Author Guidelines

Author Guidelines

Articles submitted to the Journal of Educational Thought (JET) may address any form of systematic enquiry in all fields related to or associated with education whether in Canada, North America, or any part of world.  The journal is particularly interested in educational arguments and writing that discuss controversial topics.

Submission of a manuscript presupposes that the manuscript  has not been previously published,  is in press, or is under consideration elsewhere. Prior to publication, authors will assign their copyright to JET by signing a standard copyright consent form.

JET does not charge a fee for publication of an author’s article. If a manuscript’s topic fits the journal's requirements the manuscript will be sent to at least two outside peer reviewers assigned by the Editor. The Editor will study the reviews and then decide whether to accept the manuscript, reject it, or request revisions, or perhaps ask for further reviews.

Submission should be via email to "JET@ucalgary.ca" in  Microsoft Word format. Submission can be made at any time throughout the year; there is no deadline for submission. If an article is accepted, it will be published in one of the upcoming issues.
