International Journal of Development Education and Global Learning is now hosted on ScienceOpen
The International Journal of Development Education and Global Learning (IJDEGL) is an internationally refereed journal by UCL Press that is dedicated to publishing educational research and current debates on development education, global learning, global education, and global citizenship. This journal is the second of five new UCL Press education and social science journals that are joining ScienceOpen. Here, we highlight the addition of IJDEGL to ScienceOpen’s discovery platform alongside today’s publication of its newest issue!
Background of IJDEGL: a fully open access education journal by UCL Press
IJDEGL was created in response to the increased public and educational interest in learning about education practices around the world and has evolved with the field to focus on how approaches to education and pedagogy enhance critical engagement with global issues. As an open access journal, IJDEGL promotes inclusive participation in its mission. Additionally, IJDEGL does not charge article processing fees, making it accessible for researchers to submit to the journal free of charge. These aspects make the journal central to key discussions relating to the international academic community.
It is excellent that the content of these five journals, including the majority of their backlist, will now be available through ScienceOpen. This will help to make them much more accessible and therefore more useful to the academic community and beyond.Michael Reiss, UCL Professor of Science Education, Member of UCL Press and Publications Board
ScienceOpen enhances discovery of IJDEGL content
ScienceOpen will provide full open access hosting and metadata services to IJDEGL placing it within the context of the other 63+ million records in ScienceOpen. Additionally, IJDEGL will be housed in its own collection, allowing the enhanced discovery of its current issue and back contents. The descriptions of the aim, scope, and guidelines for the format of manuscripts on the journal’s collection details page will be beneficial to researchers interested in submitting work to this journal, which is then as simple as clicking on the ‘Submit a Manuscript’ button.

UCL Press and ScienceOpen’s partnership continues to support their mission of promoting open science
