About Education Sciences

Aims

Education Sciences (ISSN 2227-7102) is a scholarly international open access journal. It publishes extended full-length research papers that have the scope to substantively address current issues in education. There is no restriction on the length of the papers relevant to any field of study within education. Submissions that synthesize information from disparate backgrounds, place research findings within a broad context, extend our methodological and theoretical understanding, and have the likelihood of informing education policy and practice, are preferred. The journal publishes quantitative, qualitative and mixed method research papers. Extended reviews of substantive research studies and/or technical reports published elsewhere are also welcome. Additionally, Education Sciences invites commentaries and original opinion pieces and/or analysis of issues and events of concern to education scholars that have international resonance.

Our aim is to encourage researchers to publish their research in as much detail as possible. Full reports of findings and methodical details should be provided. Computed data or files, if available and unable to be published in a normal way, can be deposited as supplementary material. Online features can take advantage of the variety of media made possible through electronic publishing, including the use of audio, video, complex or dynamic graphic displays, interactive sessions, performances, and other means to improve the communication of scholarly work. Features may be presented as a single article or in serial form.
