Frequently Asked Questions


What topics do you accept?

We accept all educational topics. No educational topic is off limits.

When are manuscripts due?

For the fall issue, manuscripts are due July 31. For the spring issue, manuscripts are due November 30.

What is the review process?

Each manuscript is given to two outside reviewers. All reviews are blind; the reviewers receive no identifying information about your manuscript. Only the editor knows who are the reviewers. Once the reviewers send their responses, the editor compiles them and sends the responses to the lead author. At no time will you know who are the reviewers.

How long does it take to get a response?

Upon receipt of your manuscript, you will receive an immediate reply. This reply will state that either your manuscript will go to the reviewers or it will be returned to you for revisions. Once it is sent to the reviewers, our goal is to respond to you within 4-6 weeks. However, this timeline is contingent on the reviewers.

Who do I contact for more information?
