Welcome to National Drama’s electronic journal, Drama Research: international journal of drama in education. This international, peer-reviewed publication offers a new and innovative means by which practitioners and researchers in our field may share and disseminate their work. The journal is interested in publishing a broad and international range of research -based and scholarly articles that will have relevance and appeal to those who teach and research across the spectrum of drama in educational settings.
Key to the approach of Drama Research is the recognition that a multi-media, web-based journal can respond to the dynamic, multi-modal nature of drama in ways that a traditional, print-based format cannot. With this in mind, Drama Research actively encourages writers to utilise the potential of electronic publication to illuminate drama practice, philosophy and theory in new and exciting ways. We are, however, happy to receive articles structured in a more conventional format.
The launch of Drama Research coincides with the launch of an updated and redesigned National Drama Website which reflects the association’s ongoing commitment to strengthening understanding of the theory and practice within our field. Drama Research is a subscription publication but National Drama individual members will have free access to all issues as part of their membership package. Join National Drama via the form at the left sidebar or click here.
National Drama does hope that you will wish to subscribe to and write for Drama Research and help to strengthen and widen knowledge, understanding and dialogue about drama in educational settings.
