Author Guidelines


As a platform for the publication of the an advanced scientific research in the areas of learning, instruction and teaching. The journal welcomes original empirical investigations. For manuscripts with an innovative or weighty methodology section, supplementary on-line material outlining the methodology is welcome (e.g., equations, data-treatment, syntax code, example data). The papers may represent a variety of theoretical perspectives and different methodological approaches. They may refer to any age level, from infants to adults and to a diversity of learning and instructional settings, from classroom to informal learning. They may rest on the full spectrum of established methodologies, from laboratory experiments to field observations. The major criteria in the review and the selection process concern the significance of the contribution to the area of learning and instruction. Pure method studies (e.g., instrument validation) are more suitable for other specialized journals. Studies which rely overly on self-report measures are typically not accepted.

Rigor of studies

  • Empirical research

Empirical research designs needs to state the extent to which the studies are representative of a particular population. The authors need to state the hierarchical structure of the data (e.g., time-points nested in students, nested in schools) and explicitly state how they have addressed this structure in their analyses. Supplementary materials including data quality control, alternative models, explicit formulas used in statistical analyses and modeling are welcome. Prior publications based on the same project and/or data must be acknowledged, especially prior publications using the same or similar measures. The unique contributions of a given manuscript as well as any overlap with prior publications based on the same project and/or data must be stated explicitly.

  • Experimental designs

Experimental designs should report on effect sizes found in previous studies in the field, to form a basis for a priori power calculations (or simulations) for the authors' particular design. Statements of implementation fidelity and treatment need to be explicit. Authors should demonstrate that findings are not due to extreme cases or outliers.

  • Qualitative studies

Studies in which qualitative methods are used are required to outline sufficient/adequate/specific procedural explanation to ascertain whether the standards for validity and reliability of the reported data are met, and an adequate vocabulary for these needs to be adhered to consistently. Procedures for e.g., inter-observer reliability, triangulation and/or audit trails need to be transparent and thoroughly grounded in the literature. Overly descriptive studies are typically not accepted.

Contact details for submission

Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically by using the OJS ( This site will guide authors stepwise through the submission process ( Authors are requested to submit the text, tables, and artwork in electronic form to this address. The Publisher and Editor regret that they are not able to consider submissions that do not follow these procedures.

Submission Preparation Checklist

You can use this list to carry out a final check of your submission before you send it to the journal for review. Please check the relevant section in this Guide for Authors for more details.

Ensure that the following items are present:

One author has been designated as the corresponding author with contact details:

• E-mail address

All necessary files have been uploaded:


• Include keywords

• All figures (include relevant captions)

• All tables (including titles, description)

• Ensure all figure and table citations in the text match the files provided

• Indicate clearly if color should be used for any figures in print

Graphical Abstracts / Highlights files (where applicable)

Further considerations

Manuscript has been 'spell checked' and 'grammar checked'

Note that submitted manuscripts will not go through language-focused copy editing with the journal prior to or after acceptance; language-focused copy editing is the responsibility of the authors prior to submission

All references mentioned in the Reference List are cited in the text, and vice versa.

Changes to authorship

Authors are expected to consider carefully the list and order of authors before submitting their manuscript and provide the definitive list of authors at the time of the original submission. Any addition, deletion or rearrangement of author names in the authorship list should be made only before the manuscript has been accepted and only if approved by the journal Editor. To request such a change, the Editor must receive the following from the corresponding author: (a) the reason for the change in author list and (b) written confirmation (e-mail, letter) from all authors that they agree with the addition, removal or rearrangement. In the case of addition or removal of authors, this includes confirmation from the author being added or removed.

Only in exceptional circumstances will the Editor consider the addition, deletion or rearrangement of authors after the manuscript has been accepted. While the Editor considers the request, publication of the manuscript will be suspended. If the manuscript has already been published in an online issue, any requests approved by the Editor will result in a corrigendum.

Desk reject procedure, criteria and recommendations

The editorial team of Premiere Educandum : Jurnal Pendidikan Dasar dan Pembelajaran applies the system of desk review to filter out papers that will not be processed in the review system. We regularly receive papers that are not aligned with the aims and scope of Premiere Educandum : Jurnal Pendidikan Dasar dan Pembelajaran or which lack essential information in one or more sections of the paper. In such cases, the paper will be desk rejected, as we know from experience that the paper will probably be rejected by our reviewers. We choose to do so in order to protect our reviewers; it is frustrating for them to have to review a paper which obviously does not comply with PE's basic criteria. Furthermore, waiting for the outcome of such a review is also detrimental for authors, who must wait for three months to hear that the paper is rejected, while this might have been made clear from the very beginning.

Therefore, we want to clarify the journal's criteria for a desk reject. If you receive a desk reject for your paper, this means that it will be sent back to you without further comments from reviewers, and will not be reviewed.

