The International Journal of Educational Research Open (IJEDRO) is a companion title of the International Journal of Educational Research (IJER). IJEDRO is an open access, peer-reviewed journal which draws contributions from a wide community of international and interdisciplinary researchers across the field of educational research. We seek contributions that present innovative application of theories, conceptual frameworks and research methodologies, and which inform research, policy and practice beyond the context in which the original work is undertaken.
The International Journal of Educational Research Open so so-named to reflect our international facing publication portfolio and readership. Contributions do not need to be comparative (in the sense of comparing aspects of education in different countries or cultures) or report research carried out in just one location or cultural setting. However, contributions to the International Journal of Educational Research Open need to be thought-provoking, contribute to the educational research field, and inspire international, interdisciplinary readership. Therefore, contributions must have the following features:
- Clear communication about the research findings or arguments
- Critical demonstration of how the literature critically relates to the topic researched
- Strong theoretical, conceptual or philosophical framing
- Clearly explained design and analysis, allowing replication of the study in other (international) contexts
- Critical analysis, recommendations and implications for further research, policy and practice in an international context
The journal supports equality, inclusion and diversity in research and education, within our editorial team, and among author and reviewer networks. As part of our commitment to open access and the values of inclusion, the journal encourages, in particular, early career researchers who take a fresh approach to research methodologies to submit their contributions, provided they support the journal's aims and scope.
Note that we accept well-structured conceptual or theoretical manuscripts. This sets IJEDRO slightly apart from IJER as IJER tends to have a empirical expectations. IJEDRO will also accept evidence syntheses, but the research must have taken a systematic approach to the selection and presentation of evidence. Like IJER, we will also take protocols for work that will be undertaken in the future, but where data is yet to be generated. These will normally be protocols for randomised controlled trials or quasi-experimental trials, or for evidence syntheses. We will also look at protocols for qualitative designed work.
