General call for papers to the Nordic Journal of Comparative and International Education (NJCIE)



The Nordic Journal of Comparative and International Education (NJCIE) is now in its seventh year of publication. It is uniquely positioned as the Nordic region's only journal within Comparative and International Education. Yet, NJCIE reaches out to a global audience. NJCIE is a Diamond Open Access journal in line with the Science Europe initiative working to strengthen Diamond Open Access in scholarly publishing.

We invite papers that seek to analyze educational discourse, policy, and practice and their implications for teaching and learning, and particularly invite papers investigating topics through an interdisciplinary lens focusing on new insights and fostering critical debate about the role of education in diverse societies. NJCIE is concerned with the interplay of local, national, regional, and global contexts shaping education. The ways in which local understandings can bring to light the trends, effects, and influences that exist in different contexts globally highlight the general understanding of Comparative and International Education in NJCIE.

All papers should include a comparative and/or international dimension. Furthermore, all contributions must engage with wider theories and debates in the field of comparative and international education and include a Nordic and/or global perspective.

We invite Nordic and international contributions in this general call for papers.
