The editorship of the Comparative Education Review will be transferred to the College of Education’s Department of Educational Policy, Research and Administration, as of July 1, 2013 for an initial five-year term. The Comparative Education Review (CER) is the premier journal in the U.S. in the field of comparative and international education and is the official journal of the Comparative and International Education Society. It is a peer-reviewed journal which is published quarterly. The journal was founded in 1956.
Three College of Education associate professors have been named to editorial positions: Bjorn Nordtveit has been named editor; Cris Smith has been named one of the co-editors, and Jacqi Mosselson will serve as the book review editor. They will work in cooperation with four co-editors from partner institutions: Kathryn Anderson-Levitt (UCLA), Stephen Carney (Roskilde University, Denmark), Peter Easton (Florida State University), and Elizabeth King (World Bank). Graduate students will assist in various ways, including as managing editors.
The new editorial team, in addition to continuing current practices of the journal, plans to bring attention to international scholarship by including reviews of articles, themes, debates and books from non-English authors and academic sources.
