Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review

It is an honor, a privilege, and an enormous responsibility to serve as the editor of the Journal of Educational Psychology (JEP), the leading outlet for high-quality empirical research in the field of educational psychology. The journal's stellar reputation and standing in the field have continuously grown under the leadership of my predecessors (including those during the last 4 decades: Joanna Williams, Samuel Ball, Robert Calfee, Joel Levin, Michael Pressley, Karen Harris, Art Graesser, and Steve Graham). They have ensured that the work submitted and published in the journal represents the best empirical research in educational psychology and education more broadly. I recognize that the publication standards each editor sets in the journal not only have a direct impact on what gets published but also influence research practices and, consequently, the training of new scholars. My main priority is to be a good steward of this legacy and continue to enhance the journal's commitment to research excellence through greater emphasis on diversity and transparency.
