Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE)provides a forum for the scholarly communication of basic and applied research on learning and development, including analyses from biology, neuroscience, cognitive science, and education.

The journal is part of the effort of the International Mind, Brain, and Education Society to be a scholarly source for the accurate translation of the science of biology, brain, and behavior into applications that will impact education efforts internationally and across ages and contexts. The journal also has a goal of stimulating collaboration across disciplines and between researchers and practitioners with different perspectives informing each other to advance the science of mind, brain and education. Thus, the journal has a goal of supporting the development of a framework for new ideas to advance research efforts at the intersection of biology, brain, cognition, and education, and the practical innovations these research efforts inform. The broad target audience is researchers who wish to report basic, high quality research as well as practice-based evaluation relevant to education.

Aims and Scope

Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) publishes peer-reviewed articles addressing biological, brain, cognitive and behavioral questions that are relevant to the broad field of education. The journal operates through an open submission process. In addition, researchers are encouraged to contact the editorial board with ideas for reviews, commentaries and special issues. Short and full-length empirical reports, reviews and commentaries on specific topics broadly relevant to MBE readership, including to practitioners, will be considered.

MBE has an editorial board of internationally recognized scholars and practitioners from a variety of disciplines. MBE provides a forum for highest quality presentation of basic and applied research on learning and development across the ages, in typically developing and special needs populations, including analyses of biology, neuroscience, cognitive and social-emotional sciences, and education. Research in mind, brain, and education emphasizes the reciprocal relationship in which education informs biological and behavioral and cognitive research as much as these inform educational research and practice. MBE original research articles report novel discoveries from laboratory-based experiments or research in the settings of practice. MBE articles also may consider the biological, cultural and intergenerational factors that influence life-long learning and plasticity.

MBE strives to be a highly respected resource for reporting basic and translational data that provide a framework for developing a critical understanding of advancing educational practices and curricula. The journal is thus a venue for scientifically reliable, educationally relevant research that connects mind, brain and education, catalyzing the kinds of research across disciplines that are essential to promote research-based practices in education.
