Author Guidelines LIDA 2023

However, authors who choose to prepare a full text manuscript will have a chance to publish their papers in the special issue of the scholarly journal Education for Information (EfI). Authors who decide to submit their papers for consideration for publication in EfI are invited to submit their manuscripts to the LIDA’s electronic management system by January 31, 2023.

All papers should be full-length articles between 5000-8000 words of text excluding the references.
Reviews of submitted articles will be double-blind. The papers NOT meeting the reviewers’ standards will not be published.
Note that the manuscript should be uploaded as one file with tables and figures included. This file should be a Word document.

Organization of the paper and style of presentation
Manuscripts must be written in English. Authors whose native language is not English are advised to consult a professional English language editing service or a native English speaker prior to submission.
Manuscripts should be prepared with wide margins and double spacing throughout, including the abstract, footnotes and references. Every page of the manuscript, including the title page, references, tables, etc., should be numbered. However, in the text no reference should be made to page numbers; if necessary, one may refer to sections. Try to avoid the excessive use of italics and bold face.
Manuscripts should be organized in the following order:

  • Body of text (divided by subheadings)
  • Acknowledgements
  • References
  • Tables
  • Figure captions
  • Figures
  • Headings and subheadings should be numbered and typed on a separate line, without indentation.

Please note that at this stage it is NOT necessary to prepare the title page!
All manuscripts should be submitted as anonymous papers (e.g. remove all the author names and affiliations under the title, the author data from document properties, all acknowledgments, etc.).
Author data are entered under the segment Metadata. In this segment include the following data:

  • author names and affiliation (obligatory)
  • e-mail addresses
  • abstract
  • keywords
