About the Journal

Focus and Scope

The Canadian Journal for Educational Administration and Policy (CJEAP) is devoted to scholarly and critical works in the field of educational administration. The articles that it accepts for review must address administrative or policy issues relevant to education and educational systems in Canada. Comparative articles as well as expositions on educational administration in relation to sociology, philosophy, history, and theory are welcomed. It is a forum for articles addressing the administration of schools and higher education institutions, Indigenous educational contexts, and the education of adult learners. CJEAP accepts contributions from scholars, policy makers, graduate students, practitioners, and researchers in education and related fields.

Peer Review Process

Submissions to CJEAP are double-blind peer reviewed. All manuscripts are reviewed by the editorial team to determine suitability for potential publication in CJEAP. Once a manuscript has passed editorial review, it is sent out to 3-4 peer reviewers. Peer review is expected to take between 4 to 8 weeks depending on reviewer availability. Corresponding authors are notified of editorial decisions after peer review and are provided with reviewer and editor feedback. 

CJEAP does not charge article professing fees for publication, and authors should only submit through this site. CJEAP does not use third party intermediaries to solicit submissions or to communicate with authors.
