Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in Microsoft Word readable format
  • Referencing follows the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) style, 7th edition.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  • The text, if submitted to a peer-reviewed section (e.g., Articles), has had the authors' names removed. If an author is cited, "Author" and year are used in the bibliography and footnotes, instead of author's name, paper title, etc. The author's name has also been removed from the document's Properties, which in Microsoft Word is found in the File menu.
  • Submission does not include embedded footnotes. Endnotes are kept to a minimum, and are indicated in text by superscript, and not embedded in the document, but written as normal text at the end of the manuscript. Acyronyms are used sparingly, and are clearly identified the first time used.
  • Manuscript does not exceed 7000 words, unless previously approved by an editor.
  • The research, as presented, has been approved by an institutional and/or community-based research ethics board as appropriate for human and other animal participants, and an acknowledgment of the review is included somewhere in the text of the paper.

Author Guidelines

Contributions may take the form of research articles, reports, evaluations, case studies, critical essays, practitioner reflections, and reviews. Theoretical essays or research reports should include a description of the practical applications of the ideas raised or tested, while reports of teaching practice or techniques should contain an explanation of the theoretical foundation underlying the practice or technique in question. After initial editorial vetting, manuscripts will be reviewed by at least two advisory editors or invited consultants with relevant expertise. Contributors may wish to supply names and addresses of potential reviewers. The selection of articles for inclusion in the journal will be based on these reviews. Submissions are accepted until November 1 of each year. Submissions Manuscripts should be clearly written and well-organized and will be edited for clarity and brevity. Electronic submissions are requested. Submissions can be made by creating an author account on this Online Journal System. All submissions should include a brief abstract to a maximum of 125 words and a minimum of five key words for referencing of papers. The name and affiliation of the author(s) should appear on a separate title page to ensure anonymity during the reviewing process. Authors should retain an exact copy of this manuscript in order to respond to requests for clarification of specific pages, paragraphs, or lines. Microsoft Word is the preferred format. Manuscripts are accepted for publication on the understanding that they have been submitted only to the Canadian Journal of Environmental Education and that copyright of the published articles will be owned by the journal. Authors are responsible for the factual accuracy of their papers and for obtaining permission to reproduce text or illustrations from other publications. Articles that describe research involving human or other animal subjects must include details of the ethics review process undertaken (e.g.: Research Ethics Board, Institutional Review Board, etc.), and name the institution(s) where ethics approval was granted. The Canadian Journal of Environmental Education will not normally publish feature articles by the same author in consecutive issues. Exceptions may be considered in cases of contiguous work. This limitation does not apply to short analyses, response pieces, or book reviews. Papers should not exceed a maximum of 7000 words. To check manuscript length we conduct a computerized word-count that includes the abstract, endnotes, references, and bibliographical sketch(es) of author(s). Long papers may be returned to authors at any stage of the review or production processes. To avoid disappointment, please take care. Style Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 7th edition (APA), must be used as a style reference. Explanatory notes should be avoided whenever possible. Essential notes should be identified with consecutive superscripts and listed in a section entitled “Notes” at the end of the text. Papers not formatted in APA style may be returned to authors at any stage of the review or production processes. Citations are normally presented in a list of references. Please check that in text references match your list of references, double-checking that dates match. Please refer to the following examples: In text: (Greenall Gough, 1993) (Kurth-Schai, 1992; Merchant, 1980; Warren & Cheney, 1991) References: Egan, K. (1989). Individual development. In K. Egan, A.

Warren, K. J. & Cheney, J. (1991). Ecological feminism and ecosystemecology.Hypatia, 6(1), 179-197. Canadian spellings will normally be used. However, alternative approaches to both form and spelling will be considered when integral to the “voice” presented. Illustrations, Figures, and Tables Only those illustrations, figures, and tables essential to reader understanding should be included. Illustrations, figures, and tables should be provided in finished form suitable for reproduction and be no larger than 18 x 11.75 cm or 7 x 4.25 inches. Figure legends should be typed together on a separate page. Correspondence All correspondence should be addressed to: Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, email:
