Co-Editors, Lori Diane Hill and Felice J. Levine introduce the inaugural volume of the World Education Research Yearbook series

We are pleased to introduce the inaugural volume of the World Education Research Yearbook. It presents a collection of the strongest research papers considered and disseminated by the World Education Research Association (WERA). As an association of national, regional and international education research associations, WERA was established to go beyond what any individual association could achieve in its own country, region or area of specialization.  The collective ambition of the Association is to undertake initiatives that are global in nature and to catalyze, stimulate and lead in ways that promote the use and application of rigorous education research and build capacity and interest in the field around the world.  This aim and ambition were central motivators for WERA’s new annual.

The World Education Research Association (WERA) is an association of major national, regional, and international specialty research associations dedicated to advancing education research as a scientific and scholarly field. WERA undertakes initiatives that are global in nature and thus transcend what any one association can accomplish in its own country, region, or area of specialization. Member associations work together to address such issues as building capacity and interest in education research, advancing education research policies and practices, and promoting the use and application of education research around the world.
