Submission Guidelines

The journal welcomes submissions of unpublished research papers, critical essays, and book reviews from all disciplinary and inter-disciplinary frameworks. Submissions will be evaluated based on the timeliness and relevance of topics addressed, the soundness of research methods employed, and the ability of the writing to clearly convey information to a wide variety of academic disciplines and education practitioners. Material is subject to editing to enhance clarity, concision, and style. The editors will process and post submissions as they are received.

We welcome:

  • Articles (not to exceed 30 pages)
  • Review essays (10-20 pages)
  • Interviews (10-20 pages)
  • Book reviews (not to exceed 1100 words)

The main text must be submitted as a stand-alone file (in Microsoft Word, TeX, or RTF) without a title page, abstract, page numbers, or other headers or footers.

The title, abstract, and author information should be input according to the directions on the site.

Abstracts (400 words or less) should be submitted in plain text and should not include information identifying the author(s) or their institutional affiliations.

All submissions except for book reviews must include an abstract before they will be considered for review.
