Sponsored by the California State University’s Chancellor’s Office and the system’s thirteen Education Doctorate programs, the Journal of Transformative Leadership and Policy Studies (JTLPS) publishes peer-reviewed studies for the educational leadership and policy community in California and beyond to advance our understanding of solutions to the many problems faced by the nation’s schools and colleges.
One particularly serious problem both in terms of student access and outcomes lies in STEM Education. We know that competence in STEM disciplines is becoming increasingly important not only for students seeking full participation in our economy and our society, but for our collective well-being and productivity. We also know that students in the United States continue to lag behind students in several East Asian countries and European nations in math and science.
As the Journal representing Education Doctorates in one of the largest state university systems in the country, we want to provide an ongoing place for scholars, practitioners and policy-makers to communicate deeply with one another about cutting-edge STEM Education research, innovative STEM policies, and effective STEM-related strategies and initiatives. To that end, we put out the following CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS OF SCHOLARLY ARTICLES:
With this call JTLPS invites scholars to submit papers on a range of topics pertinent to STEM Education. We are interested in manuscripts on promising STEM Education initiatives and projects that are in place in California and in other states and their results. We encourage articles that deal with the integration of technology and engineering within math and science. We seek papers that address STEM Education across disciplines—for example, approaches that incorporate literacy with STEM and, through STEAM, combine the arts and STEM. We have a special interest in programs that address the foundations for STEM success in the elementary grades.
We encourage papers that focus on strategies for increasing the number of undergraduate students who pursue and succeed in STEM majors and courses. We invite articles on methods to increase the number and quality of elementary and secondary school teachers prepared in STEM disciplines. We also seek submissions that address the preparation and development of P-12 educational leaders as STEM education leaders.
In all of these areas, we have an interest in alignment with the Common Core State Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards. Digitally enhanced education is of interest broadly and in relation to implementing the new standards.
JTLPS aims to publish three issues per year—Fall, Spring, and Summer—and therefore asks authors to submit their work by April for consideration in the Fall issue, by July for consideration in the Spring issue, and by November for consideration in the Summer issue.
