Author Guidelines

Submissions should be approximately 750-1,000 words in length. Case study should follow the template provided with a title, the author/institution named, tags, a section for Setting/Context as necessary, a section for the case itself, and 5-6 discussion questions. To encourage dialogue, the discussion questions at the end should be thought-provoking and open-ended, without clear, definitive answers. 

Names, position titles, organizations, specific places, events, and all other identifying details must be changed for privacy or fictitiously created. Case studies should not identify real people or organizations. Where it does not compromise the privacy of individuals or organizations, authors should accurately name specific countries or large cultural groups. In fact, case studies that are an amalgamation of multiple incidents, rather than a strict truth-telling, are desired. That said, a key criterion for the review of submission is that they be realistic and believable. Other criteria include relevance to international education, complexity of discussion evoked, and significance of the topic. The case studies should be adaptable to various kinds of professional development and learning.

After ensuring that the case study is unlikely to engender any legal liability (defamation), submissions will be evaluated based on four criteria:

  1. Relevance and significance of the case study to international education
  2. Believability/Realisticness of the case study
  3. Complexity of discussion evoked
  4. Non-judgemental/Unbiased

Detailed description of the review criteria and the process of review are available.
