Peer Review Process

  • The author or at least one co-author must be a current member of the Association for International Agricultural and Extension Education (AIAEE).
  • The author owns the copyright to the work being submitted or is authorized by the copyright owner or owners to submit the article. Authors are the initial owners of the copyrights to their works (an exception in the non-academic world to this might exist if the authors have, as a condition of employment, agreed to transfer copyright to their employer).

In addition, by submitting material to Journal of International Agricultural and Extension Education, the author is stipulating that the material is not currently under review at another journal (electronic or print) and that they will not submit the material to another journal (electronic or print) until the completion of the editorial decision process at Journal of International Agricultural and Extension Education.

Formatting Requirements

Initial formatting of the manuscript:

  1. Article Type - All manuscripts should indicate the type of article—Feature or Research Note—on the title page of the manuscript.
    1. Feature – A feature article reports the findings from a fully investigated study. Conceptual/Theoretical and Methodological manuscripts are also encouraged as submission for feature articles. Feature articles are no longer than 20 double-spaced pages, excluding references
    2. Research Note – A Research Note is a concise but complete description of a limited investigation that will not be included in a later manuscript. It serves one of the following purposes: (1) presents initial proof-of-concept results on new ideas or program evaluations, timely issues, or innovative approaches; (2) reports replications or extensions of previously published research that does not merit another full-length manuscript yet provides results that contribute to a greater understanding of the phenomena under study. Research Notes are no longer than 10 double-spaced pages, excluding references
  2. Type Style
    1. Use Times New Roman font for all text in the manuscript.
    2. Use 12-point type for all text in the manuscript.
  3. Margins and Tabs:
    1. Use 1.00-inch margins on all sides.
    2. Do not reset the default tab settings in your manuscript.
  4. Document Spacing:
    Use double-spacing throughout entire manuscript, except:
    • Do not double-space between paragraphs.
    • Do not double-space tables.
    • Do not reset the default line space settings (before and after each line) in your manuscript.
  5. Material:
    1. Use Letter size paper, 8.5 x 11 inches, for all copy. Do not use landscape formatting for any text or Tables.
    2. Prepare all copy flush left; do not use full justification; use left justification only.
    3. Use one space after periods or any punctuation that separates two sentences.
    4. Do not use all capital letters.
    5. Indent the first line of each paragraph; use the indent function for citations equal to or greater than 40 words.
    6. Use the Tables feature rather than using tabs or spacing to align data.
    7. Use hard returns only at the end of a paragraph or other places where lines of copy are broken in the manuscript (such as after each line in a heading or subheading).
    8. Limit the use of numerical and/or bulleted lists in the manuscript; lists detract from overall readability and diminish the “scholarly writing” normally expected in the JIAEE. Use a single tab (do not use indent) between numbers/bullets and typed material.
    9. Follow the APA Publication Manual (7th ed.) for all citations in text and reference list. It is the author’s responsibility to insure strict adherence to APA. Submissions that fail to strictly adhere to APA style may be rejected outright by the Managing Editor without further review.
  • Do not include a title page or abstract. Do not include any identifying information.
  • Do not include headers or footers. These, along with page numbers, will be added as part of our publication process if your manuscript is accepted.
  • Submit your manuscript, including tables, figures, appendices, etc., as a single file (Word, RTF are accepted).
  • Double-space your text.
  • Follow APA Publication Manual (7th ed.) standards for all headings, figures and tables in the manuscript.

Where available, DOIs (digital object identifiers) for citations must be provided and hotlinked in the Word document. As a member of CrossRef, our publisher, New Prairie Press, is required to include DOIs. Use the free DOI lookup on CrossRef's website to check your citations.

There are additional rules governing the formatting of the final submission. See Final Manuscript Preparation Guidelines for details.
