AERA is pleased to announce that the co-editor team for AERA Open will be extended for three additional years through 2021. The extended term will begin on July 1, 2018 and will include current editor-in-chief Mark Warschauer and co-editor Greg Duncan. Joining Warschauer and Duncan will be Nancy E. Hill, Charles Bigelow Professor of Education at Harvard University. Jacquelynne Eccles will complete her term as co-editor on June 30, 2018.

The extension was appointed in November by 2017–2018 AERA President Deborah Ball upon the recommendation of the AERA Journal Publications Committee.

Under the leadership of the inaugural team of Warschauer, Duncan, and Eccles, AERA Open has flourished since its launch in 2014. Among AERA’s journals, articles in AERA Open have received the highest number of downloads as well as the highest Altmetric scores. The journal currently receives the third-highest number of manuscript submissions among AERA’s journals (after AERJ and ER).

One of the innovative features created by the editors is the special topic collection. Similar to special issues, the goal of the special topics is to solicit and publish high quality education research on important interdisciplinary themes. Since the journal’s launch, the editors have released open calls for ten special topics covering a diverse range of issues.

“I could not be more pleased that this team of highly distinguished scholars will continue for an additional three years,” said AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine. “I know that they will continue to bring the same level of innovation and boundary-crossing that they have showed since the journal launched in 2014.”

AERA Open is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal published by the American Educational Research Association. With an emphasis on rapid review and dissemination, AERA Open aims to advance knowledge related to education and learning through rigorous empirical and theoretical study, conducted in a wide range of academic disciplines. AERA Open publishes studies of education and learning in various contexts, such as early childhood, after-school, primary and secondary, and post-secondary education.
