About 'Directions in Education' Directions in Education provides a fortnightly analysis of the major educational developments and trends, particularly within AusAsia.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
