Submit to JCES
Submit manuscripts and accompanying images by e-mail attachment to email@example.com. Images should be JPEGs, 300 resolution, no larger than 6 by 9 inches. Most will be smaller. While we will use mostly black and white images, please send your images as RGB color so that we will have the option of color. All photos must have captions. Embed the captions in the photo under File Info (a pull-down option in Photoshop). If you are unfamiliar with this option, send the captions as a separate document.
Please include both a regular and masked version of your manuscript. The masked version should use brackets to indicate masking of particular identifying information. For example, do not refer to The University of Alabama as the location of your service-learning project. Instead, refer to the [university]. This will help to protect your anonymity and preserve the integrity of our peer- review process. Our reviewers are aware that brackets indicate masked information.Once your submission is received, it will be assessed to ensure that it meets our basic standards, including APA style, number of pages, cover page, and inclusion of a masked copy. If these standards are met, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with your manuscript number. Please use this manuscript number in all correspondence regarding your manuscript.Your manuscript will be assigned to two reviewers based on corresponding interests. We match each manuscript as closely as possible to the expertise of the reviewers. Our reviewers are nationally recognized in their area of scholarship and have chosen to volunteer their time to JCES. As such, we are unable to guarantee a specific expedited timeline for the review of your manuscript. However, we make every effort to return manuscripts in a timely manner consistent with thorough scholarly review.Every manuscript is also reviewed by our editor, Dr. Cassandra Simon. This final review process takes about two weeks. If we determine that the manuscript should be revised and resubmitted, you will receive an e-mail detailing the requested changes. Authors are typically asked to make their revisions within one month.Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be happy to provide you an update on your manuscript status or answer any questions.More specific guidelines can be found under the Instructions for Authors link below.
