The Center for Leadership, Equity and Research (CLEAR) has launched “The CLEARvoz Journal,” a quarterly peer-reviewed journal focused on equity issues in education. The online, scholarly journal seeks to promote research in elementary, secondary and postsecondary schools with articles that address a range of topics including advocacy, equity, mentoring, diversity and engagement.
The journal was founded by Drs. Kenneth Magdaleno and Nancy Akhavan, faculty members of Fresno State’s Kremen School of Education and Human Development who both worked as P-12 administrators.
“Because of our background, we believe there is a need for dialog between P-12 and higher education,” Magdaleno said. “This journal can be a bridge to put education practitioners in dialog with researchers.”
The inaugural issue examines Southeast Asian women in K-12 leadership, high school students with autism, establishing training for counselors and enhancing teacher training programs. The center is now accepting papers for consideration in the next edition, which will focus on student discipline and school culture.
As a recognized peer-reviewed journal, “The CLEARvoz Journal” features an editorial board made up of faculty at Fresno State, California State University, Bakersfield and California State University, Channel Islands. According to Magdaleno, more than 1,100 people are on the current mailing list to receive the journal and he expects that number to grow with subsequent issues.
