Association of Mexican American Educators Journal
SCOPE: The Association of Mexican American Educators (AMAE) Journal addresses interdiscplinary research and academic issues of importance in the education of Mexican-American/Latinx children and families to help inform those working in the field of educational studies. In addition, we hope this research is of service to other stakeholders, such as administrators, policymakers, teachers, civic leaders, grassroots organizers, and parents. In this way, the AMAE Journal is organized and focused to make an immediate impact at different educational levels, apprising different constituencies—from academia to policymakers to school districts to communities—on the conditions of Mexican-American/Latinx students and their families.
It is important to note that Mexican-American/Latinx children are the fastest growing population and majority student population in school districts across the nation. It is imperative to understand the needs, challenges, and strengths of Mexican-American/Latinx youth and their families to improve their educational conditions and attainment.
All research topics related to the education of Mexican-American/Latinx students are welcome. These include topics related to immigration and education, the achievement gap, bilingual education, parent engagement, ESL/EL education, equity and social justice, critical theories (i.e. CRT, Critical Pedagogy), literacy and content area instruction, curriculum and instruction, policy development, teacher education, the sociology of education, educational anthropology, among others. If you have any questions about a specific manuscript and its content, you may contact the editors to inquire about the suitability of its submission.
PUBLISHING: The AMAE Journal is a national, refereed, peer-reviewed journal with an acceptance rate between 19%-30%. A distinguished editorial advisory board provides counsel to the AMAE Journal editors (see AMAE Journal Editorial Advisory Board). The AMAE Journal is published triannually. It publishes one open issue, one theme issue, and one invited issue per year. Manuscripts for the open issue are accepted on an ongoing basis. Each issue aspires to contain: Featured Articles, Essays, Book Reviews, and Poems. The AMAE Journal provides immediate open access to its interdisciplinary content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. It is also indexed in the Educational Resources Information Clearinghouse (ERIC) database, EBSCO, Google Scholar, and Cabell's Directory.
The Association of Mexican American Educators (AMAE) Journal is published three times a year by AMAE Inc., 634 South Spring Street, Suite 602, Los Angeles, CA 90014. Currently, one of the three annual issues is also published as a hardcopy and distributed to AMAE members.
AMAE Journal Moves from ASU to UTSA
During the fall 2014, the AMAE Journal moved from ASU (Arizona State University) to UTSA (The University of Texas at San Antonio)...
The Association of Mexican American Educators (AMAE) Journal transitioned to the University of Texas—San Antonio (UTSA) during the fall of 2014. We would like to thank Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College at Arizona State University for hosting the AMAE Journal since 2011. Likewise, we would like to send our appreciation to the College of Education at UTSA for agreeing to support the AMAE Journal. We cannot think of a more appropriate higher education institution to continue supporting the important work of this journal.
Further, Dr. Patricia Sánchez, UTSA, will take on the role of AMAE Journal lead editor. Please join us in congratulating Dr. Sánchez in this new role, who previously served as the Journal's Associate Editor for two years. Dr. Sánchez is a recognized scholar and leader in the field of Mexican-American and Latina/o education, and under her leadership, we are confident that the AMAE Journal will continue to grow and make an impact in the field of Mexican-American and Latina/o education.
In addition, Dr. Oscar Jimenez-Castellanos will continue to serve as co-editor until December 31, 2014. Thus, we will be adding two associate editors to the editorial team, hopefully by January 2015. One of them will also be from UTSA (TBD).
Thank you for your continued support of the AMAE Journal.
