About the Journal
Focus and Scope
The Multidisciplinary Journal of School Education is an international biannual open access online journal co-edited by the Jesuit University Ignatianum in Krakow and the Abat Oliba CEU University in Barcelona. The main language of the journal is English, and a certain proportion of articles are also published in Spanish.
The journal is directed at a broad range of scholars, such as educationalists, psychologists, philosophers of education and sociologists, and explores various aspects of education at various educational levels.
The thematic scope of the journal is indicated by its title. The multidisciplinary character of the journal resonates well with the needs and expectations of the community of professionals dealing with the development, education and upbringing of individuals. It also stresses the importance of integration, multidirectional communication and interdisciplinary discourse between specialists and experts in Poland and abroad.
The agenda of topics being raised in the journal encourages the adoption of broader perspective on the multifunctionality and multidirectionality of education. It also enhances finding common ground and provides for multidisciplinary cooperation. It stresses an openness to publishing high-level, valuable articles. As the editorial board of the journal we intend to create a platform for presenting both achievements and still unresolved issues within the domain specified by the journal's title.
Leading articles to be presented in the upcoming issues of the journal are closely linked to contemporary trends in social sciences in Poland and abroad.
The mission of the journal is to give the reader an innovative and comprehensive knowledge on various topics referring to the development, upbringing, instruction and culture of children and youths/young people in the time of paradigmatic transformations within pedagogical, philosophical, psychological and sociological contexts. The objective is also to promote creative, critical thinking and epistemic reflection, to present original scientific ideas, and finally, to spread achievements and practical experiences of Polish and international experts within this domain. All of this is aimed to make the journal truly opinion-forming and authoritative in the scientific community.
The reader can rightly expect the journal's content to be credible and reliable as well as actively participating in the process of making education better on various educational planes. Of utmost importance is the promotion and support for international cooperation aiming at making better use of resources and experiences of professionals coming from different countries for a greater effectivness of explorations and initiatives undertaken.
An important aspect of our mission will be fostering the development of young scientists. This will be done through opening the journal for young scientists preparing their theses. We are going to systematically present reports on studies and research being carried out in Poland and abroad.
We strongly believe that the Multidisciplinary Journal of School Education will become a source of information of great scientific importance and didactic value for faculty members and students from Poland and abroad.
