The Editors of Level3 invite scientific articles, analytical think-pieces, reports, or reflections, related to policy, operational or academic aspects of inclusion of qualifications in national qualifications frameworks (NFQs), with a focus on qualifications from outside the state-supported school, VET and university systems.
In particular, we invite contributions from partners in the Erasmus+ Project NQF-In and from delegates to the NQF-In Final Conference in Warsaw, June 2018.
Length of contributions
Level3 is an online journal, so we are flexible with regard to the length of scientific articles and other items. The following guidelines should help authors:
Full scientific articles: 5,000 – 6,000 words including references and appendices.
Reports: up to 8,000 words, larger if approved by the editors.
Analytical think-pieces: 1,000 – 2,000 words.
Languages – authors who do not use English as a first language may submit items in their first language provided there is an English translation with it. We copy-edit the English version only.
Copyright Copyright remains with authors. ‘Second’ publications – authors may submit relevant items which have been published previously provided they have appropriate permissions. Such items are identified.
Authors are responsible for the accuracy of their own writings and for ensuring that they have all relevant permissions to submit writing generated with others. Authors are responsible for any consequences that arise from content inaccuracies or from inadequate acknowledgements.
Peer review: Articles may be peer reviewed if authors request it. Peer -reviewed articles are identified.
