Review of Education


Review of Education is an international peer reviewed journal for the publication of major and substantial articles of interest to researchers in education and is expected to become a major focal point for the publication of educational research from throughout the world.

It is one of the journals in the major portfolio of publications produced by the British Educational Research Association. For further information on the association please visit the British Educational Research Association web site.

The Journal is interdisciplinary in approach, and publishes major studies and in‐depth reviews that are significant, substantial, wide‐ranging and insightful, and have a genuinely international reach and orientation. The journal specialises in publishing substantial papers (10,000-20,000 words) of the highest quality from across the field of education. In particular, the journal publishes:

- Reports of major studies, including detailed discussion of interim and final findings of major research projects. A substantial part of each article should put the study into the context of its field. The design and methodology should also be explained and any limitations discussed.

- Substantial research syntheses, integrating critically results from qualitative, quantitative, or mixed-method empirical studies. Such syntheses may include systematic reviews of studies relevant to particular research questions, thematic narrative reviews, and quantitative meta-analyses.

- Original state-of-the-art reviews that assess the state of knowledge in a field of education research. Thematic, historical, conceptual or theoretical reviews of cutting-edge fields of research and reviews that connect creatively different fields of research are especially welcome.

The Editors have provided the following criteria to assist authors with preparing their submissions:

Have the guidelines on length (normally 10,000-20,000 words) been adhered to?

Is the writing clear, cogent and readily understandable by an international readership?

Is the article of sufficient general interest to the educational research community in terms of the focus or contribution to knowledge and understanding of the area concerned or research methods and methodology or the implications of the conclusions drawn? (i.e. a specialist focus need not exclude an article if it makes a general contribution to method or raises issues that link to questions that are of interest to the wider community).

Does the work demonstrate originality?

International readership
Is the article pitched at a level consistent with the standards expected of a major international educational research journal?

Peer Review Policy: All research articles in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by at least two anonymous referees.
