New home and new issue for the International Journal of Development Education and Global Learning
The International Journal of Development Education and Global Learning (IJDEGL) is the second journal, following on from Film Education Journal, to move from the Institute of Education Press to UCL Press. As with all the UCL Press journals, it will be hosted on the ScienceOpen platform.
ScienceOpen will provide full open access hosting and metadata services to IJDEGL placing it within the context of the other 63+ million records on the platform. Additionally, IJDEGL will be housed in its own collection, allowing the enhanced discovery of its current issue and all its back issues. The latest issue comprises diverse perspectives on the current dilemmas educators are facing throughout the world with respect to global learning and global citizenship education. For a detailed synopsis, read the Editorial: “Challenges and tensions in global learning and global citizenship education” by Clare Bentall. Or you can directly explore all the latest articles here.
IJDEGL is an internationally refereed journal, dedicated to publishing educational research and current debates on development education, global learning, global education, and global citizenship. The journal was created in response to the increased public and educational interest in learning about education practices around the world and has evolved with the field to focus on how approaches to education and pedagogy enhance critical engagement with global issues. 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.
There are three more education and social science journals due to move to UCL Press and ScienceOpen by the end of 2020; London Review of Education, Research for All and the History Education Research Journal.
UCL Professor of Science Education, Member of UCL Press and Publications Board, Michael Reiss:
“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.”
