Contributor Guidelines

Contributors are welcomed from all areas of scholarship relevant to student success. Manuscripts are expected to be original works able to withstand intensive peer review. Topics may address any area of educational scholarship, including humanities, science, social sciences, fine arts, politics, curriculum, assessment, pedagogy, as well as institutional policy, historical perspectives, and professional themes. While the journal serves primarily Bermudian interests, any manuscript submitted for publication should be of international scope and have scholarly significance for research, policy, and practice.

Authors, rather than the editor or Bermuda College, bear responsibility for accuracy and opinions set forth in articles published in Voices in Education.

The guidelines listed below will assist contributors as they write their articles for the Bermuda College Journal. Guidelines and timelines must be observed.

  • Abstract and key words. The abstract should be a maximum of 200 words. The abstract should be followed by a list of key words.
  • Manuscript content. Articles are accepted for publication with the understanding that the Editor and Editorial Board reserve the right to edit for clarity and style. Articles that are reviewed and edited may be sent back to the author for revisions.
       Articles, where applicable, must contain relevant empirical data. Authors are responsible for the accuracy of references and references citations. Articles without references will be rejected. Manuscripts will not be returned.
  • Illustrations and tables. Illustrations and tables must be printed on separate sheets and numbered. All illustrations and tables must have a corresponding reference in the text.
  • Citations. Online sources should be accompanied by the most recent access date.
  • Manuscript ethics. Do not submit articles that are under consideration for publication in another periodical, have been published in another periodical, or have been presented at a conference. Articles become the property of the Bermuda College Journal.
