Vanderbilt Peabody College of education and human development professor Ellen Goldring will serve for two more years as editor-in-chief of the flagship academic journal in education, the American Educational Research Journal (AERJ).

The American Educational Research Association, which publishes the journal, recently announced that its editorial team has been renewed until 2024. Goldring, executive associate dean and Patricia and Rodes Hart Professor of Educational Leadership and Policy, leads an editorial team from six different institutions.

“On behalf of the association, we could not be more pleased that this team of highly distinguished scholars with an openness and commitment to inclusivity will continue to serve for an additional two years,” AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine said in an announcement on the association’s website. “With an editor-in-chief like Ellen and an exceptional team of co-editors, we know that the trains will not only run on time, but will also get to the right destinations.”

“Ellen Goldring brings exceptional command of the top issues in our discipline to its most important journal,” Camilla P. Benbow, Patricia and Rodes Hart Dean of Education and Development, said. “We are delighted to see her continue as editor-in-chief.”

AERJ features articles that advance the empirical, theoretical and methodological understanding of education and learning. It publishes original peer-reviewed analyses that span the field of education research across all subfields and disciplines and all levels of analysis. It also encourages submissions across all levels of education throughout the life span and all forms of learning.
