For images not created by the author, the author is responsible for securing permission to reuse any image from the copyright holder of the image.

The Reviewers will look for the following:

Is the work in keeping with the purpose of the Journal? Is it written clearly and does it convey to the reader alternative views that contribute to our understanding of the arts and teaching and learning?

Does the discussion show connections to the historical framework of the discipline or exemplars, while expanding our perceptions of what is possible?

The Journal welcomes expansive, creatively written manuscripts and artwork that could include poetry, video, photography, interviews, short dramas, and memoirs of historical significance to the arts and teaching and/or what is listed in the formal "Call."

Accepted submissions will undergo a visual design treatment by our copy editor. To help with this process, authors will be given more formatting guidelines to follow upon acceptance. Adherence to these guidelines will help speed the final stage of publication.
