The International Journal of Smart Education and Urban Society (IJSEUS) presents a platform to discuss ideas, problems, challenges, and solutions for changes in society brought about by technological innovations. Urban society requires smart, innovative, collaborative learning infrastructures that cultivate a learning culture in the context of 21st century education; where learning goes beyond the space and time context and becomes available everywhere by using different smart educational technologies. This brings advantages and challenges for educators at all levels in promoting the knowledge, skills, competencies, and talents of inhabitants; which should be a key strategic objective in modern cities.

This new phenomenon brings educational science in at a new level because there is a need for a new generation of people who can construct their knowledge in multiple dimensions. There should be research on ways that people learn by using smart solutions, which previously had been unexplored as digital. People learn differently and increase their knowledge not only by a social constructivist way of learning, but also the wide range use of smart devices. Use of different smart solutions change the role of teachers and the educational environments, and brings new questions to educational science as the traditional role of the educator as a person who organizes the learning process has diminished. Researchers of the educational field start to use the term “smart education” for this phenomenon to acknowledge that there is new movement in educational science; and that new educational approaches and a new research methodology must be built to ensure development of a new generation for urban society. Simply put, more and more educators and students are looking for new ways to use technological innovations in the teaching and learning process.

Submission Procedure:

Prospective authors should note that only original and previously unpublished article manuscripts will be considered. Interested authors must consult the Journal Guidelines for Manuscript Submission at PRIOR to submission. Any further questions may be answered at All article manuscript submissions will be forwarded to at least three members of the editorial review board of the journal for a double-blind peer review. The final decision regarding acceptance/revision/rejection will be based on the reviews received from the reviewers.

Starting January 1st, 2023, this journal will be converting from Hybrid Open Access to full Gold Open Access, meaning from January 1st, 2023 onward all of its published contents will be 100% open access and the copyright of the published work will stay with the author(s) ((Note: IGI Global open access journal article manuscript publishing offers authors the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) licensing arrangement. The copyright for the work remains solely with the author(s) of the article manuscript), and the publisher will provide the published contents free of charge globally (there will no longer be subscription fees or payment of any kind required for individuals and libraries to access and utilize the published contents).

Once the journal is converted to Gold Open Access in 2023 and will no longer have subscription revenue backing it, the journal will be heavily reliant on Open Access Article Processing Charges (APCs) payment provided by either the author(s) or his/her/their respective institution or another funding agency, AFTER the article manuscript submission has been through a full double-blind peer review and the Editor-in-Chief at his/her full discretion has decided to accept the manuscript based on the results of the double-blind peer review process. The APC will offset the costs of all of the activities associated with the publication of the article manuscript, including the digital tools used to support the manuscript management and review process, the typesetting, formatting and layout, online hosting, the submission of the journal’s content to numerous abstracts, directories, and indexes, third party software (plagiarism checks), editorial support which includes manuscript tracking, communications, submission guideline checks, communications with authors and reviewers, as well as all promotional support and activities which includes metadata distribution, press releases, promotional communications, web content, ads, fliers, brochures, postcards, etc. for the journal and its published contents; and the fact that all published articles will be freely accessible and able to be posted and disseminated widely by the authors.

The Article Processing Charge (APC) for this journal is currently set at $1,300 USD and authors will not be asked to provide payment of the APC fee (directly to the publisher) until AFTER their manuscript has gone through the full double-blind peer review process and the Editor-in-Chief at his/her full discretion has decided to accept the manuscript based on the results of the double-blind peer review process. Please note that there is absolutely NO correlation between the APC (Article Processing Charge) being paid by the author and the results of review process outcomes.

For more information on APCs and Open Access Publishing please visit IGI Global’s open access publishing page here. Funding should be secured before submitting to an IGI Global open access journal. Researchers who are uncertain where to find funding for OA processing charges can visit IGI Global's Open Access Funding Resources Page. It is recommended to read the following article published by Web of Science, “A researcher’s complete guide to open access papers”.

Developing Country Statement:

Those coming from certain developing countries will be able to take advantage of discounts or waivers with careful consideration by IGI Global’s Executive Editorial Board. Also, authors of submitted manuscripts can take advantage of IGI Global’s Read and Publish Open Access Initiative, which allows authors who are affiliated with institutions that are currently subscribed to one or more IGI Global databases to benefit from APC funding (you can learn more about how this all works here). In the case of a multi-authored work, even if only one author is eligible for the discount or waiver, all authors of the work will benefit from the waiver or discount. Additionally, if an author chooses to utilize any of IGI Global’s Author Services on their manuscript, the amount paid for any of these author services will be deducted from the final Article Processing Charge (APC).
