Focus and Scope

Antistasis: An Open Educational Journal is a semi-annual publication that aims to cultivate the discussion and dissemination of educational ideas, research, and developments to the general public – not only to academics. Each issue engages a compelling theme through the compilation of short, inter-related articles written for a public audience including academics, graduate students, teacher candidates, educators and administrators. Authors should assume that the audience is not familiar with the theory, jargon, or literature that characterizes distinct fields of academic writing. Antistasis is indexed in and available through EBSCOHOST and ProQuest.

Issues may be curated by one or more guest editors, who have broad leeway in setting the theme of the issue, as well as making editorial decisions such as manuscript length and the nature of the peer review process (if any) for the particular issue.

Potential authors should read the "Announcements" page to determine (a) the theme of the upcoming issue of the journal, (b) the page limits for submissions to that issue (typically set at 1000 - 1500 words, although it varies from issue to issue), and (c) whether or not submissions to a particular issue will be peer reviewed.

Individuals wishing to propose a theme for a future issue and/or to serve as a guest editor should contact the Editor in Chief for Antistasis: Dr. Patricia Peterson, plp@unb.ca.
