CALL FOR PAPERS for the next edition of CLEARvoz Journal
The Center for Leadership, Equity and Research (CLEAR), along with its online peer-reviewed scholarly journal, the CLEARvoz Journal, is seeking submissions of manuscripts of use and interest to education leaders in California and beyond. We seek empirical studies, concept papers, policy briefs, professional experience reflective essays, and other genres. We are strongly interested in empirical studies and concept papers in the area of educational equity, advocacy and leadership mentoring.
The CLEARvoz Journal, a publication of CLEAR, is focused on providing a multidisciplinary forum to provide a broad range of education professors and other professionals an avenue to share scholarly knowledge in K-20 education. CLEARvoz Journal is a component of the research strand of CLEAR, a non-profit organization focused on leadership, equity, and research in educational settings.
CLEAR aims to publish peer-reviewed manuscripts that add to the body of knowledge and focus on research and application to practitioners of K-20 education and affiliated institutions. To achieve this goal, the journal seeks to promote research in elementary, secondary, and postsecondary institutions through articles on advocacy, equity, mentoring, cultural proficiency, diversity, community engagement, and the academic, personal, and social experiences of students; professional issues for faculty and staff; and the regulatory policies impacting such institutions. In addition, research and manuscripts focusing on such topics as social and emotional health, and leadership development of diverse populations are highly encouraged and will receive special consideration.
Book and research review submissions on any of the above strands and topics are welcome.
Authors are invited to submit an original manuscript of 15-20 pages in accordance to the following guidelines: All manuscripts must be submitted electronically in MS Word, not PDF, RTF or WordPerfect and must adhere to the specifications described in the latest version of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (currently the 6th edition, 2011). All parts of the manuscript must be typewritten in 12-point, Times New Roman font, double-spaced, with one inch margins on all sides. Manuscripts should be consecutively numbered throughout the paper in the upper right hand corner with a running header on the upper left hand corner. Manuscripts should include a cover page with title, authors, and their affiliations submitted separately from the body of the paper. Author(s) name should not appear in the body of the paper. The first page of the paper should include the paper title, followed by an abstract of not more than 150 words, and then followed by the introductory header of the paper. References should be included at the end of the paper on a separate page and conform to the current APA guidelines for citations.
