Beginning this month, Wiley-Blackwell will manage the production and distribution of The Reading Teacher, Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy
, and Reading Research Quarterly
. IRA will continue to provide each journal with peer-reviewed, research-based content through its professional journal editors and review boards. All copyrights of journal content will continue to be owned by IRA.
What does this mean for IRA members? Print subscribers can expect the same high-quality IRA journals to be delivered each month, although the September print issue will arrive in mailboxes a little later than usual. In the coming months, online publication of the journals will transition from the Association's website (www.reading.org
