The History of Education Quarterly is the scholarly journal of the History of Education Society (U.S.). With a circulation of 1500, the QUARTERLY reaches individuals and institutions worldwide and is considered this nation's journal of record in the field. QUARTERLY contributors, board members, and editors are leading researchers in departments of history, education, women's studies, and related social-science fields in both U.S. and overseas institutions. The journal publishes varied types of manuscripts, including research essays, retrospectives, historiographic and multi-book review essays, and 60-80 individual book reviews annually. The journal's broad scope embraces education in its many settings, both formal and informal. Social, political, and economic historians frequently review books for the journal, as do scholars with an interest in biography and autobiography. Foreign-language books may also be reviewed.
At this time the QUARTERLY has a particular interest in broadening its contacts with potential book reviewers. We do not accept requests from contributors to review particular books, though we do welcome recommendations regarding titles we should be aware of to review. In particular our current needs include:
Broadening our reviewer pool for, and awareness of, books published about the history of education in Asia, Latin America, Africa, and Europe, including reviewers fluent in the appropriate languages;
Continuing to expand our reviewer pool for U.S. history topics to senior, mid-career, and junior scholars, both U.S.-based and abroad, whether in departments of education, history, other social science departments, museums, institutes, school districts, or policy capacities whose scholarship overlaps our interests. We also like to know about highly capable graduate students in the last stages of their dissertation work, as opportunities occasionally arise to utilize their services.
We prefer that our reviewers consider maintaining an active membership in the History of Education Society, and would be pleased to send a complimentary copy of the journal to interested persons.
If you wish to become a prospective book review for the HISTORY OF EDUCATION QUARTERLY, and/or would be willing to join our informal list of "foreign correspondents" who can help keep us apprised of new English- and foreign-language publications covering the history of education internationally, please contact Prof. Robert Levin at your earliest convenience. Membership inquiries and requests for complimentary journal copies may go directly to Dr. Bruce Nelson, managing editor and administrator for the QUARTERLY.
