How to Review a Manuscript for "TEACHING Exceptional Children"
Ludlow, Barbara L.; Dieker, Lisa A.; Powell, Selma
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v46 n6 p213-218 Jul-Aug 2014
Professional journals are an integral component of information dissemination and professional development in the field of special education. Peer review of manuscripts submitted for consideration for publication in journals is the cornerstone of the professional review process, providing editors with advice about the value of the information presented and feedback to authors to guide them in making revisions when needed. However, reviews for manuscripts submitted to scholarly journals for practitioners are different from reviews for research journals, given that reviewers must also judge the usefulness and readability of the content. This article describes how the review process for "TEACHING Exceptional Children" is conducted and what experts, practitioners, and students need to do to conduct and prepare a thoughtful review for this and other journals for practitioners.
