The British Journal of Educational Studies is one of the UK's foremost international education journals. It publishes scholarly, research-based articles on education which draw particularly upon historical, philosophical and sociological analysis and sources. There is a special, but by no means exclusive, focus upon policy developments in Britain. The greatest number of submissions are about schools and schooling but the journal also encourages writing that deliberates policy for further, adult, continuing and higher education. The journal also has a comprehensive book review section.
