The dissemination of knowledge should be an important outcome of research. IB Research Unit is committed to helping researchers in the field of international education to communicate in a variety of ways.
IB Research Notes
IB Research Notes (IBRN) is a quarterly newsletter published jointly by IB Research Unit and the International Baccalaureate Curriculum and Assessment Centre (IBCA). It is available on the IB's public website (www.ibo.org) and can also be accessed via the online curriculum centre (OCC). The newsletter provides a forum for the discussion of research issues, including research methodology, methods and outcomes, by authors who may or may not have a direct connection with the IB. Each issue features a lead article on a topic related to international educational research, supported by one or two short critical responses to it. This is accompanied by a regular feature that describes an aspect of research conducted by members of IBRU. Each issue also includes listings of recent events and developments in the research field such as conferences, journals and services of interest to the readership.
Journal of Research in International Education (JRIE)
The IB supports the Journal of Research in International Education (JRIE) published by Sage Publications. This is an international, peer-reviewed journal that seeks to advance the understanding and significance of international education. It focuses on the educational implications of the fundamental relationship between human unity and human diversity that inspires “education for international understanding”. The journal encourages a research approach that aims to close the gap between the well-established theory of international education and emergent, diverse practice throughout the world. In this context, international education is concerned with the promotion of education for international understanding and human rights, and may include peace education, global education and intercultural education. The journal is published three times a year. Contents pages, abstracts of articles and subscription details are available from www.sagepub.co.uk.
