New Perspectives on Learning and Instruction

New Perspectives on Learning and Instruction is the international, multidisciplinary book series of EARLI and is published by Routledge.

The aim of the series is to present, to the scholarly community, high quality, theoretically-driven research in the areas of learning and instruction. Books that are published in the series are innovative, attempting to forge new conceptions of the field. Originality, scientific merit, and significance for the field are what guide the series. Both edited collections and sole-authored texts that meet these criteria are considered for publication. The focus is on European work, however, contributions from non-European researchers and non-members of EARLI are invited. The series is designed to appeal to a wide audience of researchers and post-graduate students in education and psychology.


Check out the video below by editors Mien Segers & Isabel Raemdonck, which explains what the EARLI Book Series are al about, and how you can submit.
