Guidelines for Writers

Jewish Educational Leadership is a journal of thought and practice geared toward Jewish education professionals from across the denominational spectrum. 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 Article

Each issue focuses on a theme, and all articles related to the theme will be considered. Articles should be 1,000 – 1,500 words in length.

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. Hebrew text must be transliterated and should follow the general rules used by the Encyclopaedia Judaica, with the following exceptions: ח is h; צ is tz. Sephardic pronunciation should be used.

For other matters of style, refer to The Chicago Manual of Style, Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary (10th ed.), and the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.

Authors bear full responsibility for the accuracy of citations, quotations, figures, and facts.
