International Review of Education Editorial Board identifies key areas for future publications
The Editorial Board of the International Review of Education – Journal of Lifelong Learning (IRE) met on 25 November 2019 to discuss the future direction of the journal and to consider prospective areas of focus for articles and special issues. Editorial Board members from across the globe agreed to deepen the focus of the journal on areas such as education for sustainable development, and global citizenship education.
IRE’s Executive Editor, Paul Stanistreet, said: ‘This was an exceptionally positive, constructive and unified meeting of the Editorial Board. The inputs of members will help shape the future development of the journal and will inform the strategy we will now develop for the years ahead.’
‘It was particularly pleasing to find members and our publisher partner, Springer, not only fully committed to the values and mission of the journal, but also prepared to sharpen and deepen the focus of the journal on key emergent areas in lifelong learning.’
Edited by the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning and published by Springer, IRE is the oldest journal of comparative education in the world. It combines a strong commitment to high-quality research with an engagement in policy and practice and a desire to support authors from every part of the world in publishing vital new scholarship on lifelong learning.
The final issue of the current volume of IRE will be published this month.
