British Education Research Journal

Published: 1 January 2013

The British Educational Research Journal (BERJ) is BERA’s flagship journal, and has gone from strength to strength in recent years. Indexed by the Institute of Scientific Information, Philadelphia on the Social Science Citation Index, its impact factor has increased in each successive year. In 2017, BERJ’s impact factor was 1.24, and it was ranked 104th of 235 international journals in the area – which is very high for a general education journal.

Although the journal showcases the very best of British educational research, it publishes articles by, and for, researchers in education throughout the world. The journal is interdisciplinary in approach, and includes reports of case studies, experiments and surveys, discussions of conceptual and methodological issues and of underlying assumptions in educational research, and accounts of research in progress.
