Dear colleagues—

Dialogic Pedagogy Journal (DPJ) is happy to announce a call for submission of manuscripts.

DPJ is an international, online, Open Access, free publication, peer-reviewed, academic journal. The targeted audience of the DPJ is educational researchers and innovative educators interested in broadly defined field and practice of Dialogic Pedagogy.

I. Deciding if your work should be published by the Dialogic Pedagogy International Online Journal

The purpose of DPJ is to advance international scholarship and pedagogical practice in the area of dialogic pedagogy and education. The journal is multidisciplinary, international, multi-paradigmatic, and multicultural in scope, accepting manuscripts from any scholars and practitioners interested in the dialogic nature of teaching and learning in formal institutional and informal settings. We encourage any research scholars and practitioners with an interest in dialogue and pedagogy to submit articles for editorial consideration. We loosely define 'dialogic pedagogy' as any scholarship and pedagogical practice, from educational researchers and practitioners, which values and gives priority to 'dialogue' in learning/teaching across a wide range of institutional and non-institutional learning settings". To make a decision about publishing with DPJ, please take your time to evaluate whether or not your manuscript is suitable for the DPJ and the community behind the journal based on the description of the journal’s Focus and Scope. If you are not sure and have questions regarding the journal's aims and scope, we urge you to write to the journal editor with your questions.
