Author Guidelines

NOTE: CIE CURRENTLY DOES NOT ACCEPT SUBMISSIONS DUE TO ON-GOING INTERNAL RESTRUCTURING. WE EXPECT TO ONCE AGAIN ACCEPT SUBMISSIONS IN AUGUST 2016. UNTIL THEN, WE CONTINUE TO REVIEW, MAKE DECISIONS ON MANUSCRIPTS, AND PUBLISH ACCEPTED MANUSCRIPTS THAT WERE SUBMITTED BEFORE THE SUBMISSION HIATUS. FOR UPDATES PLEASE EMAIL PROFESSOR SHERMAN DORN (Sherman.Dorn@asu.edu), WHO OVERSEES THE TRANSITION PROCESS.

The typical review process leading to final publication for this journal takes about 5-10 months once an article is submitted. All documents must be submitted online through our submission portal located on this web page. You must first create an account with this journal if you wish to submit a manuscript.

Manuscripts must be written in English and in American Psychological Association style 6th edition, including no writing in the passive voice. Format, style, references, and title page must adhere to the guidelines of the APA manual 6th edition. *Documents that are not written in APA style will be returned to the sender for reformatting.

Additionally, all submissions must include a short abstract (150 words maximum). After the abstract, include a list of up to 10 key words that will be useful for indexing and searching.

Manuscripts must be blinded. This means all aspects of your identity must anonymized, beyond just removing your name from the title page and the properties tab of the Word document. References to your institution, self-citations, and self-authored work on the references pages must also be blinded. Failure to blind your manuscript will result in having the document returned to you for correction.

CIE provides a venue for scholarship that takes advantage of several aspects of emerging technologies. Therefore, there is no page limit for utilization of graphics, photographs, video streaming. Other technologies are welcome. However, all graphics and photographs must be sent in *.jpeg or *.gif format.

CIE requests that manuscripts generally be no longer than 40 pages.

*Please refer to the Submission Checklist to ensure you have completed each item. Documents will be returned to the author if they do not meet the journal's submission criteria.

By submitting an article for review, your name will also be added to the list of reviewers for other articles.

 

For manuscripts with multiple authors:

The author who submits the manuscript and serves as the primary contact for the submission, thereby agreeing to the initial submission guidelines, is responsibile for authorizing any changes to the indexing and metadata. Current Issues in Education is not responsibile for adjudicating disputes between authors about authorship and related matters.

If a change in authorship is requested to a member of our staff by the primary contact author before the manuscript is published, CIE will seek the approval of all authors before removing an author's name. At the same time, the primary contact author is the party responsible for authorizing, implementing, and supporting a change in credited authors.  

 

Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).

  2. The submission file is in Microsoft Word or RTF document file format.

  3. All formatting used in the manuscript (including tables, style, references, bibliography) adhere to the American Psychological Association (APA) style 6th edition. (e.g., http://www.apa.org).

  4. The text is double-spaced; uses 1 inch margins; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.

  5. The following items are present and are in APA format: an abstract, keywords, title page, page numbers, and running head.

  6. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.

  7. My article is BLINDED. This means the following items do not appear in the manuscript (on the title page or in the body): author names, author affiliations, correspondence information, etc.

    Specifically, references to your college or funding source, self-citations, and self-authored work on the references pages must also be blinded. (Failure to blind your manuscript will result in having the document returned to you for correction.)

    I have read and followed the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review and have properly blinded my manuscript.

  8. Authors must accurately fill in their personal information and the manuscript's information when registering and submitting a document (upper case letters where appropriate, all author contact information, correct number of authors, author fields of interest and disciplines, keywords, full title, abstract, etc.). Any manuscript data entered when registering and submitting an article will be seen on the Web Page if it is published.

  9. If I do not format my document according to APA 6th edition guidelines, I acknowledge and will be ready to have my manuscript returned to me.

  10. By checking this box, you are stating that you have completed all submission requirements and followed all submission guidelines, especially all of the checklist items. Failure to follow these guidelines will result in an automatic decline of your article.
