Focus and Scope

The International Journal of Research on Service-Learning in Teacher Education (IJRSLTE) is co-sponsored by the International Center for Service-Learning in Teacher Education which is housed at Duke University and the SIG-Service-Learning & Experiential Education of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). As an international journal, the articles provide a forum for exchanging insights throughout the world. The journal publishes manuscripts that advance scholarship on service-learning in teacher education through descriptions of empirical research, synthesis of research, analysis of policy, or discussion of theoretical positions. Although articles do not focus solely on description of a program, practitioner research is featured. The journal also publishes book reviews.

The International Journal of Research on Service-Learning in Teacher Education uses a blind, peer-review process. IJRSLTE provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. Read our Open Access policy for more detailed information.

The International Journal of Research on Service-Learning in Teacher Education

The International Journal of Research on Service-Learning in Teacher Education was titled Journal of Research in Service-Learning and Teacher Education when the SIG-Service-Learning & Experiential Education of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) initiated a journal that would feature research on service-learning in teacher education. The title of the journal changed to reflect the co-sponsorship of the journal when the International Center for Service-Learning in Teacher Education which is housed at Duke University also decided to sponsor the journal.
