Scope and Editorial Policy
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.
