International Perspectives on Education and Society

About the series

The mission of the International Perspectives on Education and Society (IPES) book series is to provide evidence and explanations of research and its application in the field of comparative and international education. The series also provides an opportunity for critical analysis of the field itself, which is often neglected in the periodical literature and edited volumes published in the field.

IPES is comprised of an Annual Review of Comparative and International Education (ARCIE) as well as other themed volumes. The annual review volume reviews where scholars and professionals in comparative and international education have been and where they are headed as a field, and offers stimulating observations about where the field could or should be going.

Multi-award winning series

The IPES volume "The Century of Science" has won awards from both AHSE/CIHE for Significant Research on International Higher Education and from the Association of American Publishers for Professional & Scholarly Excellence in Education Theory.

The CIHE Awards Committee said, "The Committee was impressed by the longitudinal scope of the study, the rigorous application of econometric methods, and the attention to both intra-national and cross-national analyzes in the volume. The combination of these elements makes the volume truly innovative, and holds great potential to serve as a model for future research."
