Aims and Scope

The Papua New Guinea Journal of Education (PNGJE) is a peer reviewed journal that aims to provide a forum for professional and academic audience of policy makers, planners and implementers, teacher educators, practitioners and researchers in Papua New Guinea and abroad.

The main criterion for publication is relevance to Papua New Guinea, and papers should bring out the potential applications of their findings. Material on other countries will be published provided the direct relevance to Papua New Guinea is established in the text. Book reviews will also be considered for publication.

The PNGJE publishes high quality original articles. All manuscripts submitted must be original and not published elsewhere and at any time during the PNGJE’s review process. All accepted papers will appear online at the discretion of the PNGJE Editorial Board in two publications annually.
