FIRE: Forum for International Research in Education is an international, peer-reviewed publication promoting interdisciplinary scholarship on the use of internationally comparative data for evidence-based and innovative change in educational systems, schools, and classrooms worldwide. FIRE publishes articles, book reviews, research essays and bibliographies three times per year. Some issues are thematic. Except for book reviews and bibliographies, all manuscripts submitted to FIRE are blind peer-reviewed. Theoretical and methodological pluralism is welcomed and encouraged by the journal editor, editorial team, and advisory board.
