Author Guidelines

Prepare manuscripts according to the most recent Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (7th ed.) (https://apastyle.apa.org/products/publication-manual-7th-edition). Format manuscripts in Microsoft Word and blind for anonymous peer review; manuscripts not blinded or appropriately formatted will be returned. In a transmittal letter, authors must certify that the manuscript is not being considered by another publisher. All empirical studies must document: (1) the use of accepted ethical protocols for research with human subjects; and (2) site-specific approvals, including research and/or IRB approvals required by Native nations, tribes, or bands as well as schools and school districts, where appropriate. Please use the term most appropriate to the Indigenous group or people to whom the manuscript refers. American Indian/Alaska Native, Native American, Native Hawaiian, and Indigenous are acceptable terms when referring to Indigenous peoples of the United States and Hawaiʻi.

All manuscripts must be submitted electronically to jaie@asu.edu. Submit the manuscript as one Word document (do not send a pdf). In separate Word documents, provide: (1) abstract (150 words); (2) biographical statement(s) for each author (50 words each); and (3) contact information for each author, including author name, affiliation, email address, postal address, and phone number. Do not include author name(s) on the manuscript.

Feature-length manuscripts (research studies, scholarly essays, original reviews of literature, interpretive/theoretical studies) should be 7,500-8,000 words total, including references, endnotes, tables, and figures.

Reports from the Field: (original scholarly manuscripts providing descriptive, evaluative, and/or policy-oriented analyses of innovative education models and practices) should be no more than 5,000 words, including references, endnotes, tables, and figures.

Manuscripts will be considered throughout the year and, if accepted, will be published in any of the three issues at the direction of the editorial staff.
