Current Issues in Education

Current Issues in Education (CIE) is an open access peer-reviewed academic education journal sponsored by the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College of Arizona State University. This journal is produced by ASU graduate students and publishes articles on a broad range of education topics that are timely and have relevance in the field of education (pre-K, K-12, and higher education) both nationally and internationally. We seek scholarship that tackles issues facing our field at new levels and in new ways.

We publish articles on topics such as curriculum and instruction, leadership and policy, social and philosophical foundations, psychology, technology, school counseling, applied practice, and research methodology in education.

CIE has three goals with its published research: (1) promote scholarly thought in the field of education, (2) facilitate and heighten dialogues between educators, scholars, officials, and the public, and (3) further connections between research and policy.

Articles are published on a revolving basis within issues that reflect ASU's academic semesters: Spring, Summer, and Fall. Articles from our previous issues may be viewed through our archives. Authors wishing to submit a manuscript for peer review need to register for a journal account and should examine our author guideline requirements. As an open access journal, we allow authors to maintain the copyright to their published work.

EPAA Call for Papers II


EPAA, one of CIE's sister journals, just released a call for papers.

This call for papers will explore how research assessment exercises and ranking regimes are affecting scholarly journals globally. Do scholars seek to become public intellectuals and write for The Public when they must publish in a language unintelligible to their particular publics?  What topics have been lost in the move toward international scholarship? How have library budgets adjusted to the costs of the growing number of commercial journals that are charging ever higher subscription prices?  How has the focus of academic research changed in recent years as a consequence of these trends?
