Power and Education is an international peer-reviewed journal promoting critical studies of contemporary educational practice and challenging the complicit practices and assumptions of mainstream educational research.

The journal is committed to providing a distinctive and comprehensive body of knowledge focusing on the relationships between the concepts of power and education in their broadest senses. Innovative and provocative work stimulating debate around the analysis, construction, deployment and discourses of power in educational practice, research and theory is particularly encouraged, as is work exploring forms of presentation and representation.  Contributions from other disciplines that engage with these issues of power and education are also welcome.

Power and Education is aimed at academics, students and practitioners working in the field of education, particularly those who are dissatisfied with mainstream approaches to educational practice, research and theory and conventional forms of presentation and representation. It will appeal to authors seeking a radical and rigorous forum for their work and it publishes:
academic articles (about 7,000 words)
 shorter 'think pieces' (up to 3,500 words)
book reviews (up to 1,000 words)

The journal is associated with the Discourse, Power, Resistance (DPR) annual conference and conference delegates are provided with free online access to that year’s journal and all back numbers.

All articles are:
only available online
 independently peer-reviewed
typeset in familiar printed journal format
published in conventional volume/number/pages sequence

Power and Education (ISSN 1757-7438) is an online-only journal published three times a year, those three issues constituting one volume. Articles are conventionally typeset and appear as familiar journal articles; proofs are sent to the authors as PDF files; the only real difference is that articles are only available for viewing online (and can then also be saved as files and printed).
