This new journal will provide counselor educators, researchers, and other mental health practitioners with outcome research and program evaluation practices for work with individuals across the lifespan.

  • treatment efficacy
  • clinical diagnosis
  • program evaluation
  • research design
  • outcome measure reviews

"Members of AACE share a passion and commitment to the advancement of measurement and evaluation," said Danica G. Hays, C.O.R.E. editor. "This new journal will be an important voice promoting the development and dissemination of knowledge relating to the concerns of those counseling professionals who need the research that will be published there in their daily work."

SAGE also publishes Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development with the Association in Counseling and Education.

"We're very pleased to partner with the Association for Assessment in Counseling and Education to bring this important new resource to life," said Jayne Marks, SAGE Vice-President and Editorial Director, Journals.
