Video Journal of Education and Pedagogy

Editor-in-Chief: Michael A. Peters
This is a fully Open Access journal, which means that all articles are freely available online, ensuring maximum, worldwide dissemination of content, in exchange for an Article Publication Charge. For more information visit the Brill Open dedicated webpage.

As the first-ever video journal of education and pedagogy, owned by the Association for Visual Pedagogies Inc (AVP), our aim is to initiate a new movement in education publishing. VJEP integrates visual approaches to educational research and practitioner knowledge concerning learning and teaching in its broadest sense. It facilitates the rapid spread of ideas and open access to video pedagogy demonstrations in an international and comparative context in an ‘author pays’ model that is based on institutional subscriptions. The VJEP provides a platform for cross-disciplinary research and demonstrated pedagogy while providing a ready means to capture and globally share practitioner knowledge. VJEP wants to establish a new frontier in education publishing and scientific communication and to promote the aims of the Association for Visual Pedagogies (AVP) which seeks to privilege all things visual in thought and practice.

In particular, the journal focuses on 3 main areas:

- Educational research at large, in all forms of education and pedagogy, containing a strong video/visual component. The video component must be outstanding either in the methodology, in the way data were collected, or results that are shown. This includes in particular:
o Teacher education
o Classroom teacher and child observation
o Workplace learning
oTechnology and social learning across multi-disciplinary domains of practice
- Visual approaches to educational research
o Research on new visualization methodologies
o Research and case-based studies to facilitate video data collection, dissemination, critical engagement and analysis
o Integrated approaches

- Research in visual and digital humanities, including philosophical reflection on the use of digital and visual resources in the humanities, particularly:
o Philosophical approaches in the study of visuality in education and society
o Other forms of visual pedagogy such as documentary, film and social media
o Cultural analytics, cultural studies and ethnography

VJEP will publish 10 articles per volume per year, including interviews and videos on teaching practice. The papers will be published online only at regular intervals to maintain the journal’s impact and each will have a video component. Manuscripts will be subject to a rigorous anonymous peer review process.

Call for Papers:

VJEP, unlike other journals, publishes video articles which are peer reviewed. VJEP accepts video articles which are submissions where the essence of the article is the video. As with text submissions, case reports are not encouraged unless they are very unusual or timely. Authors are strongly encouraged to include case series information on the video with attention to clinical outcomes. Multimedia as a format to convey other types of information will be considered on a case by case basis.

Requirements for the video portion of a video article are:
• Choose “Video” as the manuscript type.
• The video should not exceed 15 minutes altogether and may comprise smaller sections of approx 5 mins.
• An audio narration in English must accompany the video.
• The maximum size for all files (including videos) in the submission 350 MB. Videos must be in one the following formats: MPEG-1, QuickTime (not mpg4) or Window media video (WMV). The video file must be playable on a Windows-based computer.
• No music sound tracks.
• Avoid "fancy" video transitions.
• Annotation of anatomic structures is encouraged.
• No authored DVDs.
• There should be a “manuscript” submitted with the video that includes a title page, abstract, text as well as references if needed, in the format as indicated below.

Criteria for VJEP Video Uploads
An article consists of written and video components which operate together. Authors should assume that the video component is not intended to be viewed in isolation but is always contextualised within the framework outlined by the written component. The video component of the article does not need to be surfaced as a single clip, but can be broken into two or more clips to be used where needed (e.g. in a sequence dispersed at key points through the written component, or as a grouping or clips, or number of groupings). The video component could serve a number of purposes within the article as a whole. A video component which is divided into a series of clips does not need to use the same techniques for each clip. The following list of purposes is not intended to be exclusive, but are prompts to ensure authors have a clear understanding of the role the video component (or each clip) plays;
- extract (e.g. of raw data for illustration purposes)
- summary (with or without voice-over)
- commentary
- other

Authors should note that for technical reasons VJEP is not able to surface videos in a separate, full screen window. Authors should ensure that their video is viewable and serves its purpose(s) when viewed through a player on the same page as the written component. Authors should note that the editing process may require edits to any part of the article (written and/or video components). Because of global constraints on copyright for audio-visual material, and the inconsistencies in the ways in which copyright law is enforced in different territories, authors need to be rigorous in ensuring that their video does not include audio, visual or audio-visual extracts of copyright material (except where rights have been clearly granted to the authors for this purpose). Note: it is the preference and explicit recommendation of VJEP that authors use Creative Commons licensing: In the uploading process, the authors need to complete a form which includes:

1. confirmation that the checking of copyright has been undertaken (and a reminder that this is the responsibility of the authors), and that authors have the necessary rights to upload (and space to list Creative Common licence)

2. a clear statement on ethics (including that all participants in the video have given their permission for the video to be uploaded to the journal)

3. listing the software used to create and edit the video

4. confirmation that the authors have a capability to edit their video component if asked to by VJEP editors

Special Issue: Ocular(centric?) becomings in dangerous times

Editor: E. Jayne White and Elin Ødegaard

The hegemonic status of vision has been both reinforced and abandoned across various philosophical epochs. Yet no one can deny its omnipresence in a contemporary era that awakens new and previously unthinkable encounters of seeing ourselves and ‘other’. This special issue, emanating from the 2019 AVP Conference, invites contributions that explore the ‘work of the eye’ in contemporary times – its potential, its allure and, importantly, its dangers – in understanding, articulating, enacting and generating a variety of ‘becomings’ for diverse learners. The editor is especially interested in papers that explore spaces previously inaccessible or denied to the eye (or ‘I’ for that matter), as well as those that critique the assertions made on any such basis. Contributions are welcome from those who take a range of methodological, philosophical and/or conceptual ocular (or, conversely, anti-ocular) positions to cross inter-disciplinary territories in their quest for understanding what it means to ‘become’ in the world and how we might see accordingly.

Papers to be submitted to VJEP by 1 September 2019, and will be published as they are accepted throughout the remainder of the year.
