  Education in the North

        Education in the North was founded in 1965. The principal aim of the journal, which is published annually, is to provide information, comment and research findings on all aspects of interest to Scottish education, including from an international context, in a way that will have a broad appeal to teachers in primary and secondary schools, to lecturers in further and higher education and to other professionals including community education workers, educational psychologists and educational administrators.  A major theme for the journal is 'impact' and the implications of research for practice.

 SERA's publications include:
