Call for Proposals – Host JCEL Editorial Functions

April 30th, 2018 by


UCEA seeks propsals to host the editorial function of the Journal of Cases of Educational Leadership (JCEL).

JCEL publishes peer-reviewed cases appropriate for use in educational leadership preparation programs across the globe. The journal publishes a wide range of cases embodying relevant and timely presentations of issues germane to this field. Cases provide a narrative and teaching notes that prompt rich discussion and inquiry about these educational leadership issues. The journal encourages cases that are supported by digital media or other creative forms of expression.

The successful applicant will have faculty with a strong publication record in the field and demonstrated experience with the editorial process (as editor, associate editor, or editorial board member). Faculty serving on the editorial team should also be well networked in the educational leadership field. A stipend is provided.


Key Dates:

Letters of intent to submit a proposal are requested by August 15, 2018.

Full proposals are due by October 1, 2018. Training and transition will begin in February, 2019.

The new editorial team will assume full leadership of JCEL on July 1, 2019.


UCEA sponsors this journal in an ongoing effort to improve the preparation and practice of educational leaders for the benefit of schools and children. UCEA’s goals center on building knowledge for the field and providing quality preparation and lifelong learning experiences for aspiring and current school and school system leaders. The journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics.
