<em>RRE</em> 2019 Editors Appointed, Call for Proposals Announced

Terri Pigott, Ann Marie Ryan, and Charles Tocci

December 2017

Terri Pigott, Ann Marie Ryan, and Charles Tocci have been appointed editors for the 2019 and 2021 editions (Volumes 43 and 45) of Review of Research in Education (RRE). Pigott and Ryan will serve as co-editors and Tocci as associate editor.

Each volume of RRE, published annually, provides an overview and descriptive analysis of a selected topic through critical essays. RRE promotes discussion and controversy about research problems in addition to pulling together and summarizing the work in a particular area of scholarship.

AERA President Deborah Loewenberg Ball appointed the editors at the recommendation of the Journal Publications Committee, concluding a process that began in June 2017 with a call for nominations, followed by candidate applications and committee deliberations.

The topics for the 2019 and 2021 volumes are, respectively, “Changing Teaching Practice in P–20 Educational Settings” and “Quality of Research Evidence in Education: How Do We Know?”

The Call for Proposals for the 2019 volume is available here; proposals are due March 1, 2018 through the RRE online submission platform. Authors invited to prepare manuscripts will need to submit final versions for peer review by July 2, 2018, to allow for any necessary revisions before publication in March 2019.
