Dear E-mentor readers,

It is my great pleasure to present the next English volume of the academic journal E-mentor. We continue our attempts to reach the international audience both from academia and from business with the latest results of research related to teaching and learning with technologies and to knowledge management in modern organizations. In this volume, one can find the whole spectrum of issues regarding lifelong learning. First, the article on the use of blended approach to helping children with speech difficulties, then the example of preparing university students for research work and another two papers analyzing the behavior of the participants of online classes (Planer-doer model and task difficulty analysis) to end up with the retrospective analysis of educational choices made by adult learners.

I would also strongly recommend the interview with Olivier Crouzet, one of the main actors in the "born to code" movement originated in Paris in 2013 and widely known as Ecole 42 (in French) or School 42 (in English). Concerning knowledge management, it is worth to mention the article on the role of mindfulness in transforming the competencies of contemporary leaders.

We continuously undertake the efforts to adjust our publication process to the international standards better; therefore, starting from issue No 4(81)/2019, every author's name is accompanied by their ORCID number if applicable.

The process of publishing the international versions of E-mentor entirely in English will be continued in the year 2020 as well. We do encourage the researchers both from academia and from business to publish with us. E-mentor is an open-access journal available for free online and in printed form. There is also no charge for publishing. All scientific papers are peer-reviewed (we apply the double-blind review procedure), and the journal is indexed in several international databases, including Web of Science ESCI and EBSCO.

A brief guide for Authors can be found on last but one page of the journal. More detailed instructions and the submission form are available online at If you have any questions concerning the publication in E-mentor, please contact the editorial team at
