The International Reading Association’s Content Area Reading Special Interest Group (SIG) seeks an editor for its journal, effective June 1, 2012.
The Content Area Reading SIG was formed to provide a forum where research and practice related to content area reading can be presented and discussed for the purpose of promoting reading comprehension in all disciplines and at all grade levels.
The Content Area Reading SIG publishes the Journal of Content Area Reading, an international refereed professional journal. Articles published deal with literacy research and instruction in the content areas for preschool through high school and for college/university instruction.
Beginning in 2002, the Journal of Content Area Reading has been published approximately once per year as a traditional print journal. In addition, beginning with Vol. 7, the Journal of Content Area Reading is displayed in EBSCO's Education Research Complete online database.
