Sammanfattning (abstract):
This is a review of the European Educational Research Journal since the start in 2002 and up to 2014. Three questions were put forwards: what are the ambitions with the journal, how has the journal developed over time, and what are its possible futures? The review is based on minutes and emails from the late 1990s up to 2014, as well as editorial materials. Downloads and citations of EERJ articles were analyzed in order to capture the impact of the journal. The themes of the journal numbers were analyzed concerning their main research objects. The results presented a picture of a successful journal with highly increasing numbers of subscriptions and downloads of articles. The inquiries also presented a journal that was increasingly more European concerning editorial matters and authorship. Considering journal contents and research objects that are in focus, the EERJ is presenting productive and significant research on European education. However, articles analyzing European educational research as a specific focus are less frequent. Based on these results it was concluded that there is a need for the EERJ to further develop the focus on research on the Europeanization of Educational Research, to consider the opportunities for the EERA networks to produce handbooks concerning their specialties, and for the EERA to develop a European Educational Research Observatory to improve research communication and reflexivity and by that further advance European Educational Research.
