An essential function of the IPES series is to provide evidence and explanations of the research and its application in the field of comparative and international education. The series also provides an opportunity for critical analysis of the field itself, which is often neglected in the periodical literature and edited voumes published in the field. This annual review series provides a clear sense of where we have been and where we are as a field, and will offer stimulating observations about where we should be going.
The IPES series is a blind peer-reviewed publication. Volume editor reviews all submitted chapter proposals and invite selected authors to submit complete chapter manuscripts for review. Manuscripts are sent for blind peer review to at least three external reviewers selected for their expertise in the relevant area or topic. This process ensures both the relevance and rigor of all chapters in each volume.
Essays representing perspectives of comparative education
The inaugural issue of the Annual Review of Comparative and International Education is a forum for scholars and stakeholders to examine current trends and identify future directions in comparative and international education.
To support this process, comparative education society presidents from around the world were invited to begin the discussion by contributing essays addressing two essential questions as a foundation for this inaugural issue:
How do you define comparative and international education for your community's needs, contexts, and perspectives, and;
What emergent theories, policies, practices, development initiatives, and regional areas of study are being discussed by your society's members?
To orient the discussion, several short essays representing perspectives of comparative education society presidents from China, Brazil, France, Mexico, Spain, and the Arabian Gulf are available for review through the links provided here. The goal of this inaugural issue is to examine current perspectives and future directions for the field using these essays as a context for discussion and analysis.
