Practice and Theory in Systems of Education

Practice and Theory in Systems of Education (P.T.S.E.) is a freely accessible, full-text, reviewed, international online journal of education. Education is interpreted in a wide manner and includes human development, learning, school education, formal and informal education, tertiary and vocational education, industry training and lifelong learning. We publish articles from teachers, professors, graduate students, policy-makers, and education specialists from governmental and non-governmental organizations. While a small number of hard copy versions of the journal are produced for archival and administrative purposes, it is intended that the Journal will be accessed in almost all instances in electronic format via the web.

The aim of the PTSE is to publish articles that possess one or more of the following:

  • The presentation of empirically or analytically based investigations of theory, models or conceptual frame works in the field of education.
  • The employment of advanced research methods and measurement procedures which are clearly explained.
  • The presentation of substantive findings which are of importance for policy and practice beyond the country in which the research was conducted.
  • The evaluation of educational policy or programs or the use of information technology of cross- national interest and significance.

Publication Frequency

The journal is published four times per year.

Why subscribe and read
