Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission pertains to educational policy, and adheres to the focus and scope of the journal.
  • The submission has a title, a set of 3-5 keywords, an abstract of no more than 200 words, and total text of no more than 10,000 words (2,000 words if a commentary). This word count does not include references, or text written into no more than five tables, figures, or other graphic displays.
  • The text is submitted in a single file, formatted with 1" margins (2.54 cm) on all sides, flush left, in Microsoft Word, RTF, or PDF format (including tables, figures, or other graphic displays).
  • The main text is double-spaced, written in 12-point (preferably Garamond) font, contains no numbered or bulleted paragraphs, and adheres to the guidelines of 7th Edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA), unless otherwise specified.
  • The prose is written in readable, professional English, Spanish, or Portuguese (chosen usage must be consistent), and has been appropriately proofread for grammar (e.g., active voice, limited personification) and conventions (e.g., spelling, punctuation, capitalization, paragraphing). Non-native speakers of English submitting manuscripts in English are strongly encouraged to use a copyediting service prior to submission.
  • The submission is entirely the work of the Author(s) and the first and last name, affiliation, e-mail address, and ORCiD of Author(s) are included with the submission.
  • The submission is fully blinded, with Author names and all identifying information removed. If Author(s) are cited, only “Authors(s)” and Year are to be used in the text and references. Acknowledgements and information embedded in the automatic functions of word processing programs (e.g., Author(s)’ names in file “properties”) must be removed, and the file should not contain any comments or tracked changes.
  • The submission is not under consideration for publication by another journal, nor has it been previously published, unless an explanation of a special circumstance is provided in Comments to the Editor.
  • If the research detailed in the text involved human participants, the Author(s) complied with the applicable ethical and legal obligations for their countries, including approvals from appropriate institutional review boards (IRBs). IRB approval should be indicated in the methods section, or elsewhere (e.g., a footnote). Author(s) understand their professional obligation to maintain notes and data sets for a minimum of three years after publication.
  • The First Author of the manuscript agrees to participate as a reviewer for EPAA/AAPE, especially if the manuscript is accepted.
  • Author(s) confirm that there are no conflicts of interest to report.
  • All necessary permissions for extensive excerpts, original or revised figures, etc. have been acquired prior to submission.
  • EPAA/AAPE does not charge Author(s) a fee to publish, and we ask Author(s) to assist in the final formatting of their accepted articles. This assistance includes inserting the final, accepted version in the EPAA/AAPE journal template, in accordance with the EPAA/AAPE style guide, and conducting a final proofreading of the article 3-4 weeks prior to official publication. Lack of assistance on the part of Author(s) will, at minimum, cause a delay in publication.
  • SPECIAL NOTE: Given increasing numbers of submissions and varying demands required of editors and reviewers, EPAA/EPAA will not process submissions as per the following dates, each year, with dates listed by language of submission:

    English, from mid-December to mid-January and four weeks spanning July and August.
    Portuguese, from mid-December to mid-February and the last two weeks of July.
    Spanish (South America), from mid-December to mid-February and the last two weeks of July.
    Spanish (North America), from early December to mid-January and the month of July.
