Call for Papers: Reading literacy in Nordic 10 year-olds

Reading literacy in Nordic 10 year-olds

We invite proposals for a special issue of Nordic Journal of Literacy Research.
We welcome proposals that contribute to the knowledge base on reading in primary school by utilizing Nordic data from Progress in International Reading Literacy Survey (PIRLS) 2016. Papers could focus on relationships within a single Nordic country or on comparisons between the Nordic countries. Both cross sectional studies (2016) and trend studies (including 2006) are invited.
