Educational Researcher (ER, begun in 1971; approximately 432 pp./volume year) is published 9 times per year and is received by all members of AERA. It contains scholarly articles that come from a wide range of disciplines and are of general significance to the education research community. The Features section of ER publishes articles that report, synthesize, review, or analyze scholarly inquiry, with emphasis placed on articles that focus on the interpretation, implications, or significance of research work in education. Manuscripts should be of interest to the broad community of education researchers. Manuscripts that speak only to scholars in particular subfields should be submitted to more specialized journals. The Research News and Comment section of ER publishes manuscripts that analyze trends, policies, utilization, and controversies concerning education research. This section also provides an outlet for researchers and others summarizing policies, taking points of view, and suggesting ways to increase support, quality, visibility, and utilization of education research. Research News and Comment does not publish single studies or narrow topics because the ER audience spans a diverse readership representing a broad range of disciplines, methods, and methodologies. The Book Reviews section of ER carries reviews, scholarly essays, and critiques of the written works and other media of those engaged in disciplined inquiry. Reviews are solicited by the editors. Essay reviews critically link several books across a topic; short reviews cover a single book of broad interest for a line of work. Reviews of contemporary films, music, and other media are also appreciated. In addition, the AERA Highlights section of ER provides timely news about the field and about the American Educational Research Association, including information on activities, programs and events, and reports and Council minutes of the Association.
