Call for papers

From the earliest proposals for education development and reform in Asia-Pacific, researchers and practitioners have relied on international and comparative perspectives to illuminate the field of education. International and comparative education is a field devoted to systematic analysis of the process and effect of world education systems. In this regard the fields makes for an ideal vehicle for interdisciplinary learning and can be used to bring relevance, depth, challenge and breadth to all issues related. The Journal of International and Comparative Education (JICE) focuses on the emerging role of international and comparative education in Asia-Pacific with each issue devoting an article outside the region to provide for a broader comparative perspective of educational issues as relevant in regions outside Asia-Pacific. JICE publishes peer-reviewed research and critical/theoretical reviews of issues in education as presented from a number of locations/ societies/ nations both at international and country levels. Some prominent issues may include, among others, education in the knowledge economy at all scales from global to local; education provision issues such as efficiency, effectiveness, access/equity, gender, culture and religion as well as teaching and learning, broadly defined. JICE provides theoretical and practical importance and relevance to scholars, policy-makers and practitioners alike with interest in the field of international and comparative education.
