ACCESS: Contemporary Issues in Education has just relaunched in 2020 as an online, green open access journal, published by the Philosophy of Education Society of Australasia (PESA).
The journal was established in 1982 and published continuously since then, with some different emphases and subtitles. It provides an international forum where current educational concerns and trends – theoretical, empirical, and practical – can be expressed and critical discussion promoted.
Call for papers – Special issue – Leadership for Justice.
‘Leadership’ studies have focussed around the relationship between the leaders and the led; but what about the wider implications, the consequences for the not-led? How can leadership become more oriented to wider issues of social justice rather than to the efficacy of their leadership within their own institutions? The current world amply rewards those who can lead their followers, be they in corporations, schools or universities, to success in competitive terms. Can leadership success be evaluated in terms more embedded in notions of ethics, aesthetics, and social justice?
You are invited to submit a paper (up to 6,000 words) or commentary (approximately 2,000 words) on these issues. To indicate your interest, please submit a brief abstract of your paper by June 1, 2021 to email@example.com. Full manuscripts will be due by September 1, 2021.
We look forward to receiving your submission.
