All submissions should be written so that the content is accessible to a broad readership, and adhere to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) 7th edition. The copyright of all published submissions belongs to the Journal of Education and Development in the Caribbean.
JEDIC invites submissions in the following categories:
Full length articles. Contributors are encouraged to submit original manuscripts of approximately 25-30 double-spaced pages (that have not been previously published and are not currently under submission at another press).
Book Reviews. JEDIC invites succinct evaluative reviews of professional books, classroom texts and other instructional resources (e.g. standardized tests, computer software, etc.). Reviews should provide a descriptive, evaluative summary and a brief discussion of the significance of the work in the context of current theory and practice. Reviews should normally not exceed 1000 words.
Technical Reports. JEDIC invites short research reports, which present preliminary findings or focus on some aspect of a larger study. In all cases, the discussion of issues should be supported by empirical evidence, collected through qualitative or quantitative (or both) investigations. Submissions to this category should be 7–10 double-spaced pages (including references and notes).
Extended Length Manuscripts. The journal will consider for publication research studies that exceed 30 pages, provided they satisfy the review process. Such occasional publications, however, should not normally exceed 40 pages.
SOE journals use double-blind peer review, which requires the submission of anonymized manuscripts via Scholastica. Please submit a separate title page giving all the author names and affiliations. The first manuscript page that reviewers see should contain only the title, abstract and keywords, with no acknowledgements, footnotes or any other information identifying the authors.
Manuscripts should be compiled in the following order: separate title page document and author’s biographical note; abstract; main text; acknowledgements; appendices (where necessary); references; table(s) with heading(s) on individual sheets; figure caption(s) (as a list)
1. To properly conceal your identity from referees or peer reviewers we ask that you remove:
2. Do not include work in the reference list that has not yet been accepted for publication.
3. Avoid referring to previously published work that you have authored. (For example: “Elsewhere I have argued….”).
4. When submitting the final draft of the manuscript for publication, you will then be required to include all relevant information previously removed for initial submission and peer review.
