Images (photos, graphics, tables and charts) within the article should also be uploaded as supplementary files in .jpg format. Copyrighted images require written permission from copyright holder.

File types: Articles should be submitted in Microsoft Word file types to allow for editing/commentary.

Number of words: in education limits submissions to between 5000 and 8000 words; however, the digital format does enable editors to be flexible with length of submissions.

Multi-Media: in education encourages the use of images, video, etc. (mp4 format for videos. jpg for photos)

Spelling: The Canadian Oxford English Dictionary is to be used as the guideline for in education.

Submissions to in education should follow the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 7th edition formatting standards (EXCEPTION: for the blind review process, author/s names and contact information and any other identifying aspects are removed before submitting the article).

Short List of new APA formatting requirements:

Title (Cover Page ): recommended length is no more than 12 words. Upper and lower case letters, centred and positioned on the upper section of the cover page.

Author/s Note (Page 2): Paragraph 1: Authors names and affiliations Include ORCID iD number if you have one. No credentials are given. Paragraph 2: Note if any changes to the authors' affiliations. Paragraph 3: Disclosures and acknowledgments. Paragraph 4: Include contact information

Abstract (Page 2): include a brief, comprehensive summary of the contents and purpose of the article/research. Include Keywords.

Introduction: (Page 3 of your article) Because the introduction is clearly identified by its position in the manuscript, it DOES NOT carry a heading labeling it the introduction.

No Running Head: When an article is accepted for publication with in education, please DO NOT INCLUDE a running head

Headings (APA): Five sequential levels. Note that the title of the paper appears on the first page (centered and in upper and lower case letters), but does not count as a level of heading.

The headings are as follows:

Endnotes not footnotes: Because this journal is published online in HTML format, authors should use endnotes instead of footnotes. There are no pages in HTML.

The singular "they" is endorsed, consistent with inclusive usage.

Bias-Free Language: Guidance on age, disability, gender, racial and ethnic identity, and sexual orientation has been updated to reflect best practices in Chapter 5.

Mechanics of Style:

-use one space following end punctuation.

-quotation marks are now used around examples, rather than italics, to promote accessibility

-updated guidance around lettered and numbered lists in Chapter 6.

-updated guidance around the presentation of numbers.

-greater flexibility for lettered, numbered, and bulleted lists.

Works Credited: In-text citations for works with three or more authors are shortened to the name of the first author plus "et al."

-new guidance on how to cite recorded or unrecorded Traditional Knowledge and Oral Traditions of Indigenous Peoples (see Chapter 8).

Reference List: Include the names of up to 20 authors in references

-DOIs: use hyperlinks -- the label DOI is no longer used. Use "Retrieved from"  only  when a retrieval date is necessary. If no doi is assigned to the online document, include the homepage URL for the periodical.
