Formazione & insegnamento publishes a minimum of three issues per year. Each issue is dedicated to a specific topic but also accepts non-thematic submissions. Additionally, the journal welcomes the editing of special issues deriving from specific events involving the Italian and international scholarly community (e.g., proceedings). Regular issues, when extensive, are divided into two tomes, with a 30 days delay between the first and the second.

Formazione & insegnamento also hosts a special section on "Sports and Motor Learning", promoted by the Italian Society for Sports and Motor Learning (SIEMeS). Given the wealth of contribution coming from the field, the special section is usually published in separate supplements. The review and editorial process is the same for regular issues and supplements.
