Examples of the kind of papers we publish

  • Papers which describe the collection and interpretation of data concerning the design or use of an educational approach;
  • Papers which describe the application of principled methods, theory or tools to the design, development and/or implementation of an educational approach;
  • Organisational, management or policy initiatives in the area of educational design, development and implementation;
  • Large case studies of local experiences where an educational approach has been fully implemented for over at least one year;
  • Major educational technology developments;
  • Major pedagogical or curriculum development initiatives.

It is unlikely that we will publish your paper if it has no evidence of evaluation. Where local studies are reported there must be applicability in other contexts and a wider application.
