Important New Guidelines for ELR Authors, Reviewers, and Subscribers

The Education Leadership Review (ELR)  moves to a new schedule of publication beginning with the Fall 2017 issue. We will be publishing one issue per year in the fall and will accept submissions for consideration until September 1.

Submit here:

Submissions should approximately 25 pages including references formatted in Microsoft Word. . Manuscripts, including references, MUST follow the guidelines of the 6th Edition of the APA Manual to be considered.

Limit the use of tables, figures, and appendices. In all cases, tables should be formatted with Word Insert Table, and placed in the text at the appropriate location. Manuscripts using tables created by tabs and spaces will be returned to the author. Do not separate tables and figures from the text and do not send them as separate files. In reference section, hard returns ONLY after each reference - not at the end of a line within a reference entry. 

Manuscripts for review must be submitted through the NCPEA FastTrack system, a fully automated web-based manuscript management and tracking service that speeds up the review process, improves the quality of reviews, and enhances the experience of authors, reviewers, and editors while eliminating the need for administrative and other support staff.

Note: NCPEA Publications is committed to reviewing for plagiarism and cyberplagiarism - the copying of paragraphs and ideas from websites and online articles without providing appropriate references. Though it is acceptable to take direct quotes from websites, references (URLs) must be given and the citation must be placed in quotation marks. If the editors and/or reviewers discover plagiarism, NCPEA reserves the right to notify both author and institution of the situation.
