Mind, Brain, and Education is recognized as best new journal
Date:2/11/2008

Malden, M.A., February 11, 2008 Wiley-Blackwell, the scientific, technical, medical, and scholarly publishing business of John Wiley & Sons, Inc. (NYSE: JWa), (NYSE: JWb), today announced that Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) was named the 2007 Best New Journal-Social Sciences & Humanities by the Association of American Publishers Professional & Scholarly Publishing (PSP) Division. Each year, the PSP selects distinguished works in more than 30 disciplines in order to recognize publishers, editors, and authors who contribute pioneering works of research.

Published on behalf of the International Mind, Brain, and Education Society, MBE is a unique and innovative journal that provides a forum for basic and applied research that unites biology, cognitive science, and education.

Recent growth in brain-based educational practices and an increased emphasis on research-based curricula have fostered a need for a dynamic peer-reviewed journal that presents educational research grounded in biology and cognitive science, said Kurt Fischer, Editor of MBE and Director of the Mind, Brain, and Education Program at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Such research will help build a strong foundation for educational practice for all children worldwide.

Articles in MBE explore how brain, genetic, and cognitive processes relate to learning and development; how research and practice can inform each other in biology, cognitive science, and education; how mind, brain, and education can be taught effectively; and how education can be firmly grounded in research.

MBE catalyzes professional relationships that are essential to debunking questionable brain-based claims and improving research-based practice in education, said Dr. Fischer. This kind of research allows policy makers and practitioners to base their decisions about educational practices and institutions on empirical evidence rather than opinions, fashions, and ideologies.

Prior to the publication of MBE, there was no scholarly resource for this interdisciplinary work and little to no cross-citing of relevant neuroscience and education research, said Eric A. Swanson, Senior Vice President, Wiley-Blackwell. The launch of this journal allows us to explore a completely new and exciting field that will have a profound impact on improving education.

The response to MBE has been phenomenal. In addition to the PSP Award, the journal debut and a study demonstrating that generalist genes are responsible for a wide range of learning disorders were reported by Newsweek, Chronicle of Higher Education, Medical News Today, and United Press International, added Dr. Fischer. He also congratulated Wiley-Blackwell on the award, stating that Wiley-Blackwell has been remarkably helpful in getting the society and the journal going, supporting us in ways that I did not know were possible, and it is greatly appreciated.
