e-mail: stephanie.james@highland.gov.uk

All articles are refereed anonymously by two members of the editorial board. Articles should be of direct relevance to the theory, research and practice of educational psychologists. Articles should be original work, where appropriate should acknowledge any significant contribution by others, and should not have been accepted for publication elsewhere. Authors should confirm that clearance has been obtained from a relevant senior officer of the LEA if the article concerns the policies and practices of the LEA.

Books & software for review should be sent to: Dev Sharma, Book and Software Review Editor, Educational Psychology in Practice, 42 Charter Avenue, Ilford, Essex, IG2 7AD, UK

Unless otherwise stated, copyright is vested in the Association of Educational Psychologists. Authors are responsible for obtaining any written permission that may be required by copyright law to quote material that has appeared or is about to appear in another publication.

Please type on one side of A4, with double spacing and adequate margins, without justifying lines on the right margin. The title should be on page 1 and not exceed 10 words (50 letters), and should be followed by a summary of not more than 100 words. Since articles are refereed anonymously, please list the name(s) of the author(s) under the title on a separate sheet of paper.

To facilitate communication with readers and for receipt of proofs, please enclose a separate sheet which lists forename(s), family name(s), current role(s) and address for correspondence. The main text should be broken up into sections so that after about every 6 paragraphs there is a subheading of no more than half-a-line of print; paragraphs themselves should not be overlong.

All pages should be numbered. Footnotes to the text should be avoided wherever this is reasonably possible.

Style and Use of Language. Care must be taken to use language which is non-sexist, non-racist and non-discriminatory. On this matter, the Journal follows the British Psychological Society Style Guide and the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.

Electronic Submission. Authors should send the final, revised version of their articles in both hard copy paper and electronic disk forms. It is essential that the hard copy (paper) version exactly matches the material on disk. Please print out the hard copy from the disk you are sending. Submit the three printed copies of the final version with the disk to the journal's editorial office. Save all files on a standard 3.5-inch high-density disk. We prefer to receive disks in Microsoft work in a PC format, but can translate from most other common word-processing programs as well as Macs. Please specify which program you have used. Do not save your files as 'text only', or 'read only'.

Tables and captions to illustrations. Tables must be typed out on separate sheets and not included as part of the text. The captions to illustrations should be gathered together and also typed out on a separate sheet. Tables should be numbered by Roman numerals and figures by Arabic numerals. 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.
