Editor’s Monthly Choice

Each month, the Executive Editor selects two recently published articles that exemplify the best qualities of our journal: genuinely international scholarship on the theory and practice of lifelong learning, supporting and promoting the development of sustainable learning societies. These two articles may be downloaded and shared free of charge or subscription during the two months of their promotion. In addition, the two articles chosen for the previous month remain available for one additional month.
