Instructions for Authors:

Papers accepted become the copyright of the Journal, unless otherwise specifically agreed.

All submissions should be made online at Educational Psychology’s Manuscript Central site. New users should first create an account. Once a user is logged onto the site submissions should be made via the Author Centre. Authors should prepare and upload two versions of their manuscript. One should be a complete text, while in the second all document information identifying the author should be removed from files to allow them to be sent anonymously to referees. When uploading files authors will then be able to define the non-anonymous version as “File not for review”.

Articles should be double spaced, with ample margins and should follow the guidelines set out in this Word template. References must strictly adhere to the style guide of the American Psychological Association (APA) (fifth edition) Authors should use the Oxford Dictionary as a guide for spelling.

Statistics.Given the experimental remit of this journal, it is expected that indications of effect size will be included by authors, where possible, so as to allow readers to form a judgement as to the importance of any experimental findings reported.

Electronic Processing

We welcome figures sent electronically, but care and attention to these guidelines are essential as importing graphics packages can often be problematic.

  •  Figures must be saved individually and separate to text. Please do not embed figures in the paper file.
  •  Avoid the use of colour and tints for purely aesthetic reasons.
  •  Figures should be produced as near to the finished size as possible.
  •  All figures must be numbered in the order in which they appear in the paper (e.g. figure 1, figure 2). In multi-part figures, each part should be labelled (e.g. figure 1(a), figure 1(b)).
  •  Figure captions must be saved separately, as part of the file containing the complete text of the paper, and numbered correspondingly.
  •  The filename for the graphic should be descriptive of the graphic, e.g. Figure1, Figure2a.
  •  Files should be saved as one of the following formats: TIFF (tagged image file format), PostScript or EPS (encapsulated PostScript), and should contain all the necessary font information and the source file of the application (e.g. CorelDraw/Mac, CorelDraw/PC).

Please note that it is in the author’s interest to provide the highest quality figure format possible. Please do not hesitate to contact our Production Department if you have any queries.

Tables and captions to illustrations. Tables must be printed out on separate pages and not included as part of the text. The captions to illustrations should be gathered together and also be on a separate page. Tables and figures should be numbered separately. The approximate position of tables and figures should be indicated in the manuscript. Captions should include keys to symbols.

Figures. Please supply one set of artwork in a finished form, suitable for reproduction, since figures will not normally be redrawn by the publisher.
