Michael Gottfried of UC Santa Barbara’s Gevirtz School has been chosen an Outstanding Reviewer for 2017 by the American Educational Research Association (AERA) and Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis (EEPA). The notification letter to Dr. Gottfried says, “EEPA would not be the leading journal it is today without the professional assistance of reviewers such as yourself.”
As part of the honor, Gottfried will be publicly recognized at this year’s AERA Annual Meeting at the Journal Publications Committee Reception in New York City on Saturday, April 14, from 8:15 pm to 10 pm.
Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis publishes rigorous, policy-relevant research of interest to those engaged in educational policy analysis, evaluation, and decision making. EEPA is a multidisciplinary journal, and editors consider original research from multiple disciplines, theoretical orientations, and methodologies.
