The International Journal of Social Pedagogy seeks to make a substantial contribution to the cross-cultural discourse around social pedagogy. With emphasis on a theory-practice connection, articles in IJSP reflect the cross-cultural perspectives of a wide range of social pedagogical traditions and provide a greater understanding of social pedagogy in ways that are both relevant at a practice level and contribute to the body of theory and research.
The interdisciplinary field of social pedagogy is developing and evolving constantly, seeking strong connection between, and unity of, theory and practice. IJSP considers it critically important to provide a platform for dialogue between theory, research and practice. It therefore encourages both original, peer-reviewed contributions about theory and research in social pedagogy and articles that reflect social pedagogical perspectives in practice settings throughout the United Kingdom and globally.
IJSP welcomes articles that demonstrate innovative contributions which can show the dynamics and the potential of social pedagogy. We therefore accept contributions from researchers, scholars, educators, policy-makers, and practitioners in social pedagogy and related fields. Articles that show scholarly depth, breadth or richness of different aspects of social pedagogy are particularly welcome.
As an open access online-only journal, IJSP is committed to making knowledge freely available and ensuring a globally inclusive discourse around social pedagogy. The journal is currently jointly edited by Prof. Claire Cameron (Centre for Understanding Social Pedagogy, UCL Institute of Education) and Gabriel Eichsteller (ThemPra Social Pedagogy CIC).
