Learning Environments Research builds our understanding of pre-primary, primary, high school, college and university, and lifelong learning environments irrespective of subject area. Apart from classroom and school environments, the journal devotes special attention to out-of-school learning environments such as the home, science centers, and television. New learning environments created by information technology are also explored.

This journal interprets "learning environment" as the social, physical, psychological, and pedagogical contexts in which learning occurs and which affect student achievement and attitudes. Original academic studies include theoretical reflections, quantitative and qualitative research, critical and integrative literature reviews and meta-analyses, methodological issues, and development and validation of assessment instruments. In addition, the journal features reviews of books and evaluation instruments.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
