  • Title: Publication patterns in 3 prominent Educational Psychology Journals: The geography of editors, advisors, authors, and participants
  • Abstract:

    This article considers the publication practices of 3 leading journals in Educational Psychology, for the 6 year period, 2008-2013, to determine their representation of countries throughout the world among the editors, editorial board members, authors, and the particpants in the samples.  The journals considered are: 1) The Journal of Educational Psychology (JEP), 2) Contemporary Educational Psychology (CEP), and 3) The British Journal of Educational Psychology (BJEP). The journals published in the United States (JEP and CEP) still have a 60-80 percent focus on individuals and participants in the United States; for BJEP, the focus hovers between 25 and 55 percent.  Europe, other English speaking countries, and Asia, together are more prominent in the BJEP than in the US journals.
