Online Submission
Val Rust, Aminata Soumare, Octavio Pescador, and Megumi Shibuya's article, "Research Strategies in Comparative Education" is a very important piece of scholarship in the field of comparative and international education. Historically, there has been much scholarly debate regarding the theoretical approaches found in the field and, on a smaller scale, discussion on the research methodology. Rust et al., however, was the first study to conduct a content analysis of the comparative and international education literature in order to gain an understanding of the research methodology and strategies, specifically data collection and analysis, employed by researchers in the field. As with Rust et al., this critique was informed by the historical works of George Bereday, Brian Holmes and Harold Noah and Max Eckstein that focused on research methods in comparative and international education.
