Submit your paper

The Journal of Professional Capital and Community invites submissions on:

  • Individualism and collaboration in teaching
  • The processes involved in building professional cultures and communities
  • Leadership and team building
  • Coaching and mentoring
  • Collective responsibility and evidence-based transparency.

The journal addresses how collaboration evolves over time, how it can become sustainable, what its impact can be on quality of teaching and student outcomes, how it produces and also depends on dynamics of risk and trust, and what relationships it has to other aspects of educational reform and improvement such as school competition, assessment and accountability and curriculum standards.

The journal welcomes and supports contributions from a range of disciplines, and supports a broad spectrum of methodologies including quantitative and qualitative approaches, documentary study, action research and conceptual development.

It is important that before submitting you refer to the author guidelines which can be found here
