Instructions to authors

Manuscripts in MS Word format should be sent by email attachment to the editors at their electronic addresses: and

Upon initial receipt, the editors will either quickly return manuscripts they believe are unsuitable for publication in Action Researcher in Education or pass them along for blind reviews from at least two additional sources. The blind reviews, along with a recommendation by the Associate Editor, will be passed back to the Editors for a final editorial decision with regard to acceptance, revision or rejection. The Editors will then contact the contributor. We expect the whole process will take around 12 weeks.

Manuscripts submitted should be original, between 3000 and 7000 words, and not published elsewhere. Footnotes to the text should be avoided.

To allow refereeing, all submissions must be properly formatted for anonymous reviewing. Authors' names and institutions should be typed on a separate sheet and submitted with the manuscript. The full postal and email address of the author should be included also in the separate sheet.

Each paper should be accompanied on another separate sheet by an abstract of 100 to 150 words and up to six keywords.

Manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with APA publication guidelines as described in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (5th edition).
