Education and Democracy

The educational journal Utbildning & Demokrati

Utbildning & Demokrati is an educational journal whose name is inspired by John Dewey's classic work from 1916, Democracy and Education. It provides a forum for the publication of articles at the interface between philosophy and social science. Our aim is to offer analyses of the political implications - in a broad sense - of education. Like Dewey, we wish to emphasize the significance of communication for the creation of meaning, relating questions of didactics to a view in education as a democratic institution and the role of education as a public space. This journal is aimed at readers with an interest in preschool and school education, teacher education and other forms of higher education, as well as those interested in communication processes in other contexts.

Open Access

We define open access journals as journals that use a funding model that does not charge readers or their institutions for access. From the BOAI definition of "open access" we take the right of users to "read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles" as mandatory for a journal to be included in the directory.

This means that the users can share, copy and distribute the material for non-commercial purposes as long as the author/s are credited appropriately. You may not distribute modified material.
