• Call for JSSE Special Issue Proposals


    The JSSE is looking for innovative research topics and ground-breaking ideas in the field of social science education, civic education, and economic education. We particularly aim to promote the development of new ideas and areas of research and to contribute to a dynamic scientific agenda setting in the field. This aims to encourage international teams of younger scientists to set topics together and to initiate a conversation about current challenges and issues. We therefore welcome submissions on any topic within the social science education that fit the academic profile of the journal, see here . We are particularly interested in receiving proposals that consider topics from an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective.

  • Change in Citizenship and Social Science Education in (post)War Time


    Editors: Violetta Kopińska (Nicolaus Copernicus University, Toruń, Poland) and Mehmet Açıkalın (Istanbul University - Cerrahpasa, Turkey).

    How does education respond to current, future, and past armed conflicts? This question seems to be of particular relevance to citizenship education and social sciences education, as the concept of a citizen is highly sensitive to such situations.

    The main aim of this special issue is to identify and describe the relationship between war/armed conflict and citizenship education/social science education (formal, informal, non-formal) in a broad perspective.

Educational practices and policies are very different in countries around the world, teaching strategies, syllabuses and lesson plans of civic and citizenship, implicit gender assumptions have to be considered.
