• Manuscript Guidelines

    Manuscripts and submissions should be sent to:
    Subject line: JTWSE 2020 Vision Submission

    In harmony with the 2020 TCWSE Annual Conference's 20/20: A Clear Vision theme, the editors for the JTCWE 2020 volume request manuscripts that align with Visions, Visionary’s, and Victories: Sustainability for 2020 and Beyond. This volume will highlight the work behind collaborative visions, the mindset of successful Visionary’s and how they lead to accomplish the work, and the research behind the systems that create victories in student achievement.

    Each submission is reviewed by the editors and evaluated as appropriate for review and then sent to reviewers for double-blind peer review. Editorial decisions will be made typically within four to six weeks after receipt.

    Manuscripts should follow the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association 6th Edition. The typical article submission is equivalent to 5 to 15 pages single-spaced. If selected, you may be asked to revise and re-submit. It is the responsibility of the author to adhere to deadlines provided at that time. Please be sure to carefully read all guidelines and prepare accordingly prior to submission.

    Document Preparation

    Your manuscript/submission should consist of the following:
