Educator Perspectives Journal: Winter 2023

Call for Submissions to EPJ

The editorial team of Educator Perspectives invites manuscripts for potential publication in the next issue.  We seek articles that reflect and showcase a vibrant community of practice across many educational contexts. 

Theme: Open Call

The editorial team of Educator Perspectives invites manuscripts for potential publication in the Winter 2023 Issue. We seek articles that reflect and showcase a vibrant community of practice across many educational contexts. The education landscape continues to endure dramatic shifts; the last two years especially were a time of tremendous change and upheaval. Educators at all levels and situations have endeavored to meet the demands of change by developing new strategies, materials, perspectives, and in some cases, new attitudes. Many of us find ourselves advocating for new paradigms in education. We would like to invite contributions for our Winter 2023 issue that reflect what is current, relevant, innovative, and insightful across the educational spectrum.

This is an open call without a specific theme that provides an opportunity for the intentional discussion of the issues on the front burner for educators. We would like to take this moment to explore your challenges or recent successes. We hope to further equip our community with research or best practices that will amplify the cultivation, sustainability, and stewardship of our profession. We value a variety of responses and insights into the shifting educational environment.

Submissions Options: 

Submissions should include works in research-based articles including action/classroom research, and qualitative and quantitative research. Essays such as personal reflections, inspirational annotations, classroom practice, interviews, or program descriptions are also welcome. Submissions should be in proper APA seventh edition format. References, tables, and appendices do not count against the page limit. All proposals and accepted manuscripts will be subject to editorial review. 

Submissions for the Winter 2023 issue are due by September 3, 2022
