Previously published under the title The Welsh Journal of Education, this internationally-distributed annual journal offers an arena for disseminating education research from national and international perspectives.
Edited by Dr Howard Tanner, Swansea Metropolitan University, and published annually in February, the journal explores a range of controversial arguments relating to education, including areas such as bilingualism, religion in education, well-being and the standards of literacy and numeracy. The contemporary drive for improved education standards, within Wales and internationally, provides a wealth of interdisciplinary research opportunities, and the journal aims to publish research reports relating to these current issues.
The journal also includes a comprehensive reviews section.
