International Perspectives on Education and Society provides a unique synthesis of the principal developments in and contributions to the field of comparative and international education. Each volume offers an overview and critical examination of the current topics in the field, and includes state-of-the-field reviews, theory-driven syntheses of current scholarship, reports of new empirical research, and critical discussions of major topics.
The IPES series is a blind peer-reviewed publication. Editors review all submitted chapter proposals and invite selected authors to submit complete chapter manuscripts for review. Manuscripts are sent for blind peer review to at least three external reviewers selected for their expertise in the relevant area or topic. This process ensures both the relevance and rigor of all chapters in each volume.
An essential function of the IPES series is to provide help in making sense of the research and its application coming out of the field. The series also provides an opportunity for critical analysis of the field itself as well, which is often neglected in the periodical literature in the field. This annual review series provides a clear sense of where we have been and where we are as a field, and will offer stimulating observations about where we should be going.
The inaugural issue of the Annual Review of Comparative and International Education is a forum for scholars and stakeholders to examine current trends and identify future directions in comparative and international education.
To support this process, comparative education society presidents from around the world were invited to begin the discussion by contributing essays addressing two essential questions as a foundation for this inaugural issue:
To orient the discussion, several short essays representing perspectives of comparative education society presidents from China, Brazil, France, Mexico, Spain, and the Arabian Gulf are available for review through the links provided here. The goal of this inaugural issue is to examine current perspectives and future directions for the field using these essays as a context for discussion and analysis.
IPES’s audience is comprised of scholars, educators, professionals and students working in or with education around the world. All are encouraged to share their experiences and scholarship with the international audience this volume series attracts. Contributors to past volumes have been from every region of the world and affiliated with universities, schools, development organizations and policy institutes among others.
The series is comprised of themed volumes as well as an annual review of the field. This is the only series dedicated to the annual synthesis and review of education from comparative and international perspectives.
