The Journal of Special Education Apprenticeship: Author Guidelines
Author Guidelines

JOSEA employs an open submissions policy and accepts manuscripts anytime. In alignment with the mission statement, the journal welcomes manuscripts developed from quality research outcomes of graduate studies to foster research-based practices for children and youth with special education needs. The journal publishes original research articles and scholarly reviews on broad special education topics. The journal publishes traditional experimental, qualitative, single-subject research, and book reviews.

The manuscript must be original (it has not been published before; that it is not under consideration for publication anywhere else), scientifically accurate, and in good form editorially. The manuscript should be informative, summarizing the basic facts, findings, implications, and maintaining a coherence and unity of thought. The format of headings, tables, figures, citations, references, and other details should follow the latest edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA). Apart from the APA style, it is highly recommended to place tables and figures within the text but not as attachments. No hard copy submission papers will be accepted. Do not use any word processing options/tools, such as-strike through, hidden text, comments, merges, and so forth.

Submit your manuscript to Dr. Brittany Hott Brittany.Hott@tamuc.edu or Dr. Beth Jones Beth.Jones@tamuc.edu in either of the following formats.

* doc or docx
* RTF - Rich Text Format

As a general rule, manuscripts should not exceed 30 double-spaced pages. Manuscripts containing complex material should be broken up by short, meaningful subheads. Manuscripts should be double-spaced and a font size of 12 is preferred.

Manuscripts should be preceded by an abstract of 100-200 words followed a separate line of keywords. Authors should follow the latest edition of the Publication Manual of APA for assistance in preparing the abstract.

The review process normally takes 2-4 months to complete depending on the number of review rounds. Accepted manuscripts may be revised for format, organization, and length.
