/PRNewswire/ --
An interdisciplinary journal devoted to the publication of international research
on learning within, and through, social practices
Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical
information products and solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of a new
international, quarterly journal,
Learning, Culture and Social Interaction
.
The
journal is affiliated with the European Association for Research on Learning and
Instruction (EARLI) and the International Society for Cultural and Activity
Research (ISCAR) and is now available online.
Learning, Culture and Social Interaction
is devoted to the publication of high-
quality research on learning within, and through, social practices. Its particular
focus is on understanding how learning and development are embedded in
social and cultural activities, and how individuals and collective practices are
transformed through learning. Such understanding requires a careful analysis
of learning in social context, and of the communicative processes involved.
Included in the journal are in-depth studies of interaction in schools (in various
subjects and settings), universities, work-places, voluntary organizations, public
agencies, hospitals, laboratories and other institutional settings, as well as
studies of informal settings such as everyday conversations, play settings,
youth clubs, games and other cultural practices. The journal will also publish
longitudinal studies of learning trajectories and analyses of contexts and
interactional patterns that hinder learning.
Executive Publisher at Elsevier, Ann Corney, said of the journal's launch, "We
are delighted to be working with an excellent and experienced team of editors.
Learning, Culture and Social Interaction's
editorial vision is to create an
international and interdisciplinary forum dedicated to understanding how
learning and development are embedded in social and cultural activities."
The first issue of the
Learning, Culture and Social Interaction
is now freely
available to view online on ScienceDirect. For more information, go to:
