ETHNIC STUDIES PEDAGOGIES JOURNAL

SUBMISSIONS

4

We invite submissions from scholar-activists, educators, organizers, and students in the form of scholarly research, archival histories, action research pedagogies, testimonios, photo essays, and art.  All manuscripts should contribute to a living archive of ethnic studies pedagogies in all its forms, written from and for anti-racist, decolonial, and rehumanizing movements both inside and outside K-12 contexts.

 

REVIEW PROCESS

 

Drawing from Chicana Feminist approaches to journal publications, Ethnic Studies Pedagogies "cultivates collaborative writing and editing processes and feminist mentorship (femtorship), challenging the Euro-centric, male, capitalist assumption that competition and individualism yield scholarly excellence" (Saldaña & Alemán, 2019).

 

We seek to expand upon the traditional manuscript review process by including a collaborative review on accepted manuscripts. Issues may be themed or open, so please look for each issue call for proposals. Accepted proposal contributors are invited to the next stage in the publication process.

 

Collaborative reviews entail working alongside an Editorial Board member and/or with other contributing authors on a special issue. All manuscripts are reviewed by editorial board members and invited scholars/community members.

 

Manuscripts undergo a two-stage review process. The first level of review assesses the quality of the manuscript and how it addresses  anti-racist, decolonial, and humanizing pedagogies both inside and outside K-12 contexts. Manuscripts recommended by the Editorial Board for publication go through a second level of review, which is more extensive and involves substantive feedback on the content and writing.
