Brock Education: A Journal of Educational Research and Practice is on-line as an Open Access peer-reviewed journal available on the Internet.
Brock Education welcomes papers from authors with an interest in the research and practice of teaching and learning at all levels: elementary and secondary schools: teacher education and teacher development; higher education and adult education; and education in the community or workplace.
The main purpose of the journal is to foster inquiry (in schools, post-secondary institutions and beyond) and promote a deeper understanding of the experiences of educators and learners. The journal is very receptive to practitioner inquiry—e.g., action research, self-study, reflective practice and narrative inquiry—but also accepts a wide-range of research articles that might be of interest to educational researchers and practitioners.
Brock Education is a double-blind peer reviewed journal with an acceptance rate of under 40%. The journal has a short backlog of articles, so most articles are published within a year of submission. Copyright remains with the author (see website for details).
Potential authors are encouraged to review Issues Vol 25, No 1 (2015) – Vol 26, No 1 (2016) to get a sense of the range and quality of articles during the tenure of the current editor.
This open-access journal is a forum for educators and scholars to disseminate their work and make a substantial contribution to the field in Canada and around the world.
Manuscripts should be:
- No more than 6000 words in length, not including references.
- Conform to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th Edition).
- Footnotes are not to be used.
- Tables, figures and pictures are welcome—indeed BEJ now encourages authors to submit articles with visuals, as the cost of producing them is low in an on-line journal.
Typically, the peer review process takes 3-4 months.
