Cadmo is an international journal of educational research, assessment and evaluation. Each issue of the journal contains approximately up to 7 articles (half in English, half in other European languages) peer-reviewed according to the ISI standards, brief reports of research in progress, reviews of books on educational research published since the previous edition and Sassi - three short ironic notes about education policy and assessment. As AEA-Europe has now adopted Cadmo as its official journal, it will be guest editor of a special edition which will be published once every two years. Cadmo is an ISI publication listed in the Social Sciences citation index since 2007. The journal takes its name from the mythical hero Cadmo who came from Tirus (Tyre), in Phoenicia, and was credited with introducing the alphabet in Greece. Protected by Athena, the goddess of wisdom, he killed a serpent guarding a sacred spring by throwing stones at it. Cadmo’s association with the introduction of the alphabet makes him an appropriate figure for the name of the journal, as the alphabet is the first tool of education. In addition, he came from Phoenicia and thus represents the complex interconnections that lay behind any European culture. Being under the protection of the goddess of wisdom, he can also be seen as a symbolic champion of education against the threat of ignorance and prejudice represented by the serpent. The ironic notes Sassi refer to the stones Cadmo used to fight the serpent.
