Last, but not least, the article must include previous, relevant research on the article’s topic. 

2.     Methodical, methodological, theoretical and empirical transparency

Articles must include thorough explanations of methodical and methodological choices and approaches. The basis of the article’s analyses and interpretations should be stated, clearly emphasising which material or data (theoretical as well as empirical) is being analysed and interpreted – be it empirical observation or interview material, historical sources, pedagogical theories and tendencies, statistics, course descriptions, etc. Furthermore, consistency of applied methods and theories is emphasised.

3.     Purpose and presentation

The purpose of the article and thesis must be clearly presented, well-founded and defined using scientific angles. The argumentation must be clearly progressing with clear points and conclusions. The article should also contain a discussion of the results and conclusions presented related to relevant practice. For example in relation to primary and lower secondary education/private independent education, upper secondary education or university college education.
