The American Educational Research Association publishes five peer-reviewed journals and the peer-reviewed annual Review of Research in Education (RRE), together covering a range of topics in education research. Editors serve fixed terms and report their activities twice a year to the Journal Publications Committee. Journals are currently published on behalf of AERA by Sage Publications both in print and online. AERA members receive Educational Researcher and one other journal of their choice as benefits of membership; members may also subscribe to other AERA journals at a discounted cost. The table below summarizes 2011 publishing activities in AERA for the five open-submission journals.
