About the Journal


The International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools (IJCSES) is committed to increase the understanding of computer science education in schools by publishing theoretical manuscripts, empirical studies and literature reviews. The journal focuses on exploring computer science education in schools through pedagogical, cognitive and psychological perspectives. 

Objectives and Mission

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 both theory and practice. This would enable academics and educators who are interested in research about theoretical developments in Computer Science Education, to reach 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.

The journal welcomes studies from diverse research orientation. Studies that are based on qualitative data, such as case studies and  historical analysis are equally highly regarded as studies based on quantitative data.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Computer Science Education
  • Computing
  • Theory of computation
  • Programming language theory
  • Algorithms and data structures
  • Psychology of Computing
  • Computational Thinking
  • Teacher Training in Computer Science
  • Programming theory
  • Creativity and Computing
  • Artificial Intelligence 
  • Computer graphics and virtual reality
  • Computer Game Design in schools
  • Text based coding
  • Visual coding
  • Teacher research in Computing
Peer Review Policy

IJCSES is committed to a transparent, productive, and rigorous peer review process. IJCSES‘s peer review process asks a great deal of 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.

Publication Charge Policy
Publishing in IJCSES Journal is free of charge.
