Washington, DC; Thousand Oaks, California; London, United Kingdom; New Delhi, India; and Singapore (November 13, 2006) – The American Educational Research Association (AERA) and SAGE Publications are pleased to announce their new publishing partnership. On behalf of the AERA, SAGE will begin publishing the following six peer-reviewed journals, effective January 2007:
The AERA seeks to advance education research and to promote the use of high-quality research in educational policy and practice. The Association is the national professional organization for approximately 25,000 members located in colleges and universities; research institutions; and governmental, non-profit, and private sector organizations in the United States and throughout the world. The Association's highly regarded journals significantly enhance SAGE's already renowned list of education and research methods journals. Four of the six AERA titles are currently ranked in the Thomson Scientific (formerly ISI) Journal Citation Reportsâ, with a fifth journal recently accepted for inclusion.
SAGE will make the journals available electronically via SAGE Journals Online (SJO). Each journal web site on SJO will go live upon release of the journal's first 2007 issue (Educational Researcher in January, all others in March). With this improved online availability, users will now be able to access the robust research published in the AERA journals more easily using SJO's advanced features to search, browse, alert and link scholarly articles. Both current and archival content will be available. Librarians will also benefit with access to COUNTER-compliant usage statistics for these journals.
All six titles will be made available through SAGE's award-winning, full-text database, Education: A SAGE Full-Text Collection.
"The Association is pleased to have identified a publishing partner in SAGE that is dedicated to the foundational purposes of a research society and the AERA's commitment to affordable scholarly dissemination of the highest quality," emphasized Executive Director Felice J. Levine. "Our selection of SAGE allows the Association to work in a very collaborative way in publishing on a world-wide scale and thereby to serve our members, the broader education research community, and all who benefit from solid knowledge about education and learning--now and for the future."
"We are delighted to be selected as the publisher of these premier scholarly journals because, like the AERA, SAGE is dedicated to education and to education research. We believe both our missions and the content we publish make this an ideal partnership," stated Alison Mudditt, Executive Vice President of SAGE's Higher Education Group. "We look forward to offering the AERA superior publishing solutions and support, as well as delivering excellent customer service to their members."
