Abstract

The editorship of this journal is an honor and a heavy professional responsibility. It is an honor because this is one of the oldest journals in psychology, with authors who have been some of the most distinguished members of our profession. Some of our authors see themselves primarily as experimental psychologists, and they contribute to the body of psychological knowledge that may have implications for educational policies, plans, and practices. Other authors see themselves as primarily educational researchers interested in the application and testing of psychological principles in educational contexts. This journal's policies have allowed the publication of well-written articles from both of these stereotyped positions (and indeed from many intermediate positions). My intention is to retain this breadth of scope. A second problem--though again one which is clearly not an unmitigated curse--lies in the number of articles submitted to this journal. Unfortunately, the rejection rate has continued to be high. It is not an editorial ambition to maintain this high rejection rate--only to maintain a high standard of publication. I shall attempt to act responsibly and to account publicly each year for editorial practices. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
