Inés Gil-Jaurena


The editorial project for the relaunching of Open Praxis as the ICDE scholarly, peer-reviewed and open access journal included three main aspects: editorial process, scientific quality and dissemination. After 6 published issues in 2013 and 2014, this editorial focuses on the last aspect, related to visibility, providing a brief report on the actions developed to promote Open Praxis. A second part introduces the nine papers included in the issue.
