IALS Journal 2017
Information for Contributors
The IALS Journal, a refereed journal, publishes articles that contribute to the knowledge and understanding of laboratory and university affiliated schools and other significant educational issues. Most articles focus on research, innovation, or opinion. The subjects most often addressed are teaching techniques; administrative concerns; functions, history, and the future of laboratory schools; innovations in curriculum and program; teacher education; student growth and development; and philosophical topics. Rebuttals, responses, and book reviews are also considered for publication. Although available space and thematic journals may limit the number of articles published, unsolicited manuscripts are encouraged. Preference is given to articles that link explicitly to laboratory schools.
The maximum acceptance length is twenty five pages, including all references and supplemental material.
The IALS Journal uses the 6th edition of the American Psychological Association (APA) Publications Manual, for style format. It is extremely important that all manuscripts submitted for publication conform precisely to this APA style.
The NALS Journal reserves the right to make editorial changes in all manuscripts to improve clarity, to conform to style, to correct grammar, and to meet space requirements. All submitted articles are reviewed by the Editors to determine acceptability for publication in the IALS Journal. During the revision phase, authors should include information concerning their title, position, laboratory school, university name, location, etc. A brief author biography and school overview will be included at the conclusion of each article.
For further information: Questions can be directed to the editors. The editors welcome suggestions from IALS members concerning ways in which the IALS Journal may be improved.
