American Educational Research Journal (AERJ)

Publisher: SAGE Publications for the AERA (American Educational Research

The American Educational Research Journal (AERJ) publishes original
empirical and theoretical studies and analyses in education. The editors
seek to publish articles from a wide variety of academic disciplines and
substantive fields; they are looking for clear and significant contributions
to the understanding and/or improvement of educational processes and
outcomes. Manuscripts not appropriate for submission to this journal include
essays, reviews, course evaluations, and brief reports of studies to address
a narrow question.

The AERJ's section on Teaching, Learning, and Human Development publishes
research articles that explore the processes and outcomes of teaching,
learning, and human development at all educational levels and in both formal
and informal settings. This section also welcomes policy research related to
teaching, learning, and learning to teach. It publishes articles that
represent a wide range of academic disciplines and use a variety of research

The AERJ's section on Social and Institutional Analysis publishes scholarly
research that addresses significant political, cultural, social, economic,
and organizational issues in education. It welcomes analyses of the broad
contextual and organizational factors affecting teaching and learning, the
links between those factors and the nature and processes of schooling, and
the ways that such "external" domains are conceptualized in research,
policy, and practice.

The editors invite articles that advance the theoretical understandings of
the social and institutional contexts of education and encompass the diverse
communities of schooling and educational research. They welcome research
across a wide range of methodological paradigms, including ethnographic,
historical, narrative, legal, experimental/quantitative, critical, and
interpretive approaches; they also invite studies that make the nature and
uses of educational research itself a subject of social and cultural
