Calls for Papers
Part of our mission is to help researchers and practitioners working in the field of Catholic education share their work with a broader audience through publications. This is why we publish the Education Si Bulletin as well as a Knowledge Notes series (see Other publications). We also coordinate from time to time edited volumes and special issues or symposia for journals. Calls for papers to that effect are provided on this page.
As much as possible, we try to have our publications in open access. This is why we often work with open access journals for our special issues. Research is essential for Catholic schools and universities to fulfill their mission, but it must be accessible! Open access matters especially in low income countries where enrollment in Catholic schools and universities is growing.
This page also features links to selected calls for papers for special issues of journal managed by other teams, as well as calls for papers for workshops or conferences on Catholic education or related topics. We will progressively add more resources as we develop this website. If you have suggestions on resources to add, please contact us.
You will find on this page (1) open calls for papers for special journal issues from our team and other teams; (2) open calls for papers for workshops and conferences on Catholic education or related topics. We will progressively add other resources. To access our previously published work (since 2019), see our Global Reports and Other Publications.
