One of my roles at HUL will be the operational management and “editor-in-chief” for EDeR – an open access journal on Educational Design Research.
The journal will be published and hosted by Hamburg University Press that is operated by the Hamburg State and University Library Carl von Ossietzky. The details for this partnership are currently worked out.
Apart from the fact that this journal will be dedicated to contributions focusing on Design-Based Research in a wide range of educational contexts, what I find interesting is the particular review process that is intended. We will implement and evaluate a Triple-Peer-Review process that combines elements of a senior-editor model with peer review, and peer discussion. Stay tuned for the details. I will post more on this matter shortly.
We will try to get a first issue published by May 2016. Thus, in September and October we will be looking for collaborators in various roles. If you are invested in Design-Based Research in education you might want to consider coming on board in one way or another.
