The CJE is a broad-based Journal that, from multiple perspectives, takes up issues that are critical to the education community. The CJE aims to be a forum for authors to share ideas and connect theory to practice in meaningful ways for the education community in Canada and beyond, including scholars, funding agencies, researchers, educators, practitioners, learning communities, policy makers, and the public. The CJE’s goal is to foster understanding and societal betterment through the publication of articles describing research-generated insights and solutions.

  • The CJE welcomes all forms of scholarly writing and all methodologies
  • Articles may address education both in and out of schools, and across the lifespan
  • Articles must be written from an expert’s point of view but framed in language that is accessible to those working from other disciplinary and transdisciplinary perspectives.
