Berkeley Review of Education (BRE) 

The Berkeley Review of Education (BRE) is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal that engages issues of educational diversity and equity from various cognitive, developmental, sociohistorical, linguistic, and cultural perspectives. Published online and edited by students from the Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley, the BRE encourages submissions on research and theory from senior and emerging scholars, practitioners and policymakers.

The BRE accepts two types of manuscripts, research papers and theoretical essays. Full-length research papers will present original empirical research that can employ a broad range of methods used within educational research and across the humanities, social sciences, and other professions when scholars in those disciplines address educational issues and problems.  Theoretical essays, also full-length, will highlight new directions for educational research or contextualize previous research in light of new theoretical problems.

Critical Focus
Understanding issues of diversity and equity to be central, yet highly contested, themes in educational research, the BRE seeks to foster critical awareness and analysis of these issues in educational processes and practices in and out of school settings. The BRE therefore invites original submissions that highlight the role of language and literacy in the sociocultural and political contexts of education; examine the interplay among cognitive, social, and developmental processes in human knowledge and experience; and limn the role of policy within schools and the broader sociopolitical context.

Interdisciplinary Scope
The BRE seeks to capitalize on the theoretical and empirical contributions of scholars from diverse fields and disciplines. To that end, the BRE encourages submissions that foster critical communication spanning a broad range of disciplines including, but not limited to, anthropology, cultural studies, disability studies, ethnic studies, family studies, gender and sexuality studies, information studies, linguistics, psychology, sociology, and women’s studies. The journal invites submissions that re-imagine what a critical approach to education might look like from within and among the traditional and alternative theoretical paradigms entailed in multiple fields of inquiry.

Submission Guidelines
The BRE is published biannually in March and September. Manuscripts should be submitted online through the “submit article” link on the BRE web site, Authors should consult the BRE Submission Requirements on the website before submitting manuscripts.

Queries may be addressed to the editor: 

All papers are subject to a double-blind peer review process, and authors will be notified about their submissions in a timely manner. Authors retain the copyright to the articles they publish in the journal. However, the BRE does not publish material that has been previously published and does not accept papers that have been simultaneously submitted elsewhere for publication (seeBRE Policies []).
