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. It is a growing focal point for the publication of educational research from throughout the world.

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 (8,000–20,000 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.

In 2022 Review of Education received its first Impact Factor, standing at 2.4.

Review of Education Editors’ Choice Award 2022

The Review of Education Editors’ Choice Award recognises the highest quality and most impactful articles published in the journal. The winning paper for the 2022 volume is:

  • Topping, K. J.Douglas, W.Robertson, D., & Ferguson, N. (2022). Effectiveness of online and blended learning from schools: A systematic reviewReview of Education10(2), e3353.

The editors said: ‘We have had some excellent, useful and widely read new articles in Review of Education this year. We selected this review of the evidence on online and blended learning because it is clearly of interest to readers, and a topical issue given recent lockdowns (and even perhaps teacher strikes). It reflects the origins and purpose of Review of Education – the piece is long and needs to be so in order to cover the field. This flexibility to publish longer articles is a key benefit of the journal. The review includes, as it ought, a consideration of the quality of each research report before synthesis, but also has a brief discussion of the practical difficulties of this and a comparison of different approaches.’
