"Research in Education has been in continuous circulation since 1969. It is an international journal which publishes original research on theory, policy and practice in relation to education. The Journal welcomes papers that engage critically with contemporary debates within and across all spheres of formal and informal education, with a view to mapping possible new directions of thought and inquiry. Our global audience includes educational researchers, teachers, teacher educators, educational administrators, policy analysts, and philosophers of education.

We accept both empirical and theoretical papers, however, Research in Education looks for submissions which offer theoretically-rich analysis of educational issues. As a transdisciplinary journal, we encourage innovative papers from a range of perspectives, which might draw on theoretical approaches including postcolonialism, psychoanalysis, critical theory, post-structuralism or feminism, among many others.

Research in Education publishes double-blind peer-reviewed papers in special issues and as individual full-length articles. The editorial board reviews submitted papers on the basis of their critical engagement with educational issues, the quality of the argument, and the extent to which they ‘speak’ to our international audience.

Research in Education is indexed in ERIC,"

Research in Education provides a space for fully peer-reviewed, critical, trans-disciplinary, debates on theory, policy and practice in relation to Education. International in scope, we publish challenging, well-written and theoretically innovative contributions that question and explore the concept, practice and institution of Education as an object of study.

Research in Education thus seeks to play a leading role in relation to ongoing debates, mapping possible new directions of thought and inquiry, and providing vital space for critical, on-going conversations in relation to the multiple, complex and contested meaning of Education.
