Arts Education Policy Review


Today I received the news that I have been appointed to the editorial board of Arts Education Policy Review. Regarded by many as the leading arts education journal, AEPR is certainly among the oldest in the field, originally known as Design (1899 - 1977), then Design For Arts in Education (1977 - 1992), it has been known as Arts Education Policy Review since 1992 and is published with global distribution by Routledge/Taylor&Francis. The journal is now developing its 115th issue, and its board members include specialists in dance, music, theatre and visual arts. I will post more information shortly about access to AEPR and upcoming special issues of this journal. 

Here is the journal description: 
“Arts Education Policy Review is a peer-reviewed journal published by Routledge/Taylor & Francis. Arts Education Policy Review presents discussion of major policy issues in arts education in the United States and throughout the world. Addressing education in music, visual arts, theatre, and dance, the journal presents a variety of views and emphasizes critical analysis. Its goal is to produce the most comprehensive and rigorous exchange of ideas available on arts education policy. Policy examinations from multiple viewpoints are a valuable resource not only for arts educators, but also for administrators, policy analysts, advocacy groups, parents, and audiences - all those involved in the arts and concerned about their role in education. Arts Education Policy Review does not promote individuals, institutions, methods, or products. It does not aim to repeat commonplace ideas. Articles show originality, probe deeply, and take discussion beyond common wisdom and familiar rhetoric. Articles that merely restate the importance of arts education, call attention to the existence of issues long since addressed, or repeat standard solutions are not published.”
