In 2008 we ended the year with an editorial speculating about the changing times facing teacher education in Australia and in many locations around the world. One of the changes we referred to was the research accountability exercise known as ERA (Excellence in Research for Australia). As editors we were curious about the impact this might have on journal and paper submissions, in particular. For this reason we are keenly observing the educational community for reactions and feedback that is likely to reflect on our work as editors. We now feel it timely to share with you some of our observations from the year 2009.
