AERA 2022 Annual Meeting Press Policy

Who is eligible for press registration?

Complimentary press registration is provided to qualified working reporters who are employees of, or freelancers on assignment to, locally, nationally or internationally recognized print, broadcast, or online media outlets with a demonstrated history of reporting on relevant education issues.

Public relations professionals at educational institutions and organizations who help disseminate news about education research are also eligible for press registration.

AERA retains the right to evaluate press credentials and grant or deny press registration at its discretion. Receiving press registration one year is not a guarantee of receiving it in future years.

Press access is open to any sessions that are open to all meeting registrants.

How do press register?

Press may register for the 2022 AERA Annual Meeting by completing the online form (available soon). Questions can be directed to

Vaccine and mask policy

Proof of vaccination and masking are required to attend the 2022 AERA Annual Meeting in San Diego. All attendees must be FULLY VACCINATED to attend in person. The masking requirement will remain in place unless guidance from public health authorities leading up to the Annual Meeting recommends that the AERA Council revisit this policy. See proof of vaccination requirements for those with and without U.S. vaccination cards here. Once AERA has confirmed press registration for a reporter with a U.S. vaccination card, we will send the reporter a registration ID # so they can complete the CLEAR process.

Recording policy

Audio and video recording of meeting sessions and events for public dissemination is not permitted.