We tend to desk reject studies that:

  1. focus on instrument construction and validation and research methodology,
  2. investigate a local, practical issue without embedding it in a theoretical or more global perspective focus on research methodology, unless the focus is clearly on learning and instruction rely only on self-reports/questionnaires.


Literature review

Required: A literature review covers all relevant concepts/constructs included in the research questions of your paper, relates these concepts to the relevant extant literature, and indicates how the present study builds upon the current knowledge base.


  1. Add effect sizes in the literature. Do not write: 'These studies reported significant results'; instead add effect sizes per study when available. Provide sufficient details for studies included in the literature review.
  2. Provide a graphical representation of the theoretical model (relations between variables)on which your study is based.


Required: A rationale for recruitment and selection of participants. Provide an argument for the sufficiency of the sample size. In case of relatively small samples, the argument may be based on an a priori power calculation for the research design to be used.

Research design

Recommended: In general, a classic experimental design without a control group or pretest is likely to be vulnerable. In such cases, explain the alternatives for control and contrast that you implemented.



  1. When data are nested, multilevel data analyses should always be provided. Otherwise, an explanation of why the alterative you use would be valid will be expected.
  2. The interdependencies of dependent variables that are presented in the results section should be reported.



Visual support in case of models/relations between variables, especially in cases of mediation or moderation

Language (usage and editing services)

Please write your text in good English (American or British usage is accepted, but not a mixture of these).


Submission to this journal proceeds totally online, via, and you will be guided stepwise through the creation and uploading of your files.

Manuscripts should be no longer than 8,000 words for full length articles (including tables, figures or references). Word count is not applicable for revised versions and resubmissions. We appreciate that some of the reporting requirements we request can challenge the word limit imposed.

Article structure


Straightforward, informative, and represents the contents of the article. 


A concise and factual abstract is required (maximum 250 words). The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.


Searchable by search engine, truly represents the intention of research. 3 to 7 keyword is recommended.


Directing the reader about the importance of the research. Presenting significant problems, a clear state of the art, gap analysis, and novel concepts to fill the gaps. End it with the purpose of research.


Clear and replicable. Reveals how research objectives are achieved with the appropriate tools, procedures, and stages.


Presenting experimental or survey data, or any other kind of data depending on the type of research. The results are generally presented in clear and readable tables and figures.


Meaningful. Good discussion is written as a dialogue that reveals the progress of the research in comparison to previous researches.


Contains a summary of research results (the most important research finding) that relates to the objectives written in the introduction.

References (APA, 6th ed.)

Accountable, about 80% of the literature from primary sources (reputable journals) and up to date (last 10 years), at least 20 references. Use reference management tools.

Essential title page information

• Author names and affiliations. Please clearly indicate the given name(s) and family name(s) of each author and check that all names are accurately spelled. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done).

• Corresponding author. Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. This responsibility includes answering any future queries about Methodology and Materials. Ensure that the e-mail address is given and that contact details are kept up to date by the corresponding author.

Graphical abstract

Image size: Please provide an image with a minimum of 531 × 1328 pixels (h × w) or proportionally more. The image should be readable at a size of 5 × 13 cm using a regular screen resolution of 96 dpi.


Define abbreviations that are not standard. Such abbreviations that are unavoidable in the abstract must be defined at their first mention there. Ensure consistency of abbreviations throughout the article.


Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article before the references and do not, therefore, include them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise. List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proof reading the article, etc.).


Please submit tables as editable text and not as images. Tables can be placed either next to the relevant text in the article, or on separate page(s) at the end. Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text and place any table notes below the table body. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in them do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. Please avoid using vertical rules and shading in table cells.


Citation in text

Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Any references cited in the abstract must be given in full. Unpublished results and personal communications are not recommended in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. If these references are included in the reference list they should follow the standard reference style of the journal and should include a substitution of the publication date with either 'Unpublished results' or 'Personal communication'. Citation of a reference as 'in press' implies that the item has been accepted for publication.

Web references

As a minimum, the full URL should be given and the date when the reference was last accessed. Any further information, if known (DOI, author names, dates, reference to a source publication, etc.), should also be given. Web references can be listed separately (e.g., after the reference list) under a different heading if desired, or can be included in the reference list.

Data references

This journal encourages you to cite underlying or relevant datasets in your manuscript by citing them in your text and including a data reference in your Reference List. Data references should include the following elements: author name(s), dataset title, data repository, version (where available), year, and global persistent identifier. Add [dataset] immediately before the reference so we can properly identify it as a data reference. The [dataset] identifier will not appear in your published article.

Reference management software

Reference template available in many of the most popular reference management software products. These include all products that support Citation Style Language styles, such as Mendeley.

Reference style

Text: Citations in the text should follow the referencing style used by the American Psychological Association.

List: references should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. More than one reference from the same author(s) in the same year must be identified by the letters 'a', 'b', 'c', etc., placed after the year of publication.
