AAERI JOURNAL SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
AAERI publishes a peer-reviewed Journal, which is listed in Cabal, as The Journal for the Advancement of Educational Research. Submissions to the Journal are separate from submissions to the conference, and the manuscripts submitted to the Journal are submitted to an independent blind peer-review by at least three members of the editorial review board.
The Journal is published once yearly and includes manuscripts, which promote excellence and seek to bridge educational research across many fields of educational practice and foundational disciplines. The deadline for manuscript submission is August 1.
-Importance: should make an important contribution to the field of educational research.
-Methodological Adequacy: Manuscripts reporting empirical studies should have clearly described designs and methods and formulated findings/conclusions supported by data obtained with valid and reliable measures.
-Abstract: A one-paragraph abstract not to exceed 150 words should accompany the manuscript. The manuscript should also be submitted in Microsoft word, and this copy should include manuscript title, author and co-authors, affiliations, addresses, e-mail address and telephone contact numbers for all authors.
-Preparation of Copy: The manuscript including references and tables should be double-spaced with one-inch margins and in total should not exceed 15 pages. A separate cover sheet should include the title of the article and the name(s) and full academic degrees of the author(s). Choose one author to act as the recipient of all correspondence and include his or her name, address, position, institution, telephone number, and e-mail address with the manuscript.
-Style and References: Manuscript and references should follow the APA Style Six guidelines. All written material, references and tables shall be double-spaced.
-Authors should submit an original manuscript and one blinded email copy. The original manuscript should include author identification data, but there should be no author identification data on the blinded copy.
-Costs: All authors must pay submission fees to cover publication and mailing costs. The lead author will receive two hard copies of the journal. If the authors are submitting more than one manuscript, then separate submission fees are required for each manuscript submitted. These are $150 for the primary author and $55 for each co-author. All authors must be members of AAERI at the time of submission of papers. Membership dues run from January 1 to December 31 of each year. If submitting the manuscript in 2018, each author must pay membership dues for 2018. The senior author of all published papers must maintain membership payments for two years from the date of submission.
-Manuscript Acceptance: Each submission will be blind reviewed by members of the Journal editorial board. The average time for review is three months. If a manuscript is rejected at the time of the initial review, all Journal but not membership fees will be returned to the author(s). If the initial review results in acceptance (with or without required revisions), all payments will be viewed as final and retained by AAERI.
-Submitted manuscripts often require revisions at the time of acceptance. It is expected that authors will make these revisions promptly and to the satisfaction of the Editor of JAER.
-Due Date. All manuscripts must be received by August 1st to be considered for publication in the current issue of the Journal. Authors can appear in only two articles per issue. If an author appears in more than two manuscripts that are accepted for publication, the author must choose the order in which he/she wishes to have the articles published, and they will be spaced out over Journal issues accordingly. The journal is a highly recognized scholarly publication that advances research in the multi-disciplinary fields of education and related fields.
