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.

Editorial: Welcome to Issue 18.3

 

Dear readers, authors, and contributors to Current Issues in Education,

 

Welcome to Issue 18.3 of CIE, our 2015 fall edition. Since our summer issue, we have modernized our layout, which included a change from two columns per page to one column per page, a revised first page which now also features an APA citation of the article and the date on which the manuscrip was accepted, and minor modifications concerning design and organization. All of these changes were implemented with the goal of improving the CIE reading experience, particularly ease of access to various types of useful information concerning our publications.

Once again, we received a large number of submissions to Current Issues in Education. The CIE editorial team has grown again and is working hard to move submissions through our review system, but we also have to announce that CIE will not accept submissions for the time being as we are preparing for further organizational changes that will improve the inner workings of the journal. In the meantime, issues will continue to be published with those manuscrips currently under review and awaiting review that will be accepted for publication.

Current Issues in Education is also scheduled for an update of our Open Journal System (OJS) software that is provided by the Public Knowledge Project so there will be changes regarding our website this fall. Our archives are still being updated so please contact us at cie@asu.edu if you cannot find an article published before 2010 and we can accelerate the process of making the article in quesion available to you and all our readers.

While we will provide updates here concerning both availability of archives and submission of new manuscripts, please also utilize our social media to stay up-to-date with CIE:

Editorial: Welcome to Issue 18.2

 

Dear readers, authors, and contributors to Current Issues in Education,

 

Welcome to Issue 18.2 of CIE, our summer edition. We had a great diversity of publications once again in Issue 18.1 and look forward to a similarly diverse selection of articles in 18.2. The CIE editorial team is happy to start Issue 18.1 with two publications by Tadesse and Gillies (http://cie.asu.edu/ojs/index.php/cieatasu/article/view/1374) and Chung et al. (http://cie.asu.edu/ojs/index.php/cieatasu/article/view/1386). More articles will follow through the summer.

While we are continuing to move articles through the review process and, if applicable, through editing and toward publication, we are also simultaneously in the process of moving our archives to our current website. As a student-run journal, we lacked the resources to move issues prior to 2010 to our current website, which meant that they remained hosted on our old website. After a server move last year, however, the old website became defunct and so did the old links to articles prior to 2010. Therefore, we are currently recovering the articles in our archives, reformatting them, and moving them to our current website with new links and citations. This process is expected to be completed by the time Issue 18.3 will be published in August. If you are looking for an article prior to 2010 and cannot find it on our website, please send an email to cie@asu.edu and we will get it to you as soon as possible in the new format with an updated link.

Once again, I am happy to be able to report a high number of submissions to Current Issues in Education. The CIE editorial staff is excited about the interest that researchers show in the journal, but we also have to face the fact that we are a student-run journal relying largely on volunteers. Therefore, we have decided to once again implement a submission hiatus until August 15th of this year, essentially covering the summer months. This measure was taken to improve the time it takes to move articles through the peer review and to a manuscript decision.

To improve the peer review process and our time to manuscript decision, we are also always looking for reviewers. We have a large database of reviewers, largely from North America that increasingly becomes more international, which we are excited about. If you wish to serve as a peer reviewer for Current Issues in Education, please register on our website and select "reviewer" as a role. As a peer reviewer, you are an integral part of this journal and can make invaluable contributions to the quality that it provides.


Happy reading!
