DescriptionAims & Scope
Sisyphus — Journal of Education aims to be a place for debate on political, social, economic, cultural, historical, curricular and organizational aspects of education. It pursues an extensive research agenda, embracing the opening of new conceptual positions and criteria according to present tendencies or challenges within the global educational arena.
The journal publishes papers displaying original researches—theoretical studies and empirical analyses—and expressing a wide variety of methods, in order to encourage the submission of both innovative and provocative work based on different orientations, including political ones. Consequently, it does not stand by any particular paradigm; on the contrary, it seeks to promote the possibility of multiple approaches. The editors will look for articles in a wide range of academic disciplines, searching for both clear and significant contributions to the understanding of educational processes.
Sisyphus — Journal of Education seeks contributions within the framework of two main research lines: Education XXI and Change Forces in Education.
Education XXI addresses the diversification, modernization and improvement of education. It studies the development of educational structures, processes and practices, including the integration and use of digital technologies, oriented towards the promotion of socially relevant learning. Attention is given to two central problems: quality of learning, considering issues related to the acquisition and development of competences and skills; and inclusion, addressing the ongoing engagement with diversity.
Change Forces in Education deals with the issues of coordination, steering and monitoring of change in education systems. Attention is given to two central problems: the professional development in education professions, particularly focusing on the socialization and training processes of teachers and other educators; and the processes and effects of participation and accountability in the governance of education systems, particularly focusing on the construction, implementation and assessment of educational public policies.
Sisyphus accepts papers submitted by researchers, scholars, educational administration professionals, teachers, students, and well-informed observers of the educational field and correlative domains. Additionally, the journal will encourage and accept proposals embodying unconventional elements, such as photographic essays and artistic creations.
Along with the articles, the journal will include other research materials such as case-study reports, experiences and inquiries, conceptual and methodological discussions, on-going research papers and book reviews.
The journal is directed towards an international audience of academics, researchers, students, educators, teachers, politicians and educational administration professionals.
