The HKIER is dedicated to knowledge transfer of research ideas and findings in education through nurturing of its academic publications, including journals, occasional papers, academic books, and newsletter.

To promote the exchange of ideas and rational discourse between practising educators and educational researchers from Hong Kong and abroad, the HKIER has published various journals, including Education Journal, Journal of Basic Education, Asian Journal of Counselling, Educational Research Journal, and Journal of Contemporary Chinese Education. After restructuring of journals, only Education Journal, a TSSCI core journal, is now published. Education Journal serves as a bridge for academic exchange between Chinese and international academics and researchers. It publishes articles that attempt to analyze or synthesize educational theories, processes and systems from different viewpoints and approaches. Articles of empirical or theoretical studies on practical experience of educators will also be considered.
