New Structure for WERA’s Annual Volume (Formerly WERA Yearbook)


In consultation with the senior publisher at Routledge who oversees publication of the WERA series, the WERA Yearbook was transitioned to a modified structure, publication schedule, and title for WERA’s annual volume.


The restructured annual volume series:

  • feature an editors' introduction that speaks more explicitly to the links within and across thematic areas in each volume

  • was rebranded (including a new title) to highlight, among other things, that the series showcases a collection of outstanding research by emerging and established scholars whose work reflects a broad and exciting range of international perspectives on education research;

  • moved away from an emphasis on a link between the volume chapters and a particular WERA Focal Meeting, and instead present them as the best of WERA – which includes but is not limited Focal Meeting papers;

  • is published in the fourth quarter of each year (beginning in 2017);

  • took on a new title 'Global Perspectives on Education Research'


To facilitate the transition to WERA’s restructured annual volume, chapters that would have been published in the 2016 and 2017 WERA Yearbooks, was combined into the first volume of the rebranded series. Global Perspectives on Education Research therefore echoes the breadth and scope of education research worldwide. It features the work of established and emerging scholars from a range of universities and research institutions in Africa, Europe, and North America. The book’s ten chapters are organized around four themes: Education Policy, Teaching and Learning, School Context and Student Outcomes, and Assessment and Measurement. Each chapter offers cross-cultural, transnational, or comparative insights on some of the most pressing challenges and promising opportunities for improving education around the world. Across thematic areas, these perspectives shape new ways of understanding context as an influence on, and a framework for, conceptual insights into education policy and practice at the international, national, and local levels. With chapters on topics including the cultural complexities of literacy, the effect of socioeconomic inequality on student learning, and the tension between education for global competitiveness and education for global citizenship as national policy strategies, Global Perspectives on Education Research addresses issues and questions that will interest education researchers, educators, policy makers, and societal leaders worldwide. Click here to purchase a copy of the WERA Annual Volume.
