Original Research Paper – papers that report on original empirical research with a focus on teaching and learning. Papers should include an Abstract, Introduction, Method, Results, Discussion, and Reference section, as well as any tables and/or figures. Research articles should be approximately 2500-3000 words in length.
Research articles – papers that provide a balanced synopsis of the current literature within a specific area of inquiry. These papers summarize the literature comprehensively, but also identify outstanding questions and areas for future inquiry.
Review papers – papers that provide a balanced synopsis of the current literature within a specific area of inquiry. These papers should not only summarize the literature comprehensively, but should also identify outstanding questions and areas for future inquiry. Review papers should be approximately 2500-3000 words in length.
Brief Reports – These are papers that report on original empirical research, but are shorter and more limited in scope. Examples of research that might be presented in this format include results from a pilot study, findings from a study with a small sample size that show promise of a large effect size, research using a simple design and answering a single, specific question, or reports from an early phase of a project that is still ongoing. These papers include the same sections as Original Research Articles, but are no longer than 2500 words in length.
Scholarly reviews of books are occasionally considered for publication, depending on the relevance of the book for the journal readership. These papers should present a brief summary of the book as well as a critical reflection on the book’s strengths and weaknesses. Of critical importance is that the review situates the book within a teaching and learning framework. These papers are no more than 1500 words in length.
