Call for Papers: Bridging Theory and Practice in Educational Development

The Editorial Board of the Journal of International Cooperation in Education (JICE) invites researchers and practitioners to submit manuscripts for our forthcoming Special Issue titled Bridging Theory and Practices in Educational Development. The Issue (JICE, Vol 25.2) broadly considers policy-research linkages in the process of educational development. Possible topics for the Special Issue may include (but are not limited to) how policy and research are related to each other; how academics, policy officials and/or practitioners may work together to improve the equity and quality of education in the global South; and how research results can be utilised for policy-making and practice. We welcome manuscript submissions not only by academics but also practitioners, especially those who are currently practising educational development.
