When Counter Narratives Meet Master Narratives in the Journal Editorial-Review Process
Stanley, Christine A.
Educational Researcher, v36 n1 p14-24 2007
The author shares her experiences with the editorial-review process while publishing a qualitative research study on the teaching experiences of African American faculty members at two predominantly White research universities. She likens the experiences of African American faculty members to counter narratives, troubles master narratives in the editorial-review process, draws implications, and makes recommendations for researchers invested in nonmainstream educational research in higher education. This is a call to journal editors and reviewers to examine their roles as disciplinary gatekeepers and to break the cycle of master narratives in educational research and the editorial-review process.
