Philosophy of The STEAM Journal
For more information, please see The STEAM Journal Aims and Scope page.
Who Can Submit?
Anyone may submit an original article/artworks to be considered for publication in The STEAM Journal provided he or she owns the copyright to the work being submitted or is authorized by the copyright owner or owners to submit the article. Authors/artists are the initial owners of the copyrights to their works (an exception in the non-academic world to this might exist if the authors have, as a condition of employment, agreed to transfer copyright to their employer).
General Submission Rules
Submitted articles cannot have been previously published, nor be forthcoming in an archival journal or book (print or electronic). Please note: "publication" in a working-paper series does not constitute prior publication. In addition, by submitting material to The STEAM Journal, the author is stipulating that the material is not currently under review at another journal (electronic or print) and that he or she will not submit the material to another journal (electronic or print) until the completion of the editorial decision process at The STEAM Journal. If you have concerns about the submission terms for The STEAM Journal, please contact the editors.
An academic paper of 1000-2500 words: this paper can be theoretical, a discussion of an issue or policy pertaining to STEAM or aspects linked to STEAM such as creativity, innovation, future work force or a research paper. These papers should reflect scholarly and research writing. Submissions using the American Psychological Association APA format are encouraged.
A reflection of 250-500 words: this can be a reflection from the field (any field that is relevant to STEAM) and can be a personal reaction that offers insights into STEAM and related topics. (Up to 4 optional images as JPEG files no larger than 2 MB each may be included, but is not required).
