Asia Pacific Education Review

The Asia Pacific Education Review (APER) seeks rigorous, high-quality educational research in all education-related fields. 

The journal aims to stimulate research, encourage academic exchange, and enhance the professional development of scholars and other researchers who are interested in educational issues within and beyond the Asia-Pacific region. All manuscripts should explicitly address educational topics using rigorous theoretical and empirical analysis. Papers from diverse disciplinary lenses (e.g., history, philosophy, political economy, psychology, sociology, etc.) are welcome.

Importantly, the journal is not an area studies periodical but an educational research journal with expertise in and beyond the Asia-Pacific. The journal invites outstanding manuscripts using quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods, and philosophical/conceptual approaches in the following areas:

– Adult education and lifelong learning
– Comparative and international education
– Education, culture and society
– Educational policy and social change
– Educational and school psychology
– Educational technology
– Gifted education
– Globalization, internationalization and education
– Higher education
– Innovative educational research methods
– Teacher education
– Educational counselling

APER is a peer reviewed journal produced by the Education Research Institute at Seoul National University since 2000. APER requires all submitted manuscripts to follow the most up-to-date edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA; http://www.apastyle.org/index.aspx), currently the 7th edition.

Higher Education Evaluation and Development

Higher Education Evaluation and Development (HEED) is a scholarly refereed journal that aims to encourage research in higher education evaluation and development, raising standard of evaluation research and sharing the discoveries worldwide. HEED is receptive to critical, phenomenological as well as positivistic studies.

The journal would like to publish more studies that use hermeneutic, semiotic, ethnographic or dialectical research as well as the more traditional studies based on quantitative surveys and in-depth interviews and focus groups. Original papers, research outcomes, case studies, and reviews are published through this platform.

Papers that have empirical research content are particularly welcome. The editor especially wishes to encourage papers on:

  1. Reported research results, especially where these assess the impact of quality assurance systems, procedures and methodologies
  2. Theoretical analyses of evaluation initiatives in higher education
  3. Comparative evaluation and international aspects of practice and higher education policy
  4. Quality assurance and standards monitoring of higher education development
  5. Student engagement and learning outcomes in higher education institutions
  6. Any related to quality assurance, evaluation and higher education policy and development backed up by research evidence
