Journal of Education

The Journal of Education is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, open access publication of original research and writing on education. The focus of the Journal is on all levels, stages and processes of education (e.g. formal, informal, non-formal, early childhood, lifelong, schooling, adult education, vocational education and training, higher education). The Journal aims to publish articles which show high levels of theoretical insight and /or analytic empirical work, and gives preference to articles that demonstrate engagement on the key issues that face South African education. Issues internal to education rather than external forces impacting on education are given preference. While it is intended that the journal will remain academic in nature, the readers are considered to be educational generalists and articles which are of interest to such readers will receive preference.

The Journal of Education is the periodical of the South African Education Research Association. The Journal of Education publishes two general issues per year, as well as the SAERA Conference Special Edition. In some years, there may also be an additional Special Edition. Back issues of the Journal can be accessed at http://joe.ukzn.ac.za
