Types of Manuscripts (# of manuscript pages in parentheses)
• Scholarly manuscripts are original quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-method research; scholarly reviews; and conceptual or discussion papers. For descriptions of research studies, (a) the research or evaluation method must be connected closely to the question(s) being addressed and (b) the setting, participants, and procedures should be described in sufficient detail to allow for possible replication. All manuscripts should include compelling recommendations for second-ary education and transition practice that could be applied at the system, program, or individual level. (30 pp. max.)
• Transition in Practice manuscripts cover topics related to secondary transition professional practice such as (a) research-based programs and interventions; (b) strategies focusing on cultural responsiveness; (c) strategies for reforming transition service delivery, curricula, and professional roles; (d) ways to foster and/or improve the practitioners’ professional development; and (e) information pertaining to state and federal legislation, rules, and regulations with implications for transition practice. The focus of these manuscripts is on how to implement evidence-based or research-based practices. The target audience consists of special and general education teachers, related services specialists, administrators, para-professionals, community partners, and other practitioners who work with youth with disabilities during the transition years. (15 pp. max.)
All manuscripts should be written in the active voice.
Page counts must include title/abstract page, references, main text, and all table and figure pages. Abstract, text, references, and tables should be double-spaced.
Authors should prepare their manuscript according to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition, 2010). The editors also recommend that authors follow established guidelines for high-quality research related to the methodology used in their study.
Ethical Standards. Authors are expected to follow the ethical and legal standards outlined in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed., 2010) related to reporting data and authorship, disclosing funding sources and conflicting interests, and ensuring the rights of research participants. CDTEI also requires that authors certify that IRB approval or institutional exemption was obtained for any studies on which their work is directly based.
Format. Please follow this format for your manuscript.
1. Title Page. Submit a SEPARATE TITLE PAGE FILE with (a) article title; (b) names of all authors; (c) author affiliations, complete mailing address for contact author, e-mail addresses of all authors; and (d) any acknowledgments, financial disclosure information, author notes, or other text that could identify authors to reviewers.
2. Format: 8½ x11 in. document; 1-inch margins; double spacing, left alignment, Times New Roman 12-pt. type for text and tables. Include title and abstract. Text and table files MUST BE Word documents; no PDFs. Tables should all be double spaced.
3. Tables. Each table should start on a new page. Tables should follow APA 6th guidelines; please use Word’s table functions. All tables must be cited in text.
4. Endnotes. Use endnotes sparingly. Number with Arabic numerals starting with 1 and continuing through article. Example: (see Note 1). NO footnotes.
Figures. These should be separate files, with each figure on a new page or file. Figures must be black and white only and production-ready. Because most art will be reduced to fit, use a bold, san serif type that is large enough to be reduced and still be readable, and make sure rules/tick marks are at least 1 pt. Acceptable electronic formats for art: TIFF, EPS, Word, or Excel. For scans/photos, download the SAGE Image Resolution Guidelines from the Instructions & Forms link at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/cdtei. If you have trouble when loading Excel files, copy and paste them into a Word file.
Permissions. Obtaining written permission for material such as figures, tables, art, and extensive quotes taken directly—or adapted in minor ways—from another source is the author’s responsibility, as is payment of any fees the copyright holder may require. Permissions often take a considerable amount of time to be granted; start the request process as soon as possible. Material taken from software or from the Internet also requires obtaining permission. Authors can download a Permissions Request form at http://mc .manuscriptcentral.com/cdtei (see Instructions & Forms Link under Resources head). Read any granted permissions carefully to make sure the language is broad enough to allow publication in all formats, including electronic and print. Failure to obtain permission will result in either removal of the particular item or pulling the article from the journal issue.
Authors for Whom English Is a Second Language. We highly recommend having a colleague or copyeditor who is fluent in English review the manuscript before submission.
Supplemental Material. Decisions regarding inclusion of supplemental material will be made by the editor as part of the article acceptance process. With the exception of videos and podcasts, supplemental files will be deposited to Figshare and assigned a DOI. Authors are responsible for the scientific accuracy and file functionality of all supplemental files; materials will not be copyedited, typeset, or proofread. Additional information and guidelines are available for download from the Instructions and Forms link at https://mc .manuscriptcentral.com/cdtei
