How to Submit

The Alberta Journal of Educational Research (AJER) based at the University of Alberta Faculty of Education has been devoted to the dissemination, interpretation, critique, and support of all forms of scholarly inquiry into education, both locally and globally, since 1955. Owing to changes in funding that will effectively close off avenues of financial support for the quarterly publication, the AJER will suspend publication following its June 2024 issue.

As Canada’s oldest independent scholarly educational journal, its suspension leaves a significant gap among education research publications. However, the scholarship found in AJER will remain available in its online archive to inform and inspire future scholarship while we seek a sustainable path forward and a plan for digitizing all issues so they are accessible is underway.


The Alberta Journal of Educational Research welcomes submissions of all forms of systematic enquiry into education and fields related to or associated with education.

We recommend that authors review the About the Journal page for the journal's policies, as well as the Author Guidelines.

Submissions are welcomed through our online system. We cannot accept submissions by email. Please note that many of our users have had difficulty logging in when using Internet Explorer.  We would like to encourage all of our users to use a web browser other than IE when accessing this site.
