Call for Papers – The Journal of Educational Administration

The Journal of Educational Administration is open to submissions!

About the Journal

Articles published in JEA demonstrate the editors' continuing commitment to theory, empirical research and critical analysis of the field's development. JEA's primary focus is on understanding issues of leadership and management in K-12 schools and school systems.

This broad focus includes studies exploring:

  • How leadership is shaped by the cultural and national context of schools
  • How leadership effects on teachers and teaching
  • Features of the school organization (e.g., culture, climate, health)
  • Educational quality and student outcomes
  • Human resource processes
  • Human resource management in education systems
  • Change management
  • Administrator and teacher selection and evaluation
  • School leader preparation and development

Although the majority of papers published in JEA are based on studies that report empirical data, the journal does not give priority to quantitative, qualitative or mixed methods research. Regardless of the empirical research paradigm, we expect a high standard of reporting the methods of the research. JEA also remains one of the primary international venues for reporting theoretical critiques and systematic reviews of research. This reflects our belief in the role that journals play in supporting the productive synthesis of knowledge.
