Welcoming the London Review of Education to UCL Press and ScienceOpen

Posted on July 21, 2020 by Alison Fox

We are pleased to announce the London Review of Education (LRE) is the latest Institute of Education Press journal to be hosted on ScienceOpen as part of the UCL Press family.

In conjunction with this announcement, we are also delighted to promote the latest issue of LRE, out today! LRE joins the Film Education Journal and the International Journal of Development Education and Global Learning on ScienceOpen. ScienceOpen provides full open access hosting and metadata distribution services for these journals, placing them within the context of over five hundred curated collections and 63 million publication records. There are 2 more education and social science publications still to move, so stay tuned!

Learn about LRE

Covering key themes across the education field and more, LRE is a wide-ranging journal that features significant analyses and research studies that are interdisciplinary and diverse. LRE publishes work pertaining to curriculum, educational improvement, equalities and human rights, institutional effectiveness, and more! LRE particularly strives to feature works that provide helpful connections between research, policy and practice. As an open access journal with no article processing fees, LRE is available to all as a valuable source on education topics. LRE’s integration onto ScienceOpen will further increase the reach of LRE’s content. 


Dive into the new LRE issue!

Issues of LRE often include a special feature, and the following articles are two of five contributions in the 18(2) special feature on artificial intelligence (AI) and the human in education. In ‘Digital literacies’ by Kucirkova and Mackey, the authors observe how personalized books enhanced with AI can affect children and reduce a child’s sense of individual agency. Taking a much wider perspective, Saltman considers how the development of for-profit artificial intelligence (AI) technologies fosters the privatization of public education and erodes the values and practices of democratic education.

Whether or not they have a special feature, all issues of LRE include general articles, and the breadth of subjects covered in 18(2) is typical for the journal. Amongst other issues, the articles investigate:

Publication of "Refuge in a Moving World"

Posted on July 17, 2020 by Alison Fox

We are delighted to announce that 'Refuge in a Moving World - Tracing Refugee and Migrant Journeys Across Disciplines', edited by Refugee Hosts and Southern Responses to Displacement Principal Investigator Prof. Elena Fiddian-Qasmiyeh, has now been published. Click on the image below to access your free PDF copy of the volume.

'Refuge in a Moving World: Tracing Refugee and Migrant Journeys Across Disciplines' is an outcome of the Refuge in a Moving World network, an initiative of the UCL Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS). The volume draws together more than thirty contributions from multiple disciplines and fields of research and practice to discuss different ways of engaging with, and responding to, migration and displacement.

You can access the table of contents here.

The volume combines critical reflections on the complexities of conceptualizing processes and experiences of (forced) migration, with detailed analyses of these experiences in contemporary and historical settings from around the world. Through interdisciplinary approaches and methodologies – including participatory research, poetic and spatial interventions, ethnography, theatre, discourse analysis and visual methods – the volume documents the complexities of refugees’ and migrants’ journeys. This includes a particular focus on how people inhabit and negotiate everyday life in cities, towns, camps and informal settlements across the Middle East and North Africa, Southern and Eastern Africa, and Europe.

A key dynamic documented throughout the book is the multiple ways that responses to displacement are enacted by people with personal or family experiences of (forced) migration. These people appear in many roles: researchers, writers and artists, teachers, solidarians, first responders, NGO practitioners, neighbours and/or friends. Through the application of historically and spatially sensitive, intersectional and interdisciplinary lenses, the book traces the ways that different people – across axes of religion, sexuality, gender and age – experience and respond to their own situations and to those of other people, in the context of diverse power structures and structural inequalities on the local, national and international level.

Ultimately, Refuge in a Moving World argues that working collaboratively through interdisciplinary approaches and methodologies has the potential to develop nuanced understandings of processes of migration and displacement, and, in turn, to encourage more sustainable modes of responding to our moving world.

IJDEGL is an internationally refereed journal, dedicated to publishing educational research and current debates on development education, global learning, global education, and global citizenship.

As an open access journal, IJDEGL promotes inclusive participation in its mission - reinforced by there being no article processing charges, making it accessible for researchers to submit their research.

Subjective Lives and Economic Transformations in Mongolia
Life in the Gap
Rebecca M. Empson

Almost 10 years ago the mineral-rich country of Mongolia experienced very rapid economic growth, fuelled by China’s need for coal and copper. This period of growth is, however, now over. Mongolia is instead facing high levels of public and private debt, conflicts over land and sovereignty, and a changed political climate that threatens its fragile democratic institutions. Subjective Lives and Economic Transformations in Mongolia details this complex story through the intimate lives of five women.

New UCL Press education and social science journals to be hosted on ScienceOpen

Posted on June 22, 2020 by Alison Fox

We’re really pleased to announce that our education and social science journals, previously published by the UCL Institute of Education, are moving onto the ScienceOpen platform.

The new publications to be hosted on ScienceOpen are: the Film Education Journal, the History Education Research Journal, the International Journal of Development Education and Global Learning, the London Review of Education and Research for All. Due to the substantial content for each journal - two with back issues reaching back well over 10 years - their launches on ScienceOpen will be staggered over the forthcoming months.

The first collection that is live on ScienceOpen, from June 23rd, is the Film Education Journal (FEJ) . FEJ is the only publication in the world that is dedicated to showcasing how film studies is being taught by educators. FEJ leads the global conversation around film education and works diligently to encompass the voices from a wide range of people—including policymakers, academics, researchers, cultural agencies, and of course, filmmakers. You can see the first issue of FEJ on ScienceOpen from today, as well as its extensive back issues .

The addition of these 5 journals to ScienceOpen is important for the overall context of research in Education and Social Sciences on the platform.  ScienceOpen will provide full open access hosting and metadata distribution services within the context of an interactive discovery environment of over 63 million article and book records. Each journal will be showcased in its own collection and added to the UCL Press Super Collection.

Lara Speicher, Head of UCL Press:
“We are pleased to add our education journals to the nine UCL Press publications that are already hosted on the ScienceOpen platform. This move enhances the discoverability, accessibility and reach of our journal portfolio, and we’re pleased to further strengthen our relationship with ScienceOpen.”

Stephanie Dawson, CEO of ScienceOpen:
“We are excited to be able to offer our full open access hosting services to these UCL Press journals. With our automated integration with Crossref, ORCID, DOAJ and other services we can help university presses save time and focus on important editorial tasks.”

Michael J. Reiss, UCL Professor of Science Education, Member of UCL Press and Publications Board:
“It is excellent that the content of these five journals, including the majority of their backlist, will now be available through ScienceOpen. This will help to make them much more accessible and therefore more useful to the academic community and beyond.”

The addition of these publications strengthens an extensive partnership between UCL Press and ScienceOpen, which goes back to 2017 and includes a hosting partnership and the launch of a broadly interdisciplinary journal, UCL Open: Environment, that has a unique open peer-review publishing workflow. UCL Press and ScienceOpen’s promotion of open science encourages the academic community to follow their example and shift publishing towards more models.
