CJTR Executive Editor Jim Parsons Steps Down

Dr. Jim Parsons, who has edited the Canadian Journal for Teacher Research (CJTR) since its inception has retired from this role effective 2019-01-01. Dr. Parsons’s leadership with this journal has been instrumental to its success, and we both wish him well and offer sincere thanks for his support of the Journal and its purpose.

As we take stock of the Journal – its achievement and future potential – we are pausing publication of new research and materials.

We will explore the restructuring of the Editorial Board and the editorial responsibilities in the light of the rapidly changing landscape of Canadian teachers work and action research in the field of education. We will sustain access to the many valuable research resources here, which are substantial, until we are ready to announce the next stage of the development of the Journal.
