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 19.2

 

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

 

We welcome you to our Summer Issue 19(2). This will be the last issue before a new journal leadership will implement the previously announced restructuring of Current Issues in Education’s organization, focus, and scope. As pointed out in our Spring Issue announcement, we continue to be under a submission hiatus, which we expect to end in August 2016. This means that we currently are not accepting manuscript submissions.


The restructuring initiated by the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College (MLFTC) includes a variety of changes concerning the journal’s structure and mission, which we believe will result in improvements for all journal stakeholders. Most prominently, the journal will be guided by a new editorial/supervisory board consisting of MLFTC faculty members and one doctoral student from each of MLFTC’s doctoral programs. This committee will also select the new editorial leadership. Further, the journal’s focus and scope journal will correspond to MLFTC’s three doctoral programs: educational policy and evaluation; learning, literacies, and technologies; and action research. This means that starting in Fall 2016, CIE will accept submissions to these three areas of focus:

1) Educational policy and evaluation articles that document both the directly instrumental and symbolic nature of educational policy and practices.

2) Learning, literacies, and technologies articles that explore critical issues in how people learn, the context for developing literacies, and the roles of technologies in educational settings. This area also includes investigations of effective pedagogical perspectives and methods.

3) Action research articles, i.e. studies of educational change in education settings that are grounded in action research methods as well as methodological pieces about the use of action research in education.

 

The changes resulting from CIE’s restructuring are now reflected in the appropriate places on our website; however, continued updates to the journal’s policies are likely to be made this coming Fall, so be sure to check our policies or email us directly at cie@asu.edu.

 

As before, articles missing from the archives will be made available over the coming months and availability can be accelerated upon request – please email us at cie@asu.edu for any requests and questions regarding the archives.

 

As always: Happy reading and thank you for your contributions to and interest in CIE!

Editorial: Welcome to Issue 19.1

 

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

 

Welcome to the calendar year 2016 and thus Issue 19 of CIE. Our Spring Issue 19(1) has just been opened and will once again feature a diversity of publications from a variety of fields in education research. While we currently have a submission hiatus in place until August 2016, we continue to review manuscripts that were submitted before the hiatus and publish accepted manuscripts. This practice will continue for 19(2), our summer issue, as well.

The current hiatus is part of a larger restructuring of Current Issues in Education initiated by the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, which we believe will result to improvements for all stakeholders in the journal: First of all our readers, authors, and reviewers, but also for editors, i.e. doctoral students, journal advisors, and Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College administrators, faculty, and staff. More details about the changes will be announced as the restructuring process develops.

Articles missing from archives over the coming months and availability can be accelerated upon request. We will provide updates here concerning both availability of archives and the restructuring of the journal, but please also utilize our social media to stay up-to-date with CIE:

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:
