The low demonstrable effect of education research done in South Africa in particular, and Africa in general, persists to be a problem in scientific records in the educational sciences. This scholarly collected work addresses this obstacle and focuses on recommendations from scholars in different sectorial categories in the field of education. Scholars from a variety of sub-fields within the educational sciences reflect on this particular matter, revisiting the history of research and research outcomes and offering informed recommendations based on in-depth investigation and analyses of aspects of the various discourses within the relevant sub-fields. The scope of the content of this collected work canters on the issue of the lack of scientific record concerning the scientific raising of the impact of education research. The book aims at making a specific contribution to the educational sciences by stimulating scholarly discussion as to how to increase the recording of the significance of educational research done in Africa, and in South Africa in particular, and to re-direct the research agenda into the direction of making more impact. Impact is conceptualised to mean both scholarly impact (that is being cited and being used as foundation for theory building and for further research) and practical impact (that is improvement of practice, of teaching and learning in education institutions at all levels). The target audience of this book is academic specialists and researchers in all fields of education in Sub-Saharan Africa. The chapters constitute original research, not published elsewhere. The chapters were put through iThenticate. The contents of this document reflect the views of the author, who is responsible for the facts and accuracy of the information.
