The Jurnal Ar Ro'is Mandalika (Armada) is a companion title of the Jurnal Ar Ro'is Mandalika (Armada). ARMADA is an open access, peer-reviewed journal which draws contributions from a wide community of international and interdisciplinary researchers across the field of educational research. We seek contributions that present innovative application of theories, conceptual frameworks and research methodologies, and which inform research, policy and practice beyond the context in which the original work is undertaken.

The Jurnal Ar Ro'is Mandalika Open so so-named to reflect our international facing publication portfolio and readership. Contributions do not need to be comparative (in the sense of comparing aspects of education in different countries or cultures) or report research carried out in just one location or cultural setting. However, contributions to the International Journal of Educational Research Open need to be thought-provoking, contribute to the educational research field, and inspire international, interdisciplinary readership. Therefore, contributions must have the following features:

  • Clear communication about the research findings or arguments
  • Critical demonstration of how the literature critically relates to the topic researched
  • Strong theoretical, conceptual or philosophical framing
  • Clearly explained design and analysis, allowing replication of the study in other (international) contexts
  • Critical analysis, recommendations and implications for further research, policy and practice in national and international context

The journal supports equality, inclusion and diversity in research and education, within our editorial team, and among author and reviewer networks. As part of our commitment to open access and the values of inclusion, the journal encourages, in particular, early career researchers who take a fresh approach to research methodologies to submit their contributions, provided they support the journal's aims and scope.

Note that we accept well-structured conceptual or theoretical manuscripts. ARMADA will also accept synthesis of evidence, but research must take a systematic approach to the selection and presentation of evidence. we will also use the protocol for work that will be performed in the future, but the data is not yet generated. This will usually be the protocol for randomized controlled trials or quasi-experimental trials, or for synthesis of evidence. We will also look at the protocol for the work being designed.
