July 2016

The Review of Educational Research (RER), Educational Researcher (ER), and the American Educational Research Journal (AERJ) all ranked in the top ten for the 2015 Journal Citation Reports (JCR), just released in June. AERA’s journals are included in the Education and Educational Research category, which consists of 230 peer-reviewed scholarly journals from around the world.

JCR ranked journals by their 2015 impact factor, which is the total number of 2015 citations to the journal’s 2013 and 2014 articles, divided by the journal’s total number of articles published those two years.

RER ranked second in the Educational Research Category with an impact factor of 5.235, which is a significant increase from the previous year’s impact factor of 3.897. RER has held a top-three position for seven consecutive years, and its five-year impact factor continues to rank first in the Education Research Category.

AERJ returned to the top ten with a number eight ranking and an impact factor of 2.924, and ER rose to the seventh position with a 3.049 impact factor. Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis also rose in the rankings, moving four points to number 21 with an impact factor of 2.02.

“The JCR rankings underscore the importance of the research published in our suite of journals,” AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine said. “The editors, authors, and reviewers are to be congratulated for their excellent work and high standards.”

Review of Research in Education (RRE) ranked 32 with an impact factor of 1.727. The Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics (JEBS), cosponsored by the American Statistical Association, ranked 10 out of 13 journals on the Mathematical Psychology list. JEBS also placed in the top half of journals on the Education and Educational Research list (87th out of 230), while also turned to and used on the Mathematical Methods in the Social Sciences list (26 out of 49).
