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.

Author Guidelines

We are keen to publish authors's work in a variety of forms including writing or video production. These include:

Opinion Pieces - short and thought provoking, stating a position and drawing on facts and evidence to support it (a maximum of 750 words)

Case Studies - based on projects that identify and deliver change, typically describing: the organisational and historical context, specifications of the project, discussion of pedagogy/practice, implementation, evaluation and lessons learnt (a maximum of 3000 words with around 6 references)

Research Articles - longer papers, providing a clear rationale for the study within the body of published research, an overview of the research methodology adopted, a presentation of findings, and a discussion of those findings in relation to existing knowledge (a maximum of 5000 words and multiple references).

Video submission - We welcome any of the above forms in equivalent video format, however submission should be visually exciting. Recording a talking head video is not sufficient. Rather, the medium of video should be selected only if the content of the submission would be better and more clearly communicated via video.

Book Reviews - critical overview of a book related to inclusive practice (a maximum of 750 words).

Technology Reviews - a critique or review of a technology application that support inclusive practice and reduce attainment gaps, outlining its application for learning and teaching and its strengths and weaknesses (a maximum of 1500 words).

Other formats - if you wish to submit in an alternative format, we are more than happy to be flexible and accessible, so please get in touch with your idea.

Submission format.

Submissions to JEIPC should adhere to the Harvard referencing system both for citations within the text and for the reference list (see Authors are responsible for precision, attention to detail, accuracy and consistency in referencing their papers, in order to assist readers in discoverability. In the reference list in particular, they should be meticulous in everything from punctuation, italicisation, use of single inverted commas where appropriate, the precise method for referencing online sources (and for presenting the date accessed) to ensuring that urls really do work! The word "online" should never appear in the reference list, as "Available at:" provides that information.

Authors should never use e.g. or "See for example" when citing; any citation is by its very nature, an example.

If in any doubt, authors should look at the link to Harvard referencing above and at previous issues of the JEIPC for the style.

For the purposes of copyediting, authors should avoid formatting their reference lists or applying personally-chosen layouts to their submissions, as these have to be unpicked so that journal formatting can be applied. Submissions should be in Word, without any of Word's style formatting, and with all visual material inserted, without text-wrapping, where each figure should appear.

Abstracts should be included at the head of each submission so that they can be copyedited, but authors should be aware that the copyedited versions of the abstracts will be transferred to the metadata accompanying their article and not be published as part of the paper
