The purpose of the Education Law and Policy Briefs Journal (ELPBJ) is to help policymakers in advancing their knowledge and understanding of a variety of policies in learning through a focus of high-quality briefs. The briefs may be about existing policies or may inform new policy based on research. Additionally, there may be comparative analyses published related to policy.
The editors welcome contributions from state, national, and international scholars. The criteria for acceptance of briefs are that they are analytical or critical, contribute to policy in the field, and are accessible to state, national, or international policymakers.
The editors welcome submissions on timely issues confronting education at all levels. In contrast to a standard research publication, the peer refereed ELPBJ (ISSN 2473-6570) aims to provide highly accessible and user-friendly information to policymakers, practitioners, interest groups, researchers, and more on a variety of pressing educational issues. As the name implies, the ELPBJ invites rich and coherent overviews/analyses of relevant legal and or policy topics.
