Current Issues in Education (CIE; ISSN 1099-839X) is an open access, peer-reviewed academic education journal produced by doctoral students at Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College of Arizona State University. The journal publishes articles on a broad range of education topics that are timely and have relevance in the field of education both nationally and internationally. We seek innovative scholarship that tackles challenging issues facing education.

The mission of the journal is to advance scholarly thought by publishing articles promoting dialogue, research, practice, and policy, as well as developing a community of scholarship. We are currently accepting submissions that fit into three strains of educational research.  One includes articles that examine current educational policy, another seeks articles that examine practices of literacies, learning and technology, and the last solicits pieces that apply action research methodologies in various educational contexts.

Manuscripts for the educational policy strain might focus on a wide variety of policies and programs from early childhood education through postsecondary education. Examples include policy briefs, commentaries, literature reviews, methods papers (both qualitative and quantitative), and theoretical or conceptual pieces.

Manuscripts that examine literacies and learning include, but are not limited to: literature reviews, methods papers, papers that employ qualitative methods, theoretical platforms, and mixed methods.

Action research manuscripts should clearly demonstrate a disciplined inquiry that includes procedures, measures, and outcomes. Reflection upon these should be demonstrated by the practitioner to highlight the efforts that improve practice through scientific approaches. The work should help bridge the gap that lies between research and practice.

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 must register for a journal account and should examine our author guidelines requirements. As an open access journal, authors maintain the copyright to their published work.
