Manuscript Submission and Review Procedures​

(NOTE: Some articles are solicited by the Editor, often from speeches made at professional meetings. Others are selected from unsolicited manuscripts sent to the Editor.)

Manuscripts should be consistent with the style described in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (5th ed., 2001), available from APA Order Dept., P.O. Box 2710, Hyattsville, MD 20784-0710.

Authors should be parsimonious in the use of tables, graphs, and figures. Avoid footnotes when possible. Articles on examples of good practices in educational measurement and articles presenting contrasting views concerning the educational role of testing are welcome. (NOTE: All manuscripts [solicited or unsolicited] that are considered for publication in the Articles section are to be sent out to at least three reviewers. Except for the Presidential Address, these should be blind reviews which advise the Editor on appropriateness and quality of manuscript or publication in EM:IP. Presidential addresses may be sent out for comments and suggestions for improvement at the Editor's discretion. The reviewer's recommendations are advisory to the Editor who has responsibility for making the decision to publish the article. [In order to be timely, an Editor may make a decision after only two of the three reviews have been returned.] The Editor conveys the decision, along with specific requests for necessary revisions, to the author. Each author receives verbatim the comments of the reviewers, who remain anonymous to the author. Each reviewer receives a copy of the Editor's letter to the author and the other reviewers' comments.)
