The Journal of Educational Action Research (JEAR) is published once a year in Autumn by the Centre for Educational Research and Development, Paro College of Education, Royal University of Bhutan. The JEAR aspires to develop a strong educational research and scholarship culture, through which a systematic, collaborative and participatory process of inquiry can actively seek to address areas of concerns facing education today. This would not only help provide technical skills and specialized knowledge, but also bring about positive changes within the classroom, schools or the community at large. The Journal welcomes contributions from researchers and scholars who work in the field of action research and related activities in education. The JEAR utilizes a blind peer-review process of its manuscripts and involves both the national and external reviewers.
