About the journal
The journal is deliberately multi-disciplinary and broad in its scope, and addresses rigorous research and evaluation at all educational levels and in all sectors and fields of education. It publishes qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods studies, for example, reports, surveys, case studies, experiments, action research, naturalistic and qualitative research, longitudinal studies, interventions in education and evaluation, and accounts of research in progress.
The journal publishes papers on studies that are empirical, non-empirical, conceptual, theoretical, applied or grounded in theory (e.g. evaluation studies), methodological, substantive and scholarly, and that have education at their heart. It also welcomes systematic review studies, meta-analyses, position papers, discussion papers and critiques related to issues concerning evidence-based education. It does not accept papers on research instrument validation or on topics that are not relevant to an international readership. The journal also publishes book reviews.
