The Journal of Practitioner Research (JPR), a double-blind, peer-reviewed, open-access journal, includes manuscripts that represent the traditions of action research, teacher research, practitioner inquiry, teacher inquiry, and other traditions that target the same type of knowledge production. The journal features the work of practitioner researchers or about practitioner research across disciplines and levels. As a forum for such research, we invite submissions by practicing educators such as pre-service teachers, in-service teachers, teacher education faculty, educational leadership faculty, and school administrators.

See the About This Journal for further information about coverage of the journal.
