Peurach, Donald J.; Cohen, David K.; Yurkofsky, Maxwell M.; Spillane, James P. – Review of Research in Education, 2019
In the early 1990s, the logic and policies of systemic reform launched a press to coordinate the pursuit of excellence and equity in U.S. public education, with each other and with classroom instruction.

This chapter provides some deep background on epistemological and other issues that shape current research,…

Over many decades, educators have developed countless interventions and theories about how to create lasting change.

In other words, implementation research is an endeavor to understand if and…

Beadie, Nancy – Review of Research in Education, 2016
Studies of the rise of social science research in education typically focus on the Progressive Era, from 1890 to 1930, the period in which the American Educational Research Association (AERA) was founded.

Vanderstraeten, Raf; Vandermoere, Frédéric; Hermans, Maarten – Review of Research in Education, 2016
Scientific disciplines build on social structures, such as scholarly associations and scholarly journals, that facilitate the formation of communities of specialists. Analyses of such social structures can thus also be used to shed light on the morphogenesis of scientific specializations. The authors analyze how two journals of the American…
