ATENA Didaktik subjects all contributions to an editorial review to ensure clarity and relevance. However, the journal's communication of research is focused on dissemination of findings from scholarly publications. Hence, since the journal does not aim to publish original findings, the published articles are not formally peer-reviewed.
