SFU Educational Review

The SFU Educational Review is an online journal operated by education grad students. Since its inception in 2007, its focus has been to highlight master and doctoral research in education. For grad students, this is a great opportunity to turn your conference presentation or course papers into published articles. For alumni, this is a great opportunity to publish a paper that draws on your dissertation and professional work.
