The Journal of Research on Leadership Education (JRLE), an electronic peer-reviewed journal, provides an international venue for scholarship and discourse on the teaching and learning of leadership across the many disciplines that inform the field of educational leadership. JRLE seeks to promote and disseminate rigorous scholarship on the teaching, learning, and assessing of leadership preparation and practice, the political and contextual issues that impact leadership education, and the links between leadership education and student learning. JRLE accepts empirical and conceptual articles and embraces both traditional and emergent research paradigms.

The Journal of Research on Leadership Education (JRLE), an electronic peer-reviewed journal, seeks to promote and disseminate rigorous scholarship and provide an international venue across multiple disciplines and contexts to inform the field of educational leadership.

  • The Journal of Research on Leadership Education (JRLE) uses an electronic submission and review process. Manuscripts should be submitted to JRLE's SAGETrack website at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jrle where authors will be required to set up an online account in the SAGETrack system. For questions about submitting manuscripts, please contact the JRLE Managing Editor at jrle.editor@wsu.edu

    Submitted manuscripts should be 25 to 35 pages in length (including references) and conform to the style of the 6th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA). All copy should be typed, double-spaced, in Times New Roman 12-point font. Notes, references, tables should be included in the MS Word file at the end of the manuscript per APA style. Figures may be submitted as TIFF or JPEG images, although we can accept most other formats.

    Abstract

    Manuscripts must include an abstract of no more than 100 words. Abstracts for empirical manuscripts should summarize the study’s purpose, research methods or approach, findings, and key conclusions. For non-empirical manuscripts, abstracts should summarize the key features of the manuscript, for example, the purpose, conceptual argument or model, and conclusions. Additionally, five key words or phrases should be listed after the abstract.

    Author Identification

    Manuscripts should include a cover sheet with the title, author’s name, address, phone number, fax number, and e-mail address, along with a brief biographical statement (2-3 sentences). If the article was authored by more than one person, co-authors’ names, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and biographical statements should also be included. To assure blind review, the author’s name or identifying information should NOT appear in headers, footers, reference list, or citations throughout the manuscript. Information in the text or reference list that would identify the author should be replaced with the word “Author” in lieu of the author’s name or identifying information.

    Originality of Manuscript

    Manuscripts submitted for consideration must be the original work of the submitting author(s), must not be previously published in any form – print or on-line, and must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.

    Review Process

    Manuscripts are reviewed initially by the JRLE editorial team and, if approved, are sent out for blind review to a minimum of three reviewers. Authors of all reviewed manuscripts will receive copies of the anonymous comments of our reviewers.

    Special Issue Proposals

    In addition to its regular blind, refereed empirical or conceptual manuscripts, the JRLE editorial team will consider proposals for special issues that address timely and significant topics related to leadership preparation. For information and guidelines for submitting a special issue proposal, please contact the JRLE Managing Editor at jrle.editor@wsu.edu
