Announcing New Impacting Education Special Issue Series:
100 Years of the EdD

The Impacting Education (IE) journal is an open access, international blind peer-reviewed journal where academics and practitioners can publish scholarly articles that meaningfully contribute to the improved preparation of PK-20 educational leaders through the examination of the development, redesign, and improvement of professional preparation programs as well as their outcomes.

This year marks 100 years since the founding of the first EdD program. To highlight and celebrate this milestone and the progress made toward making the EdD a degree that prepares scholarly practitioners for their work in the field, IE is running a special series of three themed journal issues. Each issue will be led by guest editors with content-expertise and will be published in the spring of 2021.
