Journals on the Teaching of Education 

Educational Psychology

Educational Psychologist
From meta-analyses of studies probing the effectiveness of teaching methods to historical examinations of textbook standards, the journal provides insightful explorations of new educational concepts and accepted educational practices. The journal, however, does not publish articles whose primary purpose is to report the methods and results of an empirical study.

Journal of Educational Psychology
Journal of Educational Psychology publishes original, primary psychological research pertaining to education across all ages and educational levels. The journal also occasionally features exceptionally important theoretical and review articles pertinent to educational psychology.

Educational Psychology
This journal provides an international forum for the discussion and rapid dissemination of research findings in psychology relevant to education. The journal places particular emphasis on the publishing of papers reporting applied research based on experimental and behavioral studies. Reviews of relevant areas of literature also appear from time to time. The aim of the journal is to be a primary source for articles dealing with the psychological aspects of education ranging from pre-school to tertiary provision and the education of children with special needs.

Educational Research
American Educational Research Journal
The American Educational Research Journal has as its purpose to carry 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.

Harvard Educational Review
The Harvard Educational Review is a scholarly journal of opinion and research in education. It provides an interdisciplinary forum for discussion and debate about the field's most vital issues. Since its founding in 1930, HER has become one of the most prestigious education journals, with circulation to policymakers, researchers, administrators, and teachers.

Instructional Science
Instructional Science promotes a deeper understanding of the nature, theory, and practice of the instructional process and resultant learning. Published papers represent a variety of perspectives from the learning sciences and cover learning by people of all ages, in all areas of the curriculum, and in informal and formal learning contexts. Emphasizing reports of original empirical research, the journal stands out by providing space for full and detailed reporting of major studies. These include studies addressing learning processes, learning technology, learner characteristics, and learning outcomes.

Journal of Educational Research
The journal is an invaluable resource for teachers, counselors, supervisors, administrators, curriculum planners, and educational researchers as they consider the structure of tomorrow's curricula. Special issues examine major education issues in depth. Topics of recent themes include: Methodology, Motivation, and Literacy.

Review of Educational Research
The Review of Educational Research is a forum for reviews of previously published work in a field that is populated by scholars from diverse traditions. Because of the increasing complexity of issues facing education and the varied perspectives that can be used to examine them, it is important that we develop tools that help scholars, policymakers, and others to make decisions and take action. We believe a review is this kind of a tool.

Leadership and Policy Studies
Adult Education Quarterly
AEQ aims to stimulate a problem-oriented, critical approach to research and practice, with an increasing emphasis on inter-disciplinary and international perspectives. The audience includes researchers, students, and adult and continuing education practitioners of many orientations including teachers, trainers, facilitators, resource persons, organizational developers, community organizers, and policy designers.
