    Aims and Scope


    The European Journal of Psychology of Education (E.J.P.E.) is published four times a year. Original articles on empirical research, reviews of issues and theoretical discussions on relevant issues are welcome.

    Its content is not confined to the expression of any specific school of thought or perspective; it is open to a wide diversity of areas of research in psychology of education.

    Sensitive to the diversity and complementary character of the work in different countries, especially across Europe, the E.J.P.E. serves as a tool for integration of diversities in the main fields of research and offers an opportunity for exchange and discussion.
