Journal of Professional Capital and Community

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Journal of Professional Capital and Community

From the Emerald website for the journal:

The Journal of Professional Capital and Community is an international, professionally refereed, scholarly journal, reflecting the most important ideas and evidence of the nature and impact of interactions and relationships in the education profession, especially in the school sector.

“For the first time, in one single place of scholarly research and inquiry, this journal brings together the most influential leading thinkers and emerging scholars on professional cultures, communities and collegiality and how they all contribute to or impede the development of the professional capital in schools and school systems that enhances students’ learning, wellbeing, achievement and engagement.

“The journal raises and addresses issues like individualism and collaboration in teaching, the processes involved in building professional cultures and communities, leadership and team building, coaching and mentoring, collective responsibility and evidence-based transparency. The journal addresses how collaboration evolves over time, how it can become sustainable, what its impact can be on quality of teaching and student outcomes, how it produces and also depends on dynamics of risk and trust, and what relationships it has to other aspects of educational reform and improvement such as school competition, assessment and accountability and curriculum standards.

“The Journal of Professional Capital and Community looks at how professional culture and community and the ways to invest in and build professional capital vary across continents, countries and cultures. The journal identifies the positive aspects of professional interactions and relationships but also raises critical questions about how professional culture can be manipulated, how professional collaboration can be restricted and misused, and how collegiality can become constrained or contrived.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2016) to present.

Access Journal of Professional Capital and Community via the Journal Search or from the iDiscover record.
