Appropriateness of Topic for JOLE
Articles should relate to both leadership and education, and should be balanced in their focus and emphasizing leadership and education. If you are uncertain about the appropriateness of your topic please review previous issues found in the JOLE archives.
Previous Publication, Journal Review, and Conference Presentation
JOLE does not accept submissions published previously or under review by another journal. By submitting their manuscript authors agree that the work has not been published and is not under review by any other journal. Prior presentation at a conference or concurrent consideration for presentation does not disqualify a manuscript from submission to JOLE.
Submitting an Article to JOLE
Submissions are received via the JOLE FastTrack site at http://jole.expressacademic.org/login.php
All submissions must be uploaded as a Word file. For this to be a truly blind process, please sanitize the manuscript by eliminating any identifying references within the article such as your institution, region or state. JOLE uses a rolling (ongoing) deadline; accepted submissions will be published within 18 months.
