The Oxford Encyclopedia of Educational Psychology

The Oxford Encyclopedia of Educational Psychology

The Oxford Encyclopedia of Educational Psychology will bring together leading scholars from the vast and varied global domain of educational psychology to provide a common language for researchers, practitioners, and students in the field. The Encyclopedia will be the first definitive, theory- and evidence-based reference work on educational psychology and will distinguish itself via its strong international representation. The proposed work would situate educational psychology within the larger context of both psychological and educational research, and the project’s totalizing view will provide new insights that allow educational psychology students and researchers specializing in particular areas to gain a better understanding of the nature and scope of the field as a whole. This print project complements the online program of ORE Education, where content can be updated regularly. All of the articles will also appear online as part of the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Education.
