Each issue contains articles including research, descriptions of effective programs, cutting edge practices and out of the box thinking, alongside regular features.

How to Prepare Your Manuscript

Each issue focuses on a theme, and all articles related to the theme will be considered. Articles containing original research, digests of research conducted in general education, or focusing on educational theory will be considered for the Focus section, and should be limited to 3000 words (excluding references). Articles describing existing programs, new thinking, proposals for new directions, etc. will be considered for the Applications sections, and should be limited to 2000 words.

Please use the reference style outlined by the American Psychological Association. References should be cited in the text as (Piaget, 1964) and listed them in bibliographic form at the end of the article. Citations of biblical verses and talmudic passages should be included in the text of the article, surrounded by parentheses.
