How to Submit an Article
If you want to contribute....

Submission of an article to Educational Developments implies that it has not been published elsewhere and that it is not currently being considered for publication by any other publisher or editor.

All material should be submitted to the Editorial Committee via the SEDA Office, in electronic format.

Everyone involved with Educational Developments works on it only part of the time and so please be patient if it takes some time to process your submission. All papers will be reviewed by at least two people and expert advice sought where appropriate.

The Editorial Committee of Educational Developments welcomes contributions for consideration on any aspects of educational development likely to be of interest to readers.

The audience is drawn from educators in all fields and disciplines. You should therefore not assume specialist knowledge, but write clear, straightforward accounts in plain English. When describing projects, please give concrete detail. Articles accepted for publication may be subject to editing. All authors will receive a copy of the issue their article is published in.

For further guidance on submission see the contributor guidelines .

If your article is accepted and published in print form (online versions of the magazine are available one year after printed publication) you are welcome to scan the article as a PDF and place it within your own university’s repository. 

Call for Reviewers
