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 in Florida. Although the Journal is the primary publication of FERA, manuscripts submitted by both members and nonmembers of the Association will be considered for publication.

Types of Studies

Manuscripts that report the following will be considered: (a) applied research, (b) basic research, (c) position papers, (d) critiques of recently published research or position papers, and (e) meta-analysis of research. The term research is intended to be interpreted broadly, to include evaluation, status studies, relationships, causality, case studies, educational ethnography, historical studies, etc. Studies that focus on either processes or outcomes are acceptable.
Topics of Studies

Manuscripts on a wide variety of education-related topics are of interest. A few of the topics previously published in the journal include:

  •     Achievement
  •     Attitudes
  •     Curriculum
  •     Data Processing Techniques
  •     Educational Technology
  •     Guidance/Placement
  •     Learning Principles
  •     Management of Teaching and Learning
  •     Measurement/Testing Techniques
  •     Motivation
  •     Policy Analysis
  •     Program Evaluation
  •     Research Procedures
  •     Teaching Methodology


Regardless of the methods employed or topics addressed in a manuscript, priority will be given to those that: (a) appear to have the greatest potential interest to the widest range of FERA members, (b) appear to be generalizable beyond the sample and context used in the study, and (c) have clear implications for educational practice or educational research.
