Journal of Education Human Resources

The Journal of Education Human Resources (JEHR), formerly the Journal of School Public Relations (JSPR), is a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal that serves as a platform for research, analysis, case studies, and field-based commentary on human resource issues (e.g., professional development, leadership, evaluation, compensation, hiring) in the education sector. The journal is peer-reviewed by top scholars in the field, with a 40% publication acceptance rate, and an aim to leverage the capacity of peer-reviewed research to help address some of the most pressing human and fiscal resource problems in education. As a “user-inspired” journal, JEHR publishes articles that are a blend of scholarly, empirical, and field-based reflection addressing contemporary human resource and finance issues in education, spanning across the P-20 continuum. JEHR provides researchers, policymakers, practitioners, faculty, and consultants access to cutting-edge ideas and current knowledge, based on the evolving needs of the field. Given the interrelated nature of funding and human resource issues, the journal also has a special focus on topics related to education finance. In addition, NEFA hosts an annual special education finance issue of JEHR.
