Educational Research for Social Change is an international peer-reviewed journal established in 2012. The journal received DoHET accreditation in January 2016. The idea of educational research having the potential of being transformative - through its work with communities and through various participatory research approaches - is something that is still very new in many educational research circles. ERSC publishes conceptual papers and empirical research which draw on emancipatory paradigms and participatory methodologies and methods, and which have a change agenda, which is seen as critical in contributing to transformation in education. This journal therefore aims to play a critical role in confirming the importance of educational research as social change, contributing to the theorising thereof, and the dissemination of current research to a broad, cross-disciplinary audience of scholars and practitioners in the field of education.
