Instructions to Authors

American Secondary Education is a distinctive journal because it is one of the few scholarly journals focused solely on issues of concern to administrators, teachers, and researchers in middle and high school education. Articles submitted to the journal should address current theory, research and practice that have a clear relevance to secondary education. The journal features two kinds of articles. Research reports and reviews of literature should be unbiased and scholarly in nature. Such articles may be 20-25 pages in length. Informed commentary articles argue for a particular action agenda by citing relevant literature. Articles in this category should be limited to 10-15 manuscript pages. The Editor welcomes articles about innovative school and district programs, effective classroom practices at the high school and middle school levels  and issues relating to the achievement, lifestyles, attitudes and culture of adolescents.
