Research Article Submissions
The journal welcomes submissions under the broad umbrella of educational biography. We include research into the lives of educators and those whose lives are educative, including traditional biographical accounts as well as additional biographical methods such as narrative, oral history, autobiography, ethnography, autoethnography, self-study.

All manuscripts must be prepared according to the Chicago Manual of Style (16th edition). Note that Vitae Scholasticae: The Journal of Educational Biography uses the Notes method rather than the Author-Date method. Please consult the Style Guidelines for more information.

Manuscripts should be a maximum of 30 pages in length (including references), double-spaced, printed in 12-point font, and have a 1″ margin on all sides. Authors may submit manuscripts electronically (preferred!) or in hard copy. For electronic submissions, Microsoft Word or Wordperfect files are accepted. All identifying information (author’s name, affiliation, position, fax number, and e-mail address) should be submitted in a separate electronic file. For hardcopy submissions, authors should submit three copies of their manuscripts, accompanied by a cover sheet containing the author’s name, affiliation, position, fax number, and e-mail address.

Identifying information should not appear in the manuscript in order to ensure impartial review. Manuscripts are reviewed anonymously by at least two members of the Editorial Board or affiliates. All submissions are acted upon as quickly as possible. Usually, decisions are made within 3 months. All statements of fact or points of view in articles are the responsibility of authors and do not represent any official position of the International Society for Educational Biography.
