Call for papers for the next edition of Journal of Leadership, Equity and Research (JLER)

The Center for Leadership, Equity and Research (CLEAR), along with its online peer-reviewed scholarly journal, the Journal of Leadership, Equity and Research (JLER), is seeking submissions of manuscripts of use and interest to education leaders in California and beyond. We seek empirical studies, concept papers, policy briefs, professional experience reflective essays, and other genres. We are strongly interested in empirical studies and concept papers in the area of equity, advocacy and mentoring.

The Journal of Leadership, Equity and Research, a publication of CLEAR, is focused on providing a multidisciplinary forum to provide a broad range of education professionals an avenue to share scholarly knowledge in the area of Equity and Leadership in K-20 education. The Journal of Leadership, Equity and Research (JLER) is a component of the research strand of CLEAR, a non-profit organization focused on eliminating the equity gap in educational settings.

CLEAR aims to publish peer-reviewed manuscripts that add to the body of knowledge and focus on research and practical applications to practitioners of K-20 education and affiliated institutions. To achieve this goal, the journal seeks to promote research in elementary, secondary, and postsecondary institutions through articles on advocacy, equity, mentoring, cultural proficiency, diversity, community engagement, and the academic, personal, and social experiences of students; professional issues focused on equity for faculty and staff; and the regulatory policies impacting such institutions. In addition, research and manuscripts focusing on such topics as social and emotional health, development of leaders of color, leadership development of diverse populations are highly encouraged and will receive special consideration.

Book and research review submissions on any of the above strands and topics are welcome.
