Submission Process Guidelines for Authors
Authors interested in publishing in the journal must follow the guidelines outlined below. Submissions that do not conform to these guidelines will not be considered for publication.
For English manuscripts, follow Chicago Manual of Style (15th ed.) and Oxford Canadian Dictionary or Concise Oxford Dictionary spelling. Text and endnotes should be written in Times New Roman font, size 12, and must be 1.5 spaced. Please use endnotes rather than footnotes. Titles, subtitles, and heading styles have a standard format. Please consult the last issue and conform to this style. MS Word or RTF files are accepted.
Authors must submit electronically by uploading to the HSE website (OJS) or sending the submission to the Managing Editor via e-mail attachment. Registration and login to the Historical Studies in Education website are required to submit items to the journal and to check the status of current submissions. For more information concerning submissions procedures, please refer to here.
Each article should be accompanied by an English or French abstract of 100–150 words, a list of six key words in French and English, and an author biography of not more than 100 words in English for English articles or in French for French articles. Supplementary files such as data sets, graphics, research instruments, and so on may also be submitted. Supplementary materials should be submitted as separate files, clearly marked and referenced with short descriptive titles. Additional information (such as legends) should be added as a note. Their placement in the text must be clearly marked.
Manuscripts must normally adhere to the following size limitations:
- 9,500 words maximum for articles, including endnotes but excluding abstract/résumé;
- 2,500 words maximum for submissions to the section “Growing Up In;” and
- 1,000 words maximum for book reviews.
Authors transfer copyright to the journal, which then permits authors non-commercial use of the work, including the right to place it in an open access archive. For reprinting in a publication that is available for sale, permission must be obtained from the journal. It is expected that authors will provide written acknowledgement of Historical Studies in Education as the originating publisher when using the work in other venues or publications.
Articles must report original work. The submission of a manuscript to the journal implies that it has not been submitted or accepted for publication elsewhere, and that the work contained therein is the author’s own.
All article submissions must pass a peer review process following blind review protocol. Authors must therefore ensure that steps are taken to preserve author anonymity by removing names and other identifying information from manuscripts and from document/file properties.
Authors whose manuscripts are accepted for publication may be asked to supply a final copy, and an abstract by email attachment.
This journal supports the elimination of sexual, racial, and ethnic stereotyping.
