Submissions

Authors should consider the following guidelines before submitting their manuscripts to the Journal.

  • Articles submitted to the Journal should be in a Word format with the figures, tables, abstract, and text all in one file. There is no submission fee. The preferred method of submission is by email to Chris Klein at chris.klein@mtsu.edu.
  • The Journal seeks articles that emphasize text-based content rather than detailed mathematical or statistical proofs. Quantitative expression should be in the nature of demonstrating the applicability of the content to teaching/learning or for stating general functional relationships. Reviewers will judge submissions more on their communication of economic content than on their use of sophisticated quantitative proofs. Nevertheless, statistical tests of classroom experiments are sought and are welcome.
  • The Journal seeks high-quality examples of undergraduate research written independently or with faculty mentors as coauthors.
  • Submissions oriented toward current economic events should reflect sophisticated interpretations of economic fundamentals. The Journal welcomes a full range of K-12 and higher education economic education topics; particularly with respect to interactive lesson plans, principles of economics tutorials, student learning styles, classroom tips, multimedia applications, and experimental economics.
  • Submissions should reflect careful editing by the author and adherence to the Journal’s format. The editor reserves the right to make minor editorial and format changes without contacting the author. Any material changes will have to be approved by the author(s).
  • Submissions are subject to double-blind review. The reviewers can recommend publication “as is,” publication with modifications, or outright rejection.
  • Submitting an article to the Journal implies that the manuscript has not been submitted elsewhere, and will not be submitted elsewhere unless the author has formally withdrawn the paper from Journal consideration.

While a formal copyright release is required before an article is published, potential contributors are alerted to the philosophy inherent in the production of the Journal that any article is publicly available and subject to unlimited reprints.
