Educational research journals: a partial view from the UK

William Baker, Mark Connolly

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review


This paper is about educational research journals in general and the British Educational Research Journal in particular. In this paper, we discuss some of the aims of educational research journals and several the challenges facing them; we also identify various ways in which journals could consider doing things differently. Two issues are of particular significance. The first is about the accessibility of educational research in an era of rapid technological change and the rise of Open Access publication models. The second is to do with the mission of education journals in relation to long-tanding and pervasive educational inequalities.
