The Clearing House Newsletter was a subscription Newsletter written by and for Waldorf teachers. Over the years, contributions covering a wide range of topics and classroom experience appeared. Early issues served to make visible general news, teaching ideas, newly discovered resources, and the needs of the teachers for translations and source materials. Later issues were generally thematic, addressing one topic or another in the curriculum, or in the practice of Waldorf education. Please bear in mind that this is an archive - and some of the material contained is therefore somewhat dated. However, because we feel that a great deal of it is still useful and should be available to those who are interested, we have elected to publish the contents of each issue in this section of the Online Waldorf Library. The table of contents for each issue can be found below, and clicking on the link will take you to the appropriate Adobe PDF file. Some of these files are pretty large - please be patient.
This periodical serves to bring the work of the Pedagogical Section into closer contact with the international Waldorf school movement. It contains reports of the work and goals of the Pedagogical Section as well as observations made in visiting schools around the world. It is meant to be a place where the questions concerning the work in the Waldorf schools can be posed, and where research projects and their results can be shared, thus strengthening the growing consciousness for the international and cosmopolitan nature of the Waldorf school movement.
Although a list of the contents of all journals published since 1995 are listed, only issues 35 (2009) to 64 (2018) have live links.

The journal RoSE: Research on Steiner Education is an on-line, bilingual (English and German) peer-reviewed academic journal with the purpose of serving the theoretical and practical development of Steiner Waldorf education in ways that are relevant to our contemporary globalising world. RoSE wishes to establish links and dialogues between Steiner education and other alternative as well as mainstream educational discourses and practices. The journal publishes articles based on empirical as well as on theoretical or philosophical research. Reviews of books, as well as of Doctoral and Master’s Theses are also part of the journal. The journal welcomes both critical and appreciative approaches to Steiner education, as long as they adhere to general academic standards. While references to Rudolf Steiner’s works are natural considering the purpose of the journal, we also welcome papers that do not refer to Steiner as long as they are otherwise relevant to the journal’s purpose. Articles that engage in rigorous dialogue between Steiner philosophy/pedagogy and other, particularly contemporary, pedagogical, psychological or philosophical approaches are especially welcome. The journal publishes two issues per year. Submitted papers will be anonymously peer-reviewed by two members of the editorial board, or by academic colleagues especially chosen by these members.
RoSE is founded by a cooperation (co-hosting) between two institutions: The English section is established at the Rudolf Steiner University College, Oslo and the German part is located at the Alanus University of Arts and Social Sciences, Alfter.
The Golden Blade was published from 1949 to 2009.
Anthroposophy springs from the work and teaching of Rudolf Steiner (1861—1925). He described it as "a path of knowledge, to guide the spiritual in the human being to the spiritual in the universe. The aim of this Annual is to bring the outlook of Anthroposophy to bear on questions and activities of evident relevance to the present, in a way which may have lasting value. It was founded in 1949 by Charles Davy and Arnold Freeman, who were its first editors, and
owes much to the twenty-three years of editorial guidance of Adam Bittleston.
