British Education Research Journal

The British Educational Research Journal (BERJ) is the flagship journal of BERA and has gone from strength to strength in recent years. Indexed by the Institute of Scientific Information, Philadelphia on the Social Science Citation Index, its impact factor has increased in each successive year. In 2010, BERJ’s Impact Factor was 1.14 and it was ranked 47th of 177 international journals in the area – which is very high for a general education journal.

Although the Journal showcases the very best of British educational research, it publishes articles by, and for, researchers in education throughout the world. The Journal is interdisciplinary in approach, and includes reports of case studies, experiments and surveys, discussions of conceptual and methodological issues and of underlying assumptions in educational research, accounts of research in progress, and book reviews. For more information, visit the publisher’s website.
