Guidelines for Submission
Micronesian Educator publishes scholarly articles that come from a wide range of areas of education research and related disciplines. The journal serves as a forum to share empirical research findings, literature reviews, theoretical perspectives, and practical applications in such areas. To receive full consideration, completed manuscripts (as Word documents) must be electronically sent to Dr. Yukiko Inoue (email@example.com).

Manuscript Style: Authors should prepare manuscripts in accordance with the guidelines delineated in the current Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA). Manuscripts, including references and tables, should ordinarily consist of a maximum of 35 typed, double-spaced pages, using 11-12 point type. Do not justify right margins. An abstract of 120-150 words should be on a separate page. The manuscripts begin with a title page (the first page), followed by an abstract on the second page. The body of the manuscripts therefore begins on the third page. Brief reports of research are not encouraged. Authors must certify that all manuscripts submitted for publication are original and have not been simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere. The review process normally takes 2-3 months.
Title Page: Authors must include their names, titles, institutions, mailing addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers, and e-mail addresses on the first page. Because members of the review board anonymously review manuscripts, these author notes should appear only on the title page (thus, the first page). Authors should take care that the manuscript itself does not identify them.
Quotations: Quotations over 500 words require permission for reproduction from the copyright holder. The author must secure such permission. Forward a copy of the permission letter (or a copy of the permission e-mail) to the journal editor.
Footnotes: Avoid footnotes wherever possible. Please do not use endnotes.
References: All references cited in the text should be listed, in alphabetical order, in a Reference section, following APA format. Check all references for completeness and accuracy. Ensure that all sources mentioned in the Reference section are listed in the text and vice versa.
Tables and Figures: Each table should be on a separate sheet of paper following its reference in the manuscript. Tables should be kept to a minimum. Include only the essential data and combine tables wherever possible. Figures (such as graphs, illustrations, and line drawings) should be supplied as camera-ready art printed on high-quality white paper.
Finally, the editor reserves the right to make publication conditional on editorial changes in manuscripts to achieve greater clarity. Revisions will be made only after consultation with the author. Note: There is no deadline. You may submit your manuscript at any time.
