Author Instructions

Material should be original, accurate, and editorially correct. The manuscript may not be submitted for review elsewhere. The journal features practitioner research, descriptions of practitioner research centers and book reviews pertaining to practitioner research. Articles will undergo blind review; thus authors should assure that specific reference to their name(s) and institutions are not included in the manuscript.


Articles should not exceed 20 pages including references. Authors will also submit a separate 100-200 word abstract. Book reviews should range from 3-4 pages. Center for Practitioner Research reviews should range between 750 to 1500 words. Text should be single spaced, double spaced between paragraphs, no paragraph indent, size 12 font and Times New Roman.


All submissions should be formatted using APA style as described in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th edition.

The manuscript should be formatted with Microsoft Word. Use default Microsoft Word margins: 1 1/2 inches top and bottom, 1 inch right and left margins.

Original photos are encouraged to enhance effective understanding, although we discourage photos with recognizable faces of minors. Permission for publishing photos must be provided upon acceptance for publication.

Submit articles without a title page, abstract, or page numbers; these will be provided by the system.
