Journaux académiques sur l'évaluation

American Journal of Evaluation

Description: The American Journal of Evaluation (AJE) publishes original papers about the methods, theory, practice, and findings of evaluation. The general goal of AJE is to present the best work in and about evaluation, in order to improve the knowledge base and practice of its readers. Because the field of evaluation is diverse, with different intellectual traditions, approaches to practice, and domains of application, the papers published in AJE will reflect this diversity. Nevertheless, preference is given to papers that are likely to be of interest to a wide range of evaluators and that are written to be accessible to most readers.

Evaluation Review: A Journal of Applied Social Research

Description: Evaluation Review aims to advance the practice of evaluation and to publish the results of high quality evaluations. The Review focuses on rigorous evaluation of public programs and policies across a range of types of evaluation (process, implementation, impact), policy areas, and academic disciplines, all to foster evidence based policy. Impact evaluation—in particular, but not exclusively, random assignment—is an area of focus. Papers of interest include: (i) methodological discussions of the design and analysis of evaluations, including surveys of current practice and emerging issues; (ii) results of evaluations, especially when the evaluation develops new methods or applies emerging methods; and (iii) broader perspectives on evaluation such as the role of rigorous impact evaluation in the broader evaluation context, contracting for and disseminating results of evaluations, and the inter-relation of evaluation and policy.
