Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • CJLT’s review process is conducted electronically using the OJS online submission system. Articles must be uploaded in Microsoft Word (.doc) format.
  • Articles must be prepared in letter format and fall between 5000 – 6500 words, including references and tables (not to exceed 7000 words). If you are submitting a Note, Article, Research Report, or Book Review you have clearly indicated this in the metadata and note to Editor.
  • Abstract (not more than 200 words) and Keywords (at least 4) must follow the title.
  • Titles must not be more than 12 words and must not include a question.
  • Tables, figures, references, and appendices must be placed within the article and included in the wordcount.
  • The submission must be accompanied by a letter stating that the manuscript is original material that has not been published and is not being considered for publication elsewhere.
  • If the manuscript contains copyright materials, the author should note this in the cover letter and indicate when letters of permission will be forwarded to the Editor.
  • Full author names, affiliations, and email addresses must be represented on the article and within the metadata, completed upon initial submission.
  • Authors must submit an original and blinded copy of their article. Authors have followed the instructions in the "Ensuring a Blind Review" document (available in the submission upload area) to ensure that a blind copy of their article has been submitted.
  • All electronic references include the DOI if available. If no DOI has been issued, the URL should be included in the reference. References will be included in the wordcount.
  • If the submission is for a Special Issue, indicate the name of the special issue in the title and editor comment section.
  • Authors have read our Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement.
  • The text must adhere to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal. Articles must be formatted according to the most current APA style guidelines (7th edition, 2020)

Author Guidelines

Note: CJLT is currently experiencing a significant increase in the number of submissions, and as a result, the timeline for publication is approximately 18-24 months. CJLT strives to process submissions in a timely manner and is committed to assigning a decision of decline or send for review within 6 months of receipt. CJLT relies on the support and goodwill of content experts for the double-blind peer-review process and therefore timelines for submission of reviews varies. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

Manuscript Preparation

Manuscripts must be prepared in Letter (8 ½ x 11-inch) format and should fall between 5000 - 6500 words, including references and tables (not to exceed 7000 words). Articles must be double-spaced, including quotations and references. Articles must have a title page which includes the title of the manuscript, the full name of the author(s) along with position and institutional affiliation, mailing address, e-mail address, and telephone number of the contact author. An abstract of not more than 200 words must be placed on a separate page following the title page. While the title should appear at the top of the first manuscript page, no reference to the author(s) should appear there or any other place in the manuscript. Elements of style, including headings, tables, figures and references should be prepared according to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 7th Edition, 2020.

Notes Section

Special sections for written treatises are available in some scientific journals.  These sections are meant to differentiate between the protocols of regular publishing and the more creative and novel writing, although still focused on the same field of study or discipline available in special sections. These additional sections are, in writing and perspective, bringing something new to the current narrative and offering opportunities for further debate. (Spoelstra, 2017). 

The Notes section of the Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology is a place for applicable reports and discussion of germane current issues.  Non-empirical reviews of current and potential future states of our field are also included. Published documents in this section of CJLT are not double-blinded or peer-reviewed. They are most often included at the request of the Editors. These publications are offered to contextualize and reference the research articles in the main section of a CJLT issue.  Currently, CJLT issues include a minimum of five empirical peer-reviewed research articles in each of at least three issues per year. Documents in the Notes and Book Review sections are included when available.
