Reviewing Papers for the Annual Meetings of State and Regional Educational Research Associations.
Archambault, Francis X., Jr.
Results of a survey designed to determine the procedures which State and Regional Educational Research Associations use to review papers for their meetings are presented. Lists of these organizations, including the names and addresses of contacts, were provided by the Special Interest Group (SIG) chairperson of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). Questionnaires were sent to 13 state associations and 10 regional groups. Usable responses were received from seven state associations and nine regional groups. The survey instrument consisted of 11 items, including five open-ended questions. Issues addressed by the questionnaire were: (1) frequency of meetings; (2) format of the presentations and other sessions found at these meetings; (3) procedures used to solicit and review papers, including the types of reviewers employed, the procedures for soliciting reviewers, and the criteria used by them to accept or reject papers; and (4) the acceptance rate resulting from the use of these procedures. Respondents were asked to use their last meeting as the basis for their response. The general conclusion reached was that a great deal of diversity exists in the way these associations plan for and conduct the professional aspects of their meetings. (Author/RL)
