About the Journal
The International Journal of Educational Psychology (IJEP) is an Open Access journal which has as its main objective the publication of top research in the area of educational psychology which seeks to be applied in a variety of educational contexts, formal and informal, involving different education levels, individuals and groups of all ages.
The articles published in IJEP deal with problems that are relevant for the international scientific and education communities and their contributions serve as scientific tools to improve educational processes and outcomes. A second objective of IJEP is the publication of theoretical articles that advance the literature in educational psychology, opening new lines of research in the field.
For both types of articles IJEP emphasizes those that deepen in the understanding of the processes, tools, contexts, and outcomes of school and non-school learning. These are works that can address, among others, the analysis of the dynamics of classroom interactions, the relationships between learning and development, the design of effective learning environments, learning processes in non-school contexts (such as the home, the street, after school programs, ICT), discourse use in those contexts, and interactions between learning and identity. These analyses are undertaken taking into account the cultural dimension of teaching and learning processes in societies which are increasingly diverse.
IJEP welcomes papers that make these contributions from a variety of perspectives, such as historico-cultural psychology, cognitive psychology, educational psychology, developmental psychology, cultural studies, etc. The articles can also take on different research methods: quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods.
IJEP is addressed primarily to researchers, but it is also of interest for those in charge of implementing the results of scientific research. IJEP is an electronic journal publishing articles in English and it is four-monthly.
