Pennsylvania Educational Leadership (PEL) is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal published twice per year and accepts manuscripts year-round. Topics address the interests and concerns of Pennsylvania educators at all levels. We welcome a wide variety of manuscripts including (but not limited to) single study inquiries, qualitative and quantitative research, theoretical and conceptual pieces, historical analyses, literature reviews, action research, and first-person narratives.
Beginning spring 2014, the journal began including a Practitioner’s Page highlighting the voices, thoughts, and opinions of educators in the field. Submissions for the Practitioners Page can take a variety of formats including (but not limited to) book reviews, policy reviews, and critical reflections on current educational issues and trends. Individuals choosing to submit to the Practitioners Page should follow the same submission guidelines as those submitting manuscripts with the exception of the Abstract. Authors must also indicate that the submission is intended for the Practitioners Page on the cover sheet.
Manuscripts should be emailed to Dr. Mary Wolf (PEL Editor) initially to review all submissions. Submissions evaluated as appropriate for review are then sent to three readers for blind review. Manuscripts should follow the guidelines set forth by the American Psychological Association.
Before submitting a manuscript to PEL, please consider the following guidelines carefully:
Questions regarding a possible submission, submissions under review, or submissions requiring revision can be directed to Dr. Mary Wolf (Editor) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
