The International Reading Association's prestigious journals have released calls for submissions.
The Reading Teacher Call for Teaching Tips
Share your best practices! The Reading Teacher (RT) editors Diane Barone and Marla Mallette seek Teaching Tips, which are about 2,000 words in length and focus on a single, research-based application for improving literacy. Teaching Tips go through a peer review process. See the RT submission guidelines here!
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy Call for Submissions
Incoming Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy (JAAL) editors Margaret Hagood and Emily Skinner are now accepting submissions of articles for peer review. Read JAAL's author guidelines here and submit your manuscript today! Submissions are also invited for Literacy Lenses, a new feature that will appear in JAAL beginning in September 2012. The column features essays written by current middle school and high school teachers, media specialists, librarians, literacy coaches, curriculum specialists, administrators, preservice teachers, teacher educators, and adolescent and adult learners. These short, nonacademic pieces (written in first person, without citations or references) will highlight diverse perspectives on teaching and learning with literacies to inspire reader reflection. Literacy Lenses submissions should be approximately 500 words and include a photograph if possible (e.g., high resolution photo of the author or the learning context profiled, with appropriate photo releases). If your essay is selected for publication, you will receive a one-year, online-only subscription to any IRA journal for either yourself or a colleague. E-mail your essay to JAAL@reading.org with “Literacy Lenses” in the subject line.

Through November 2011, Reading Research Quarterly (RRQ) editors Ian Wilkinson and David Bloome are accepting submissions of articles for peer review. Beginning December 1, 2011, incoming editors Susan Neuman and Linda Gambrell will take over adjudication for RRQ. Read RRQ's author guidelines here and submit your manuscript today!
