OTHER EDUCATION: THE JOURNAL OF EDUCATIONAL ALTERNATIVES

PREPARING YOUR ACCEPTED MANUSCRIPT FOR PUBLICATION

As Other Education is a no budget journal, we have very limited capacity for editing and formatting your contribution. It is therefore greatly appreciated if you can submit the final version of your text as closely as possible according to our formatting guidelines. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

WORD PROCESSOR

Please submit your text as a Microsoft Word document, ideally as a Word 97-2003 document (which is a 'doc' document, not a 'docx' document).

 

THE MAIN TEXT

Word count should normally be between 6,000-8,000 words.

SETTINGS

You do not need to worry about the margins. Just use a standard setting (e.g., one inch from top and bottom and left and right, or 2 cm).

Make sure that your manuscript is single spaced and spacing (before and after) is set to 0 pt (zero point. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT; you can find the menu for this under 'page layout' and then the submenu 'paragraph').

Use the same typeface for the whole text (including footnotes and references), ideally Times New Roman pt12.

Align all text to the left.

TITLE, NAME, AFFILIATION, ABSTRACT AND KEYWORDS

Start with the title of your piece. Use title capitals (NOT: For the joy of other education  INSTEAD: For the Joy of Other Education).

On the next line put your name.

On the next line put your institutional affiliation, plus the country. (For example: University of New York, USA). If you are not affiliated to an institution, put 'Independent scholar'.

One white line.

Put your abstract here, starting with the word 'Abstract.' The abstract should be between 100 and 200 words.

One white line

Put between 3 and 8 keywords here, starting with the word 'Keywords’ and insert three white spaces.

One white line.

TEXT, REFERENCES, ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS AND AUTHOR DETAILS

Then start with your text.

Each section should have a title (including the first section which, if you don't have a specific section title, can simply be called 'Introduction'). First level headings are in bold; second level headings are without bold; third level headings are in italics without bold.

Use title formatting for your section headings (NOT The ends of education, BUT The Ends of Education).

There should be no white line between a section title and the text.

The first line of the section should not have a tab.

For each new paragraph use a tab, NOT a white line.

There should only be white lines between sections.

Ensure your text is entirely in black (and not dark grey in places) by highlighting all text and choosing font colour black.

If quoting more than 40 words, create a block quotation. No need for quotation marks. Indent by one cm either side of block and leave a space of one line above and below.

If quote is less than 40 words, leave in text, with double quotation marks  " " around. Where reported speech is embedded within this, put single '  ' mark around this only and close quotation at end with standard quotation double mark ".

Use footnotes, not endnotes. Use the word footnote option and put footnotes in the same font and font size you are using for the main text.

After the final line of your text: one white line.

Then a section with the title References.

Put your references in alphabetical order, with no white lines between references. Make sure you follow the formatting guidelines for APA 5th extremely carefully (see below).

After the references you have the opportunity for an acknowledgement. If you want to make use of this, separate it from the references with one white line, use the title 'Acknowledgements' and type your acknowledgements below the title.

Another white line.

Heading 'Author Details'

Below this heading put a very brief statement about yourself. Followed by your contract address. Use the following example:

Author Details

Jo Smith is Professor of Education at the University of Normington. Contact address: School of Education, University of Normington, Place City, PC1 QTA, Country. E-mail: jo.smith@normington.ac.uk

 

REFERENCING

We follow the APA (American Psychological Association) guidelines for referencing (a useful summary of the main principles can be found at  http://www.lib.monash.edu.au/tutorials/citing/apa.html).

 

In the text you need to use an author date system, the main formatting requirements are:

- a comma after the author's name

- a comma after the year of publication

- p. or pp. for the page numbers

- if there are two authors use '&' and not 'and'

- if there are three authors use a comma after the first and & after the second author

- if there are more than three authors, use the first author's name, followed by 'et al' (no need for full stop after 'al')

- multiple references should be separated by a semi-colon

Examples:

(Cook, 1992, p.14)

(Cook, 1992, pp.116-118)

(Cook & Campbell, 2007, p.31)

(Cook et al., pp.14-21)

(Cook et al., pp.14-21; see also Campbell 2009, p.8)

 

For the reference list:

Double check the references you have cited in text appear in the reference list in the end.  List references alphabetically and where a name is repeated, in year order with earliest first to most recent.

book

Blumer, H.F. (1969). Symbolic interaction. Englewood Cliffs, NJ: Prentice-Hall.

some things to note:

only use an initial for the author, not the full first name

put the year of publication in brackets, followed by a full stop

put the title of the book in italics; only capitalize the first word (and names of people and places)

a subtitle should begin again with a capital

put a full stop at the end of the title

 

journal article

Trankle, S. A., & Haw, J. (2009). Predicting Australian health behaviour from health beliefs. Electronic Journal of Applied Psychology, 5(2), 9-17

some things to note:

if there is more than one author, use the '&' sign, not 'and'

put the year of publication in brackets followed by a full stop

the first letter of the title of the article should have a capital (and also names of people and places)

a full stop at the end of the article's title

the journal's name should be in italics using capitals

it should be followed by a comma

the volume number should be in italics, followed by the issue number in brackets (not space), NOT in italics

then a comma

then the page numbers (WITHOUT 'pp.')

 

chapter in book

Ramsey, J. K., & McGrew, W. C. (2005). Object play in great apes: studies in nature and captivity. In A. D. Pellegrini & P. K. Smith (Eds.), The nature of play: Great apes and humans (pp. 89-112). New York: Guilford Press.

some things to note

the first letter of the title of the chapter should have a capital (and also names of people and places)

a full stop at the end of the chapter's title, followed by the word 'In' with a capital 'I'

use 'Ed.' or 'Eds.' with a capital (note that APA requires a full stop after Eds, which is grammatically not correct)

make sure you included the pages for the chapter in brackets after the title of the book
