This paper provides a rationale for undertaking a systematic review of the academic
buoyancy construct which aims to answer four research questions: what is academic
buoyancy?; Can academic buoyancy change?; How is academic buoyancy measured?;
Do academic buoyancy interventions currently exist? To provide a rationale for
undertaking the proposed systematic review this paper will reflect upon the latest
educational policy reforms and recent national mental health statistics for young people
in England to justify that further understanding of the academic buoyancy construct
could prove useful for educational policy and practice.
