The Journal of Classroom Interaction (JCI) has been self-published since its founding in 1965. The Journal began its publication as the Classroom Interaction Newsletter by Dr. Anita Simon of Temple University in Philadelphia, with editorial adviser Dr. Ned Flanders. Dr. Simon indicated in 1965 that the original purpose of the Newsletter was to meet the need to share, discuss and disseminate new ideas regarding research methodology, and variables that generated new knowledge about classroom interaction (Freiberg, 1977). The journal was passed from Anita Simon to Myra and David Sadker at American University who began the transition into a journal format. In 1977, the Journal was passed to Jerome Freiberg at the University of Houston, College of Education, where it currently housed. During this time an international review board was established and continues Recently, the European Science Foundation has recognized JCI in its list of quality international research journals.
