Theme 2018: PRODUCTION AND ACCELERATION. Various institutional policies and incentive systems promote greater productivity in educational research, both in terms of volume and speed. What does it mean to think of research as a product? What are the historical trends in the number of educational researchers and the expectations of research productivity? Does producing more research, faster, serve the interests of society? Does this pressure encourage problems like plagiarism, self-plagiarism, and fraud? Do competitive ranking systems, like impact factors, promote research quality? What kind of consequences have expectations of increased productivity in the kind of research, the topics of research, and the methods of research people undertake? How does the increased volume of research affect journals, conferences, and the ability of scholars to keep up with the literature in their fields? What is included in terms of types of publication and language of problematization?

The conference takes place in Leuven, from lunch time Thursday September 13 till lunch Saturday September 15.

Thanks to the support of Stichting Paedagogica Historica, PESGB Netherlands and Flanders branch, and INPE participation is free; to join please contact for further details.
