The Journal


The aims and purpose of the new journal is to create international visibility and a stronger scientific profile for the research field of extended education.

The International Journal for Research on Extended Education is published by a group of internationally renowned educational researchers. To ensure a high scientific standard it is subject to a rigorous peer review process and targets primarily the scientific community in this field. Theoretical papers, basic empirical research, and applied research aimed at addressing practical and policy issues are welcome from researchers from the widest range of disciplines including psychology, education, sociology, political science and education economics.

The International Journal for Research on Extended Education has three parts:

  • a main section comprising three or four papers dedicated to differentiated topic areas (main topic),
  • a section consisting of papers on freely chosen topics in the area of extended education and
  • review articles.

IJREE publishes only original papers (For IJREE an original paper is a presentation of new scientific findings or insights which have not been previously published to any substantial extent in print or Internet publications). By submitting a manuscript the author declares that his or her contribution in no way has been or will be published in another journal. IJREE strives for clear and concise language and asks authors to pay attention to the quality of the language of their articles.
