About the Journal
Focus and Scope
The objective of this journal is to develop a research network in teaching and learning in Computer Science Education in schools and related topics through high-quality research that focuses on both theory and practice. This would enable academics and educators who are interested in research about theoretical developments in Computer Science Education, to reach the most recent studies. The network would also provide a communication point for teachers who are interested in engaging in research projects, but not feeling confident. Additionally, it provides researchers, teachers, students, and policymakers with valuable information in Computer Science Education in schools, and increases their understanding of the pedagogies and practices in this field. The IJCSES also identifies future directions in this constantly changing educational medium.

Peer Review Process
IJCSES is committed to a transparent, productive, and rigorous peer-review process. IJCSES peer review process asks many reviewers and community members who participate in the open peer review process. Because of this, we will only publish original contributions that have not been published, or submitted for publication, elsewhere.
After Open Peer Review has been completed, authors will have at least two weeks to revise their contributions. Upon submitting a revised contribution, all contributions will be published and archived in a specific issue on the IJCSES website.
IJCSES will be published four times a year.
