History of Education Researcher

The History of Education Researcher (previously the History of Education Society Bulletin), edited by Jonathan Doney (University of Exeter) and Rob Freathy (University of Exeter), is a peer refereed journal which publishes shorter articles on the history of education (max. 5,000 words). It is published twice a year in May and November and distributed to all members of History of Education Society (UK) and a range of institutional libraries both in the UK and abroad.

We welcome submissions from new researchers and from established researchers beginning work on new material. Constructive feedback is offered to those approaching publication for the first time. The Researcher includes items on archives and acquisitions in addition to news of the Society, notices of forthcoming events and book reviews.

Papers are accepted on the understanding that authors alone are responsible for the opinions expressed in their papers and for securing permission to reproduce copyright material from other sources where this is necessary. Copyright remains vested in the authors.

Manuscripts should be typed with double spacing and wide margins. Articles should not exceed 5,000 words including references and notes. Footnotes should be presented as a separate list at the end of the article (i.e. as endnotes). Endnotes should be numbered consecutively within the text with superscript numerals, placed outside punctuation. An Abstract of no more than 200 words should also be submitted.
