Type of material and style

Papers should be original and of high quality and if published elsewhere, they should provide for a different perspective. The following types of material are published in the journal: research papers and case studies that help towards promoting, sharing and re-using knowledge, experiences and lessons learnt. The style and terminology used and the ideas expressed should be clear and accessible to a wide audience. Such clarity should not be detrimental to the depth and precision of contents. Note that the ePractice journal discourages submissions that promote a specific commercial product or service.
