In 2022, the British Journal of Educational Studies celebrates its 70th anniversary.
For the 60th anniversary of the Society for Educational Studies in 2011, the editor and chair of the Society published an anniversary book to celebrate, created some resources, and ran a series of seminars and events in 2012.
As part of the year-long celebration, a timeline of the editorship of the British Journal of Educational Studies and a timeline of the Chair of the Standing Conference on Studies in Education/Society for Educational Studies were created, along with an extended history written by then Chair Professor Jon Davison FSES.
Education Matters draws together a selection of the most influential papers published in the British Journal of Educational Studies by many of the leading scholars in the field over the 60 years of the Journal (1952-2012). This unique collection of seminal articles published since the first issue of the Journal provides students and researchers in education with an informed insight and understanding of the nature the development of the field of Educational Studies in the United Kingdom since the Second World War. It also assesses the position of Educational Studies in 2012 and explores the possibilities for development in coming years.
