Research articles report the results/insights of original research and evaluate its contribution to the body of knowledge in the field of transformative education research and practice. Such research articles can be structured in many possible ways depending upon the epistemologies that guide the research process. Whilst preparing manuscripts of the research articles, the scholars are encouraged to address the questions such as these: In what ways is the research problem significant? How transparent is the author in applying the proposed methodology? How do findings and conclusions address the ongoing debate or contribute to the development of new perspectives? Full research articles should consist of 6000 to 8000 words, excluding the abstract (between 250 to 300 words), keywords (four to five) and the reference list. Properly linked and well-sized diagrams and pictures may be included.
The journal encourages scholars to submit research notes addressing critical questions, controversies, and debates on methodological and/or conceptual issues; reporting the application of a research method; development and outcomes of a research program; discussing findings and/or impacts of an intervention; delineating a philosophical position, to name but a few. Whilst writing such a research note, it is important that the author should contribute towards advancing the field (or an aspect of it) of transformative education research and practice. The quality of such notes is judged via the clarity of the argument and the appropriate use of rhetorical devices. Full research note contents should be restricted to 4000 to 5000 words, excluding the abstract (between 150 to 200 words), keywords (four to five) and the reference list. Properly linked and well-sized diagrams and pictures may be included.
Different types of books, such as monographs, handbooks, and encyclopedias that address pertinent issues related to transformative education research and practiceare considered as the subject of review. Whilst writing such a review, the contributors are encouraged to respond to the questions, such as these: What is in the book? What are the key contributions to the field? What are its strength and limitations? Full book review contents should be restricted to 2000 to 3000 words, excluding the abstract (between 150 to 200 words), keywords (four to five) and the reference list. Properly linked and well-sized diagrams and pictures may be included.
