Leadership and Research in Education: The Journal of the OCPEA

The journal offers an academic forum for scholarly discussions of education, curriculum and pedagogy, leadership theory, and policy studies in order to elucidate effective practices for classrooms, schools, and communities.

The mission of the OCPEA journal is to not only publish high quality manuscripts on various political, societal, and policy-based issues in the field of education, but also to provide our authors with opportunities for growth through our extensive peer review process.  We encourage graduate students, practitioners, and early career scholars to submit manuscripts as well as senior faculty and administrators.  We accept quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods, and action research based approaches as well as non-traditional and creative approaches to educational research and policy analysis, including the application of educational practices. 

Leadership and Research in Education: The Journal of the OCPEA is a refereed online journal published twice yearly since the inaugural edition in 2014 for the Ohio Council of Professors of Educational Administration (OCPEA). The journal will be listed in the Current Index to Journals in Education (CIJE), and will be catalogued in the Education Resources Information Center (ERIC) database.
