Focus and Scope
Journal of Education Culture and Society is a multi-, inter- and trans-disciplinary Internet journal, which aims at promoting young scholar talents from the field of humanistic and social sciences, especially those functioning within the subfields of pedagogy, psychology, sociology, history of education, philosophy and economy. Articles relating thematically to education and teaching are preferred as the aim is to make educational issues a reason for a wider interdisciplinary scholarly discussion.
Journal of Education Culture and Society is published in June and September. The journal was established to support young and talented students, PhD students and adjuncts who do not find place for themselves within already established disciplines, do not have the possibility of sharing their research results in the currently functioning scientific press and who are not convinced of the value of their scholarly work and wish to subject themselves to evaluation external to their closest work environment.

In the Ethics section, there are articles relating to the law, history, philosophy, and pedagogy and exploring the issues regarding the ethics and organization of education.

Publication ethics and malpractice statement
There is an obligation to indicate all persons responsible for the preparation and publication of texts sent for publication of the following procedure. This includes co-authors and coworkers supporting the process of research for the article with money, knowledge or skills.
The Journal of Education, Culture and Society is published to promote the work of emerging young academics in the field of science, althought our periodical accepts texts written not only by students and doctoral candidates who are embarking on an academic career and who wish to publish their first research in English.
The aim of the periodical is to promote the work of young talented researchers in the humanities, cultural studies, social sciences, law, economics and education and the dialogue of sciences. We hope that this international and interdisciplinary project will engage the enthusiasm of academics in scientific work much more than other existing possibilities for publication.
Each issue is divided into a maximum of 6 sections: ethics, transgressions, experience, dynamics, expression, Polish culture and society/ local cultures and societies. It was very difficult to find appropriate names for the interdisciplinary articles so we have decided to use a specific key for describing phenomena and links, trying to avoid the dependence on disciplinary divisions which are frequently not clear enough when related to the various traditions of making science.
