SYRACUSE, N.Y. (PRWEB) April 08, 2019
ProLiteracy, the largest adult literacy and basic education membership organization in the United States, announces our new online research journal, Adult Literacy Education: The International Journal of Literacy, Language, and Numeracy (ALE).
This new journal is a peer-reviewed, free, online research journal that will be available twice per year. Adult Literacy Education’s purpose is to publish research on adult basic and secondary education and transitions to career and college. Research will reflect best practices in adult education in order to inform practitioners, researchers, policy makers, and funders.
ProLiteracy produces this new journal in partnership with Rutgers University. The journal team—Alisa Belzer, Amy Rose, and Heather Brown—are seasoned researchers and editors of various types of journals. “ProLiteracy is thrilled to be able to partner with an outstanding editorial team to produce Adult Literacy Education, a true peer-reviewed research journal with new resources for the adult literacy field,” says ProLiteracy President and CEO, Kevin Morgan.
The Adult Literacy Education journal is available at https://www.proliteracy.org/ALE-Journal. Author guidelines and a submission form are also available for writers to submit research manuscripts for future issues of the journal.
This journal is part of ProLiteracy’s expanded initiative to conduct and share primary and secondary research with a wide adult education audience in the United States and internationally. “This new journal is just one step ProLiteracy is taking towards providing adult education practitioners with the research they need to help them provide quality services to learners and also advocate with policy makers and funders,” Kevin Morgan says.
