Aims & Scope

The peer-reviewed academic journal Pedagogiek (Pedagogy) aims to stimulate and support the scholarly discourse on child rearing, education and training within the Dutch language area (The Netherlands and the Flemish region). Pedagogiek strives to contribute to the scholarly debate, but also desires to boost the public debate on the subject of child rearing, education and training. Therefore, contributions will be judged explicitly on both their scholarly merit and their social relevance. Pedagogiek offers:

  • scholarly articles reporting on empirical, theoretical and historical research in the field of child rearing, education and training, and review studies in the same field;
  • opinion pieces on a scholarly level (panel discussions);
  • book reviews.

The journal Pedagogiek publishes three issues a year:

  • One regular issue with review articles, a column, panel discussions and book reviews.
  • Two themed issues with ca six articles. Recent themed issues were: Welbevinden van homoseksuele vaders met een kind via draagmoederschap (2018), Naar een juridische verankering van meerouderschap en meeroudergezag? (2018), Opvoednetwerken van migranten (2017) Het evidence-beest en de normativiteit van opvoeding  (2017).
