About the Journal

Directions: Journal of Educational Studies was first published in 1978 by the Institute of Education, the University of the South Pacific. It stopped publications at the end of 2008. The School of Education has taken over and housed the journal in 2016. It is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes research articles, essays, critical comments and book reviews of Pacific education.

The journal’s figurehead motif is based on a nineteenth century carving of a ship’s prow from Choiseul, Solomon Islands. It signifies forward movement.
