institutions.

    DISCUSSIONS, REPORTS OR REVIEWS (shorter unreviewed texts)

    Discussions stimulate a sophisticated discussion of pedagogical issues in a sophisticated way and on the basis of professional arguments.

    The reports briefly and concisely report on current events in the professional community at home and abroad. If it is a report on school practice, it should be analytical and include the context of the issue. Reports may also include medallions of important personalities.

    Reviews critically and analytically assess recent important publications and evaluate their contribution to the field.

  • Scientia in educatione

    Scientia in educatione (sciED) is an international biannual peer-reviewed and open-access journal that publishes original research studies. Its main objectives are:

    • To provide a platform for high-quality educational research in STEM subjects, that is, science (biology, environmental studies, geology, physics, and chemistry), technology, engineering and mathematics.

    • To promote both theoretical and empirical research in STEM education, ranging from early childhood to university education.

    • To bridge the gap between research and practice by publishing texts which serve not only to deepen knowledge and provide information about the current state of research, but also as valuable inspirational sources for further research and educational practice.

    The journal scope covers (but is not limited to) reports of STEM-focused research on pupils’ and students’ learning, teaching goals and policy, the use of educational technology, and pre- and in-service teacher education.  

    The journal especially encourages the publication of studies which are of interest to international research communities. Although papers can be published in Czech or Slovak, the journal encourages authors to write in English so that their work is more widely available. The educational research in south- and middle-European countries draws on shared experience in culture and education and therefore sciED seems a good venue for publishing research conducted in these countries. Nevertheless, the sciED editors do not want to limit the scope of the articles and welcome any contributions in which the authors explain their local contexts and demonstrate the significance of their work for a global educational community.

    The journal is aimed at international researchers in STEM education and pedagogy, doctoral and master students, and the expert public. The journal publishes the following types of articles: original research articles, original theoretical studies, surveys and discussion papers. A special issue on a specific topic of interest to the international audience can be suggested by the members of the international editorial board.

    Scientia in educatione respects the COPE Core Practices recommended by the Committee for Publication Ethics (COPE).

    Scientia in educatione does not tolerate plagiarism or other unethical behavior. Editors, authors, and reviewers follow the principles of the COPE Core Practices.

    On August 15, 2014, Scientia in educatione was included in the ERIH PLUS database.
