About

Encounters in Theory and History of Education / Encuentros en Teoría e Historia de la Educación / Rencontres en Théorie et Histoire de l'Éducation is a digital, open access, interdisciplinary publication that aims to generate vigorous scholarly dialogue among educational researchers in the theories and histories of education. It is a tri-lingual journal, publishing in English, Spanish, and French.

Encounters began in 2000 as a journal that attempted to generate a dialogue among educational researchers from Canada, Spain, and Latin America in light of internationalization and economic globalization. Rosa Bruno-Jofré (Queen’s University) and Gonzalo Jover Olmeda (Universidad Complutense de Madrid) were the co-founding editors. The first journal at Queen’s University to be in the Open Journal System (OJS), from the start, Encounters was free to access both in print and online and was sent to Latin American and Spanish libraries for free. The editors’ intention has always been to generate a space for democratic access to knowledge, and to serve as a forum to present and discuss the theory and history of education in a global space.

Encounters in Theory and History of Education is a truly global collaboration. The members of the Editorial Team and Advisory Board contribute to the journal from research institutions in Canada, Chile, France, Spain, and the United States.

The body of reviewers also illustrates the international character of the journal.

The journal has registered readers from more than 30 countries, including scholars and students. Encounters welcomes papers that are methodologically and historiologically reflective or that have a critical perspective, and which could open new lines of thought or ways of approaching knowledge in the field of education. The journal aims at fostering basic methodological and philosophical debates in the field or critical insights on current educational developments. Its diffusion in the Spanish-speaking world allows Spanish-speaking scholars to publish in English.

Encounters in Theory and History of Education (hereafter, Encounters) is committed to its efforts to publish original, high-quality articles, and therefore expects its Editors, reviewers, and authors to comply with high ethical standards, outlined below.

Originality and plagiarism: A submitted manuscript should not be similar to another work published in Encounters or in another journal.

Submissions and Peer Review Process

The primary section of each volume is based on the theme of the issue, for which a call for articles is made. It normally includes theoretical articles and/or essays, and articles of a historical nature using primary sources. Each issue also includes a Special Features section that can include articles on any topic within the remit of the journal. Since 2018, we have also accepted submissions to our Digital Methods and Media section, which aims to include articles or projects that integrate digital media and/or digital methods in work on the theory and history of education.

All submissions to this journal must pass a double-blind peer review process. The selection of reviewers is done by the Co-Editors with participation of the Managing Editor. Two reviewers typically evaluate each submission; a third reviewer may be added in case of disagreement. Reviewers are selected for their extensive expertise and familiarity with the submission’s subject area and research focus, and they are expected to be impartial; they should not have conflicts of interest. Reviewers are also expected to decline participation if they do not feel qualified to appropriately evaluate the submission.

The Open Journal System (OJS) is used to manage the peer review process by facilitating correspondence between the journal and its contributors and ensuring that each article is given a double-blind review. Through OJS, reviewers are provided with anonymized versions of submitted manuscripts. The review process is “double blind”: reviewers are provided with anonymized manuscripts and do not know the identities of authors; authors, in turn, do not know the identities of reviewers. Reviewers complete a form or provide an open-ended evaluation and indicate whether they suggest the article be accepted, revised and resubmitted, or declined.

Once the Editors receive the reviews from the selected content-matter experts, they evaluate them and communicate with the authors the necessary and suggested changes. Authors whose articles do not pass the peer review process are also notified through OJS.
