Journal History

For almost 60 years, the Alberta Journal of Educational Research (AJER) has been published by the Faculty of Education, University of Alberta, as a peer-reviewed journal for the dissemination of educational research findings, and as a forum for the discussion of issues in education. When publication began in 1955, the focus of the journal was primarily the Province of Alberta. Then, as now, a purpose of AJER was to apprise Alberta school teachers and administrators of current educational research and trends in educational policy. AJER is the oldest active Canadian scholarly educational journal.
