Welcome to the International Journal of Social Pedagogy

An international, open-access journal publishing high quality original research papers on social pedagogy.

Social pedagogy has been defined as education in its broadest sense which includes all aspects of social, philosophical, and pedagogical dimensions. Through the journal we seek to make a substantial contribution to the international discourse on social pedagogy, and its evolution in the UK. The journal is an important platform for dialogue that contributes to social pedagogy as an evolving interdisciplinary field, at a practice level and to the body of theory and research knowledge. Drawing on various forms of knowledge production we encourage both rigorous original contributions about theory and research in social pedagogy as well as articles that reflect social pedagogical perspectives in practice settings throughout the UK and globally.

We welcome submissions to the International Journal of Social Pedagogy; we provide a fast, efficient, inclusive, and fully non-commercial, open access publishing process. There is no cost to authors at point of submission or publication and articles are published on this site and accessed via a number of subject specific indexers, repositories, and search databases to maximise readership. Learn more about our publishing process, how to submit and sign up to our Publishing Alerts to keep abreast of our calls for papers and new article releases.
