Language, Culture, and Diversity is inspired by the belief that in a global society all learners bring a wealth of knowledge, experiences, ideologies and identities that enrich our educational communities. This specialty section is firmly rooted in the notion that education can only be excellent if and when all voices are honored and nurtured through inclusive, equitable, and innovative approaches to pedagogy, curriculum, assessment, and policies.Read More
Language, Culture, and Diversity is inspired by the belief that in a global society all learners bring a wealth of knowledge, experiences, ideologies and identities that enrich our educational communities. This specialty section is firmly rooted in the notion that education can only be excellent if and when all voices are honored and nurtured through inclusive, equitable, and innovative approaches to pedagogy, curriculum, assessment, and policies.
We view our work as an opportunity for empowerment by integrating all aspects of the students we teach, including their languages and sociocultural identities across borders. As such, we are interested in contributions that delve into practices, techniques, policies, and research around valuing diversity and supporting, developing, and preparing multilingual and multicultural compasionate leaders for a global society.
We believe in transformative educational methods that recognize, value, and leverage the diverse backgrounds and identities of students. The aim of this section is to further scholarship and inquiry into innovative and research-focused practices that see diversity from a benefits model lens, and endeavor to foster international conversations about access, equity, and success for all.
As we move into the 21st century, the broad field of education is at a crossroad, facing challenges and opportunities to adapt to an increasingly globalized and diverse environment, instructional technology, education policies, new innovations in education, and an increasingly sophisticated understanding of the science of teaching and learning. Indeed, language, culture, and diversity in education is truly a multidisciplinary field, drawing on the social sciences, education, sociology and anthropology, human factors and social psychology. The goal of this section is to leverage and better understand the role of language, culture, and diversity at all levels of education.
We seek to represent all areas of education scholarship and practice. These areas include, but are not limited to:
Indexed in: Scopus, Google Scholar, DOAJ, CrossRef, CLOCKSS, ERIH PLUS
Language, Culture and Diversity welcomes submissions of the following article types: Book Review, Brief Research Report, Conceptual Analysis, Correction, Curriculum, Instruction, and Pedagogy, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Policy and Practice Reviews, Policy Brief, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Systematic Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Language, Culture and Diversity, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Language, Culture and Diversity will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Education.
