Analysis of Academic Journals in Education: A Comparison of Publication Patterns in England and Germany
Ertl, Hubert; Zierer, Klaus; Phillips, David; Tippelt, Rudolf
Research in Comparative and International Education, v8 n1 p1-16 2013
This article outlines some of the findings of a project funded by the German Research Association which conducted an analysis of six leading journals of education in Germany and England. All articles published in these journals between 2001 and 2009 were analysed according to thematic foci, methodological approaches and characteristics of authors. The findings of this analysis demonstrate that there are clear differences and similarities in publication patterns between different journals and countries and that some of these patterns have changed substantially over time. The comparative perspective used for the analysis results in conclusions regarding nation-specific trajectories of the discourse and research in the area of education. (Contains 7 tables, 9 figures and 12 notes.)
