LSOE Catholic Education Journal Available Online
ByCatholic Education: A Journal of Inquiry and Practice, a Lynch School of Education-based journal dedicated to Catholic elementary, secondary, and higher education, has launched an online, open-access version at www.bc.edu/catholicedjournal.
Journal co-editors said the new format “allows for greater dissemination and availability to practitioners, university faculty, and our international audiences,” and could also enable the use of multi-media applications in journal content. Readers can search and download every article from all 14 volumes of the journal for free by visiting the website, they note. The open access format was a joint effort between the journal’s governing board, Boston College Libraries and the Office of Marketing and Communications.
In addition to the new format, the journal co-editors said Catholic Education would move to a production schedule of two volumes per year, beginning with Volume 15 in September of next year.
“The governing board hopes that these changes will not only enhance the journal’s accessibility, but also its viability as a resource for Catholic educators and educational researchers,” the co-editors said.
