-- Volume 193, Number 2 will feature articles on
the theme, Technology in Education.

Manuscripts should be submitted by February 1,
2013. The issue will be published in June 2013.

We invite manuscripts on the effective use of
technology in elementary and secondary
education, and in pre-service and in-service
teacher education. Of particular interest are
manuscripts on the following topics: integration
of technology to improve other areas of
STEM learning; new literacies; adaptive teaching
and learning for students with special
needs and for those who struggle; innovative
approaches for students for whom English
is an additional language; and refining practice through teacher education.

The mission of the Journal of Education is to
disseminate knowledge in the service of
practice and to expedite the integration of
research, theory, and practice in education.
Researchers, scholars, teachers, administrators,
specialists, and advanced graduate
students are invited to submit manuscripts. Three
types of articles will be considered:
Reports of original research, explications of
theory, and reflections on education. Each
manuscript should inform the education of PK-12
learners, or pre-service and in-service
teachers and other professionals in the field.
The manuscript must include a discussion of
implications for practice in an educational setting.

Reports of Original Research should include a
review of the relevant literature, a
description of the methodology, a summary of the findings, and a discussion of
implications for practice in an educational setting.

Explications of Theory should begin with a clear
explanation of a theory that informs
practice, a description of the historical
context, and a justification based on the
The paper should conclude with implications for
practice in an educational setting.

Reflections by scholars and professionals who are
informed observers of education in
classrooms and schools should provide critical
analysis and insights regarding effective
practice. Experienced researchers may offer an
historic analysis of a significant topic of
inquiry and the effects on the field, as well as
insights into implications for practice.
Occasionally, distinguished scholars selected by
the Dean of the School of Education, in
consultation with the Editor, will be invited to write reflections.

Manuscript Submission

The manuscript should be submitted as an
attachment in electronic form in Microsoft
Word format to: The text should be
approximately 20 pages long, double
spaced, in 12 pt. Times New Roman typeface, and
introduced with a 100-word abstract.
There should be a one- inch margin on all sides of an 8ó - x 11- inch page. The
manuscript should conform to the style
specifications of the American Psychological
Association. The Concise Rules of APA Style, Sixth Edition, published by the
Association in 2009, is the recommended source.

Consistent with the policy of blind review, the
author(s)' name(s) should be listed only
on a cover sheet that will be removed before the
manuscript is sent to the reviewers. The
cover sheet should include: the author(s)'
name(s) and institutional affiliation(s), the
author's mailing address, telephone number, fax number, and e-mail address.

Acknowledgment of cooperating scholars or
professionals and funding sources should be
added to the end of the manuscript. The first
author will receive a notice of receipt of the
manuscript within two weeks and the reviewers'
response within three months. Four
types of decisions are made: Accept as submitted,
Accept with revisions, Revise and
resubmit, or Not accepted. Upon acceptance, the
authors will be expected to agree to
assign the rights to the copyright to the Journal
of Education with the authors retaining
broad duplication and distribution rights for
teaching and related educational uses.


All manuscripts will be judged on the
significance of the content, the inclusion of a
discussion of implications for practice in an
educational setting, and the clarity and
cohesion of the text.

Reports of Original Research will be judged, as
well, on the significance of the inquiry,
the rigor of the methodology, the validity of the
findings and the implications. These
articles may include a minimum number of clear
effective tables and/or figures placed at
the end of the text.

Explications of Theory will be judged, as well,
on the significance of the theory, the
clarity of the explication, the quality of the
justification, and the validity of the

Reflections will be judged, as well, on the
quality of the critical analysis and reflections,
and the validity of the implications.
