Review of Educational Research


All manuscripts must be submitted through our online submission platform, ScholarOne. We do not accept submissions via e-mail.

All of our journals abide by a double-blind review policy; once your manuscript is received, it will first be read by the editors to determine whether it merits being sent out for review to a panel of blind reviewers. 

There is no charge for publishing in any of our journals except AERA Open. (AERA Open is our open access journal. Upon acceptance of their manuscripts, authors are charged a one-time fee to cover the cost of publishing).

How can I become a reviewer for AERA’s journals?

In order to become a reviewer, you must create an account through our manuscript submission site, ScholarOne. As part of the registration process, you'll be prompted to choose keywords that relate to your areas of expertise, and manuscripts with corresponding tags will be assigned to you accordingly at the editor(s)’ discretion. Please choose the journal(s) for which you would like to review and create an account in our system. (If you choose to become a reviewer for more than one journal, you will need to create separate accounts. If you choose to review for only one journal now, you may still create additional accounts for other journals in the future.) 

If you are not familiar with our journals, you can read about their contents/scope here. Links to ScholarOne account creation can be accessed here.

Can I access AERA journals in JSTOR?

Journals in JSTOR have "moving walls" that define the time lag between the most current issue published and the content available in JSTOR. AERA journals have a three-year moving wall that shifts each January when new issues are posted.

AERA offers online access to the AERA journal archive through JSTOR for $40/year.

 AERA Online Paper Repository

How can I access past conference papers?

AERA’s Online Paper Repository is an open access clearinghouse, with abstracts, of scientific presentations given at AERA annual meetings since 2010. More than half include full-text papers voluntarily contributed to the repository by annual meeting presenters. AERA encourages all presenters to make their full-text papers available in the repository as a way to distribute their research more broadly. AERA does not publish conference proceedings.


Can I submit a paper I presented at the Annual Meeting to a journal for publication consideration?

Authors retain full copyright of their work when uploading a conference paper to AERA’s Online Repository, so they are free to submit it to journals for publication consideration after the annual meeting. If your paper is accepted for publication, you may add the appropriate doi, ISBN, or page numbers to your entry in AERA's Online Paper Repository for a more accurate citation (if the journal in which your work is published allows you to keep a copy of your paper in our repository). If the journal does not allow you to keep a copy of your paper in our repository after it is published, you may have it removed from the repository by contacting our Meetings department at annualmtg@aera.net.

Can I post a paper I presented at the Annual Meeting to my institution’s repository?

Authors retain full copyright of papers presented at AERA Annual Meetings and/or uploaded to AERA’s Online Repository unless they are published in a book or journal at a later date. If your conference papers have not been published elsewhere, you are free to upload them into your institutional repository. If they have been published since the annual meeting, please contact the publisher for permission.
