Guidelines for Authors
The International Journal of Research on Service-Learning in Teacher Education publishes manuscripts that enhance understanding of research, theory, and practice. As an international journal, the articles provide a forum for exchanging insights throughout the world. The journal publishes manuscripts that advance scholarship on service-learning in teacher education through descriptions of empirical research, synthesis of research, analysis of policy, or discussion of theoretical positions. Although articles do not focus solely on description of a program, practitioner research is featured. The journal also publishes book reviews.
Manuscripts must be original work of the author(s) and not be submitted simultaneously for publication in other journals or books.
Manuscripts must adhere to the guidelines of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA), 6th edition.
Manuscripts should be submitted as a Word document, double-spaced in 12-point font, with one-inch margins, and numbered pages. No length requirements exist, but manuscripts should be written clearly and concisely.
Tables, figures, and illustrations should not be embedded in the manuscript, but the placement in the manuscript should be indicated.
All manuscripts will be reviewed by three reviewers. Specific references which would identify the author(s) should be deleted for the blind-review process.
In addition to the title page of the manuscript, submissions should include an additional title page which lists the author(s) and designates the following information for each author: email address, phone number(s), and address. If the first author is not the corresponding author, that should be indicated.
Manuscripts must include an abstract of 100-200 words. The abstract should provide the major objectives, methods used, findings, and conclusions. The abstract should not include references or footnotes.
