Thresholds in Education

(ISSN 0196-9641)

Aim and Scope: Thresholds in Education, now an open access online scholarly journal, is dedicated to the philosophical exploration of programmatic, pedagogical, and curricular renovation as well as new education inquiries, theories, and viewpoints. Thresholds is a space for authors to engage the philosophical method not only to provide constructive critique of extant policy and practice in education but also to explore fresh ideas and viewpoints that will lay the foundation for innovative and critically oriented schools of the future. Manuscripts submitted for publication to Thresholds undergo rigorous editorial review and at least one blind peer review prior to being accepted for publication.

Beginning in 2015, the Thresholds editorial committee began inviting leading figures in the field of educational scholarship to guest edit annual special topic theme issues of the Thresholds journal. Beginning in 2023, the Thresholds editorial committee began accepting proposals for theme issues of TIE. Guidelines for proposals are available here. TIE (1975-2015) was formerly attached to Northern Illinois University’s Department of Leadership, Education Psychology, and Foundations. TIE is indexed by EBSCOHOST & GALE.
