Adult Basic Education: An Interdisciplinary Journal for Adult Literacy
Educators is a double-blind, peer review, scholarly journal with a practical
intent devoted to improving the efforts of adult educators working with
low-literate, educationally disadvantaged, and educationally oppressed

The journal seeks to meet the information needs of adult educators in all
types of "literacy" programs--traditional ABE, ESL, and GED programs,
volunteer-based literacy programs, community-based literacy programs,
programs designed for language minority adults, and many other types of
programs. Writers representing a variety of perspectives and disciplines are
encouraged to submit their best work. The journal seeks to publish critical
essays, research of all types, philosophical and theoretical pieces, and
other scholarly work of relevance to those working in adult literacy
education. Manuscripts which uncritically describe existing programs or
techniques which simply recount authors' personal experience or opinions are
not within the scope of this journal, except in rare cases. Although the
journal will be scholarly in emphasis, authors must keep in mind that the
readership for this journal consists largely of practicioners.
Available by subscription only.
