Frequently Asked Questions

How can I become a contributor?

We are excited to launch the first annual nomination process for additional contributors. We anticipate welcoming a small number of new contributors who meet the same high standards our current contributors meet (i.e. an established record of publishing high-quality work related to education policy in top-tier journals). Nomination process is open until Friday, August 30th. Nominees will be reviewed by small panels of current contributors with expertise in specific disciplines. We anticipate announcing the new slate of contributors in late September.
