Beyond JEE: Finding publication venues to get your message to the ‘right’ audience Very few publications exist outlining the different publishing opportunities withinengineering education as a discipline. Most researchers think immediately of the Journal ofEngineering Education (JEE) and as the primary publication associated with the AmericanSociety for Engineering Education it is a logical first thought. The questions arise with new graduate students and young faculty who are still trying tolearn the scope of engineering education as a research discipline and need to identify possiblepublication venues. A fairly complete list of possible publication venues has been generated andis maintained by CASEE(http://engineeringeducationlist.pbworks.com/w/page/27614165/Engineering EducationResearch Publication Venues) and is a great starting point. It offers broad categorization, butdoes not provide additional information or any ratings of the publications. A systematic reviewof the potential publication venues, including raking factors such as impact factor, SJR, and h-index, acceptance rate, review procedures, copyright expectations, and subject focus will all beconsidered. Research has been done that identifies patterns of where engineering education researchhas been published and by whom as part of the iKNEER project (www.ikneer.org), which canhelp an individual find possible publication venues. While this serves a need and is helpful infinding communities of researchers around particular topics, it is not at the core an evaluation ofpublication venues. The results of top publications will be presented in several categories and the database ofgathered information will be publically available for users to create different groupings orrankings based on criteria most important to them.
