24 Feb 2023
BERA is delighted to announce that, following a competitive application process, Sara Hennessy (University of Cambridge), Manolis Mavrikis (UCL), Mutlu Cukurova (UCL) and Louis Major (University of Manchester) have been appointed for another term as editors of the British Journal of Educational Technology (BJET). They will be joined by a new team member, Cathy Lewin, Professor of Education at Manchester Metropolitan University.
BJET is a primary source for academics and professionals in the field of digital educational and training technology throughout the world. BJET’s impact factor is 5.268 and the journal ranks 23rd out of 270 in the education and educational research category, while being consistently ranked among the top three generic educational technology journals, a testament to its high quality and global reach.
The journal has experienced significant growth and success in recent years, and BERA very much looks forward to working with the appointed editorial team to build on these achievements further. The editors say: ‘We are delighted to continue working as editors of BJET and are excited to welcome Cathy Lewin to the team. Together we will maintain BJET’s high editorial standards and will collaborate with BERA to advance our strategic vision for the journal in our new term as editors.’
BERA issued an open call for applications for the editorship of the journal in 2022, inviting proposals that set out a strategic vision for BJET. Shortlisted applicants were selected for interview based on the strength of their proposals and their relevant experience in the field. Throughout this process, the selection panel was impressed by the appointed team’s shared vision for the journal and their cohesion in working together to drive this vision forward.
Sara Price (UCL) stepped down from her position as editor of BJET in December 2022 to focus on her research. The editors and BERA wish to thank Sara for her invaluable support of the journal over the past seven years.
