MACAE, through its journal, MACAE Praxis, seeks to publish articles that will address the needs and interests of those involved in educating adults. It provides our members a venue for publishing their current thinking and research within the adult education field. The ultimate goal is to improve understanding and practice of adult education in all its venues through careful consideration and reflection of timely research and issues. The journal is intended to be a source of articles that are practical, substantial, and scholarly. Articles may be submitted for consideration in the following areas: refereed articles, book and media reviews, issues and trends, Point-Counterpoint essays and best practices.
Articles that relate to theory, research and practice of adult education are welcomed in this journal.
