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.
The submission has not been previously published and is not currently under consideration elsewhere.
The submission file is in Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF formats.
The submission follows the most recent American Psychological Association Style Guide or APA Style Guide.
Where available, “digital object identifier system” or dois per APA specifications are added to each reference in the submission’s references.
The text is in Palatino 12 pt font single-spaced; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed at the end of the manuscript.
A blinded copy of the manuscript is uploaded that removes all identifying marks from the submission. Additionally, an un-blinded coverage page is uploaded with the Author’s or Authors’ identifying information followed by brief autobiographic sketches (2-3 sentences). Follow the link for the guidelines for a Blind Review: Ensuring a Blind Review.
All first submissions are accompanied by a Letter to the Editor that briefly explains the central issue or topic of the piece and its importance to the field of curriculum studies. In addition, the author may want to describe something of the submission’s history and the ways in which it can be seen to fit into a larger body of work.
All revised submissions are submitted as marked up manuscripts, with all changes documented, and are accompanied by a detailed Letter to the Editor that explains how each of the reviewer’s suggestions was variously integrated into the manuscript or addressed. Where authors disagree with particular suggestions for revision, they will explain their reasons for doing so. Revised manuscripts cannot be reviewed in the absence of a clear explanation and record of the edits that have or have not been made in response to reviewer comments.
The Letter to the Editor should be uploaded as its own supplementary file during the submission process.
