Notes for Contributors
Research in Education is committed to publishing a wide range of papers for a broad national and international readership. It is an interdisciplinary research journal that aims to be as widely accessible and intelligible as possible, without oversimplification. In particular, the journal aims to present empirical and experimental findings, including practitioner research, together with research literature reviews, which address educational problems, change, policy and practice from a variety of social science perspectives.
These should be as concise as clarity permits. They should normally be of between 3,000 and 4,000 words in length. However, consideration will be given to longer articles of special or particular interest.
Tables, graphs, diagrams and illustrations are acceptable when they are integral to a paper.
These should be concise reports or abstracts of on-going, or recently completed, research, of around 6 to 800 words.
The Editors particularly welcome short notices about recently completed research higher degrees. The aim is to inform readers of the extent and nature of research and its findings and to facilitate access.
Preparation of manuscripts
Contributors should pay attention to the conventions of the journal and in particular to the form in which references are given. Manuscripts that do not conform to these requirements will be returned for amendment, or may be rejected.
