The Australian and International Journal of Rural Education (AIJRE) is a medium for educators and researchers with an interest in the provision of education in rural contexts. The Journal has been publishing papers which cover a wide range of interests and concerns related to rural, remote and distance education since 1991.
Contributions are welcome from both members and non-members of SPERA on any aspect of rural education and from a variety of disciplinary perspectives at any level of education. The focus of the Journal is on addressing issues, challenges, developments and opportunities in rural education globally, and we encourage submissions which, for example:
- Promote the development of education in rural Australia
- Disseminate innovative ideas, actions, programs and policies in rural education
- Link people interested in providing quality learning experiences
- Provide a forum for new ideas and innovations in rural education, and
- Provide a venue for sharing of information on rural education issues and the development of programs
The Australian and International Journal of Rural Education, publishes papers (up to 6000 words) that have not been published elsewhere which may be scholarly accounts of educational research relevant to rural education, research reports, book reviews or feature articles. All submissions are double blind refereed.
AIJRE is a free open-resource journal.
