Abstract

The Australian Journal of Education was established in 1957 under the editorship of Professor Bill Connell. Drawing upon research conducted in Australia and internationally, the AJE aims to inform educational researchers, as well as educators, administrators and policy- makers, about issues of contemporary concern in education. The AJE seeks to publish research studies that contribute to educational knowledge and research methodologies, and that review findings of research studies. Its scope embraces all fields of education and training. In addition to publishing research studies about education, it also publishes articles that address education in relation to other fields. Articles submitted are subject to full peer review by a panel of experts, including members of the Editorial Board of the AJE. The bulk of the articles published in the AJE are single papers, contributed by authors or invited by the Editor. From time to time the journal publishes special issues, consisting of local and international papers focused on a particular topic. The AJE is listed in the Thomson ISI Social Sciences Citation Index and the Education Resources Information Center (ERIC) database. Except for editorials and book reviews, published articles are subject to blind peer-review. Papers must conform to AJE style. In preparing articles, contributors should follow the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.). The Manual provides instructions on referencing—including electronic media, tables, figures, metrification and non-sexist language.
