Author Guidelines

Article Submission Criteria for Educator Perspectives

All submissions must include a cover page of contact information to include each author’s name, title, institution, email address, mailing address, phone number, key contact person, article title (15-word limit), and an abstract (100 words or less).  Articles are required to be within 1,000 to 3,000 words. Please submit the article as a separate document void of identifying information (for the blind review process).

Articles must be submitted via email to epjournal@angelo.edu, as a word document format by Sept 3, 2021.  Submissions should consist of two documents- a cover letter and the article submission.  Email should include “Educator Perspectives-Submission” as the email title.  One submission per individual.  Incomplete submissions will not be reviewed.

Submission Guidelines:

Submissions will be evaluated with respect to the following criteria and successful articles tend to speak to these criteria: 

  • Theme. The proposed manuscript should meet the expectations of the theme for the Fall 2021 Issue.
  • Relevance. The proposed manuscript should thoroughly review a significant and important research area within education.
  • Viability. The proposal should represent an achievable project within the tight time constraints required.  More detail on the timeline is provided below.
  • Scope of Interest.  Papers of broad interest to scholars in a variety of specialty areas are greatly preferred.
  • Organization and Coherence.  The proposal should follow a logical structure, read clearly, and thoroughly represent the available research.
  • Insight for Future Work. The proposal should convey important implications for future scholars.
  • Timeliness/Contribution. Reviews should be on topics for which no recent reviews exist, and the proposal should emphasize how the review will contribute to knowledge in that area.

General Information:

All submissions are reviewed by the Editorial Team and external reviewers.  Each proposal is blind reviewed.  Author information is not supplied to the reviewer.

Submissions should be focused, well organized, effectively developed, concise, and appropriate for the readers. The style should be direct, clear, readable, and free from gender, political, patriotic, or religious bias.  The Editorial Team reserves the right to cancel a submission due to noncompliance at any point.  For more detailed information, please contact, epjournal@angelo.edu.
