Education in the North was founded in 1965 and is an international, peer-reviewed open access journal. Published twice a year, the principal aim of the journal is to provide information, comment and research findings on all aspects of interest to education, including from a local, national and international context, in a way that will have a broad appeal to all educators working in formal or informal settings, in compulsory, further, higher or community education and to allied professionals such as psychologists, social workers and librarians.

Each issue of Education in the North has three sections:

  • The Journal section contains academic articles (3,500 to 6,000 words) which are subject to peer review
  • The Features section is made up of shorter items (up to 2,000 words) written in a less formal style
  • This is followed by a Book Review section

The editors welcome contributions in to either Journal or Features sections, and are pleased to receive books for review. Each issue is themed, but submissions outside of the current call will be considered and we encourage contributions from minority languages.

Editors Rachel Shanks and Claire Molloy
