We are scientists in the field of adult education based out of different universities. We approach (adult) educational questions and topics from different research perspectives and with different focuses. Our present configuration is open to other interested junior scientists.
Our intention as a publishing editorial collective is therefore to support a form of conflicting exchange, to seek out debates, make them visible, provide them with a forum, question them, and incite them. In this context, it seems important that we take responsibility for striking out in this direction and staying the course. This is where the viewing and assessment of the submitted and requested contributions begins. The features that make up the profile of the journal establish a qualitative framework, which all published contributions must fulfill. Therefore, as an editorial collective, we value a dialogue-rich process in cooperation with the authors. Contributions will be reviewed and fine-tuned in collegial communication.
