Professional Journals

There is a list of what ACER call 'core journals' indexed by ACER for the Australian Education Index. Many of these are research journals but there are also Professional Journals. There is also an overlapping list at Aussie Educator. World Newspapers also has a list of magazines and journals for educators.

There is a directory of Open Access (*OA*) journals that you may find useful. It is a mix of research and professional journals.

*GU* = available via the Griffith Library
*OA* = available wholly or partly online (OA=open access)

The list was put together some time ago. If a link fails, use your trusty search skills to track it down and let me know that the link needs a fix! Thanks.

One of the problems with Professional Journals in education is that they can suddenly disappear or change what they are doing/publishing. Some also operate as conduits for consulting firms keen to sell their materials.

This list is not meant to be comprehensive. Feel free to add to or edit this list or email any changes you want made.
