Knowledge production in Arab countries: The status of educational research

The case of History Education

The Centre for Lebanese Studies is conducting a regional study commissioned by the Arab Educational Information Network (Shamaa) entitled “Knowledge production in Arab countries: the status of educational research.” This project includes conducting descriptive and analytical studies and comparisons of articles published in Arabic educational periodicals, especially in comparison with international periodicals of the same quality.  The project also includes conducting interviews with editorial boards, and workshops with chief editors of some of the Arabic periodicals and board members of international educational journals. The aim of the project is to influence the issues on educational research that appear in Arabic periodicals, and to present ideas and recommendations that help developing publishing in Arabic educational periodicals and improving the quality of educational research in general.
