InterActions: UCLA Journal of Education and Information Studies is a
peer-reviewed electronic journal: http://www.interactions.gseis.ucla.edu/ that is committed to the
promotion of scholarly work that examines areas of education and
information studies via interdisciplinary and critical frameworks. A
critical framework is any approach that expands our notion of
traditional analyses of problems and issues. The journal seeks to link diverse theoretical and practical projects, as well as provides a space to record the voices of emerging scholars (graduate students and postdoctoral fellows), activists, and practitioners.
As education and information institutions continue to face challenging times, we seek to promote submissions that engage alternative, liberatory possibilities informed by creative theories, methodologies, practices, and visions. In particular, we encourage submissions that:
Extend conventional areas of study through critical and
interdisciplinary frameworks: These areas include, but are not limited to: bilingual education, affirmative action, special education, standards and testing, teacher education, school violence, higher education, social research methodology, information retrieval, access, systems and institutions, etc
Utilize an interdisciplinary framework: Draw upon traditional fields of study (such as policy, sociology, information-seeking and
retrieval, pedagogy, evaluation, psychological development, etc.) or
provide insight from diverse disciplines (e.g., legal theory, ethnic
studies, women's studies, technology studies, etc.).
Incorporate critical frameworks and address issues of social inequities: These frameworks may include, but are not restricted to, feminism, critical race theory, Marxism, post-colonialism, critical pedagogy, queer studies, disability studies, etc. Whether or not submissions utilize critical frameworks, they should demonstrate innovation and commitment to advancing current analyses and discourses in progressive directions.
Deadlines: For Volume 3, August 25, 2006.
Submission Guidelines: All articles undergo a double-blind
peer-review. Please visit the website for detailed submission
guidelines. Manuscripts that do not abide by the submission guidelines will be returned to the author. Please contact:
