Editor: Professor David Halpin
Institute of Education, University of London, UK
Hosted by the University of London's Institute of Education, the London Review of Education, the first edition of which will be published by Taylor & Francis in March 2003, and for which this call for papers is being made, is a new academic journal concerned with the promotion and dissemination of informed analysis of large issues of relevance to education today. While these will include matters of pedagogy, curriculum, structures and modes of delivery, institutional effectiveness and improvement, and access and opportunity, the journal's Editor is also concerned to encourage debate on issues in related fields such as the interfaces between childcare and education, and the role of education in promoting health.
The London Review of Education aims to be one of the most well known and most highly regarded publications of its kind - being a forum to which all those reflecting on the future direction of education will turn for guidance and insight, and one in which academics will want to see their work published in order to exert the maximum influence.
In seeking to promote debate on the major challenges facing education systems throughout the world, the London Review of Education will represent within its volumes scholarly analysis written from a variety of disciplinary perspectives and points of view, including philosophy, history, psychology, sociology, economics, management and comparative studies as applied to education and its related fields.
The London Review of Education will require contributors to write in ways that reach out to a wide audience. The emphasis will be away from the descriptive reporting of empirical research as an end in itself towards the publication of articles that draw on the findings of such investigations in order to illuminate a big issue of the moment and point up potential ways of dealing with it. In this way, the journal will become a vehicle for aiding understanding of current issues in education, if not actually a means for promoting change in its own right.
