Literacy & Numeracy Studies Journal
Literacy and Numeracy Studies is an international refereed journal, published out of the Centre for Research in Learning and Change, which aims to promote research, scholarship and critical analysis of policy and practice concerning the many and complex ways that adult literacy and numeracy are implicated in adult life. One of the aims of the journal is to extend narrow functional and externally imposed definitions of literacy and numeracy to multiple, open definitions that focus on what people do with their skills, and how they use different texts and modalities in differing contexts.
The possibilities for adult literacy and numeracy learning occur in all environments and in many ways. This means that the editors are pleased to accept papers from a range of theoretical perspectives and research approaches, from researchers and practitioners emerging from differing epistemological positions. Literacy and numeracy are thus understood here as socio-cultural phenomena, the successful acquisition of which moves beyond test and survey results or conventional education and training settings. Relevant terms that may help potential contributors determine if this is the journal for them include adult basic education, adult and community education, workplace language, academic language, online literacies and critical literacy and numeracy.
