Impacting Education Journal logo

Impacting Education: Journal for Transforming Professional Practice (IE) is CPED's peer-reviewed academic journal.

This online, open-source journal seeks to provide a forum where academics and practitioners alike may 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 the outcomes of such programs including the skills, knowledge, dispositions, and impact of EdD program graduates.

As such, scholarship generated in IE will have strong implications for the management and policies of schools of education, their EdD programs and the research, teaching, and learning of their faculty and students.

IE publishes research articles, dissertation in practice research articles (see section policies for special note), essay manuscripts and book reviews of works that support the preparation of educational leaders. The free open-access journal is hosted by the University of Pittsburgh.
