Manuscripts to publish in the Journal of Educational Administration and Policy (JEAP) should be submitted electronically to KEAS (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The submitted manuscript should be an unpublished paper and should not be concurrently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts should be written in English and follow the style guideline as below. [Manuscripts should follow the style of the 6th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA)]
All accepted manuscripts become the property of the KEAS. Authors are required to sign an agreement for the transfer of Copyright to KEAS when their manuscripts are accepted.
The title page should include:
·Times New Roman, 10 pt, 1" margins on all sides.
·The name(s) of the author(s)
·A concise and informative title
·The affiliation(s) and address(es) of the author(s)
·The e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers of the corresponding author
To ensure appropriate blind review, the authors name or identifying information should NOT appear in headers, footers, reference list, or other portions of the manuscript text; instead, author self-citation should be indicated by (Author, year) in the text. References should similarly list (Author, year) and exclude title, publisher, etc., to ensure blind review
Please provide an abstract of 100 to 250 words. The abstract should not contain any undefined abbreviations or unspecified references.
Length of Manuscript
There is no page limit for manuscripts to be considered for publication. However, manuscripts that are eventually accepted for publication are normally between 20 to 30 pages (5,000 to 8,000 words) inclusive of all tables, text, and references.
Manuscripts should be submitted in Word.
·Use italics for emphasis.
·Use the automatic page numbering function to number the pages.
·Do not use field functions.
·Use tab stops or other commands for indents, not the space bar.
·Use the table function, not spreadsheets, to make tables.
·Use the equation editor or MathType for equations.
·Save your file in docx format (Word 2007 or higher) or doc format (older Word versions).
Please use no more than three levels of displayed headings.
Abbreviations should be defined at first mention and used consistently thereafter.
Footnotes can be used to give additional information, which may include the citation of a reference included in the reference list. They should not consist solely of a reference citation, and they should never include the bibliographic details of a reference. They should also not contain any figures or tables.
Footnotes to the text are numbered consecutively; those to tables should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters (or asterisks for significance values and other statistical data). Footnotes to the title or the authors of the article are not given reference symbols.
Always use footnotes instead of endnotes.
Acknowledgments of people, grants, funds, etc. should be placed in a separate section on the title page. The names of funding organizations should be written in full.
Cite references in the text by name and year in parentheses. Some examples:
·Negotiation research spans many disciplines (Thompson, 1990).
·This result was later contradicted by Becker and Seligman (1996).
·This effect has been widely studied (Abbott, 1991; Barakat et al. 1995; Kelso and Smith, 1998; Medvec et al., 1999).
The list of references should only include works that are cited in the text and that have been published or accepted for publication. Personal communications and unpublished works should only be mentioned in the text. Do not use footnotes or endnotes as a substitute for a reference list.
The style of the citation and references should confirm to APA style. JEAP follows the recommendations of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (Sixth Edition) or www.apasytle.org.
Reference list entries should be alphabetized by the last names of the first author of each work.

·All tables are to be numbered using Arabic numerals.
·Tables should always be cited in text in consecutive numerical order.
·For each table, please supply a table caption (title) explaining the components of the table.
·Identify any previously published material by giving the original source in the form of a reference at the end of the table caption.
·Footnotes to tables should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters (or asterisks for significance values and other statistical data) and included beneath the table body.
Please provide 4 to 6 keywords which can be used for indexing purposes.
Manuscripts submitted for consideration must be the original work of the submitting authors, not be previously published in any form - print or online - and be submitted only to the journal. Referees evaluate submitted manuscripts anonymously.
The JEAP uses a blind peer review process. All manuscripts submitted to the JEAP go through the following review procedure.
(1) All manuscripts are assessed the suitability for review and publication in the JEAP by the editorial board.
(2) For those judged suitable, at least three reviewers are selected and a double-blind peer review procedure proceeds
(3) Based on the recommendation from the reviewers, the editor decides whether the particular article should be accepted as it is, revised or rejected.
