Submission guidelines

We are keen to encourage collaboration and debate by representing a wide range of views, and welcome submissions from teachers, researchers, teacher educators, and all others engaged in supporting educators and the education system. Impact includes contributions in the following formats:

  • Original research articles
  • Perspectives on the journal theme
  • Case studies
  • Teacher reflections on a piece of research that has informed your practice

Each issue of Impact is themed, but we are also open to any submissions which have particular relevance for classroom practice; this enables Impact to include timely research, even where this does not fit in the current theme. We run a relatively short publishing schedule, with calls for papers usually being issued 4-6 months before publication of an issue. Initial calls for papers require a title and short abstract, which is then reviewed. Full submissions are then requested, with submissions being peer-reviewed and returned for revision before approved final articles are published in the print and / or online versions of Impact..

Calls for papers are published on the news section of the Chartered College’s main website.
