Brief history Issues in Educational Research is a refereed academic research journal founded by the Western Australian Institute for Educational Research in 1991. From 1995, IIER has been published jointly by Australia's Institutes for Educational Research in New South Wales, Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia.

IIER was published in print format from 1991 until the end of 2007. In December 2007, at the time of publishing IIER 17(2), we announced it to be the last printed issue, and that in future IIER would be online only, with open access. Currently IIER is published in three issues per year (in some years prior to 2003, only one issue was published). From 2008, articles are available in PDF format as well as HTML format.

In September 2004 the Queensland Journal of Educational Research merged with Issues in Educational Research. A full QJER archive is now in development for IIER's website, to recognise and preserve the substantial contribution that QJER made to scholarly publishing of educational research in Australia, from its inception in 1985 until its final volume in 2003.

Website publication of IIER commenced during 1997, when Volumes 1-7 (1991-1997) were placed on IIER's first website, kindly provided by the Academic Services Unit at Murdoch University. In August 2001, website sponsorship was taken up by the Faculty of Education at Curtin University of Technology. We record with appreciation Curtin University's five years of website sponsorship for IIER and WAIER. On 18 May 2006 IIER moved to a new website under its own domain name, http://www.iier.org.au/, sponsored by WAIER.

During 1995-2007 subscriptions to the printed version of IIER were a part of the membership benefits for members of the Institutes for Educational Research in NSW, SA, NT and WA. In 2008, following the retirement of the printed version, the use of paid subscriptions ended. However, any reader may elect to obtain a free subscription in the form of an emailing list to notify subscribers about the online publication of each new issue and invitations to contribute to special issues [IIER Alerts].

IIER's 2010 ranking in the Australian Research Council's Tiers for the Australian Ranking of Journals is "Tier B", although IIER declined to endorse the premises underlying the "Four tiers" [see IIER Editorial 20(3) for discussion].
