Journal of Educational Leadership in Action
A global platform for ongoing dialogue in research based practice of educational leadership




About the Journal of Educational Leadership in Action


ELA, Journal of Educational Leadership in Action, is an open access online peer review journal offering its readers a global platform for dialogue on research-based educational practice. ELA is published by the Department of Educational Leadership, School of Education at Lindenwood University.

The research you will discover at ELA covers a wide range of topics: administration, instruction, curriculum, assessment, adult learning, higher education, and international education. Interdisciplinary researchers are encouraged to submit.

ELA's online design is interactive and includes a rare opportunity to hear directly from the researcher. Using a multi-media approach, you will be able to listen to the author sharing details regarding methodology, the context in which their study was completed, and the results fostering new questions for further research.

ELA accepts manuscripts on a rolling basis. Before you submit, we ask that you develop an ELA account at no cost. Contact information will be kept confidential and allow the ELA publishing staff to send you a note when we upload a new video or publish a new edition. We hope you'll consider ELA for your next publication.
