The journal publishes a broad and international range of research-based and scholarly articles that have relevance and appeal to those who teach and research across the spectrum of drama in educational settings. Drama Research welcomes papers presented in a conventional format appropriate for a traditional print-based publication but also actively encourages authors to take advantage of the exciting and innovative opportunities afforded them by publishing their work through the medium of a website.
