AAUP: Media, Think Tanks, and Educational Research


Nice article here by Holly Yettick about how education research is (not) reported to the public. At least in part, I see this as an open access issue, as I wrote about in http://blog.mathed.net/2011/10/publication-paradox.html. This paragraph about AERA's influence is telling: "For example, my dissertation research examines educational research in print and online-only media outlets. Though I have so far sorted through nearly forty thousand articles in hundreds of publications, I have yet to come across a single mention of any of the six peer-reviewed education journals published by the American Educational Research Association, the world's largest academic organization devoted to the study of education."
