English in Education , the academic journal of the National Association for the Teaching of English (NATE), publishes papers and articles which report on research related to all aspects of English teaching from early years to university and later life. The journal welcomes articles from the United Kingdom and from other nations where English language and literature are part of the school and Higher Education curriculum and are taught to mother-tongue English speakers. NATE is an active member of the International Federation for the Teaching of English (IFTE) and its journal seeks to share the knowledge and expertise of English teachers throughout the world. To this end, it provides an international forum for the work of researchers, practitioners, advisers and consultants who are engaged in questioning both practice and policy related to the curriculum; in particular, it promotes dynamic and progressive approaches to teaching.
The work of the Journal is overseen by the Academic Review Board, which ensures fair reviewing of all submissions through anonymous refereeing. The Journal invites the submission of papers produced within a research paradigm which report on dynamic and interactive pedagogies and which interrogate contemporary responses to the changing nature of communication in all its forms, including drama, digital and media literacy, as well as all aspects of both language and literature. Guest editors are engaged for Special Issues to focus on a particular theme or contemporary policy question.
The journal is published by Wiley-Blackwell for the National Association, which represents teachers of English within the four countries of the United Kingdom and supports international teachers of English in cases where English is the mother-tongue. It has a wide readership in Britain, Canada, Australia and the USA. As well as books and pamphlets, the Association also publishes the professional journal Teaching English.
