The "Gatekeeper" Role in Educational Journal Publishing. Final Report.
Silverman, Robert J.; Collins, Erik L.
To explore the demographic, professional and ideational dimensions of educational-journal editors and to investigate publishing processes in general, questionnaires were sent to a list of journal editors and in-depth interviews were held with eight editors, two each from research, scholarly, professional, and association publications. Journal-author relationships, criteria for manuscript selection, and anticipated futures of education were discussed and data was analyzed. Conclusions were drawn about systematic attention to editorial practices and editorial success within their environments. Suggestions were made for editorial workshops which might provide for better service and greater accountability to the field. (SK)
