Elsevier Launches New Journal: Learning, Culture and Social Interaction

June 21, 2012

OXFORD, England, June 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

An interdisciplinary journal devoted to the publication of international research on
learning within, and through, social practices

Elsevier [http://www.elsevier.com ], a world-leading provider of scientific, technical
and medical information products and solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of a new
international, quarterly journal, Learning, Culture and Social Interaction. The journal is
affiliated with the European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction (EARLI)
[http://www.earli.org ] and the International Society for Cultural and Activity Research
(ISCAR) [http://www.iscar.org/en/about ] and is now available online.

Learning, Culture and Social Interaction is devoted to the publication of high-quality
research on learning within, and through, social practices. Its particular focus is on
understanding how learning and development are embedded in social and cultural activities,
and how individuals and collective practices are transformed through learning. Such
understanding requires a careful analysis of learning in social context, and of the
communicative processes involved. Included in the journal are in-depth studies of
interaction in schools (in various subjects and settings), universities, work-places,
voluntary organizations, public agencies, hospitals, laboratories and other institutional
settings, as well as studies of informal settings such as everyday conversations, play
settings, youth clubs, games and other cultural practices. The journal will also publish
longitudinal studies of learning trajectories and analyses of contexts and interactional
patterns that hinder learning.

Executive Publisher at Elsevier, Ann Corney, said of the journal’s launch, “We are
delighted to be working with an excellent and experienced team of editors. Learning,
Culture and Social Interaction’s editorial vision is to create an international and
interdisciplinary forum dedicated to understanding how learning and development are
embedded in social and cultural activities.”

The first issue of the Learning, Culture and Social Interaction is now freely
available to view online on ScienceDirect
[http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/22106561/1 ]. For more information, go to:
