AERA Recognizes 2020 Outstanding Reviewers

April 2021

Editors of AERA journals have named 59 scholars as Outstanding Reviewers for 2020, recognizing individuals who rendered outstanding professional service to the journals, to AERA, and to education research. Each year, the editor(s) of each open-submission AERA journal may designate up to 10 individuals who have performed numerous high-quality manuscript reviews for the journal. AERA journals employ rigorous peer review on all submitted manuscripts, and editors rely on expert peer reviewers to identify the highest quality scholarship for publication.

“Perhaps more than any previous year, AERA wishes to thank our reviewers who provided timely and high-quality peer reviews under extremely difficult circumstances in 2020,” said Executive Director Felice J. Levine. “I am so pleased that we were able to honor them during the Journal Publications Committee reception at the 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting.”
