The Journal of Moral Education

Peer-reviewed journal that provides a unique interdisciplinary forum for the discussion and analysis of moral education and development throughout the lifespan. The journal encourages cross-disciplinary research and submissions across the human sciences and humanities that use a range of methodological approaches and address aspects of moral reasoning, moral emotions, motivation and moral action in various contexts (e.g., cultural, gender, family, schooling, community, leisure, work) and roles (e.g., parent, teacher, student, civic, professional). The journal encourages proposals for special issues that address a topic relevant to these aims and scope. 

We encourage submissions including but not exclusively related to: Anthropology of morality; Anti-racist education; Character education; Childhood studies; Citizenship and civic education; Cognitive development; Conflict studies; Critical theory; Diversity studies; Emotional development; Epistemology; Ethics;  Family, studies; Gender studies; Interculturalism; International education; Leadership studies; Moral development; Moral psychology; Multiculturalism; Peace studies; Positive youth development; Professional ethics education; Service learning; Social development; Social justice; Socioemotional development; Sociology, History and Politics of moral education; Values education; Youth studies; Wisdom studies.

All research articles published in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by at least two anonymous referees. The journal does not normally publish papers (for example about philosophical, historical or religious themes) that have no educational or developmental component to them.
