InterActions: UCLA Journal of Education and Information Studies is a
peer-reviewed electronic journal
[http://www.interactions.gseis.ucla.edu/] that is committed to the
promotion of scholarly work that examines areas of education and
information studies via interdisciplinary and critical frameworks. A
critical framework is any approach that expands our notion of
traditional analyses of problems and issues. The journal seeks to link
diverse theoretical and practical projects, as well as provides a space
to record the voices of emerging scholars (graduate students and
postdoctoral fellows), activists, and practitioners.
As education and information institutions continue to face challenging
times, we seek to promote submissions that engage alternative,
liberatory possibilities informed by creative theories, methodologies,
practices, and visions. In particular, we encourage submissions that:
∑ Extend conventional areas of study through critical and
interdisciplinary frameworks: These areas include, but are not limited
to: bilingual education, affirmative action, special education,
standards and testing, teacher education, school violence, higher
education, social research methodology, information retrieval, access,
systems and institutions, etc.
∑ Utilize an interdisciplinary framework: Draw upon traditional fields
of study (such as policy, sociology, information-seeking and retrieval,
pedagogy, evaluation, psychological development, etc.) or provide
insight from diverse disciplines (e.g., legal theory, ethnic studies,
women's studies, technology studies, etc.).
∑ Incorporate critical frameworks and address issues of social inequities:
These frameworks may include, but are not restricted to, feminism,
critical race theory, Marxism, post-colonialism, critical pedagogy,
queer studies, disability studies, etc. Whether or not submissions
utilize critical frameworks, they should demonstrate innovation and
commitment to advancing current analyses and discourses in progressive
