When you register for the conference and/or submit an abstract, you are agreeing to our data protection policy.

While we are planning on a face-to-face conference, we recognize that circumstances may prevent or limit in-person gatherings. Regardless, we will have an online component to the conference for those who cannot travel as well as for those who wish to present at a distance. In your proposal, please indicate whether you wish to present in-person, online, or both. If you are presenting online you will need to pre-record the presentation.

Please note publication opportunities, detailed below: 

We publish CARN Bulletins (edited, but not peer-reviewed) after each conference, so you may wish to consider submitting your paper, or other resources/reflections for publication.  We will give further details about this during the conference. 

We have recently introduced a new publishing project, in the form of CARN Praxis. This is a fully open access, peer-reviewed journal, which is targeted in particular towards practitioner-researchers, and those new to publication. It operates in a collaborative and supportive manner, encouraging the use of critical friends and mentors.

Also, our Internationally recognised, Peer-Reviewed Journal, Educational Action Research “publishes accounts of a range of action research and related studies, in education and across the professions, with the aim of making their outcomes widely available and exemplifying the variety of possible styles of reporting. It aims to establish and maintain a review of the literature of action research.”  You may wish to submit papers to this journal for consideration
