About the Journal

With the support of Welsh Government, the Wales Journal of Education has converted to a platinum Open Access journal, free of charge, bilingual and available to read in digital format for anyone, anywhere in the world, with no author-facing charges.

The Wales Journal of Education aims to appeal to researchers, policy-makers and practitioners who share the common goal of achieving excellence in education in Wales. We welcome articles that relate to education in Wales, but also materials of a broader significance, including comparative studies and international contributions and, from 2020, practitioner-led articles.
