I just volunteered to review papers in 2008 for several divisions and SIGs of AERA, the American Educational Research Association. It’s a very long list (12 divisions, 3 committees, and 160 SIGs). Below are the SIGs that grabbed my attention.
Mind you, the American Educational Research Association is sincere.
Thank you for volunteering for the 2008 aera Annual Meeting.
Thank you for your submission.
