The second objective of IJCBSE is the publication of theoretical works that advance the literature in area of cognition and human behavior in educational context, opening new lines of research in the field.

IJCBSE publishes articles that, from a variety of perspectives and methods, deepen in the understanding of the processes, tools, contexts, and outcomes of school and non-school learning. These works can include, among others, the analysis of the dynamics of classroom interactions, the relationships between learning and development, the design of effective learning environments, learning processes in non-school contexts (such as the home, the street, after school programs, ICT), discourse use in those contexts, and interactions between learning and identity. These analyses are undertaken to take into account the cultural dimension of teaching and learning processes in societies that are increasingly diverse.

IJCBSE also publishes reviews of major books and dissertations that fall into the focus and scope of the journal and that represents a central contribution in the field.

Plagiarism is the exposing of another person’s thoughts or words as though they were your own, without permission, credit, or acknowledgment, or because of failing to cite the sources properly. Plagiarism can take diverse forms, from literal copying to paraphrasing the work of another. In order to properly judge whether an author has plagiarized, we emphasize the following possible situations:

  • An author can literally copy another author’s work- by copying word by word, in whole or in part, without permission, acknowledge or citing the original source. This practice can be identified by comparing the original source and the manuscript/work who is suspected of plagiarism.
  • Substantial copying implies for an author to reproduce a substantial part of another author, without permission, acknowledge or citation. The substantial term can be understood both in terms of quality as quantity, being often used in the context of Intellectual property. Quality refers to the relative value of the copied text in proportion to the work as a whole.
  • Paraphrasing involves taking ideas, words or phrases from a source and crafting them into new sentences within the writing. This practice becomes unethical when the author does not properly cite or does not acknowledge the original work/author. This form of plagiarism is the more difficult form to be identified.
