Aim & Scope

Educational Sciences: Theory & Practice is an international scientific journal for the publication of research and studies covering all aspects of education and education-related issues.

The aim and scope of the journal is to research topics that are of international and national significance across educational contexts in terms of design, method, and/or findings of the research. The journal’s goal is to aid and facilitate national, international, and interdisciplinary scientific communication, to strengthen the links between scientific research and management policy in Turkey, and to stimulate and enhance the quality of debate. Representing an interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of recent data and expert opinions, it reflects the importance of a comprehensive approach to education in Turkey.

Educational Sciences: Theory & Practice considers several qualities that can increase the chance that we will evaluate a manuscript favorably: (1) The conceptual contribution of the paper. (2) Clear understanding of how literature critically relates to the topic researched. (3) The research presented is programmatic as well as methodologically and conceptually innovative. (4). The methods are sophisticated and include measures in addition to self-reporting. (5) Critical recommendations for further research, policy and practice in national and international contexts.
