About This Journal

The Journal of Educational Supervision (JES) is the premier peer-reviewed journal in educational supervision. As a peer-reviewed, open-access journal that features the work of scholars and practitioners who address the nexus of theory and practice in educational supervision, we invite submissions from educators with various backgrounds. JES is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal publishes empirical and descriptive articles, including submissions that address the following:

  • Conceptual papers: A conceptual paper in JES addresses a position, concept, theory, or conceptual framework as it relates to supervision. The recommended length is between 5000-6000 words.
  • Empirical Research papers: Empirical studies published in JES use qualitative or quantitative data from a study to add to the research literature on educational supervision. Submissions should include traditional headings for empirical articles (introduction, literature review, theoretical framework, methods, findings, discussion, conclusion). The recommended length is between 5000-6000 words.
  • Developing Scholarship papers: Developing scholarship submissions published in JES are explicitly reserved for graduate students studying educational supervision or for those who have recently completed their doctorate degree (JES suggests in the last year). Those submitting must confirm their enrollment in a graduate program and consider the opportunity to publish with their advisor. A Developing Scholarship submission can be either conceptual or empirical. See information above regarding these requirements. The recommended length is between 5000-6000 words.
  • Connecting Theory to Practice papers: Submissions that connect theory to practice can come from practitioners or researchers, but the thrust of the submission is to create dialogue about the application of theory and practice. Submissions in this category should be written in a conversational manner and be written for practitioners and give guidance on how to improve supervisory practices. The recommended length is between 2000-3000 words.
