Submission Preparation ChecklistAs 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.
- The electronic file format of text materials should be MS Word, RTF, OpenOffice 2.0 or plain text. Please note that if accepted (and after any revisions), the file will be converted to HTML and PDF for online publication.
- All written submissions are to be in English.
- Use the American Psychological Association (APA) 7 format as the basis for references.
- The title page should contain the submission title, author(s) name, position/affiliation, institution, address, phone number, email address, as well as a 100–250 word abstract and a list of 4–12 keywords. Please upload your title page as a separate document from your blinded manuscript.
- We expect our authors to remove any potentially identifying information from their submission. This includes, but is not limited to author name(s), institution(s), and program or unit names.
- Labelled tables, graphs, images, and illustrations are to be placed at the appropriate places within the body of the submission with suitable titles and subtitles. If colour or grayscale images are used, they should be tested on a black and white printer to ensure legibility when downloaded.
- Citations, and suggested sources should be placed at the end of the submission.
We invite authors to submit works in which there is a conversation, or similar forms of exchange, between two or more participants that facilitate deeper insights, open lines of inquiry, or evolving relationships in the service of personal and/or scholarly transformation related to teaching and learning.
We wish for this section to not only feature dialogues, but also to act as a form of dialogic space in which authors and readers can openly and creatively explore ideas in the context of relating with others. With that in mind, submissions to the Dialogues section may be presented in conventional formats such as stage dialogue, letters, or interviews, but we encourage authors to consider a wide range of alternative approaches (including digital media) to how their work may be represented in this space.
All submissions will be double-blind peer reviewed
