WERA FOCAL MEETING--CALL FOR SUBMISSION

WERA FOCAL MEETING

A Tenth Year Anniversary 5-8 August 2019
The University of Tokyo, Japan
Deadline for Submission:
January 31, 2019; 23:59 Tokyo Time (GMT +9)

The World Education Research Association (WERA) invites submissions for papers, symposia, and posters for the WERA Focal Meeting to be held in Tokyo, Japan from 5 to 8 August, 2019. WERA is an association of major national, regional, and specialty education research associations dedicated to sharing scholarship, developing networks, and mutually supporting capacity building. The WERA 2019 Focal Meeting is an integral part of the annual conference of the Japanese Educational Research Association (JERA) and consists of a program of paper, symposia, and poster sessions on topics of world-wide emphases and significance. WERA Focal Meetings are embedded in the conference of a WERA member association.

In general, the WERA Focal Meeting seeks to feature research that includes more than one country or is comparative, cross-cultural, international, or transnational in conceptualization, scope, or design. Paper and poster submissions need to meet these criteria; symposia submissions can include papers from single sites or countries as long as the presentations combined are from different countries and the aims of the symposium are anchored in worldwide or global issues. Duplicate submission through the JERA and WERA online submission systems is not allowed.

Founded in 2009, WERA is celebrating its tenth anniversary at the Focal Meeting in Tokyo. Papers and session submissions are encouraged that aim to synthesize knowledge worldwide over the last decade and anticipate future research trends and directions. Scholarly papers and symposia with that goal in mind will be featured at the 2019 meeting.

Who Should Submit?

Scholars and advanced graduate students worldwide whose research extends beyond a single-country site are encouraged to submit to the WERA Focal Meeting. Papers may be submitted to be presented at paper sessions or poster sessions. Scholars wishing to organize symposia that feature research paper presentations from multiple countries or parts of the world are also encouraged to submit.

Scope of the Focal Meeting

The scope of the Focal Meeting is wide in its reach to include studies across the life span from early learning to workforce and adult education and that take place in formal and informal contexts of education and learning.

The emphasis of the Focal Meeting is on papers, posters, and symposia with a lens that is worldwide in perspective. Otherwise there is no restriction on the education research topics appropriate for consideration, although priority will be given to submissions that focus on research and findings addressed to significant trends, issues, and challenges worldwide.

Guidelines for Submission to WERA Focal Meeting

Paper, poster, and symposia submissions must be submitted through the online portal on the WERA-JERA 2019 conference website at http://wera-tokyo.com.

The deadline to submit is January 31, 2019; 23:59 Tokyo Time (GMT +9).
