Acquired Wisdom (AW) is a publication series that preserves and transmits knowledge and skills obtained through experience by distinguished educational researchers. In their essays, authors share: 1) their perceived major contributions to the discipline, 2) major lessons learned during their careers, and 3) their opinions about the personal and situational factors (institutions and other affiliations, colleagues, advisors, and advisees) that stimulated their significant work. Authors for the project are selected and invited with the consultation of the Advisory Board.

"Legados Pedagógicos" is the Portuguese version of the session “Acquired Wisdom”. This section is dedicated to publishing testimonials, memorials, reflections by experienced researchers about their life and research trajectories, which can inspire new generations of researchers.
Texts submitted to the Pedagogical Legacies section must have at least 15 pages with reflections on the researcher's own academic trajectory, considering a peculiar and original point of view based on elements such as: main contributions to their field of research; key lessons learned during their career; opinions about the personal and situational factors (institutions and other affiliations, colleagues, advisors and mentees) that significantly stimulated their work; and their research production and products.
