About us

Established in 2004, Voprosy obrazovaniya / Educational Studies Moscow is an academic journal published quarterly by the National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE).

The mission of the journal is to provide a medium for professional discussion on a wide range of educational issues. The journal publishes original research and perceptive essays from Russian and foreign experts on education, development and policy. Voprosy obrazovaniya / Educational Studies Moscow thrives for a multidisciplinary approach, covering traditional pedagogy as well as the sociology, economics and philosophy of education.

Conceptually, the journal consists of several parts:

  • Theoretical materials and empirical research aimed at developing new approaches to understanding the functioning and development of education in modern society;
  • Papers on current projects, practical developments and policy debates in the field of education, written for professionals and the wider public;
  • Statistical data and case studies published as “information for reflection" with minimal accompanying text;
  • Information about and analysis of the latest pedagogical projects;
  • Reviews of articles published in international journals.
Target audience: Leading Russian universities, government bodies responsible for education, councils from federal and regional legislatures, institutions engaged in education research, public organizations and foundations with an interest in education.

All papers submitted for publication in the Voprosy obrazovaniya / Educational Studies Moscow  undergo peer review.

Distributed by subscription and direct order in Russia, CIS countries and abroad.

Publication in the journal is free of charge.

Starting in 2014 all articles are openly accessible. We have also launched an English version of the journal which contains translations of the most relevant Russian research articles as well as original full texts by our international authors.
