CfP: Nordic Journal of Educational History (NJEdH)

Johannes Westberg

Nordic Journal of Educational History (NJEdH)

In the past year the NJEdH has published two issues with a total of 9 high quality articles. The journal has also been acknowledged as an approved publication channel for Nordic researchers by some very important authorities. The most important is probably the Norwegian Register for Scientific Journals, Series and Publishers, which is used in order to evaluate and assess research, not only by Norwegian research councils and universities, but also by other Nordic research councils and universities all over Scandinavia. As for quantitative evaluations, an article in the NJEdH is now on par with an article in many of the most important journals in the field, including Paedagocia Historica. Other databases that has listed the NJEdH as an authorized publication channel includes the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science.


Future issues of the NJEdH include the special issue of this spring (vol. 2, no. 1): Educational Finance, which is edited by Associate Professor Johannes Westberg, Uppsala University. Next spring-issue (vol. 3, no. 1) will probably be a special issue from the 6th Nordic Conference on the History of Education (to be held in Uppsala, August 2015). Starting this spring we will also include a review section in the journal. We welcome submissions of books that deal with the history of education, especially in the Nordic context, for review.


Well written manuscripts on the educational past of the Nordic region are always welcome to be submitted on the website (, and the autumn issues of both 2015 and 2016 will be freestanding open issues. Your submission is welcome!
