A Publisher's View

Mark Moreau.The Journal of Professional Capital and Community is a key component in demonstrating the impact of interactions and relationships in the education profession, especially in the school sector and we are honoured to be publishing this vital research.

As an organization which prides itself on publishing research with impact, we are delighted that JPCC truly encapsulates this ethos. Our commitment to JPCC reflects this shared vision that investing in research on the professional capital of the teaching profession will in turn facilitate a significant contribution to society.

Through the development of the journal, we will play a key role in helping to curate, promote and disseminate research on this topic, on an international scale.

JPCC has the potential to offer real change to how professional capital and professional community is perceived and rewarded in educational institutions across the globe. With our international reach, and with support from Boston College and Andy Hargreaves (Editor-in-Chief), we are committed to helping JPCC achieve its goal.

JPCC published its first issue in January 2016. For more information about this journal, please get in touch: sparkinson@emeraldinsight.com
