Call for Papers

Submissions are invited for the latest edition of Hillary Place Papers, the online, peer-reviewed journal of the School of Education at the University of Leeds. We are interested in both research and non-research articles relating to contemporary issues in education, and educational research and scholarship – We also invite the submission of academic book reviews, conference reports and reviews, interviews with scholars in the field of education, and accounts of experience of research and teaching.

Our aim is to provide postgraduate research students at the University of Leeds and elsewhere with the chance to develop their writing and publication skills, to publish and disseminate their work, and to share their research and insights with the educational research community. We particularly encourage submissions of articles co-authored by multiple research students as well as by students with their supervisors.
