Special Issue: Narrative Perspectives in Education

McGill Journal of Education is pleased to announce that it will publish a special thematic issue for Fall 2004 focusing on “Narrative perspectives in education: Theory research and practice.” The guest co-editors will be Drs. Ann Beer, Mary Maguire, Bill Randall, and Dolores Furlong.

The editors invite all participants in the Narrative Matters conference whose papers are relevant to the use of narrative in education to consider making a submission. Details are given below. Work must be submitted by July 24th. A selection of papers will be made and successful authors will be contacted by August 31st.

Authors should submit four copies of their manuscript, entirely double spaced (notes and references included). Manuscripts, 15-20 pages in length, may be written in either English or French and must be accompanied by an abstract of not more than 75 words. To ensure blind review, manuscripts must not reveal their authors’ identity. The title page with author’s name and address should be on a separate page. Authors must state in their covering letter that this manuscript has not been simultaneously submitted to any other publication. Authors must ensure that any research funding has been properly acknowledged. They should also acknowledge all who have played an important part in conducting the research or in preparing the manuscript, including research participants, unless bound by rules of confidentiality. References, notes, tables, graphs, and figures should be limited so that they do not detract from or clutter the text of the article.

Original scholarly articles must be prepared strictly according to the style described in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (5th edition). Spelling should conform to the Gage Canadian Dictionary (1997).

Authors of accepted papers will be requested to assign all rights to copyright to the Journal by means of a standard form. The review period ranges from six weeks to two months.

Completed papers (for the Special Issue only) must be submitted to the guest editors, at the address below, by July 24, 2004. For more information, contact Dr. Ann Beer via e-mail at:
