IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING NEW SUBMISSIONS AND NEW HOME FOR JPAAP

7th March 2022 update: Please note that JPAAP is currently moving to a new location. To allow for this transition we are now closed to new submissions. Our final issue of our latest Volume was published in January 2022.  By the end of March/early April 2022 we will be at our new location and open to new submissions. All of the issues published to date will remain available under existing links and DOIs once the journal moves location. We will send an announcement to all registered authors, editors and reviewers when the journal is re-opened.

14th March 2022 update: JPAAP is now in the process of being copied and migrated to our new location. The journal will be 'locked' from 12.00pm UK time on March 14th. This will mean that authors, reviewers and editors will no longer be able to log into the journal. If you are a reviewer who is currently undertaking a review, please note this means you will not be able to submit your review until the journal re-opens. JPAAP will re-open in full on Monday 4th April at which point reviews and new submissions will be gladly welcomed and received.

 

Journal Ethos

The Journal of Perspectives in Applied Academic Practice aims to provide a supportive publishing outlet to allow established and particularly new authors to contribute to the scholarly discourse of academic practice (both generally and in their discipline area) through the publication of papers that are theory-based and supported by evidence, as well as through the publication of Opinion Pieces and ‘On the Horizon’ papers on emerging work.

The Submissions and Author Guidelines provide further guidance on the thematic areas covered by the journal, and the format for submissions to the journal.

In relation to the general ethos of the Journal of Perspectives in Applied Academic Practice, the journal exists not only for the publication of papers within our thematic scope but also as a collegiate and developmental platform for new authors, those new to journal reviewing, and for scholars who are seeking to gain experience in journal editing and publishing.

This developmental ethos manifests itself in a range of activities and opportunities that currently include the following:

  • Direct support for authors who are seeking to publish their first paper in one or more of the thematic areas of the journal, through assigning ‘critical friends’ from within the editorial team who will be happy to advise on the development of initial ideas for the formats of paper we publish. Prospective authors should consult the Submissions and Author Guidelines.
  • Peer support for those new to reviewing The Journal of Perspectives in Applied Academic Practice welcomes academics with experience in the thematic areas of the journal, but who are new to the journal submission reviewing process, to become involved as reviewers for the journal. This will include an opportunity to work for an initial period of reviewing with a colleague who is already experienced as a reviewer.
  • Editorial internships The journal will soon be offering editorial internships, normally two a year, for academics who are experienced in the thematic areas of the journal, have some publications of their own and experience as a reviewer, and who wish to develop knowledge and experience on the editorial side of journal publishing. Further information on our first round of editorial internships will be forthcoming.
  • Special issues The Journal of Perspectives in Applied Academic Practice welcomes the opportunity to work alongside colleagues in the field to develop Special Issues of the journal dedicated to particular themes or emerging areas of work. Having a good idea for a special issue, and being willing to take on Guest Editor responsibilities for the special issue (with support provided from the regular Editorial Team for the journal), is much more important than prior editing experience.
