The purpose of the Journal of Leadership, Equity, and Research is to advance the understanding of equity in K-12 and higher education systems. The editors have an open submission policy and seek manuscripts on a wide variety of issues confronting leaders focused on equity. We will seek to publish original work that describes quantitative or qualitative research, surveys, policy analyses, and promising practices.
Types of Submission

Essays/Reactions describe new developments related to equity and may address issues of relevance to the field of education in general. These articles should not exceed 3000 words, all-inclusive.
Case Stories describe particular events related to equity practices. They could include novel approaches, description of specific cases that may be instructive to the field, or courageous attempts to improve practice. Case Stories should not exceed 2000 words.
