Aims and scope

Education Reviews publishes stand-alone literature reviews presenting up-to-date overviews of existing knowledge on topics in any education-related field. The articles are requested to comprehensively cover the research literature on their topic. They are expected to – in a structured manner – outline the main milestones of knowledge development on the topic; identify filiations of thought that shaped the knowledge accumulation process; highlight the main converging, contrasting or parallel views, approaches (including concepts, theories and methods) and results; emphasise the main findings; and spot the main shortcomings and points of weakness or uncertainty that invite further research in future.

Literature review is a critical step in the researching process. Education Reviews aims to provide its readers with comprehensive and structured insights as a starting point when addressing a research issue.

Education Reviews provides researchers with opportunities for early publishing the literature survey part of ongoing long-term research. The journal also offers those with extensive research experience in a field, opportunities to bring together and publish the knowledge acquired.

Education Reviews is an international peer-reviewed journal addressed to education researchers. It is online and open access. The articles must be written in English. The journal has two issues per year (January and July). Submissions are to be completed by May (for publication in July the following year) or by November (for publication in January fourteen months later). Authors will receive feedback from the first refereeing round by November (when having submitted by May) or by May (when having submitted by November):
