New journal aimed at urban education issues

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

The UNC Charlotte Urban Education Collaborative has launched an online graduate student peer-reviewed journal entitled Urban Education Research and Policy Annuals.

This journal will highlight the research of graduate students from across the United States in the field of urban education. Doctoral candidates from the College of Education will manage the journal with oversight from Chance Lewis, Carol Grotnes Belk Distinguished Professor of Urban Education and director of the Urban Education Collaborative.

Graduate students from U.S. colleges and universities can submit articles for publication with faculty mentors; however, the graduate student must be the first author on the scholarly product.

The first issue will be released in March. The project is a joint venture with the J. Murrey Atkins Library. A launch party is being planned for later this semester.
