Focus and Scope
The Journal of Montessori Research and Education seeks to publish papers from researchers of any nationality covering important issues regarding, pedagogical, philosophical, and psychological perspectives on Montessori education. The intention is to cover a wide range of relevant topics, like for example: studies on teaching and learning, meaning-making in school, embodied education, school environment, sustainable development, peace education, the rights of the child, gender and research on historical aspects of Montessori education.
Original articles with a theoretical or empirical base are welcome, as are review articles comparing different theories or empirical studies. All content will be peer-reviewed, with very few exceptions. Journal of Montessori Research and Education will in addition to the academic content offer the possibility to publish news items aimed for the members of the MoRE network, letters to the editor and other short communication will be published if and when there is space, this will be the only content that is not peer-reviewed.
The journal is published online as a continuous volume and issue throughout the year. Articles are made available as soon as they are ready to ensure that there are no unnecessary delays in getting content publically available.
Special collections of articles are welcomed and will be published as part of the normal issue, but also within a separate collection page.
