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.

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.

Review of Education announces winner of its Editors’ Choice Award for 2021

Recognising the highest quality and most impactful articles in the journal’s recent history, the editors of Review of Education have chosen the winner of this year’s award from among the many excellent articles published in the journal in 2021.

The authors provide an overview of the review topography of prominent second-order research on teaching, and how that topography has changed over time, by mapping the most-cited reviews of research on teaching in Web of Science of the past four decades.  The editors admired the article’s attempt at an innovation in its field, and felt that it exemplified the kind of novel and ambitious research that RoE provides a home for. They hope that this award will encourage more researchers in from Scandinavia and further afield to publish with us.
