Dear ISCAR members, We are delighted to announce a new journal for 2012, Learning, Culture and Social Interaction<http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/journaldescription.cws_home/725413/description#description>, affiliated with the European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction<http://www.earli.org/> (EARLI) and the International Society for Cultural and Activity Research (ISCAR)<http://www.iscar.org/en/About_ISCAR>. The new journal is under the co-editorship of Harry Daniels, University of Bath, UK, Anne Edwards, University of Oxford, UK, Neil Mercer, University of Cambridge, UK and Roger Saljo, University of Gothenburg, Sweden, and is now open to receive your submissions. To find out about the goals of the journal and to be one of the first to submit a paper, see below. A note from the Co-Editors "Learning, Culture and Social Interaction (LCSI)<http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/journaldescription.cws_home/725413/description#description> has been created by its editors because we saw that there were limited opportunities for the publication of high quality research on how learning and development are embedded in social and cultural activities, and how individuals and collective practices are transformed through learning. The intended scope of LCSI is well represented by its link with two rather different research associations, EARLI and ISCAR. We hope this journal will serve the rapidly expanding community of scholars who study the processes of learning and teaching from a culturally-orientated perspective." Read the full note today<http://www.elsevierscitech.com/pdfs/LCSI_A_note_from_the_co_editors.pdf>! Rationale and vision Much of the most important learning happens through social interaction. Learning, Culture and Social Interaction (LCSI)<http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/journaldescription.cws_home/725413/description#description> is an international journal devoted to the publication of high-quality research on learning within, and through, social practices. Its particular focus is on understanding how learning and development are embedded in social and cultural activities, and how individuals and collective practices are transformed through learning. Such understanding requires a careful analysis of learning in social context, and of the communicative processes involved. In-depth studies of interaction in schools (in various subjects and settings), universities, work-places, voluntary organizations, public agencies, hospitals, laboratories and other institutional settings will be welcome, as well as studies of informal settings such as everyday conversations, play settings, youth clubs, games and other cultural practices. Longitudinal studies of learning trajectories are relevant as are analyses of contexts and interactional patterns that hinder learning. The important point is that the relationships between cultures, social interaction and learners (and teachers) are in focus.
