The Florida Journal of Educational Research (FJER) is published by the Florida Educational Research Association (FERA). The basic purpose of FJER is to facilitate communication among educators, policy-makers, and researchers in the state of Florida and beyond. Although the Journal is the primary publication of FERA, manuscripts submitted by both members and nonmembers of the Association will be considered for publication. FJER has been published since 1959 originally as a print journal distributed to all current members of FERA. In 1996, the journal began to publish online articles and is now published exclusively published online as an open-access academic journal.

Articles for consideration must be original research that has not been previously published and should focus on studies and systematic analyses that employ qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methodologies. The number of theoretical articles published by FJER each year is unlimited since each article is assigned a unique issue number. FJER is a double-blind peer-reviewed academic journal with typical editorial decisions based on the reviews of two to three members of the editorial board. Since December 2017, FJER has started to track the number of article downloads for individual FJER articles.

FJER publishes original research, literature reviews, implementation and evaluation studies, and theoretical, conceptual, and policy papers that contribute to our understanding of the issues, problems, and research associated with educational environments. Articles for consideration do not have to originate from the state of Florida. Articles should be 5,000 to 7,000 words in length. While the acceptance rate of the journal varies from year to year, our approximate acceptance rate is 25% – 45%.
