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.
