As an education journal, the IAFOR Journal of Education (JoE) encourages interdisciplinary research where the primary focus is on addressing critical issues and current trends in education. This would include exploring significant themes, exceptional programs and promising practice in the field of education and educational policy. The anticipated audience is preservice and inservice teachers and administrators, university faculty and students, education policy makers, and others interested in educational research.

JoE is an internationally reviewed and editorially independent interdisciplinary journal associated with IAFOR’s international conferences on education. Like all IAFOR publications, it is freely available to read online, and is free of publication fees for authors. The first issue was published in May 2013.

Indexed in: Scopus, SCIMAGO, DOAJ, ERIC, EBSCO Discovery Service, MIAR, TROVE, ROAD, Scilit, SHERPA/RoMEO, WorldCat, Google Scholar, [email protected], LENS.ORG, ScienceGate, Dimensions, scite__ and Ulrich's™. DOIs are assigned to each published issue and article via Crossref.

Information about the Studies in Education issue

As the world settles into a new normal following the global pandemic, education systems around the globe are looking at different forms of educational provision. It has become imperative to move on and continue with renewed enthusiasm, identifying new ways of working whilst respecting the values of the past. This is as true for the field of education as it is for so many other aspects of life.

The theme for the 2022 Studies in Education issue of the IAFOR Journal of Education is ‘Student Learning: Building on the Past, Innovating for the Future’. Submissions open on 4 July and can come from any field of education. Rather than concentrating on the difficulties of meeting the educational needs of students during the pandemic, we are looking for manuscripts that discuss how education has triumphed in assisting student learning and has even found innovative ways of improving that learning.

Please note:

    • Once an article has been rejected, an author cannot resubmit either an amendment to this article or another article for this issue of the journal.
    • We will only accept one submission from any author in a particular issue and no more than two submissions, in different issues, over the course of a year. This includes both individual and shared authorship. If you submit as an individual you may not be a shared author on another submission, and vice versa. Also, if you have had a submission rejected you cannot be an author on another paper for that same issue.

Announcement: Inclusive Education Issue

It is with regret that we are not continuing with the Inclusive Education issue of the IAFOR Journal of Education. We have not received enough ‘in scope’ submissions to be able to publish an issue of high academic quality. Most submissions have been about other topics meaning that there are not enough for review and subsequent revision.

We thank the authors for their support and hope that you will consider submitting to one of our other issues in the future.
