Peer Review Policy

About TxEd Peer Reviewers:

Members of the Texas Education Review (TxEd) Editorial Board serve as reviewers in the peer review process.  Board members are doctoral students with advanced degrees in Education and/or related fields. 

About the TxEd Peer Review Process:

    1. Published TxEd manuscripts and editorials serve as examples of the content and writing style appropriate for our audience.
    2. Manuscripts and editorials will be considered for publication on the basis of their originality, advancement of a significant issue in education, scholarly competence and lack of technical jargon, and ability to follow TxEd guidelines.
    3. Upon receipt, manuscripts and editorials will be read by two peer reviewers to determine publication eligibility.
    4. Manuscripts and editorials are subject to a blind peer review process handled by the Managing Editor, who is an Executive Board member.  Manuscripts and editorials must pass both reviews to be considered for publication.
    5. The Managing Editor determines whether the manuscript and/or editorial should be 1. accepted with minor changes; 2. returned to the author(s) for a revise and resubmit; or 3. rejected.
    6. Authors will receive written feedback regarding minor changes, as well as needed changes to be considered for a revise and resubmit.
    7. All revisions required for publication must be met by the deadline provided for the authors by the Managing Editor.  The Managing Editor establishes the TxEd yearly publication timeline and therefore determines when a manuscript and/or editorial is ready for publication.
    8. Authors retain copyright over the articles published in TxEd.  However, authors grant the journal rights to make content available on-line, in perpetuity.  Authors may reproduce their content in subsequent publication, but TxEd must be acknowledged as the original publisher.

Current Issue

We are pleased to announce the publication of Volume 9, Issue 2 of the Texas Education Review.

Coinciding with the current Texas 87th Legislative Session, Issue 9 (2) of the Texas Education Review contains a Special Issue on the Texas 87th. The Special Issue is edited by William J. Davies, a Doctoral student in the Educational Leadership and Policy Studies Program. The issue contains one open-call article: a quantitative analysis of racialized trends in disciplinary practices in Texas schools (Lenderman & Hawkins). It also contains three articles as part of the Special Issue on the Texas 87th: a critical policy analysis on aligning dual language practices with Texas early childhood literacy and mathematics proficiency plans (Hernández & Núñez Porras); a policy analysis centering the troubling relationship between standardized testing in Texas and the school to prison pipeline (Del Carmen Unda & Lizárraga-Dueñas); and a critical policy review that links neoliberal highstakes accountability regimes to the historical context of the eugenics movement (Madrigal & Epstein).
