Description: Writing & Pedagogy is an international, peer-reviewed journal devoted to the theory and practice of writing within education. W&P aims to encourage dialog and to develop synergy across disciplines and levels of education around the issues and practices of writing. With these aims in mind, W&P solicits articles focused on K-12 (primary through secondary) and college/university writing in English, language arts, and other disciplines. W&P seeks both full-length and short articles on the theory and practice of teaching writing, pedagogical issues and practices of writing in the disciplines, teaching writing to speakers whose primary language is other than English, writing technologies and online contexts, administration of writing programs, assessment of writing, and book reviews. The journal will be published in both online and hardcopy versions and will appear twice yearly, in Spring and Autumn. W&P is seeking articles for Volume 1, 2009 in all of the categories listed below. Please submit your contribution for Volume 1 using the online submission system provided on this site (For Authors, at the top of this page, or contact the editor) by 15 May 2008 deadline. Research Matters Full-length articles (7500-9000 words) describing original research, critically reviewing research studies, or otherwise discussing issues of theory and research related to writing and pedagogy. Articles reporting any type of research (linguistic, comparative, ethnographic, survey, historical) are welcome. Evidence of adherence to research guidelines such as review by institutional review board (IRB) may be requested where relevant. Reflections on Practice Mid-length articles (2000-4000 words) addressing practical concerns related to writing and pedagogy or describing and critically reflecting on original teaching practices and setting these in a larger context of educational issues or writing theory. We are particularly interested in reflections on teaching ideas that have been refined over a period of time in response to circumstances, or that compare different approaches in relation to actual effects on the students or other outcomes.
