Call for Papers for Fall 2014
Submission Deadline: July 15, 2014 Accepting Manuscripts on a Rolling Basis!

The editorial board of the Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis (JCTP) invites you to submit your work for our Fall 2014 Issue. The deadline is July 15th to be considered for our Fall 2014 Issue; however, we encourage rolling submissions and encourage authors to submit as manuscripts are ready. JCTP is a peer-reviewed on-line journal committed to providing a space for critical and progressive scholarship, practice, and activism. Our mission is to create an accessible and inter/transdisciplinary journal that supports awareness and challenges individuals to move towards advocacy. The journal brings together emerging scholars, educators, and activists with the intention of providing recognition to the work of the social justice community. JCTP explores, challenges, and pushes the boundaries among multiple disciplines, while providing all authors with developmental feedback. We especially encourage submissions from graduate students and junior faculty but will also consider work from more senior scholars exploring social justice themes.

Manuscripts submitted to JCTP should contribute to the knowledge base within the field of social justice as it pertains to policy and practice. We are seeking original, innovative, and applicable work relevant to the broad study and practice of social justice education. Special consideration will be given to:

  • Accounts from activists
  • Arts-based research
  • Book reviews
  • Critical inquiry and methodology
  • Policy analysis
  • Social justice practitioner reflections
  • Theoretical essays

Specific Guidelines:
