Submission Guidelines

Policy & Practice: A Development Education Review is a biannual, peer reviewed, open access, online journal published by the Centre for Global Education, a non-governmental development organisation based in Belfast. It aims to celebrate and promote good practice in development education and to debate the shifting policy context in which it is delivered. It provides a space for education practitioners to critically reflect on their practice, share new research and engage in debate with their peers. Each issue of the journal features in-depth contributions on key aspects of development education such as pedagogical innovation, research, methodologies, monitoring and evaluation, the production of resources, enhancing organisational capacity and strategic interventions in education policy. Policy & Practice is informed by values such as social justice, equality and interdependence and is based on the Freirean concept of education as an agent of positive social change.  The journal web site receives in excess of 100,000 visitors per annum from the global North and South and successfully combines quality contributions from academia and civil society. 

The journal features in-depth contributions on aspects of development education practice such as methodologies, monitoring and evaluation, resources and training, enhancing organisational capacity, and strategic interventions in education and sectoral practice.

Each issue has a theme which will be addressed by four to six main articles (Focus section). Other regular sections in each journal include shorter articles (Perspectives), discussion features (Viewpoints), and resource reviews (Reviews). In addition to the regular calls for contributors, we invite articles on any topic relating to development education. We ask that you submit a précis of the proposed article to the Editor and it will be given due consideration for publication in a relevant issue.

There are no charges for submission to, publication in, or access to Policy & Practice. Once published, your article will be available for anyone to read or download without charge.
