The British Educational Research Association (BERA) is 40 years old. To mark this occasion, they have issued a publication called 40@40, which gathers together 40 landmark studies from the last 40 years, which are related to educational research, policy and practice. The publication also contains a commentary on educational developments of the last 40 years, allowing readers to place the chosen studies into the context of the time in which they were published.
