About the Journal

The Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy (CJEAP) is a peer reviewed online journal based at the College of Education, University of Saskatchewan, Canada.

The Journal seeks to publish thoughtful work that raises important questions and promotes debates on problems of educational practice and policy. Submissions can vary in length, but normally should be about 7,000 words; both longer and shorter pieces will also be considered. The journal does, from time to time, publish "Special Issues," which are collections of articles on specific topics of current interest in Canadian educational administration and policy, edited by Guest Editors in association with the CJEAP editorial board.

The articles that it accepts for review must address administrative or policy issues relevant to education and educational systems in Canada. Comparative articles as well as expositions on educational administration in relation to sociology, philosophy, history, and theory are welcomed. It is a forum for articles addressing the administration of schools and higher education institutions, Indigenous educational contexts, and the education of adult learners. CJEAP accepts contributions from scholars, policy makers, graduate students, practitioners, and researchers in education and related fields.

 

To Submit a Manuscript

Note that to be considered, all manuscripts must be written in APA style (6th edition) and be relatively free of typographical errors.

Reviews of manuscripts for CJEAP follow a two-step process. First, the article is assessed for general appropriateness by the editorial team of CJEAP. Assuming that it is generally appropriate, the article is then sent for external blind review. The entire process takes about 8-10 weeks, depending on the time of year and the flow of other manuscripts.
