Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education

Comparative and international studies in education enjoy new popularity. They illuminate the role of education in Development, the effects of globalisation and post-structural thinking on learning for professional and personal lives. Compare publishes such research as it relates to educational development and change in different parts of the world. It seeks analyses of educational discourse, policy and practice across disciplines, and their implications for teaching, learning and management.

The Editors welcome papers which reflect on practice from early childhood to the end of adult life.  All papers should include a comparative and/or international dimension.  We define ‘comparative’ in its widest sense – it does not need to be comparing different countries or contexts, but may be comparing across time, cultures (e.g. insider/outsider perspectives), between different groups or systems (e.g. indigenous and mainstream education) etc. Case studies of under-researched aspects of the field and countries about which little is known are of particular interest. All articles are subject to anonymous reviews to ensure their quality.

Compare publishes abstracts of PhDs that have been examined and passed. Doctoral Supervisors, please do encourage PhD students who have recently completed to send their abstract to This is a good opportunity to get their work known to educational researchers internationally.
