Author Guidelines

Author Guidelines

Length

An article manuscript, including references, bibliographies, charts, figures and tables, should not exceed 8-10 double-spaced pages, in 12-point Times New Roman type with one-inch margins. Please include a 100 to 200-word abstract for the manuscript and a word count.

Style

References follow the American Psychological Association (APA) format. See: Purdue University’s guide: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/section/2/10.

Figures and Tables

Each table or figure should be numbered consecutively and on a separate sheet. Refer to these tables, etc. in numerical order in the text.

Illustrations

Drawings, cartoons or photos are welcome. Photos must be 300 DPI to meet print standards. Please include suggested captions and photographer credits, where appropriate. If copyrighted material is used in the article, written evidence of permission to use the material must be included.

Editorial Procedures

The editor is responsible for final decisions regarding manuscripts and reserves the right to edit for brevity, clarity and consistency of style. Authors are responsible for obtaining and providing written permissions for copyrighted material used in articles.

Proposed articles are frequently chosen for peer review and are reviewed by at least two members of the Teacher Librarian advisory board, all of who are either scholars or recognized professionals. This is a blind review; reviewers do not know the title or the author of the article.

 

Submissions

E-mail your manuscript as an attachment (preferably Word, but any format is acceptable) to dlevitov@teacherlibrarian.com or ckaaland@antioch.edu.
