    in Higher Education



    Full Text Submission Deadline is extended to Sept. 8th, 2021


  • About

    The universities face two challenges that are big opportunities at the same time. One is the digitalisation and communication paradigm. The students are digital natives and use technologies all the time while most universities practice the traditional pattern of teaching. In response to their needs, universities need to adapt to learning to Millennials. Another challenge is the necessity to link the education with the practice, integrate the reality of professional innovation activities to the context of education according to the demand of the industry.

    The Educator of Tomorrow is to be able to orchestrate the wide diversity in the supply of digital teaching materials, project-based learning in international multidisciplinary teams and real needs of industry and society.


    CEPHEI is a capacity-building Erasmus+ funding project for development and dissemination of blended learning in Industrial Innovation

    Useful practical information for authors (from L.Chechurin, book editor, 24 Aug. 2021)

    The closer we are to the final version of the book the more detail we have from the Publisher on how to shape the chapters and what is needed to ensure smooth book processing. Of cause the text and the message are always in the center of everything, but it is good to make sure that your message is packaged well. There could be unavoidable extra efforts to be done to meet publisher standards, we ask for your understanding and donating a bit longer time to perfecting the view. Not everything was possible to take into account from the very beginning and we are sorry for that.

    1. The latest Macmillan instructions for the authors are here.

    2. It is strongly recommend that all chapter authors (corresponding authors, co-authors, contributing authors) include their affiliation and email address in their manuscript.

    3. Please hold your horses and use the illustrations only in the cases when it is a must. We have a limit of 1 (one) figure per chapter. All illustrations will be available in full color in the eBook but may be black and white in the printed book. If color is essential for individual figure in the printed version, please provide the corresponding figures in a separate spreadsheet.

    4. Abstract. It was not required at the stage of peer-reviewing. But to facilitate online searching, using e.g. Google, we will need to provide an abstract for each of your chapter. We will ask the abstract when the paper make it to the book.

    5. For your index, please identify the terms within the manuscript file by using the indexing function in Word. Alternatively, please highlight all instances of the word you would like to see indexed throughout the manuscript file. Another possibility is to supply us with a separate list of index terms for each chapter.

    6. Macmillan will publish the book in different formats, while the central form would be online presentation. To get an idea of it in Full-text HTML you may freely access the following eBook . Please, do not worry about the converting your text into this style, our job is to bring the neat text in Word or TeX format.

    7. We all will need to sign the Publishing Agreement for Contributions in Collected Works form. All authors submitting content to a contributed volume must grant to Macmillan specific permission to publish the work. This is a legal requirement that arises from provisions of copyright law and acts as additional protection for you. Again, the form will be needed at the stage of final preparation of the text for uploading to Macmillan portal. Each corresponding author should print the form, enter the title of the chapter as well as the names of the authors at the top of the form and sign it. Important: Details of the chapter authors (sequence, names, name and affiliation of corresponding author) given in this form should be complete, final and correspond to the details given in the manuscript. As this is a legal document, and they cannot accept changes at a later stage.

    8. Using 3rd Party Materials: Please familiarize yourself with the Springer Nature Guide to Copyright and Permissions, which contains advice on including third-party content or material that you have created yourself and published elsewhere in your manuscript. In short, be ready to present the 3rd party consent in case you use its materials in your chapter in any form.

    Hope, that was useful. Small efforts at this stage will save much time and nerves later.
