Journal Submission Guidelines

The ASAHPERD Journal is looking for articles that communicate theory, research and practice in an ASAHPERD (health, physical education, recreation, or dance) discipline. Acceptable topics include teaching techniques; research; Alabama state resources and services; meeting Alabama state or national standards; philosophy; advocacy and policy appropriate for Alabama; and reviews of web resources, books, and audiovisuals.

Manuscripts must meet the most current APA Guidelines, be submitted electronically as a word document in portrait configuration (not landscape), and should not exceed 10 pages single-spaced, Arial, 12 font, fully justified. Headers should be centered, sub headers left justified. Do not insert any extra blank spaces or special formatting. The current schedule for publication is fall and spring. Acceptance of articles for publication is ongoing.

Please include a cover letter with your credentials (student or faculty and your university affiliation or place of employment) and a statement that the article is not being considered for publication elsewhere.

Pre-professional undergraduate and graduate student submissions must be accompanied by a cover letter on official university letterhead from a faculty sponsor (even if NOT listed as a co-author) that they have reviewed the paper and vouch that it is in condition worthy to be submitted to a peer- reviewed journal. As skills in any new level of expertise are developed through supervised experience, we are requesting faculty sign and provide their contact information for an undergraduate or graduate student to ensure that the work is of high quality and was produced as part of a guided experience.

Thank you! We look forward to receiving your article.
