In September 2004 the Queensland Journal of Educational Research merged with Issues in Educational Research. A full archive is now in development, to recognise and preserve the substantial contribution that QJER made to scholarly publishing of educational research in Australia, from its inception in 1985, as Queensland Researcher, until its final volume in 2003. The notes below are a part of the archival record and are not current advice about QJER and QR or its publisher, QIER. For current advice please see [IIER Home]
