  3. JPED’s Purpose • JPED is a peer-reviewed journal that “welcomes submissions of innovative and scholarly manuscripts relevant to the issues and practices of educating students with disabilities in postsecondary educational programs.” • Historically, JPED welcomes emerging scholars and practitioners. • The Journal also seeks to broaden its North American focus by publishing research and practices that reflect a more international scope and increasing the international composition of its editorial review boards.

  4. Accessing JPED • JPED is a benefit of membership. JPED uses universally-accessible formats including: • Daisy • Text (Word) • MP3 • Audio • PDF • Print copies are available for additional fee • JPED is searchable through ERIC online and libraries that subscribe to the EBSCO "Education Research Complete" database. • Back issues of all JPEDs are available: http://www.ahead.org/publications/jped

  5. Publication Frequency • JPED is published 4 times a year: March, June, September, December • Each issue typically includes: • 5-6 research articles • 1-2 Practice Briefs • 1 book review • Special issues: • Disability Services Best Practices (September 2016) • Intellectual Disabilities (September 2018)

  6. JPED’s 2018-2019 year • 83 manuscript submissions • 73 Research/Policy manuscripts • 10 Practice Brief manuscripts • 0 book review • 28% were accepted, 68% rejected, 4% under review • Typically 3-4 issues “in the wings” ready for publication

  7. Review Process • Manuscript developed and submitted • Content • Writing to meet APA standards • Manuscript assigned to reviewers for blind review • Editorial Review Board has 57 reviewers • Practice Brief Review Board has 21 reviewers They individually recommend that the manuscript be accepted, invite to revise and resubmit, or reject

  8. Review Process • Editor makes a decision about the manuscript (accepted, invite to revise and resubmit, reject), blind feedback is sent to authors (double blind review process) • Revisions can be extensive, deadlines for resubmissions are established • Process usually takes four to twelve months

  9. Research Articles • Research: Original quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-method research (25-35 pages) • Integration: Integrate research of others, compare/contrast theories, critique results, and/or provide context for future exploration • Innovation: Propose new theory, approach, or service delivery model based on review of research/literature • Policy Analysis: Analyze, critique, or present implications of public policy, statutes, regulation, and litigation

  13. Implications/Relevance • JPED is an applied research journal whose primary focus is disability services educators or disability studies • Our readers need to know the implications of the information being shared, and/or how the material is relevant to the disability services educators and/or others in the field • Content and writing are both important
