             Call for Nominations for the Editorship of
            Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis
                (January 2004 through December 2006)

   The Publications Committee of the American Educational Research Association invites nominations for the 2004-
   2006 editorship of Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis (EEPA). The journal focuses on educational evaluation,
   educational policy analysis, and the relationship between the two activities. EEPA deals not only with theoretical and
   methodological issues but also with the practical concerns of those engaged in the evaluation of educational enter-
   prises and the formulation of educational policy. The journal is intended to apprise readers of current developments
   in educational evaluation and policy analysis, including policy development and policy implementation.
   The editor is responsible for accepting and rejecting manuscripts of the basis of the quality of the scholarly work
   presented and the suitability of the subject matter for EEPA. The editor guides manuscripts through the review
   process, oversees revisions, and plans issues of the journal. The Association provides a modest budget to reimburse
   the editor for direct costs such as an editorial assistant, postage, telephone, and photocopying. Nominees should be
   recognized scholars with background and interest appropriate for EEPA. Nominees should also possess managerial
   and organizational skills as well as publishing or editorial experience. The new editor will begin receiving manuscripts
   on or about July 2003 (the first published issue will appear in Spring 2004). Self-nominations and nomination of
   others are welcome, as are nominations of editorial teams. Appointment is projected to be made in December 2002.
   The deadline for nominations is November 1, 2002.
   If a self-nomination, include a current C.V. and a letter of interest. Send all letters of nomination to,
