REVIEWERS NEEDED  Peer reviews are the lifeblood of any academic journal. The CJE is currently looking to expand its pool of reviewers. We have numerous high-quality manuscripts that we would love to publish, but we cannot do so without peer reviews. You can help us ensure that manuscripts are dealt with promptly by enrolling as a CJE reviewer <http://www.cje-rce.ca/> If you are already enrolled as a reviewer, please log into the site to update your areas of interest. The CJE screens manuscripts before they are sent out for review, meaning that you will only receive manuscripts that we consider meet our high editorial standards.

The journal publishes issues on early, lifelong, and Francophone education, and rural, aboriginal, cultural, pre-service, and inclusive perspectives.

The Canadian Journal of Education is presented by the Canadian Society for the Study of Education, the major national voice for those who create educational knowledge in Canada.  For more information on CSSE, visit http://www.csse-scee.ca.Follow the Canadian Journal of Education on Facebook or Twitter.
