Author Guidelines

We plan to have four sections of the journal. When submitting a contribution, please indicate the section for which your submission is intended.

  • full-length articles (normally 2,000-3,500 words). These will typically report a completed investigation or offer a critical review of a number of investigations that share a common theme or topic.

  • shorter articles and notes (about 300-750 words). These might describe work in progress, raise issues arising from such work, or discuss general issues related to methodologies, ethics, collaboration, etc.

  • book reviews (about 750-1000 words). These will typically provide a sense of the main arguments and presentation style of the author. In addition, reviews will take the perspective of a critical friend in terms of the author's assumptions, arguments and evidence, drawing, where possible, on other work on the same topic or issue.

  • resources for teacher-research. These notices will keep teacher-researchers informed of upcoming events, opportunities, and resources.
