The International Journal of Comparative Education and Development


The International Journal of Comparative Education and Development (IJCED), the former official journal of the Comparative Education Society of Hong Kong (CESHK), had in recent years contributed significantly toward the world literature on comparative education, while establishing a sizable knowledge base in its broad scope. The journal will be processed and published under Emerald UK Group from January 2016.

The journal adopts a double-blind, peer-review policy, and contributed by international reviewers. The aim of it is to publish higher quality papers that are of international significance. The journal strives to strengthen connections between research and practice, so enhancing professional development and improving practice within the field of education and human development.
