2021-2022 marked another very successful year of growth for Irish Educational Studies: The Official Journal of the Educational Studies Association of Ireland. Ireland’s flagship educational research journal, the international impact factor for the journal increased from 0.554 to 1.017, exceeding an IF of 1 for the first time in our 41-year history. Also, the readership statistics for the journal increased impressively; overall, in 2021, there was a 137% increase in the full-text downloads for IES. Notable developments in 2021-2022 include two landmark special issues of the journal: a double issue of the journal on COVID-19 and its impact on education internationally (the largest-ever IES imprint: 32 research papers/320 pages); and a first issue of IES on digital education, featuring 18 research articles on designing the future of technology-enhanced learning in education.

In late Summer 2022, a special issue on ‘Educational Disadvantage’ will be published, guest edited by Professor Judith Harford, Professor Áine Hyland and Dr Brian Fleming. In this online session, advice and guidance will be provided on preparing a submission for review and publication in the journal. New initiatives for Studies, including the College of Reviewers, will be outlined, as will emergent developments in academic publishing, e.g. Altmetrics, rapid publication and Open Access. 


Date: Wednesday 20th April, 10-11am
