Due to the large number of manuscripts currently awaiting decisions and our upcoming transition to a new Editorial Board, the Harvard Educational Review will be pausing the open calls for Research articles, Essays, Voices articles, and Other Submissions, effective March 11th, 2022, at 11:59 pm US Eastern time.
Open calls will resume in Summer 2022; please check this page for updates as we move closer to that date.
Any manuscripts already submitted through the open call and acknowledged by HER, as well as all invited manuscripts, R&R’d manuscripts, and manuscripts currently in production, are NOT affected in any way by the pause in open calls. You may continue to submit pieces through the open call until March 11th.
If you have concerns or questions, please visit the FAQ, https://www.hepg.org/special/navigation/her-main/her-faq, or contact the Co-Chairs, Alyssa Napier and Abigail Orrick, at HER_community@gse.harvard.edu.
Thank you very much for your interest in Harvard Educational Review and for your patience with our process. The Editorial Board wishes to thank our authors for sharing their work with HER throughout the last two years, which has seen numerous interruptions to research and scholarly work as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to reviewing your pieces when we reopen our calls.
The 2021-2022 Editorial Board
The Harvard Educational Review is a journal of opinion and research in the field of education. Articles are selected, edited, and published by an editorial board of graduate students at Harvard University. The editorial policy does not reflect an official position of the faculty of Education or any other Harvard faculty. (print ISSN 0017-8055, online ISSN 1943-5045)
HER accepts contributions from researchers, scholars, policy makers, practitioners, teachers, students, and informed observers in education and related fields. In addition to original reports of research and theory, HER welcomes articles that reflect on teaching and practice in educational settings in the United States and abroad.
It is the policy of HER to review manuscripts that are not simultaneously being considered at another journal. HER will not consider manuscripts that are currently available online. To this end, the journal requires that authors remove manuscripts from publicly available websites before submission.
Thank you for your interest in the Harvard Educational Review. Please submit your manuscript under the appropriate submission category below. For more information about the types of submissions we consider as well as details about submission formatting and our review process, please see here
