We are very pleased to announce the launch of the first specialty sections of Frontiers in Education, a new peer-reviewed, open-access journal:
- Digital Education (led by Chief Editor Prof. Clifford A. Shaffer);
- Educational Psychology (led by Chief Editor Prof. Douglas Kauffman);
- Leadership in Education (led by Chief Editor Prof. Margaret Grogan);
- Public Health Education and Promotion (led by Chief Editors Prof. Connie J. Evashwick, Prof. Marcia G. Ory, and Prof. Matthew Lee Smith); and
- Special Educational Needs (led by Chief Editor Prof. Geoff Lindsay).
One of the first social-sciences journals of the “Frontiers in” series, Frontiers in Education will foster cross-disciplinary work as well as fairness, transparency, and objectivity in the review process (see here for more details on the Frontiers publishing model and peer-review process). Further specialty sections will be added as the journal continues to develop, some of which are already under discussion and include:
- Assessment, Testing and Applied Measurement;
- Continuing Education;
- Education Policy;
- Language and Literacy Education; and
- Teacher Education.
The launch of a new journal is always an exciting venture, and we would be happy to hear your thoughts or answer any questions you may have.
Journal Manager: Yaelle Bochatay

Founded in 2007, Frontiers provides an ecosystem of tools to generate and disseminate knowledge as widely as possible through an interdisciplinary, community-based publishing platform. We believe that everybody undertaking high-quality research should have the opportunity to contribute to and be evaluated by the scholarly community, and we now have journals in about 35 disciplines, some of which have rapidly risen to become the most cited open-access journals in their fields.
