Submission Preparation Checklist
As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- We would like to announce that beginning on Friday, April 26, 2013, the Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement will temporarily suspend accepting new manuscript submissions. We have been receiving a steady flow of high-quality submissions, and this suspension will allow us to catch up on concentrating on the manuscripts that we have in line for publication. If you have already submitted a manuscript for consideration, or if you submit prior to April 26, the process will continue as usual. We will begin to accept manuscripts for publication consideration again beginning on Monday, September 2, 2013. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Drew Pearl at email@example.com.
- The instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
- If the author chooses to make suggestions for peer reviewers, the names and contact information for those potential reviewers should be provided in the Comments for the Editor.
I have indicated which of the six categories the manuscript should be considered under:
- Research Articles: Quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-method studies that demonstrate the long-term impact of a university-community engagement project on the community, students, faculty and staff, or the institution.
- Reflective Essays – Hiram Fitzgerald, Associate Editor: Thought provoking examinations of current issues related to university-community engagement that are anchored in the literature.
- Projects with Promise: Descriptions of early-stage university-community engagement projects with early indications of impact; plan for long-term evaluation; plan for how the project will be sustained; and best practices for the reader to emulate.
- Practice Stories from the Field – Scott Peters, Associate Editor: Narrative inquiry studies that illuminate issues related to university-community engagement.
- Dissertation Overviews – Elaine Ward, Associate Editor: Dissertation summaries of methods used to examine topics related to university-community engagement.
- Book Reviews – Ted Alter, Associate Editor: Reviews of books related to university-community engagement that go beyond mere description of the contents to analyze and glean implications for theory and practice.
