Welcome to CERJ

The Cambridge Educational Research e-Journal (CERJ) is a higher-degree graduate-led initiative based out of the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge. CERJ showcases on-going and completed work from early career researchers in the field of education.

In 2021, the CERJ team intends to build a diverse and collaborative community for educational researchers both within Cambridge and beyond. We hope to support first-time authors and reviewers to ease their way into the world of publication, to help published authors with the  promotion of their on-going or completed works and to facilitate the exchange of ideas among educational researchers. By doing so, we hope to unlock the collaborative potential among early career educational researchers, and to instill new meanings to CERJ, to represent collaboration, engagement, rigour and joy.

CERJ was previously known as CORERJ. In 2020, Chief Editor Basma Hajir proposed deleting the two words 'open review' from the title to forground the rigour of the double-blind peer-review process that CERJ articles undergo. The name change took effect following a unanimous voting from FERSA community in favour of this proposition. Volume 7 in the first volume published under the new name Cambridge Educational Research e-journal (CERJ).

In 2018 CERJ was accepted for listing on DOAJ. DOAJ is a community-curated online directory that indexes and provides access to more than 11,000 high quality open access, peer-reviewed journals from 128 countries around the world. In addition, the journal is securely archived on Apollo, the University of Cambridge Repository.
