Educare is a peer-reviewed journal published regularly at the Faculty of Education and
Society, Malmö University, Sweden since 2005. Educare publishes a wide range of
research in education and educational sciences and has long been considered a research
forum for faculty, practitioners and policy makers in Sweden. The journal strives to be of
relevance to these stakeholders not only through its choice of the published topics, but also
through the clarity of presentation. The journal accepts original submissions in Swedish,
Danish, Norwegian and English. We welcome both experienced and young researchers to
contribute to the journal. All articles are first reviewed by the editor-in-chief or the editorial
board. In the next step, articles are subjected to a double- blind review by two external
reviewers. All submissions are judged on the basis of their relevance from a professional
and educational perspective, theoretical and methodological contribution, critical insights
and rhetorical quality. The journal is currently registered in The Norwegian Register for
Scientific Journals, Series and Publishers as a national peer-reviewed journal within the
field of education and educational research with scientific level 1.

We invite contributions to a special issue of Educare focusing on recent initiatives situated
in The Nordic and Baltic Region but also from all other regions which investigate how
writing and the teaching of writing is embedded and supported in different international,
national, local and institutional models. More specifically, this issue invites contributions
which explore writing support and development of student writing and instructor
competency, and articulate strategies to make this work sustainable. This special issue
welcomes contributions in the form of research articles, position papers and book reviews
that explicitly situate writing issues in particular institutional contexts. The proposed
articles, papers and reviews should not have been published elsewhere. Abstracts are to be
submitted at
