Inaugural Call for Papers

The Prism Editorial Board would like to call for papers for the inaugural issue of PRISM, based on the theme of ‘Pedagogy, plurality and diversity’; (to be published in May, 2017).

PRISM is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal that seeks to foster innovative approaches to the advancement of critical perspectives spanning all domains of learning and teaching in the broadest possible sense. The Journal’s remit includes the publication of research that highlights, challenges and augments debates and questions in topic areas such as critical, traditional and border pedagogies, alternative approaches to research and practice, government policy, practitioner issues and pedagogic innovation, as well as individual, communal and institutional practices and spaces.

Necessarily eclectic, inherently radical, and unashamedly utopian, the disciplinary scope of PRISM is wide-ranging, encouraging submissions from both within and beyond the institution. PRISM recognises the breadth and scope of learning across diverse locations, involving a range of educators, academics, researchers and thinkers. PRISM supports the development of an expanded field of pedagogy, allowing reflection and critical examination of practice, theory and policy through a spectrum of intra, cross and anti-disciplinary methodologies and theoretical approaches to learning. Whilst PRISM is open to submissions from academics of all levels and experience, we hope to provide a space between established and emergent thinkers from formal and informal, marginal and traditional spaces. Theoretical and methodological pluralism is encouraged.

PRISM adopts a stringent, double-blind, peer-review policy. Working in conjunction with notable experts, the PRISM editorial team seeks to maintain the highest standards of scholarly rigour and academic quality.

Acceptable formats for manuscript submissions to PRISM include:

• Original Research Articles: 5000 to 7000 words
• Academic/Research Reports: 1500 to 3000 words
• Exhibition/Installation Summaries: 3000 to 4000 words
• Book Reviews: 1000-1500 words

The language of the Journal is English. All relevant submissions must be made in English and will be subject to peer-review, according to the Journal’s policies and guidelines. All submissions will be treated equally, regardless of the author’s position, status or background.
