Published in cooperation with the University Council for Educational Administration
Educational Administration Quarterly (EAQ) uses an electronic submission and review process. Manuscripts should be submitted at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/eaq, where authors will be required to set up an online account in the SAGETRACK system powered by ScholarOne.
Ordinarily, manuscripts should be 25 to 40 pages in length. All tables should be included in the electronic file. Figures may be submitted in separate electronic files, preferably as TIFF or JPEG images, although we can accept most other formats. Figures must be of sufficient resolution for high-end printing: 1200 dpi for line art, 300 dpi for grayscale, and 600 dpi for color.
Manuscripts should follow the style of the 6th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA). Authors should review the section in the manual on Self-Plagiarism. All copy should be typed, double-spaced in Times New Roman 12-point font with notes, references, tables, and figures appearing at the end of the manuscript per APA style.
Each manuscript should include a structured abstract, similar to those described by Mosteller, Nave, and Miech in the January/February 2004 Educational Researcher Commentary, "Why We Need a Structured Abstract in Education Research." The structured abstract for empirical manuscripts should include very brief subheaded sections such as Purpose, Research Methods/Approach (e.g., Setting, Participants, Research Design, Data Collection and Analysis), Findings, and Implications for Research and Practice. Nonempirical or conceptual manuscripts should use subheads appropriate to the conceptual argument or position promoted or discussed (e.g., Purpose, Proposed Conceptual Argument or Model, Implications). Including section heads, abstracts should not exceed 250 words. Additionally, five key words or phrases should appear after the abstract along with an indication of the type of article (e.g., empirical paper, conceptual paper).
Manuscripts should include a cover sheet with the title, author’s name, address, phone number, fax number, and e-mail address, along with a brief biographical statement (2-3 sentences). If the article was authored by more than one person, coauthors’ names, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and biographical statements should also be included. However, to assure appropriate blind review, the author’s name or identifying information should NOT appear in headers, footers, reference list, or other portions of the manuscript text; instead, information in text or references that would identify the author should be replaced with the word "Author" in lieu of the author’s name or identifying information.
From the Field Submissions
In addition to its regular blind refereed empirical or conceptual manuscripts, the EAQ editorial staff reviews and accepts other work for inclusion in the From the Field section of the journal. These works may include highlights of award-winning dissertations, book reviews, policy commentaries or updates, brief updates on longitudinal research in progress, and other shorter pieces that highlight timely issues in the field.
Originality of Manuscript
Manuscripts submitted for consideration must be the original work of the submitting authors, not be previously published in any form - print or online - and be submitted only to the journal. Referees evaluate submitted manuscripts anonymously.
EDITING SERVICE FOR AUTHORS WHERE SECOND LANGUAGE IS ENGLISH
Authors who want to refine the use of English in their manuscripts might consider utilizing the services of SPi, a non-affiliated company that offers Professional Editing Services to authors of journal articles in the areas of science, technology, medicine or the social sciences. SPi specializes in editing and correcting English-language manuscripts written by authors with a primary language other than English.

Any arrangement an author enters into will be exclusively between the author and SPi, and any costs incurred are the sole responsibility of the author.
