Following the last post, here is more information about English in Education journal and how to write for it. English in Education provides a research forum for the subject community to explore the philosophy and practice of English teaching. The journal complements the Association’s professional journal Teaching English and supports NATE’s work in sharing and advocating good practice at all levels from early years to higher education. We want as many people as possible to get involved so the whole community is represented: teachers, learners, researchers, consultants and everyone who wants to support and improve English education. Please see the journal’s Aims & Scope for more information.
English in Education accepts research papers, review articles and creative writing (usually poems) related to the teaching of English. We occasionally publish extended articles to explore complex matters in more depth. One or more issues per year is devoted to a current or emerging aspect of English education that requires special attention. Once your paper has been assessed for suitability by the editor, it will be double blind peer reviewed by independent, anonymous expert referees.
Guidance for Authors
Please follow the following guidance as closely as possible, to ensure your paper matches the journal’s requirements. For general guidance on the publication process at Taylor & Francis please visit the Author Services website. For fuller, detailed guidance on all aspects of publishing in the journal, please see Instructions for Authors.
Preparing your Paper
Research papers should normally be between 4000 and 6000 words, including the abstract (approx. 200 words), tables, references and captions. Please use the Chicago Author-Date system of referencing and keep endnotes to a minimum. An EndNote output style is also available to assist you. You should include between 3 and 6 keywords to help make your article more discoverable.
Extended papers should be as above but may contain between 7000 and 15000 words.
Review articles will usually be between 600 and 2000 words, but there is flexibility here to allow for longer treatment of particularly significant books or topics.
Poems will normally be up to 40 lines in length, but again some flexibility is allowed.
Please refer to these quick style guidelines when preparing your paper. Use British (-ise) spelling style and double quotation marks, except where “a quotation is ‘within’ a quotation”. Long quotations should be indented without quotation marks.
Formatting and templates
Papers may be submitted in Word format. Figures should be saved separately from the text. To assist you in preparing your paper, we provide Word formatting templates.
