The Journal on Education in Emergencies seeks to publish groundbreaking and outstanding scholarly and practitioner work on education in emergencies (EiE). The Journal invites submissions of papers for its two sections: EiE Research and EiE Field Notes.

  • EiE Research articles are judged on the following criteria: use of an explicit theoretical or conceptual framework; situation of the research within relevant body of literature; originality of the analysis; appropriateness of the research methods (qualitative, quantitative, mixed) and theory; contribution to the advancement of knowledge and literature on EiE; implications for broader educational problems; and logic, clarity and style of expression.
  • EiE Field Notes articles are judged on the following criteria: usefulness of the tool/resource/practice/project/program/policy/initiative/approach for the broader EiE community; contribution to the evidence-base and the advancement of knowledge on EiE; and logic, clarity, and style of expression.

The Journal welcomes EiE manuscripts addressing education at any point along the continuum of prevention, preparedness, response, recovery, and development. Appropriate topics and questions for articles published in the Journal include, for example, those relating to emergency education response in natural disasters, conflict/fragile states and complex emergencies, conflict sensitive education, attacks on education, education for peacebuilding, peace education, conflict mitigation and reduction, education and fragility, resilience, transitions from emergency to recovery/post-conflict to development, and forced migration and education.

Manuscripts linking EiE with thematic issues are also appropriate. These include but are not limited to: gender, inclusive education, human rights, HIV/AIDS, inter-sectoral links (health, nutrition, shelter, water/sanitation), protection, psychosocial support, youth and adolescents, early childhood development, disaster risk reduction, and climate change adaptation.

Other topics may include: challenges and opportunities in designing, implementing, monitoring, and evaluation of EiE practice/project/program/policy/initiative/approach, problems of and benefits in investing in EiE, EiE program administration opportunities and challenges (e.g. staffing, surge capacity), capacity development and collaboration with local populations for education delivery, curricula (revision, renewal, history and identity-issues), development and application of tools and resources on EiE, links between EiE and traditional humanitarian sectors etc. All articles are subject to a double-blind peer review process.
