EDGE is a biannual online (April and October) publication for parents, teachers, and other professionals who are interested in diverse student populations. Manuscripts may address all areas of diversity that pertain to practices, policy, or applications of research.

EDGE is a peer-reviewed publication. The editors refer manuscripts to qualified reviewers who have expertise in a specific area. Reviewers’ comments are then provided to the author by the editors. To avoid delay in the publication process, the author should follow these instructions:

Manuscripts should represent only original work that has not been published previously or is not being considered for publication elsewhere. If copyrighted material is used, copies of letters granting permission for publication should be included. Manuscripts should be between 3,000 and 10,000 words long. The manuscript and references should follow the APA style as outlined in the 6th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. Along with a list of 2–5 keywords and an abstract of 100–150 words (for feature articles only), a cover page must be included that consists of the author’s name, title, school and program affiliation, home and work addresses, phone numbers and email address.

Tables, figures, illustrations, and photographs should be used to present information, which is also discussed in the manuscript. If accepted for publication, tables, figures, illustrations, and photographs will need to be in their native file format to maintain their high resolution.

Include a full reference for each citation that is mentioned in the text on a separate page at the end of the manuscript.

The author must submit a brief 50–100 word biography.

Only electronic submissions will be accepted. Please send manuscripts and accompanying information to edge.tag.editors@gmail.com
