Practice and Theory in Systems of Education

Practice and Theory in Systems of Education (P.T.S.E.) is a  freely accessible, full-text, reviewed, international online journal of education. Education is interpreted in a wide manner and includes human development, learning, school education, formal and informal education, tertiary and vocational education, industry training and lifelong learning. We publish articles from teachers, administrators, professors, graduate students, policy-makers, and education specialists from governmental and non-governmental organisations. While a small number of hard copy versions of the journal are produced for archival and administrative purposes, it is intended that the Journal will be accessed in almost all instances in electronic format via the web.
