Ivor Goodson is the founding editor of the Journal of Education Policy. This was set up in 1995 in collaboration with Stephen J. Ball. The major concern of the journal is to provide findings from work in the field of Education Policy. Ball and Goodson are currently editing a book on some of the major articles that appeared in the journal over the past decade, to be published by Routledge in 2006.

Ivor is also the European editor of the journal Identity, which is the house journal of the Society for Identity Formation, founded in 2001. The journal provides a considerable number of articles about life history and qualititative methodologies as well as more substantive studies on issues of identity.
