SAGE to Publish Australian Journal of Education and Australian Journal of Career Development from April 2013

SAGE and the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) today announced a new agreement to publish its two journals, The Australian Journal of Education and The Australian Journal of Career Development, from April 2013.

The Australian Journal of Education is Australia’s leading educational research journal, publishing the highest quality content for a global audience, informing educational researchers, educators, administrators and policymakers about contemporary concerns in education.  Its sister journal The Australian Journal of Career Development focuses on theory, practice and policy relating to career development. Both peer-reviewed and published three times a year, the journals seek to create and promote research-based knowledge, products and services that can be used to improve learning across the education sector.

“We are delighted to have been selected by ACER to publish their two prestigious journals,” said Karen Phillips, Editorial Director, SAGE. “SAGE has a strong program of journals representing leading international scholars in the education discipline. At our heart is engaged scholarship, academic excellence and the intrinsic value of education. SAGE is committed to disseminating key academic research and our continued long-term partnerships with the education community ensure this. We see both journals as a key forum for developing understandings about education training and education in relation to other fields. We look forward to developing both as part of our education portfolio.”

ACER is excited about the benefits that our new relationship with SAGE will bring,” commented Geoff Masters, Chief Executive Officer. “When choosing a new publisher, it is important to find one who is aligned, understands and is committed to your core values. SAGE has a strong portfolio of international education journals. Committed to the dissemination of research to an international audience, SAGE is aligned with our values of sustaining and developing the unique focus of our research and to extending accessibility to a larger international audience. We value SAGE’s dedication to publishing high quality research and the services they offer their authors and editors. It is a partnership we are excited to see develop into a longstanding future together.”
