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:

  • Two regular issues with review articles, a column, panel discussions and book reviews.
  • One themed issue with ca six articles. Recent themed issues were: The social context of young lesbians, homosexuals, bisexuals and transgenders in the Netherlands (2015), 25 years child rights: in retrospect and in the future (2014), Education, philosophy and the public domain (2013), Cultural-ethnical diversity in the society and in education (2012) en Fatherhood, the role of the father in the education of children and the diversity of fatherhood (2011).
