The Academy of Educational Leadership Journal (AELJ) is sponsored by the Academy of Educational Leadership, an affiliate of the Allied Academies. The Editor of the Academy oversees the double blind, peer review process, as well as the appointment of the Editorial Review Board. The Journal has an acceptance rate of 25% and publishes theoretical, empirical or applied research in higher education (except economic or entrepreneurship education). The mission of the Academy is to expand the boundaries of the literature by supporting the exchange of ideas and insights which further the understanding of higher education.
Authors of manuscripts are invited to make direct submissions at any time. In addition, the Journal encourages participants in Allied Academies' conferences to submit their manuscripts for accelerated review. The current time for review of a direct submission is approximately two months. The current time for review for papers submitted to a conference for accelerated review is three weeks. For more information about submitting your manuscript for consideration, please visit our Journal Submission Instructions page.
More details on the types of manuscripts published and the categories of research accepted are displayed in the Journal Matrix section of this website. Authors who would like to discuss the potential interest in a manuscript may contact the Editor by email. Individuals interested in becoming members of the Editorial Board should also contact the Editor by email. The Journal is currently seeking to expand its Board.
